FYI Body: Dear Linguists,

I am a linguist working at the Melbourne office of the Lonely Planet publishing
Company in the phrasebook section.

We are interested in producing a phrasebook of Eritrean and Tigrinya.
We require someone fluent in one - or even two - of the above languages
to write a phrasebook, or section of a phrasebook, for us. We would
prefer if the author has either Eritrean or Tigrinya as a firs
language.

If anyone with the prerequisite language skills is interested could they
please contact me. Of course, suitable payment will be made.

Thank you,

Peter D'Onghia
