Message 1: Ashkenazic

Subject: Ashkenazic

Hello,

Can anyone help me find out exactly how (presumably Ashkenazic) Hebrew
would have been pronounced by Warsaw Jews at the time of the Holocaust? I
sing in a choir that is performing a setting of the Sh'ma by Arnold
Schoenberg; the transliteration indicates an Ashkenazic pronunciation, but
I'd like to know exactly how the vowels are supposed to be pronounced.

If you can help, send me an e-mail and I'll send you the transliteration I
have.

Thanks,
Antony Green

I'd like to get in contact with a Finnish linguist, preferable 
someone who's familiar with the colloquial Finnish language of circa 
1880-1900. I have a quick question regarding the use of blasphemy 
and swearwords of this time-period. Please mail me privately:

Do somebody know who is the originator of the notion "PRO"? Is it Chomsky
or somebody else? And where? I'd appreciate if somebody can direct me to a
reference, where the term PRO was first used.
