Dear All

	I am puting together a list of phonologists interested in the
Declarative Phonology (DP) framework. This list would be available on the
SIGPHON web page and, the editors permiting, on the links page of LINGUIST.
The idea behind this list is to permit contacts and exchanges between
phonologists interested in this framework.

	If you would be interested, or know anyone who would, of having
your name in such a list please contact me at :

	This list would mainly be a list of addresses available to those
interested in DP. It could also be used as some kind of newsletter for
general informations. Such a newsletter would be moderated in order to
lower the risks of spaming.

Thanks to you all
