Subject: Interjections, expression of emotions, child speech

I'm working on my dissertation that concerns reflection of emotions in child
communication.
I've got some questions:

1) Are "Good Lord!", "Hell!" interjections? I Know that Russian
linguistic tradition considers the similar set expressions (like
"Bozhe moy!") as interjections, so does Erwing Hoffman, but Anna
Wierzbicka does not. What are your opinion and is there any leading
tradition?

2) I'm also looking for references on expressing of emotions,
especially from psycholinguistical point of view. By the way, is there
a term or subject like "expressivity" or "expressiveness"?

Thanks a lot

Subject: The language of flirting


I have a student who is doing research in flirtatious language behavior,
and she is having a LOT of trouble finding sources (hours on various
databases). Does anyone have leads on this subject? Please send them to:
