Dear list subscribers:

In my pragmatic course a student has suggested a topic of research :
Idiomatic expressions and its relation to pragmatics (with special
mention to teaching languages, learning languages, understanding
utterances) I am asking if some researches have already been published
or your reaction from your own experience in the field thanks a lot
for your valuable help!

Training and was asking for any citations referring to this for her
literature review.

Please respond directly to her at Stephanie.Gilbertsonuc.edu .

Message 3: German modal particles

Subject: German modal particles

Dear linguistlist,

My name is Dan Tracy from Monash University, Melbourne, Victoria,
Australia. I am currently writing my fourth year thesis concerning the
modal particles of German and in particular their use in the context
of the "German as a foreign language" classroom. This subject is of
particular interest to me as I have been studying German for a number
of years now (including eighteen months in Germany) and have found
this area to be a particularly unique aspect of linguistics. I would
be very grateful if anyone could let me know of any recent studies
relating to this topic. Thank you.

Dan Tracy, Fourth Year Student, Monash University.
