Subject: Political Metaphors of Chinese Politicians

Dear Linguists

I have been working on the project

" Metaphors Chinese Politicians Live By(1949-present) "

inspired by Professor Lakoff's conceptual theory of metaphor .
I'll be grateful and most appreciated if any one can offer me some
references on this topic.

Muriel Saville-Troike in "The Ethnography of Communication: An 
Introduction," Second Edition 1989, Blackwell, cites a study by Chiu,
Rosaline K. 1972. Measuring Register Characteristics: A Prerequisite for
Preparing Advanced Level TESOL Programs. I would appreciate any help in
locating this study.

Subject: Sociolinguistics: Language and Identity


Dear all on LINGUIST,

Can someone point me to material (studies, books, 
recent articles etc.) on the sociolinguistic topic language 
and identity please.
I am particularly interested in language and identity in 
relation to German (e.g. Austria, Switzerland, Belgium etc. 
etc.).
- Perhaps someone is currently working on that topic?

Many thanks!
