Subject: Ling. materials for lang. lab

Our college is renovating its language lab into a multimedia center
powered by Macintosh G3s to exploit multimedia, interactivity, and the
web. I'm interested in finding linguistics-teaching materials
(esp. but not limited to phonetics) available in electronic format --
CD-ROMS, software, websites, etc. (there is some budget for buying
stuff) as well as testimonials on what works well. I'd be interested
in world-languages samples, dialect stuff for American English, stuff
relating to the history of English, language and gender,
transcription-teaching programs, etc., etc., etc.

Please write to me with titles or referrals if you know of anything.

Ladefoged in his "Preliminaries to Linguistics Phonetics" (1971) implies 
that Roman Jakobson considered NASALS as CONTINUANTS in his later works.I 
would appreciate very much if any member of this mailing list informs me 
that in which book/article Jakobson introduces such an idea.

With regards
Kai Ruth
