Would anyone have any references on research that has been done about
insults and pragmatics?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Message 2: Useful Corpus for English Stress

Subject: Useful Corpus for English Stress

 Dear members of Linguist List,

 Is anyone of you aware of a corpus which will help me with my
reserach on English stress patterns? I am making a table of English words
according to gramatical category (noun, adjective, and verb), stress
location (word-final, penultimate, antepenultimate), syllable
types(light, heavy, superheavy). For example, one cell of the table is
nouns with light-light-heavy syllable structure with stress on the final.
 As a non-native speaker of English it is hard for me to complete the
list with examples.

 I am wondering wherther there is any corpus useful for my research on
English stress pattern. If you know of any, would you please inform me of
it? 

 Thank you for your time.

Subject: IPA Fonts

My daughter is taking a course in linguistics. She is looking for set
of fonts that have incorporated into them the International Phonetic
Association symbols. There are two she really needs. I'll attempt to
describe them since I obviously can't type them.

1st: looks like a capital G reversed with a tilde attached. 
She says it is "e" upside down 	and reversed (shwa with r coloring)

2nd: looks like a numeral 3 with a tilde attached
 (stressed shwa with r coloring)

Might there exist a set of fonts she can download for use in her college 
course?


Thanks.
