Subject: Searching for an English to/from Vietnamese Translator

Hello,
I'm currently learning Vietnamese in independent study. I've looked quite a 
bit for a good translator but most seem to be bundles of 30 or more 
languages. I would gladly pay the same cost for one very good translator 
focusing on Vietnamese and English alone. I'm basically teaching myself so 
sound would be a big plus, preferably with the
southern pronunciations. Ability to run on a Mac as well as PC would also 
be very helpful. If you know of a good one that doesn't exactly fit my 
description I'd like to know anyway. On another note, I've tried many fonts 
with Vietnamese roman character support but they do not have all the 
characters for some reason. Please send any suggestions to 
scotthu37hotmail.com. Thanks a lot,
Scott Huynh

Subject: Searching for Articles on the Future of Language

Hi. I'm a writer working on a film treatment about scenarios for the future, 2000-3000 
AD. I'm interested in how language might evolve and change in the future, how people 
might write and talk.... Can anyone direct me to any articles on this subject or to 
any linguists who might work/speculate in this area? I'm unsure where to start....

I'd appreciate any pointers. Please contact me off the list.

Thanks,
David
