Message 1: Afro-Caribbean French corpora

Subject: Afro-Caribbean French corpora

I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge researching
syntactic variation in Afro-Caribbean French. I am urgently looking for
an existing corpus preferably from Martinique, Gabon or Cameroon. Can any
subscribers tell me if such a corpus exists at all, or failing that, I'd
be very interested to at least hear from other subscribers working in
this field.

Subject: Need Inuit and Russian marine vocabulary help



We need some help with some native Alaskan languages. 

Karen Dempsey Hayes at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is preparing an
educational program that involves cultures of the North Pacific.
She needs to know how to count to ten in Tlingit, Innuit (Canadian near
Churchill), Haida as well as know the words for sea otter, beluga, harbor
seal, (pacific white-sided) dolphin. She also needs the same info in
Russian. She also would need to know the pronunciation and how it is
written.

Thanks very kindly for your help.
