We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

Dear Linguists,

My name is Katja Apanassenko and I'm the 1st year aspirant at the
Institute of Asian and African Studies by Moscow State University. For
about 6 months I am a subscriber of Linguist List. I would like to ask
other linguists a bibliography question concerning my dissertation
(Time and Space in Hausa, a North Nigerian language). I've already
searched through almost every library in Moscow, but I'm sure there
must be many other books or/and useful links on that subject (not
necessary dealing with African languages only but with Time and Space
in general). I would appreciate any suggestion on German, English,
French or Russian.

Thanks for your cooperation

Best regards

Katja Apanassenko

I have read a reference on the list some time ago to a "Year of the
Linguistic Human Rights", supposed to be 2001. Can anyone help me
with more precise information?

I will of course send the answers received out to the list again.

many thanks,

I would like to invite you to participate in an experiment I am
conducting as part of my PhD research on users' interaction with
search results. The experiment is conducted online and should take
less then 10 minutes to complete. After analysing the data, I will
make the results available through my web page.

In order to participate, your browser should allow JavaScript to run
(JavaScript enabled in your browser options). It is best to view the
pages with commercial browsers like Netscape or IE (other browsers may
lose or distort some of the information).

The URL for the experiment is:

Thanks for agreeing to participate!
