Subject: Contrastive Linguistics - Alsatian/English Website

Dear linguist,

As I am the author of a dictionary of Alsatian German and English cognates
American citizens of Alsatian descent might be interested in tracing back
their ancestry by discovering Alsatian through English cognates. Please you
might see our website and point to interesting articles in English such as
contrastive linguistics - Alsatian and English or even copy it . the
website : http://perso.wanadoo.fr/universitepopulaire.dobernai/ 
my e-mail: u.p.obernaiwanadoo.fr 

Thanks for your interest
