Dear Linguist,

I will be teaching a course in "Phonetics Applied to Second Language
Teaching", described as an "Introduction to phonetic principles and
their application to teaching and correcting second language
pronunciation".

This is an undergraduate course offered both within a linguistics
program and a teacher training program (to teach French or English as
a Second Language). No previous knowledge of phonetics is necessary.

What would be your personal favorites as a course bibliography, given
the special orientation of this particular course?

I will be happy to compile and post a "Greatest Hits" list.

Please respond to me directly (email address hknoerruottawa.ca)

Thank you!

Message 2: Sociolinguistics of profanity

Subject: Sociolinguistics of profanity

An undergrad sociolinguistics student of mine is interested in writing
a paper on profanity and verbal abuse. I have given this student the
few bibliographic sources I know of on the topic, and I would welcome
further references that my fellow listserv members may be aware of.
