Message 1: Language rights in the Northern Ireland Bill of Rights

Date: Wed, 5 Sep 2001 00:20:55 +0100
From: Alison Henry <AM.Henryulst.ac.uk>
Subject: Language rights in the Northern Ireland Bill of Rights

A new Northern Ireland Bill of Rights is being drawn up and will 
have a substantial section on language rights. The Northern Ireland 
Human Rights Commission has now published a consultation 
document outlining what it proposes to include in the Bill of Rights, 
and is requesting comments on this. The language rights section 
can be found at:
http://www.nihrc.org/files/BOR_consultation_16.htm
and those with a knowledge of/interest in language rights issues 
might like to take a look at this and/or send comments.

Message 2: Internet database of applied linguistics

From: Richard Watson Todd <irictoddkmutt.ac.th>
Subject: Internet database of applied linguistics

The database of applied linguistics at
http://mercury.kmutt.ac.th/books/main.asp contains over
5,000 entries of information from books and journals in the
fields of applied linguistics and English language teaching.
It is designed primarily for students at Masters degree
level, but would also be useful for researchers conducting
initial searches in areas they are not familiar with. I hope
that it proves useful.
