Message 1: pictures in the dictionary

Subject: pictures in the dictionary

Dear subscribers, 

I've just begun to work at my dissertation that will be an analysis of the
visualisation of information in (and for) a learner's dictionary - that is
of the pictures that are included in the dictionaries and which help the
reader to understand the meaning of a word - and of the theories that
underlie such practice.
I'd be very grateful for any information (i.e.: bibliographical references
on the subject, current lexicographic or even dydactic projects that are
concerned with this theme etc.).

I thank you all in advance!
With best regards,
Chiara Vettori

Subject: EFL, Japanese speakers, and liquids



Dear Linguists,

 I just read a short article mentioning studies that show that, with
 special training, Japanese speakers can distinguish and produce English 
 [r] & [l] sounds. Has anybody heard of these studies? and what the special 
 training is?

Thanks in advance; I'll post a summary, of course.

James
