Message 1: ET Electronic - new English Today electronic discussion group

Subject: ET Electronic - new English Today electronic discussion group

English Today: The International Review of the English Language has just
launched a new, moderated electronic discussion group. The discussion has
been kicked off by a thoughful piece from Tom McArthur on English and 'the
war on terror'.

'The explosions of the 11th September in Manhattan continue to reverberate,
and English is reverberating with them. To date, three broad language issues
appear to have emerged in response to unprecedented disruption and
destruction: first, the implications for the English of politics, religion,
economics, war, peace, technology, and terrorism itself; second, the
actions, style, and usage of the American president and government; third,
the nature and perception of Islam in the West and of Muslim ('Islamic')
terms as used in English.'

If you would like to participate in this discussion, or initiate others on
any aspect of the English language, join in at

New MA program in ADULT LANGUAGE LEARNING

The new Master of Arts degree program in Adult Language Learning 
(MAALL) at Michigan State University is specifically designed for 
students who seek a career in the foreign language learning and 
teaching of adults. Unique nationally in its focus on adult language 
learning, the program is suitable particularly for students who 
prefer more professional and practical content and less linguistics 
or literature and language content. Students enrolled in this program 
will prepare to contribute and adapt to rapidly maturing 
possibilities in computer-assisted instruction and internet-based 
distance instruction.

Requirements include courses in second language learning and 
teaching, linguistics, and the structure of the language of 
specialization. Students may choose to write a thesis or take an 
examination.

Message 3: Update on Celtling Listserv

From: Elizabeth J. Pyatt <ejp10psu.edu>
Subject: Update on Celtling Listserv

Dear Linguists:

For those of you subscribed to the Celtling Listserv or interested in 
Celtling, some changes have happened in the past few weeks.

(1) The List itself has moved from its former home at MIT and is now 
administered through Linguistlist.org. As a result the following 
e-mail and web address have changed:

Post a Message: celtlinglists.psu.edu
Archives: http://listserv.linguistlist.org/archives/celtling.html
Subscribe/Unsubscribe - Go to Archives, then click "Join or leave" link

(2) Also a new web site has been posted at 
http://www.personal.psu.edu/ejp10/celtling which includes 
information about Celtling and some links to additional resources.

Celtling is a Listserv dedicated to the linguistic structure of the 
Celtic languages including syntax, phonology, morphology, 
acquisition, semantics, historical linguistics and other related 
issues. Membership is open to linguists and other people sharing 
those interests.

Thank you
