Message 1: Gender Studies, Native American

Subject: Gender Studies, Native American

I am looking for research done on the interactional styles of minority
women, especially Native American women. I know of Bea Medicine's work with
the Lakota, but I can't find other studies. If you know of someone who has
done work in this area of "gender and language", I would appreciate a
response.

Message 2: SURVEY OF STANDARD SPEAKERS IN BLACK AMERICA

Date: Fri, 23 Mar 2001 18:53:39 -0500
From: Robert Trammell <trammellfau.edu>
Subject: SURVEY OF STANDARD SPEAKERS IN BLACK AMERICA

Dear Colleagues:

At long last our web site for the Survey on Learning Standard English as D1
or D2 in Black American Communities is up and ready. 

http://www.linguistics.fau.edu/trammell/

We would appreciate it if you could look it over, try it out, take it--if
that is appropriate, and advertise it to potential surveyees. 

If you think of any particular lists or organizations which Standard
English speaking African Americans or others of African descent might
belong to, please advise us. Comments, questions, suggestions, and
criticisms are solicited. 

Unfortunately, due to the deaths of the mother of my co-author and one of
our Web specialists, the site has been delayed until I have only two weeks
before I must speak on the preliminary results of the survey at a
conference on April 6. 

So early results would be especially appreciated. We hope to give a fuller
report in at another conference in October.

Thank you for your help.
