Subject: english vowels and alcohol

I am an Italian student, graduating at Universita di Genova. My final 
dissertation will be a study of frequency alteration caused by alcohhol 
assumption, as long english vowels are concerned. Unfortunately there 
seem to be very little written on the subject. I hope someone can help 
me, suggesting any reading or site. 

Thank you in advance,

Message 2: Garo Language Expert

Subject: Garo Language Expert

I need to come into contact with someone who has (preferably) first
hand knowledge of the Garo language (Sino-Tibetan, Tibeto-Burman,
Baric) spoken in the state of Assam, India. I have read the existing
grammar and am aware of the existence of a few dictionaries; I need to
clarify some issues that seem be more a matter of grammar rather than
lexicon so any pointers to people or institutions where I could find
someone competent in Garo will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance!

All the best,
