Subject: topic-comment and their relationship to prosody in Portuguese.

Dear all,

I am a grad student in NY state trying hard to find information for an
upcoming paper in an Intonational phonology (prosody) Course offered
in French [to date I have studied Ladd (1999) and Rossi (1978-1999)].
Since Portuguese is my first language, the prof suggested I look at
"th�me-propos" ("topic-comment") in Portuguese and what effect prosody
had on that structure.

The LLBA and MLA research I have done has led me to many articles on
Mandarin and Arabic but nothing specific to Portuguese. The relevant
citations I have found are in articles/journals I cannot
access...alas! (Estudos Linguisticos 1999, etc.)

I was, therefore, wondering if anyone out there could help shed some
light on this matter for me. I would greatly appreciate any help I
can get. 

Cheers, 
Greg

Subject: error analysis (phonology)

I'm an italian student of English at the "Universitaet Bielefeld"
(Germany). I am writing a paper about error analysis (with regard to
phonology) related to adult students of English. I already collected
some material about this issue, but need your help in finding 
a specific bibliography (or web-sites) about adult (exclusively) L2
acquisition, especially about the treatment of phonologic errors that
adult may make when pronouncing English words.

Thanks in advance.

best regards
Antonio Sposato
