Qs: Non-native Speech Data Base, Indoeuropean Fonts

Editor for this issue: Karen Milligan <>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Indoeuropean diacritics

I'm looking for fonts of Indoeuropean languages like
Proto-Indoeuropean, Sanskrit, Greek and Celtic. The fonts have to be
compatible with MacOS 9. Could anyone recommend me a homepage where
it is possible to download or purchase a font or a fontmaker?
