Message 1: Academic database & directory

Subject: Academic database & directory

Members of LINGUIST might find of interest. It's a site that 
some colleagues and I have put together that, in essence, is yet another academic 
database, albeit one that can be searched in a wide variety of ways. What makes this 
one different is that it allows the academic community to enter in and edit its 
contents. Thus, researchers can enter in the citation details of their publications 
(and others' publications) and then link these to a public identity that they 
create. They can also link references, faculties, universities and the like, with 
the result being a rich web of academic information.

The site's been up and running in beta version for about a year now, and was 
initially seeded with data from the Library of Congress. If people have any 
questions, they can send them my way.

Best regards,

Michael K. Mauws, Ph.D.

Subject: Seeking generative linguists in Colombia

I would like to contact generative linguists who are native or near-native speakers of 
Spanish and who work or will be working in or around Medellin, Colombia. We are trying 
to set up a training program for teachers of deaf students and we need to be able to 
give them a course in generative grammar as part of the training. If anyone is 
interested in helping us, please contact me, Marianna Pool at, where I 
will be happy to explain what is going on.
