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.

Dear linguists,

I've been examing the efficacy of 'Shadowing' in improving EFL
learners' English listening comprehenshion and speaking skills.

If anyone knows of the latest articles on the topic, I'd greatly
appreciate your help.

Message 2: Quechua/body parts

From: Wiltrud Mihatsch <>
Subject: Quechua/body parts

Dear native speakers of Quechua,

 We are doing research in the domain of body part lexemes in a
large sample of languages and we are currently collecting data in
Quechua dictionaries, both Cuzco Quechua and Highland Quichua
(Chimborazo, Ecuador). (For further information on our project, see Since the
word lists and dictionaries give us quite inconsistent information (in
some cases, none), we urgently need advice from Quechua speakers who
can help us with their knowledge. Could you please give me the most
common unmarked words for "eyebrow", "eyelid", "eyelash", "pupil",
"nostril", "cheek", "jaw" and "temple"?

I look forward to hearing from you,

 Wiltrud Mihatsch

 (I will post a summary)
