Qs: L2 or L3/Emotions, Aesthetically Pleasing Words

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: Communicating emotions in multiple Ls

Dear multilingual friends and colleagues,

Aneta Pavlenko (Temple University, Philadelphia
and myself, Jean-Marc Dewaele (Birkbeck College, University of London)
have developed a webquestionnaire with 34 questions relating to
bilingualism and emotions, and a second short linked questionnaire on
personality. If you have -at least some - knowledge of an L2, or L3,
L4, L5... would you consider helping us with our research project by
filling out the questionnaires ? The questionnaires are based at the
following address :

Preliminary findings will be presented at the Colloquium "Bilingualism
and Emotions" of which we are conveners (part of the Second University
of Vigo International Symposium on Bilingualism (Wednesday, 23 October
2002 - Saturday, 26 October 2002) and the Panel 'Communicating
emotions in a foreign language' which I am convening at the EUROSLA 12
Conference (University of Basel, Switzerland, 18-21 September 2002).

Thank you !

Dr. Jean-Marc Dewaele

Subject: Aesthetically pleasing words

I am a librarian at a public library and I have a patron who is
looking for a list of words that are asthetically pleasing to the ear.
I have exhausted most avenues and was hoping someone at this site
could give me some suggestions or search terms to use to find such a
thing. If you could recomend a print title or a web site that would
have this information it would help greatly
