Message 1: Productivity of British exocentric compounds?

Subject: Productivity of British exocentric compounds?

Hi all,

I'm trying to track down a reference for the idea that exocentric
verbal compounds (like push-chair and answerphone) are somewhat
productive in British English and not productive at all in North
American English.

I realize that it may or may not be true that exocentric compounds are
more productive in British English than elsewhere. I am nevertheless
interested in tracking down a reference for the point. I'm sure I read
it somewhere!

Thanks in advance for any help.

Subject: Query: IPA font for Palm

Does anyone know of an IPA font for the Palm operating system (i.e. a
.pdb file)? I'd like to be able to use my PDA for phonetic
transcription. I've tried creating such a font using FontHack, but
without success.
