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: journals on Turkish and other Turkic languages



Dear colleagues, 

I've written an article on the phonostatistical distances between
Turkish and other Turkic languages. I compare the sound picture of
Turkish to some 13 Turkic languages (Azeri, Altai, Kazah, Karakalpak,
Kirgiz, Kumandin, Tatar-Kazan, Tatar-Baraba, Turkmen, Uygur, Uzbek,
Hakas and Yakut).

However, because Russia is a poor country with no fascilities for
information, the situation with receiving linguistic information is
really bad for me. I've got no access to web sites and no e-mail
addresses of the linguistics journals in which I might publish my
article. May I ask you all to be so kind as to send me some useful
e-mail addresses of the linguistic journals, especially those
published in Turkey? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely yours,
Yuri Tambovtsev

I am looking for research on the use of women's titles in corpora of
American English. I am especially interested in the frequency of title
use in spoken English. I am not terribly concerned (at this point) with
who, when or why particular titles are used. Any suggestions?

Cheers
