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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: Query: onsetless syllables

Dear Linguists,

I would like to collect information on the cross-linguistic
distribution and behaviour of vowel-initial syllables. For example, is
there any implicational relationship between the occurrence of
word-initial and word-medial ones, e.g., do you always have hiatuses
in languages with vowel-initial words? Or, do you know of any cases
where vowel-initial words behave in a special way?

Many thanks,
Katalin Balogne Berces

I'm looking for suggestions of CDs (audio practice, exercises, etc.)
that I might buy to supplement the text for Intro to Linguistics
course this fall.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff Ruth
