Subject: linguistic analysis programs for MacIntosh

Dear readers, 

could anyone recomend me a program for phonetic analysis compatible
with the MacIntosh which can handle 3 variables at a time (as opposed
to GoldVarb which can handle only 2? I.e., a program similar to
GoldVarb with the difference of the number of possible settings for
the dependent variable?) Please respond directly to me and I'll post a
summary or any results. (Help would be most appreciated!) 

Enjoy the summer/season, Angela Bartens

Subject: French Liaison acquisition

Dear Listers,

I wonder if anyone can help me help a student. I would be interested
to find any references to research on the L2 acquisition of French
Liaison, especially by native speakers of English. I will post a
summary. Thanks Martin Paviour-Smith
