Subject: Portuguese as a Second Language

Dear Linguists,

I'm presently working on a survey about Portuguese as Foreign/Second
Language in general. I would like to know about research projects,
publications, people working in the field and places where we may find
expertise on the subject.

I will sumarize all the info and post to the list as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Subject: Romance Philology

I will, for the first time, be teaching a course called Romance
Philology in January. It is a required comparative historical
linguistics course for graduate students in French, Spanish, and
Italian, most of whom are doing their degrees in literature and have
as background a course in Phonetics (as much pronunciation as anything
else) and possibly the structure of one of the languages. They will
not have had much Latin if any. I am interested in knowing what others
have used as a text and also will be grateful for suggestions on
approaches, pitfalls, etc.

Merci, grazie, gracias,
Margaret Winters
