Message 1: native language names

Subject: native language names

Good morning!

Does anyone know of an on-line resource where I can find a list of
spoken language names, listed in their native languages? For example,
espa�ol, fran�ais, Deutsch, etc. Of course, the English
name as reference would be helpful too. I'm looking for
about 40 different language names. Ideally, I need an official list
that I don't need to have double-checked, and this includes
the listing of the name with language-appropriate capitalization.

Thank you so much for your help.

Subject: the effect of media on American English

Hello, I am writing a paper on mass media's impact on the English
language, specifically modern American English. I'm having a bit of
difficulty finding sources. Can any linguists out there point me in a
good direction? Thanks.
