Subject: SUM Posting 15.1932

On June 25, I sent a query (Linguist 15.1932) requesting assistance
for a colleague looking for an article on Japanese War Brides from the
70's or 80's. I received the following leads:

topic, and listener. In J.J. Gumperz and D. Hymes (Ed.), The
ethnography of communication, pp. 86-102. American Anthropologist 66:6
Part 2.

It also appeared in Fishman (1968), which was reprinted 1972.

topic and listener. In J. Fishman (ed). Readings in the sociology of
language. The Hague: Mouton, 192-211.
