Hi!

I'm working on Uighur phonology and am trying to find a good source for
minimal pairs in Uighur. Any ideas? Also, would love to talk with people
about the Uighur language in general. Feel free to e-mail me at

Message 2: MacLaury on Hungarian

Dear Linguists,

In 1997 Rob MacLaury, Judit Almási and Zoltán Kövecses published a paper in
Semiotica on the relationship between the Hungarian words for ''red'':
piros and vöros. One of the Hungarian expressions they list is ''piros mint
as alma'', which is glossed as 'red as an apple'. It is said to refer to a
person's health, but - not being a speaker of Hungarian - I don't know in
what sense. Could someone update me?

Thanks,
