We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Word Association

 I am doing my third year project on word association responses between men
 and women.
 Could anyone please tell me of any articles/journals and books I could use
 for my literature review and to see what any previous studies found.
 Any help would be greatful.
 Thank you

Dear LinguistList colleagues, 

I wonder if anybody knows any publications devoted to the frequency of
occurrence of sounds in Eastern Neo-Aramaic? Must we feed into computer the
conversational texts in the Eastern dialect of Neo-Aramaic in order to
compare the frequency of occurrence of its phonemes to those of Hebrew,
Arabic and other semitic languages. Looking forward to hearing your advice

Yours sincerely, 

Yuri Tambovtsev
