Subject: teaching phonetics within the general linguistics class


Any information on teaching phonetic transcription in a graduate
introductory linguistics class would be appreciated. Specifically, how
much leeway should there be in the transcriptions students do? I will
post a summary if the discussion warrants.

Subject: References & Training

Dear LINGUIST,

I am a Ph.D. student in my first year of writing on "Readers' Response
to Translations of Iraqi Poetry: Badr Shakir As-Sayyab as a Case
Study". As you are well-aware of the present situation of the Iraqi
libraries, I am appealing to you to help with references on the
subject, consultation with your esteemed professors, and if possible
any training courses in Translation & Linguistics.

Appreciating your assistance in advance

Yours,

Kadhim Al-Ali
