Subject: Ethics Around Internet Data

Dear all,

I am doing a PhD at the University of Manchester (UK) and I was wondering
if anyone knows anything about the ethics on collecting data from the
Internet (privacy and confidentiality issues).

I investigate the use of Cypriot Greek in Computer-mediated Communication
and my data will consist of people's online interactions on the MSN
Messenger and MIRC channels.

Any ideas of what i sould bear in mind?
Many thanks,
Christiana Themistocleous

Subject: Phonology of Ossetic

I was wondering if anyone knew about the phonology of Ossetic, namely, is
it possible to have aspirated voiceless stops in the middle of a word?

It was just a question that came up in my Phonology class, and the
professor wasn't sure.
