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.

Subject: Coosan Linguistics

I am interested in the Coosan languages (Hanis and Miluk), once spoken
 around Coos Bay in Oregon. I am looking for the following:
 (a) materials (published or otherwise) on these languages,
 (b) names of linguists who have published research on these languages.
 If anyone out there can help me find materials or other researchers, I
 would appreciate it.

Dear fellow linguists,

I recently posted a message concerning theses which deal with OT approaches
to L2 syntax. I would also be interested in details of any other resources
in this area, particularly journal articles and book chapters published
since around 2000. A summary bibliography will of course follow. 

Thanks in anticipation,
