Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton <jessicalinguistlist.org>

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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: French Frequency Counts
Date: 28-Jun-2005

Subject: French Frequency Counts

Dear Linguist List colleagues,

Does anyone happen to know where I might find frequency counts for French
phonemes by position? I'm particularly interested in frequencies of
singleton onsets/codas and word-initial/final clusters. I have been looking
at Wioland (1985), but I'd appreciate additional references.

Thanks in advance,

Message 2: /s/-Weakening in Spanish
Date: 26-Jun-2005
From: Karen Miller <mille735msu.edu>
Subject: /s/-Weakening in Spanish

I am trying to find out whether the following speakers of Spanish aspirate
and/or omit syllable final /s/. Also, if you have any references to
research looking at s-weakening in any of these groups, I'd be interested
in getting them sent to me.

Speakers of Spanish from:

1. Mexian descendents in San Diego, California
2. La Coruna, Spain in Galicia
3. The city of Guzman in the state of Jalisco, Mexico
4. The Canary Islands
5. Madrid, Spain


Linguistic Field(s): Phonology
