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.
Date: 26-Aug-2005 From: Alice Horning <horningoakland.edu> Subject: The Adventure of English Source
Does anyone know the real source for the recent British series The Adventure of English? It is being marketed for over $900, and I would rather not ask my state university to pay that price for 8 DVDs. The same company is also asking about $400 for Do You Speak American? which aired on public tv in the US and is available on DVD on the PBS website for $60. If you have information, please send it to me directly: horningoakland.edu.
If there is interest, I will post the information to the list.
