Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton
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.
Fula 'Glottalized' Consonants
Message 1: Relative Clauses
From: Preeti Agarwal <preetiresearch.iiit.ac.in>
Subject: Relative Clauses
I'm interested in studying the structure of relative clauses which are in fact
part of a maximal NP. For my work I would like to focus on Indian language
Hindi. Can anyone suggest me any relevant reading or work done for such
constructions? Your suggestions are welcome.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Message 2: Fula 'Glottalized' Consonants
From: Rolf Theil <rolf.theililn.uio.no>
Subject: Fula 'Glottalized' Consonants
I am working with the history of the phonology and morphology of the Atlantic
language Fula, spoken across West Africa. One central problem is the changes /
alternations that the "glottalized" consonants can be involved in. The
"glottalized" consonants, 'b 'd 'j, are pronounced as either implosives or
creaky voiced stops ('j has changed into a creaky voiced semivowel, 'y, in
eastern dialects). I would be grateful for information about languages where
these consonants change into / alternate with nasals in a non-nasal environment.
