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.

Subject: Linguistics of Translation

Does anyone know of courses, articles, or books in which translation as a
topic in linguistics is explored? I ask as we are thinking of developing a
course of Translation (Spanish / English) which involves Linguistics in
some fashion. The course would be for undergraduates. I will post responses
on Linguist List, si me llegan, you know.

Message 2: !Xu Sound System

From: Adelaide Silva <adelaidehpsilvauol.com.br>
Subject: !Xu Sound System

Does anybody know about the sound system in !Xu, I mean, how many sounds
are there in that language? I was noticed that this is probably the
language with the biggest sound inventory. Besides, it seems that !Xu has
the biggest phoneme inventory. Is it true? If so, what are the sounds and
the phonemes of !Xu? I would appreciate if someone can tell me something,
or even relate to some references where I can find this response. After
receiving the answers, I summarize them and post it to Linguist, so that
you can also know about !Xu sound system!
