Message 1: English Dialect Survey, Online, New

Subject: English Dialect Survey, Online, New

I have just posted my newest English dialect survey. It contains 312
questions illustrated with photos in most cases, and linked to maps of
responses for many of the questions. All of the questions are designed for
linguistic novices, and hence are suitable for intro classes, friends and
family, etc.

The survey is available here:


Thanks for your help.

Subject: To All Mac Users of BLonline

Recently the staff of BLonline had reports from Mac users, that the new
version of BLonline didn't function correctly, neither with Explorer nor
with Safari. This problem has been solved according to the following
message from one of our users:

With MacOS X 10.4.3 (''Tiger, update 3'' of November 2005) and browser
Safari 2.0.2 (build 416.12) the pop-up list works fine, even when pop-up in
the browser is blocked.

Nevertheless, we will continue our efforts to make BLonline function
properly with older versions and with Explorer for Mac, too. If your
browser has any problems with BLonline, please let us know.
