Qs: Orthography Research Questionnaire
Editor for this issue: James Rider
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.

Orthography Research Questionnaire
Message 1: Orthography Research Questionnaire
From: Christopher Moseley <chrismoseley50yahoo.com>
Subject: Orthography Research Questionnaire
I am currently embarking on a Ph.D. thesis in linguistics at University
College, London. My subject is ''Alphabet Adaptation'' - the adaptation of
the Roman and Cyrillic alphabets to established written languages in the
past, and the creation of orthographies for previously unwritten languages
in the present. I'm keen to make contact with field-workers and linguists
who have experience of, or are currently working on, devising such
orthographies (even if they are not Roman-based). I have devised a detailed
questionnaire on the problems and considerations involved in orthography
creation, and I would like to send it to any linguist who would like to
participate. All responses will be gratefully acknowledged, of course.
