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.

Message 1: English Dictionaries with Local Pronunciation

Subject: English Dictionaries with Local Pronunciation

I'm looking for a good dictionary for New Zealand and South African English
which features accurate and reliable phonEMic transcriptions for the local (i.e.
NZE and SAE) pronunciations. Could someone suggest any? Are there any such
dictionaries for Ireland (Eire) and India?

I'm looking into possible differences in the distribution of phonemes between
different accents (as happens between British English and American English for
words such as ''shone'', ''either'', ''song'', ''lost'', ''last'', ''Mary'',
''hurry'') or as regards stress, etc, etc.

While for Canadian and Australian English I already have some satisfactory
dictionaries, I can't say the same for those for New Zealand or South African

Good afternoon I am Claudia Ciullo an italian student. I've been attending the
faculty of language in Rome. I've been preparing my thesis concerning slips of
the tongue. Can you suggest me some corpora where I can individualize lapses. My
thesis is based on empiric data.

Grazie for your collaboration
