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.

We purchased the GlobalPhone database for our research. We are completely
stumped on how to access the files and there doesn’t seem to be any type of
step by step instruction. Can anyone shed light on this if you have used
these databases and the software that comes with it? It seems like it
would a simple process but we cannot figure out how to even get started.
Thanks in advance for any leads on this. We have searched online to no avail.

Thank you,

Can anybody help me locate a Swadesh 200 list for Ancient Hebrew and Koine
Greek? Google, Wikipedia and the Rosetta Project all draw a blank.

Thanks in advance.
