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.

For an effort to tag styles of discourse in broadcast communication (e.g.,
news reports, talk radio, podcasts), can anyone point me to a list of
descriptive terminology (e.g., ''discursive'', ''argumentative'',
''halting'', ''chatty'', ''interrupting'', etc.) or any other

Perhaps my question is a bit specialized, but I didn't know where else to
ask it; if there happens to be an Assyriologist around here, perhaps he/she
can answer it.
Just how established is nowadays the theory that some or all of the
so-called fricatives in Akkadian and Sumerian (above all ''sh'' with hacek
:)) were in fact affricates? I'd like to know to what extent it is accepted
in the Assyriological community.
