Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.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.

To all it may concern

A few years ago I posted a query here about pulmonic ingressive phonation,
and have since then worked on a major review paper on the phenomenon, which
is now under revision for journal publication. A couple of spin-off papers
have seen the light, see: http://ingressivespeech.info

My question:

The Wikipedia entry on ''pulmonic ingressive'' includes a mention that the
words ''yes'' and ''no'' (in Mongolian, of course) are often produced
ingressively in Khalkha Mongolian
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulmonic_ingressive).

I have tried to contact the person who submitted that snippet of
information, but have so far not succeeded. I would like to know whether
there is anyone else who could confirm this.

Help is much appreciated, and a space in the Acknowledgement section is
reserved.

Thanks!

Robert

As part of a project with Craige Roberts and Mandy Simons, I'm looking for
references to cross-linguistic work on presupposition, especially work that
lays out the different types of presupposition trigger in languages other
than English. I'm aware of work by e.g. Matthewson, Levinson & Annamalai,
Schwarz, Zeevat, but really there does not seem to be a lot of such work
about.

Any references will be greatfully received, summarized in a future posting,
and added to my public bibliography on presupposition on the OSU Pragmatics
Intiative site < http://pragmatics.osu.edu/ > (the bibliography itself is
at < http://www.ling.ohio-state.edu/~stoia/BeaverBibYab.html >).

Cheers,

David
