Message 1: Putting People Down

Date: Fri, 19 Jul 91 18:53:56 EDT
From: "Bruce Fraser" <sed91ln%BUACCA.bitnetRICEVM1.RICE.EDU>
Subject: Putting People Down
By way of diversion I have been collecting ways in English of
putting down someone: e.g., not playing with a full deck; has a screw
loose; his/her elevator doesn't go to the top floor. Does anyone have
examples in other languages? If the examples accumulate, I'll share
them with everyone. Thanks.

Does anyone know if there are any programs available for drawing GB type

Subject: request for bibliographic info
Can somebody tell me (1) the name(s) of the editor(s) of the 1984
Proceedings of the Berkeley Linguistics Society (the one with an
article by A.L.Becker in it), and (2) the name(s) of the editor(s)
of the 1973 CLS (9th Regional Meeting), with R. Lakoff's paper on
politeness in it? Also, CLS is published by the Department of
Linguistics, University of Chicago, isn't it?
Thanks!!
