Subject: Phonetic Symbols
I would be eternally grateful for the set of phonetic symbols. I have the
printer but unfortunately use Wordstar 5.5 or 6. Any possibility of
conversion? What can I do? Vicki Fromkin

Message 2: Phonetic symbols on laser printers

Subject: Phonetic symbols on laser printers
Thanks to all who have sent suggestions concerning the phonetic symbol
font that we are distributing. To clarify a few points:

- The font will be for the HP Laserjet and will be usable, in principle,
 with any word processor (provided you know how to download and select
 fonts).

- We will do the installation for Word Perfect 5.1 to make its use
 fairly painless.

- We are developing this font for our own use and will distribute it
 free. We will *not* do adaptations for other printers or other word
 processors, but others are welcome to do so and distribute the results.

- Many Word Perfect 5.1 users are unaware that a huge character set
 is already available to them, ON ANY PRINTER, REGARDLESS OF FONTS
 INSTALLED, because the characters that do not exist in fonts are
 automatically printed in graphics mode. Print the file CHARACTR.DOC
 that comes with Word Perfect 5.1, and you'll see a wealth of
 special symbols, including Greek, Hebrew, Cyrillic, and Katakana.

Message 3: brain visuals query

Date: Thu, 28 Feb 91 10:19:38 PST
From: Lynn Gale <lynncasbs.Stanford.EDU>
Subject: brain visuals query
My sister teaches anatomy at a small college in Missouri. She'd like
to get some teaching aids (video, overhead, 3D models, slides, Mac
graphics, whatever) for showing locations in the brain that are
important to linguistic functions (e.g., vocalization, speech,
language recognition). Do you have any sources, or know who to ask,
or even what other bboard to post a query to?

Thanks much.
