Message 1: Kikongo

From: Ingo Plag <PLAG%DMRHRZ11.BITNETCUNYVM.CUNY.EDU>
Subject: Kikongo
I am looking for somebody with good knowledge of Kikongo. I am especially
interested in all kinds of syntactic constructions involving the verb
SAY as (would-be?) complementizer.

Thanks in advance, Ingo Plag

Subject: A call for assistance
 A colleague of mine is looking for information on a PC package called,
"Multilingual Scholar". It apparantly is a user-definable keyboard re-mapper.
He would like to find out, who sells it, how much it costs, and what exactly
it does.

Please send replies to: Jon Radue

THanks!

Subject: Dictionaries
Colleagues in Zagreb are seeking recent literature about theoretical and
practical lexicography and dictionary-making. They can use materials written
in Slavic, Romance, and Germanic languages. If unpublished items are
available, how does one get them? I will pass on replies sent to the list
or directly to jn5jcornella.bitnet or jn5jcornella.cit.cornell.edu
Thank you--Wayles Browne, Cornell U.

Message 4: Structure of French

Date: Tue, 19 Mar 91 17:04:30 CST
From: <GA3704%SIUCVMB.BITNETCUNYVM.CUNY.EDU>
Subject: Structure of French
I'd appreciate any suggestions for a textbook for an advanced
undergraduate/MA-level course in the structure of French (phonology,
morphology, syntax) which I teach to students of French with
little linguistic background beyond French phonetics. I've
used various texts over the years and don't terribly like any
of them. What is anyone else using?

Thanks for suggestions.

Message 5: Maltese

From: <GA3704%SIUCVMB.BITNETCUNYVM.CUNY.EDU>
Subject: Maltese
Is there anything like "Maltese Made Easy"? or other relatively
accessible teaching grammar of Maltese around in English? A
friend of mine will be there on a Fulbright next year and is
trying to get ready.

Thanks for any suggestions/information...

Message 8: "mother of all battles"

Date: Tue, 19 Mar 1991 12:42 MST
From: <MAWAD%CLIPRVAXF.Colorado.EDU>
Subject: "mother of all battles"
As an Arab and a Linguist, I too agree with Alexis-Manaster-Ramer about his
agreement with Robert Hoberman that in its given context, "mother of all
battles" meant "the greatest or most important battle." I cannot read much
more than that. --Maher.
