Subject: e-addresses sought, Swedish linguists

I am seeking the e-mail addresses of two Swedish linguists. They are:
Britt-Louise Gunnarsson, FUMS, Uppsala University, and Per Linell, Dept. of
Communication Studies, U. of Linkoping. Any leads on how to locate them will
be most appreciated. (They are the organizers of the August 1992 conference
on Discourse and the Professions). Thanks! Brenda Danet.

Message 2: Honkie

Subject: Honkie

 Well, this one is about "honkie" that Bruce mentioned (from a Czech friend).
 I have never come across a Slavic word "hunk", whatever it may mean (what does
 it?; surely not reletaed to "hunk" - that's Austrian for one of the Kennedy
clan).
 I always thought that "honkie" was a generalization of Hungarian (as a
Central European prototype) originating in Chicago and suburbs where most of
the WASPs could not tell the difference anyway. Am I wrong? H.K.

Is "e-" to be a general prefix now?
