Subject: French dictionaries

I'm currently researching into the Guy Miege's _Great French Dictionary_
(late seventeenth-century) from the English rather than the French end,
and would be most grateful if anyone more knowledgeable on the subject of
French lexicography could give me references for any standard French
dictionaries at the time (and especially any French-English dictionaries
published in France that may not be in the British Library). I would also
be interested to know of any secondary works I should look into.
		Thank you

Subject: Rohingyas

Is there anyone out there who knows which language the Rohingyas speak?
I am referring to the Burmese Muslims in the Arakan province of Burma
(Myanmar) who have recently been in the news because large numbers of them
are fleeing to Bangladesh. The news magazines say that they are descendants
of Arab traders and Muslim soldiers, but I have never found a reference
to their language.

My 15 year old son would like to spend July 1992 (four weks) in a
family in the US with a boy of about same age, who would like to
come to Heidelberg, Germany, in exchange. If you know someone interested
