Message 1: FAX numbers of Linguistics Depts wanted for the Linguists Nameserver

Date: Sun, 31 May 92 15:43 MET
From: "Norval Smith <NSMITHalf.let.uva.nl>
Subject: FAX numbers of Linguistics Depts wanted for the Linguists Nameserver

I would like to extend the present list of linguists' (etc.) e-mail addresses
available via the Nameserver at LINGUISTSALF.LET.UVA.NL (send help if you
don't know how to use this yet) with the FAX numbers of Linguistics Depts and
similar institutions (Phonetics Depts etc. welcome too). Please send these
numbers to

linguistsalf.let.uva.nl

in the following form:

add wherever (university) linguistics dept - fax: (intl code) national number

Please replace WHEREVER by the most significant element of your University's
name - i.e. South Carolina linguistics dept, rather than University of South
Carolina linguistics dept. This makes it easier to query the list. A list of
all FAX numbers will be available with:

list fax

News from the LINGUISTS Nameserver

We have just completed a significant revision of the Nameserver entries.
1100 changes were made, resulting in an increase of the list to nearly 6000
lines - about 750 new entries in all.

Most of the members of the LINGUIST list have now been included. Inasmuch as
such a revision will inevitably have introduced errors, although we hope that
the list is now more up to date, we would like to suggest to LINGUIST readers
that they check their entry.
The address you receive LINGUIST at may not be the one you would most want to
advertise, for example. So there may be various cosmetic changes that are
desirable.

If anyone still does not know how to use the Nameserver, then brief instructions
may be found at the end of the regularly posted Linguist-how-to's on this list.
A more extensive HELP message may be received by sending the message HELP to
linguistsalf.let.uva.nl

WARNING. Stylistics experts have found our HELP-message pretty dense stuff.
Reading it all may cause stylitis, the only known cure for which is a cold
hankerchief applied to the brow.
