Subject: Sentani

Can anyone help us with information on the Sentani language (spoken in
Irian Jaya, New Guinea)? We would be most interested in references on
Sentani phonology, especially prosody. However any information on grammars,
dictionaries, word lists, and other material (taped, transcribed, etc.)
would be welcome. References on Sentani collected so far include:

Cowan, H.J.K. (1965). A Grammar of the Sentani Language. The Hague:
	Martinus Nijhoff
Papers by H.J.K. Cowan in Oceania 21-22 (1951-1952) and Bijdragen tot de
	Taal- Land- en Volkenkunde 108:347-364 (1952).
Hartzler, Dwight (1976). "A study of Sentani verb structure", Irian 5.2,
	18-38.
Hartzler, Margaret (1976), "Central Sentani phonology", Irian 5.1, 66-81.

Can anyone point me to work on the acquisition of crossed and nested
dependencies? I will summarize results to the list.
