I am trying to get in touch with Prof. Robert Underhill
at San Diego State University. Would any one have an e-mail address
for him?

Thanks a lot in advance.

A student of mine is interested in looking at Cherokee phonology, but
has not had much luck in his library search. Can anyone help us out with
any leads?

Subject: Canada/language/sociolinguistics

Please excuse my sending yet another query about sociolinguistics
teaching materials.

My present question refers to something i remember seeing on the
list a while back, namely the language situation in Canada.

For my Politics of Language course i have already decided to use
James Crawford's new book Hold Your Tongue: Bilingualism and the
politics of "English Only" (1992, Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley)
(even though it's only out in hardback for $24.95).

(I haven't been able yet to get a hold of Crawford's other book:
Language loyalties: A sourcebook on the Official English
controversy, Chicago: University of Chicago, paper $14.95. A
review of both books in The Nation (Nov. 9) recommended both
highly.)

I would also very much like to have a unit on the language
situation in Canada. For this i was thinking of using Ronald
Wardhaugh's book _Language and nationhood: The Canadian
experience_ (1983, Vancouver: New Star Books). However, since i
don't know all that much about the Canadian situation i was
wondering if anybody would care to comment on the following:

1) Are there any other good books on this topic? Articles?

2) Is this book too outdated? Any recommendations on up to date
stuff to be used perhaps with Wardhaugh's book.

3) Is this book to biased? How can i present the issue in a more
controversial way (even though i pretty much agree with
Wardhaugh).

On a related topic:

Does anybody have any feelings on using Wardhaugh's _Languages in
competition_, 1987, Oxford: Basil Blackwell)?

Thanks a lot.
 Jon
