Subject: Richard Montague

Can anyone tell me the correct year of birth of Richard
Montague? Available sources are contradictory - 1930 or
1931. Information urgently needed for the Swedish National
Encyclopedia.

Message 2: Phonological variation in Non-Indo-European

Date: Wed, 1 Dec 93 18:43:32 METPhonological variation in Non-Indo-European
From: Daan de Jong <daanlet.vu.nl>
Subject: Phonological variation in Non-Indo-European

I am looking for data on phonological / morphophonological
variation in non-indo-european languages for a paper I am
currently preparing. What especially interests me are processes
like schwa-epenthesis, consonant-cluster reduction / deletion and
final-consonant deletion.

Could anyone recommend me papers/books on that topic? I am
working within a generative / sociolinguistic framework, but any
kind of data is welcome (descriptive, theoretical). If you have
any information you can send it to my E-mail adress below, and
I'll post a summary to the List. Thanks in advance,

Message 3: ASL

Date: Wed, 01 Dec 1993 12:39:28 ASL
From: Nancy J Stenson-1 <stensonMAROON.TC.UMN.EDU>
Subject: ASL

I have a student, not on the net, who would like to find out if there has been
any work done comparing the later language development and general educational
success of deaf children exposed in infancy to ASL with that of children
exposed to signed English. Actually, she'd probably be interested in
anything at all on early ASL exposure, but is particularly interested in
the ASL-Signed English distinction. Her name is Jolene Cassidy, and answers
can be sent to her directly at CASS0013gold.tc.umn.edu. Thanks.

Message 4: citation of foreign-language data

Date: Wed, 01 Dec 93 20:09:51 EScitation of foreign-language data
From: Adriane Moser <AMOSERCCVM.sunysb.edu>
Subject: citation of foreign-language data

I am an undergraduate student preparing a paper to be submitted only to my prof
essor (not to be reproduced in a journal, etc.) My question is: when citing dat
a from languages with non-roman alphabets, how do I represent them? In their al
phabet, which is available to me? In IPA? In some sort of other romanization sy
stem, like Romanji? What about near-Roman alphabets? (I'm not sure of the corre
ct terminology, what I mean is languages like Russian and Vietnamese.)

Please post to me directly, I don't want to bother the list with this informati
on.

Thank you for your time,
Adriane Moser
