Not for the first time, I urgently need to get in touch
with Sergei Starostin, and since all attempts to reach
him directly or via others in Moscow have failed, I am
hoping that someone on LINGUIST knows where he might be
and how to find him.

Likewise, I have been able to reach Bernard Comrie at
his usual email address at USC for some time, and I am
wondering if anyone knows where he is.

Message 2: homographic heterophones

Subject: homographic heterophones

 I showed the recent post looking for a term for words like
polish/Polish to a friend of mine who does not subscribe to the
list. She is always interested in finding more English homographic
heterophones such as _tear_ - a rip and _tear_ - what rolls out of
the eye when you cry, and therefore asked me to post this request.
 If you know of any such English pairs which have a syntactic
category in common (e.g. both _tear_'s can be nouns) would you please
send them to Jill Reppert at repperthsscls.hssc.scarolina.edu
If people are interested, she will post a summary to the list.

From: "Ray Siemens" <siemensunixg.ubc.ca>
Subject: Program Information Requested: AMPLE & STAMP

I am hoping to find out more about two programs whose names I came across in
a book on PC-Kimmo. They are AMPLE and STAMP.

Specifically, I am interested in where the programs might be obtained (ftp
site, etc...), how I could get into contact with their authors, and any
comments that users of the programs would wish to share.

Please feel free to contact me at my address, below.

Thanks,

Message 4: Anthro lx course on computer

From: <CURIONUALTAVM.bitnet>
Subject: Anthro lx course on computer


Does anyone know of efforts to create a computer-mediated course in
anthro-linguistics? I'd like to hear from anyone who has worked on development
of such a course or anyone who has even thought about it. I'm planning to
create one over the next 3 years, hoping to take advantage of the visual and
audio examples CAI based courses allow.

The course I'm planning is a broad survey of the development of lx within
anthropology, especially as models of language organization have had an affect
on cultural anthro and archaeology. Another aspect of the survey is the range
of concerns anthropologists bring to language studies. The course is ambitious
in scope but I have taught a course like this at the intermediate/senior
u/graduate level quite successfully, even though there is no good textbook.

One third of the course deals with the history of the development of concepts
from the late 1800s onwards; one third deals with archaeology, human
paleontology, and language pre-history; and one third deals with field-based
studies of systems of language use (e.g., conversation analysis, ethnog of
communication).

I'd really appreciate the chance to share the more detailed plans I have for
this course with others who might be interested, to get critical comments and
advice. Please correspond with me directly: CURIONVM.UCS.UALBERTA.CA
