 News from the International Philosophical Preprint Exchange
 =========================================================== 30 Nov 93

 Usership and submissions
 ------------------------ In recent weeks, usage of the IPPE has remained
steady at about 4500 accesses per month. However, probably due to the
approaching end of the semester in many parts of the world, the rate of
new submissions has temporarily dipped. Approximately 20 new papers are
at some stage or other of the submission process, and we hope to be able
to announce several batches of newly available papers within the next
few weeks.

 Books, journals, and conferences
 -------------------------------- Other new developments are also in the
works. We shall soon be opening a new directory (and Gopher menu) for
journals, book series, and conferences, within which we will be making
available abstracts, tables of contents, and in some cases introductory
essays of forthcoming issues of journals, forthcoming volumes in book
series, and papers to be presented at conferences. Thus far, we have
firm arrangements with two journals and with one book series. We would
be glad to hear from others who might be interested in a similar

 North American mirror site
 -------------------------- Courtesy of Professor Michael Hart of Project
Gutenberg, a mirror image of the IPPE archive will shortly be available
for ftp users at a North American mirror site, (the
main site in Japan,, will of course also
remain available to users worldwide). North American users, as well as
certain others, may prefer to ftp to the North American site. On, the IPPE archive can be found in the directory

Please note that cannot accept IPPE submissions;
for submission information, see below.

 Other mirror sites
 ------------------ Other sites interested in keeping an automated mirror
image of the IPPE archive are desired, especially in parts of the world
which do not yet have a nearby IPPE mirror. We would especially like to
have additional mirror sites in Europe and Australasia. To mirror the
IPPE, you need to be able to commit a considerable amount of disk space
(no less than 100 MB, although only half that will be needed
immediately), to be willing to install and run the Washington University
ftp server (wuftpd), and to be willing to transmit the relevant potions
of the ftp server's log files to the Chiba site periodically (we have
automated software that will accomplish this). All interested parties
are invited to contact us at the address
<> to discuss matters.

 Placing your own working papers on the IPPE
 ------------------------------------------- The IPPE welcomes working
papers in all areas of philosophy. Authors who place their papers on
the IPPE benefit from the comments and criticisms of philosophers
worldwide: on average, a paper placed on the IPPE is read twice a day,
in the first month alone. Authors retain copyright, and papers remain
fully publishable. If you wish to place a paper on the IPPE, please
contact Carolyn Burke (, who will be pleased to
guide you throught the processs of submitting your paper by email, ona
diskette, or by ftp. (Expert ftp users may wish to simply connect to, read the file pub/submissions/README,
and upload their papers using the procedure described therein.)

Message 3: IPA fonts clarifications

Date: 18 Dec 93 12:54 GMT
From: Ecological Linguistics,Anderson,PRT <>
Subject: IPA fonts clarifications

IPA Fonts Clarifications:

In response to inquiries:

1. The catalog from Ecological Linguistics is free to any part of the world.
 It goes by snail mail, *not Fax*. Thanks for your understanding,
 but samples of quality typefaces do not survive Fax.
2. It contains a listing of a commercial serif-style IPA with bold,
 italic, and bold-italic which is very close to what will be in the
 plainstyle fonts we will be supplying free (courtesy of Charles
 Bigelow), but does not actually illustrate the Lucida becuase of our
 care to abide by Mr. Bigelow's wishes about not mixing or bundling.
 The fonts, although called IPA, are actually more inclusive, IPA
 and also Americanist phonetic symbols, etc.
3. The LucidaSansIPA will be ready for shipment about New Year's.
 In response to my suggestions, Mr. Bigelow is kindly supplying a few
 extra forms which experience shows some folks wish to have readily
 available. Please pardon if snail mails delay this date slightly.
4. Mr. Bigelow has given his permission to charge $5 postage/handling,
 agreeing that of course this is no commercial gain. This will
 be the same whether sending to the USA or to other countries.
5. Other free fonts covered by the *same* $5 postage/handling charge
 if you request them at the same time are Cree and Cherokee,
 courtesy of Paul Kershaw and J. LoCicero, respectively.
6. For Windows computers we supply only TrueType, not Postscript, and
 only on 3.5" disks (unless you send your own 5.25" disk).

Hope these clarifications are helpful.
Sincerely, Lloyd Anderson, Ecological Linguistics

Message 4: Phonetic fonts - more

Date: Mon, 20 Dec 1993 21:21:45 Phonetic fonts - more
From: Karl Krahnke <krahnkelamar.ColoState.EDU>
Subject: Phonetic fonts - more

Like Vicki Fromkin, I thought I would post generally regarding
phonetic fonts. When I moved to Windows, I got Adobe's phonetic
fonts, Stone Serif and Stone Sans Serif IPA. They are excellent
and work well with Word for Windows. I have not tried them with
other word processors but they should be OK. Only problem is
that diacritics cannot be combined with primary symbols with
Word. I think Wordperfect can do it (kerning is needed). You do
need Adobe Type Manager also, but that can be picked up cheaply.
These fonts have worked so well for me that I have not tried
others and would be interested to know if others are better in
some way. I do not have the ordering information with me just
now but would be happy to provide it to anyone interested.
