Message 1: Linguistic studies of euphemism?

Subject: Linguistic studies of euphemism?

A colleague in another department recently asked me about work by
linguists on the nature of euphemism. The only piece he (or I) could
find off-hand was Benveniste's "La blashe'mie et l'euphe'mie"
(reprinted in Proble`mes de linguistique ge'ne'rale II:254-7), but (a)
this isn't very much, and (b) neither of us has much of a sense of
where else to look. The readership of this list seems a pretty diverse
lot, and I'm sure some of you can give him useful references.

If I get responses that might be of general interest, I'll post a
summary to Linguist.

Thanks in advance,

Message 2: Printable IPA in Nota Bene

Subject: Printable IPA in Nota Bene

I don't know if this is a permissible message, since it has commercial
repercussions, but it could be important to some LINGUIST subscribers.

Nota Bene Informatics/The Technology Group of Baltimore now supply
very nice IPA screen fonts with Nota Bene 4.0, but they're not yet
available for printing. The reason for long delay in implementation
is that they get (got) so few requests for IPA that they figure(d) it
wouldn't be much of an attraction. It appears, however, that if NBI/TG
have reason to believe that there is a demand for IPA in Nota Bene,
they would consider moving it up on the priority list.

Query, then: How many out there in LINGUIST-land use Nota Bene and
would like to have printable IPA with it (in addition to the present
Greek, Hebrew, Cyrillic, etc.). If you respond to me personally, I'll
post the results here, and if they're numerous enough to be useful,
I'll report to NBI/TG.

Subject: Acquiring Collections of Journals

 Last year I received (and misplaced) a notice from a company that
buys and sells old issues, volumes and collections of academic journals.
If you have the name and address or phone number of such a company,
please send it to me. Thanks.

Another Book search: I would like to buy the following book: Agreement in
Contemporary Standard Russian by Dina B. Crockett, 1976, Slavica
publishers. According to the Slavica catalogue it is sold out (but maybe
I'm mistaken). Anyway, if there is somebody wanting to get rid of their
copy, you're welcome.
