Subject: re: name orthotactics


Anyone out here know of accurate sources (articles, books, even lists) on the
orthotactics of names? I'm interested in languages other than Germanic,
Sanskrit-based, French and Spanish.

Phonotactic information might be useful if some sort of transform exists (for
example, in Indonesian but NOT in English). In that case, a note or reference
on that transform would help as well.

Even lists of the most common names or name-parts would be useful. References
or succinct descriptions would be wonderful. Don't post it - Please email me
at amy.uhrbach.office.wang.com. If anyone else is interested, I'll forward or
post a summary. Thanks!

Subject: need info on KWIC-Magic and Syntax Workbench

I am trying to find information on two pieces of computer software.

First, does anyone know if the concordance program KWIC-Magic is still
available, and if so, where. (The phone number for the company is not in
service, and my attempts to contact the developer by e-mail have failed.)

Second, does anyone know about or have experience with something called Syntax
Workbench published by the CSLI at Stanford Univ.?

Please reply directly to me.

Message 3: Pedagogical materials for Quechua

Subject: Pedagogical materials for Quechua

 As Harry Howard and Tom Klinger have already mentioned in previous
queries, Tulane University is setting up a pilot project to offer five
Less Commonly Taught Languages. Now I guess it's my turn to jump
on the bandwagon. I have been asked to research the pedagogical
materials available for K'iche' (Quiche) and Quechua (any variety).
I am familiar with the materials available for K'iche' (i.e., Wick
and Cochojil Gonzalez, Mondloch) but would be very grateful
for information about additional resources. What I mainly need,
however, is information about resources available for Quechua.
Specifically, I would appreciate (1) suggestions on materials for
classroom and/or informant-assisted instruction, and (2) suggestions on
assessment which would satisfy customary accreditation standards, e.g.
is there anyone out there who could test our students in these
languages? Please reply to me personally. Thank you very much.
