 Can anyone tell me how Korean and Chinese are classified relative to being
 right- or left-branching? I am also wanting to know if Korean is classified
 as a syllable-timed language, in general (understanding that controversy
 surrounds the teminology). I would very much appreciate hearing from anyone
 who knows or can shed light on the query. Thanks. Peggy Anderson. WSU.

Message 2: Query: generic pronouns

From: Johanna Rubba <rubbabend.UCSD.EDU>
Subject: Query: generic pronouns


I teach an intro ling & lang course at UC Riverside in which
I include a short component on language and sexism, esp. pronoun
usage. I'm looking for some recent research (if there is any) on
the appropriateness of 'he' as a generic pronoun. I currently have
the students read two old psycholinguistic studies, one by D. McKay
and one by Moulton, Robinson & Elias, but these are quite old and I
would like something more recent.

Other research on the topic (sexism in language), which would be
accessible to non-linguist undergrads in such a course, would also
be useful.

If anyone has a lead, could they please write to me directly?
--Thanks!!

Subject: ARABIC BROKEN PLURALS

i'M LOOKING FOR ANY REFERENCES ON BROKEN PLURALS IN Arabic . I have the
 Mccarthy and Hammond articles, but what to know if there is anything
looking at how native speakers acquire the plurals or any other perspective
 besides Prosodic Morphology.
 Thanks
