Subject: References on Navajo Phonetics and Phonology

Here is a summary of the bibliographic information I received with
regards to work on Navajo phonology and phonetics. I also include more
general works that deal with phonology/phonetics among other things.
Thanks to the many people who responded, and whom I list at the end. I
didn't include everything people sent me in this list, so I hope no
one feels offended by an omission: you may put it down to my possibly
poor judgment about what is relevant to my immediate interests.
