Subject: language & coercion

A friend in the Sociology dept here is working on means of coercion, and
asked if anything is available by linguists on language as an instrument
for coercion. I said I'd ask the list. If anyone can give me a lead, it
would be appreciated. Please reply directly to me, Don Frantz, at

Subject: Intro to Romance

For an introductory linguistics course for undergraduates/
graduate students in Romance languages, are there recommendations
for materials with examples/exercises in Spanish and Portuguese
and discussions of the history of the Romance languages?

Hello,

I am looking for information regarding examples of equipping faculty offices
and student classrooms with linked computers with improved accessibility for:

Computer Aided/Managed Instruction, innovative use of technology, faculty
support, distance learning, self-paced instruction, technology integration
into curriculum

especially in the fields of

Accounting,
Mathematics
Management,
Reading,
Writing,
the Social Sciences,
Education,
and Computer Science.

Another area of interest is improvement of basic competency in mathematics,
writing, and reading skills. And while I am at the receiving end, I am also
interested in use of computers in a foreign language learning laboratory.

The objective is to develop a plan to improve student retention, time to
graduation, and employability.

If this is not the appropriate list for this information, would someone
please guide me in the right direction. I apologize for cross-posting this
message on a few lists.

I will summarize the findings and post them if there is sufficient interest.

Thank you.

Malik
