Message 1: spell checking linguistic papers

Subject: spell checking linguistic papers

Having just entered a number of linguistic terms into a spell
checker's "personalized" dictionary for a paper I was checking, it
occurs to me that I'm probably not the only one who needs to build up
such a list. Does anyone maintain a correctly spelled (in English)
list of linguistic terms and names of well-published linguists that
they would be willing to share? Or is there an archive somewhere?
Hopefully maintained by someone who
is a better spelerr than me...

Message 2: query about Latin

Subject: query about Latin

A student of mine had a question about Latin that went beyond my primitive
knowledge. In Latin if you have a list of 3 NP's and want to connect them
with "and", does "-que" go only on the last NP or on the second two? Thanks.

Message 3: Southeast Asian Languages Interest Group

Subject: Southeast Asian Languages Interest Group

I noticed in Comrie's list of computer bulletins for language interest
groups that there were very few for Asia. The ones that were listed for
Asia were only for North Asia, such as Chinese and Japanese.

I wondered why there weren't interest groups for the many national
languages of Southeast Asia as well as the many minority languages in this
region. With the good attendance at the annual Sino-Tibetan Conferences,
one would think that some language interest group would exist for
Sino-Tibetan at least. Also the SEALS (Southeast Asian Linguistics
Society) has been meeting annually for the past few years -- so this
should potentially generate another source of people interested in SEA
languages.

Here in Thailand there are a number of Thai academics who study local
languages -- and I imagine the same is true for the many linguists in
other SEA countries.

My question is: Is there anyone who would start a language interest group
for SEA languages (Sino-Tibetan, Mon-Khmer [Austroasiatic], Austronesian)?
Please let me know if there already are some email nets for these language
families, or if anyone is interested.

Subject: help needed

Hello everyone,
A freind of mine is working on Chinese resultative verbs (compounds)
and she needs some help in finding appropriate references. If you
know of any books and articles on this subject, and also on English
resultative verbs, please email the references to the following
address:
 lzhengguvax.georgetown.edu
Also, does anyone know of an article written by Jane Simpson (?) on
English resultative verbs? It is said to be in a book on lexical
functional grammar. Only this much I know.
Thank you in advance for your kind help. I will post a summary on
Linguist list. Best wishes!
