Message 2: Frequency counts

Date: Tue, 15 Jun 93 00:50:59 EDFrequency counts
From: Larry Horn <LHORNYALEVM.bitnet>
Subject: Frequency counts

I'm a bit embarrassed to be posting an inquiry on a subject I suspect has been
covered off and on, but my excuse is that I'm asking for a colleague; since
I haven't actually been working on anything that required frequency counts, I
didn't save whatever messages there may have been on the topic. Anyway, what
this colleague needs is anything (fairly) recent, or at least post-Thorndike,
on English word frequency counts. Hard format preferred, but if what there is
is on CD-ROM, or in some other format, that would be better than nothing.
Please write to me directly, and I'll post a summary if there is any interest.

Message 3: Course in cross-cultural communication

Date: Tue, 15 Jun 1993 15:20:39 Course in cross-cultural communication
From: Gwyn Williams <gwynipied.tu.ac.th>
Subject: Course in cross-cultural communication

Dear participants,

 I am teaching in the linguistics department of a university in Bangkok,
Thailand. In the semester beginning now, I am responsible for teaching the
cross-cultural communication course. I want to avoid too much of a lecture
format and get students involved in their own reading and research
projects. For example, one excellent source of data for them will be the
many tourists who visit Bangkok and the many foreigners who work and live
here. Any readings will be mainly English, but as I read Thai, students
will write reports, etc. in Thai.
 I would appreciate information or ideas from anyone who has taught such
a course in a country not their own (ie.,as an expatriat linguist),
especially Asian.

 Many thanks,
 Gwyn Williams <gwynipied.tu.ac.th>
