Hello to everybody, my name is Conchita. I am knew in this Linguistic List and
I hope this message reach its destination. The reason for me to address
people in this group is because I would like to receive information about new
articles/books about the acquisition of a Second language from the perspective
of the linguistic theory. When I say new I mean works appeared after 1990.
Please, send me the name of the author and title of article (and periodical)
if you happend to know of an interesting work. Thank you for your help and
 sorry for my "non-native English".

Message 3: Retrospective tape recorder

From: David Fay <daf1gte.com>
Subject: Retrospective tape recorder

Does anyone know where I could get a retrospective tape recorder? This is a
recorder that continuously records into a digital memory buffer until a
signal is given to transfer the material onto tape. A device of this kind
would be very useful for selectively recording utterances after they have
occurred (e.g., speech errors).

Sanyo sold a product like this in 1988, which they called Memory Recorder.
I have never been able to locate one; even Sanyo America knows nothing
about it. I suspect that it was sold in Japan but withdrawn before it made
it to America.

If anyone has any information about the Sanyo product or anything
equivalent, I would love to hear about it.

From: <ling006cantva.canterbury.ac.nz>
Subject: Query:ling as science credit

The Department of Linguistics at Canterbury is preparing a proposal
to have linguistics courses available for credit to a Bachelor of
Science degree AS SCIENCE COURSES, not only as part of a humanities
distribution. Information about similar arrangements elsewhere
would be very useful to us.

IF 1) your university separates science and humanities course
credits and
2) linguistics courses are available for science credit at your
university
PLEASE SEND ME
(a) the name of your institution and (b) the title(s) of linguistics
courses available for science credit.

Please reply to k.kearnscsc.canterbury.ac.nz
or by snailmail (airmail postcard) to Kate Kearns, Linguistics Dept,
U of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Thanks for your help.
