From: F5JTL...WX3W/5 <f1jtlcarina.unm.edu>
Subject: Collectives

I'm doing some research on collectives. My main question is: what type of
lexical items are collectives? I'd be glad to obtain references about that
subject.I'm more interested in cross-linguistic references. I'll sum up
your suggestions and post them on LINGUIST.

Thank you.

Subject: searching ESL-methods for Indian target group

 Last week I was called by someone whose brother is teaching
 English to Indians in Canada. This brother likes to know if there
 exist appropriate methods for teaching English especially for
 this targetgroup or if any other methods can be recommended.
 Can anyone help?
 Please send messages to me personally. Thanks in advance!

Message 4: query - microphones for use with AIWA DAT and children

Date: Fri, 27 Aug 93 14:39:48 BSquery - microphones for use with AIWA DAT and children
From: Jim Scobbie <jimcogsci.edinburgh.ac.uk>
Subject: query - microphones for use with AIWA DAT and children

Is there anyone there with experience of audio-recording children
for subsequent acoustic analysis? I'm going to use an AIWA DAT which
has rather a poor gain, it would seem, so I'm looking for a mike
with a big output (or a mike to line pre-amp) to provide a signal
with less noise than I've got at the moment. I can use less gain,
but the mike I have only gives a quiet signal then. I think I want
to crank up the signal between the mike and the tape, rather than
between the tape and the Kay CSL.

Any recommendations?

Also, I'd like to collect your experiences using head-mounted boom
microphones or lapel mikes (either direct wire or radio-mike) with
four year olds. (e.g. SHURE SM_10)

Please email me if you can help.
