Dear fellow linguists,

I am happy to announce that after several years' of preparation the
Graduate School of Linguistics of the National Chengchi University
in Taipei, Taiwan was formally established at the beginning of this
school year in August. For now, the school offers an M.A. program
in Linguistics. We are trying hard to build up a collection of
linguistic books and journals for the school's library, and will be
most grateful for any donation of your own works (e.g., theses,
dissertations, monographs, etc.), linguistic books, and especially
back issues of journals. Please e-mail me directly; I'll
acknowledge the donations later on LINGUIST. Thank you very much.

Prof. One-Soon Her
Graduate School of Linguistics
National Chengchi University
Taipei, Taiwan

The St. Petersburg Association of Scientists
Izdatelstvo Evropeiskogo Doma Publishers (St. Petersburg)

of African Studies" (SPBJAS).
 This is the very first scholarly journal on Africa to be
published in Russia or in the CIS. The scope of the St.
Petersburg Journal of African Studies includes the main branches
of the humanities: linguistics, semiotics, cultural, social,
economical anthropology, ethnology, folklore and literature,
history and art studies.
 The first issue appeared in August 1993. It includes
articles of Igor Diakonoff's team on the reconstruction of the
phonological system of the Proto-Afrisiatic; Konstantin
Pozdniakov's work on structural analysis of noun class systems in
West Atlantic and Bantu languages, an article of Galina
Korshunova and Boris Uspensky on the part of speech typology in
Hausa, etc. In SPBJAS are published book reviews (it is intended
to review all the new scholarly books on Africa published in
Russian; foreign books are also reviewed) and information on
dissertations defended. Beginning from #2, there will be
published a list of all dissertations defended in USSR/Russia on
Africa since 1935.

 Subcription price is $10 (individuals), $20 (institutions)
for one issue; for two issues: $19 (individuals), $37
(institutions); for four issues: $37 (individuals), $75
 Shipping extra $2 per copy (air mail).

 The subscription money should be made payable by check or
bank draft (preferably in US dollars) to Man's Heritage Press
Ltd., P.O. Box 427, Woodmere, New York 11598, USA,

 or to: Dr. Gerard Dumestre, Institut national des langues et
civilistions orientales, 2, rue de Lile, 75007, Paris, France.

Universitetskaja nab., 3, St. Petersburg 199 034 Russia,
Fax (812)218 08 11, e-mail: <>
 Please, be aware that the post in Russia is very
slow; it takes from three to six weeks to receive in St.
Petersburg a letter mailed from the US, so the best way of
communiction is e-mail. Please do not be irritated if you do not
receive the ordered copy at once. Whenever possible, we mail
the Journal to subscribers from countries other than Russia.
Please, do not send subscription money in cash in envelopes: it
is risky.

 Looking forward for subscriptions, articles, book reviews,
notes, etc.,

 Valentin Vydrin, SPBJAS Managing Editor

Subject: NEDER-L: Electr. Magazine for Dutch Language & Literature

 * NEDER-L *
 * *
 * Elektronisch tijdschrift voor de neerlandistiek; *
 * Electronic Magazine for the Study of Dutch Language and Literature *
 * *
 * ISSN: 0929-6514 *

Since June 1992 the 'neerlandistiek', the study of the Dutch language
and literature, has its own electronic magazine: Neder-L. Neder-L is a
moderated magazine, most of the times containing articles in Dutch.
Each month about three Neder-L bulletins with several articles are
distributed around the EARN/Bitnet and Internet world.

Apart from the contributions of Neder-L subscribers, Neder-L publishes
once a month the following columns:
 - 'Linguistische Miniatuurtje' ('Linguistic Miniature') by dr. P.A.
 Coppen of the University of Nijmegen; in his column Coppen discusses
 interesting linguistic phenonema of the Dutch language.
 - 'Middelnederlandse literatuur en handschriften' ('Dutch and Flemish
 medieval literature and manuscripts') by dr. W. Kuiper of the
 University of Amsterdam.
 - 'Maandelijks tijdschriftenoverzicht' ('monthly survey of the contents
 of periodicals/magzines'). In this survey more than ten editors from
 several universities in the Netherlands and Belgium describe the
 contents of new magazines on the territory of the 'neerlandistiek'.
 At the moment the magazines concerned are: (documentatieblad
 werkgroep) Achttiende Eeuw, Forum der Letteren, Glot, Gramma/TTT,
 Leuvense Bijdragen, Literatuur, Millennium, Neerlandica Extra Muros,
 de Negentiende Eeuw, de Nieuwe Taalgids, Ons Geestelijk Erf,
 Reinardus, Spektator, Taal en Tongval, Tabu, Tijdschrift voor
 Nederlandse Taal- en Letterkunde.

If you, or maybe one of your colleagues, want to receive the Neder-L
bulletins you can subscribe for free. Send a mail message to:
