From: "Dr M Sebba" <eia023cent1.lancs.ac.uk>
Subject: Query: Gujarati

I am posting this on behalf of Arvind Bhatt, who is currently teaching
an option in Gujarati for beginners here, as well as working on a
research project on biliteracy with English/Gujarati speakers.

He is looking for references to books/journal articles/other publications
on Gujarati language and language history, with a view to compiling
a comprehensive bibliography. All contributions gratefully received;
replies to me please. Thanks

Message 3: second person pronouns

Date: Tue, 19 Oct 93 15:10:48 -0second person pronouns
From: Ellen Kaisse <kaisseu.washington.edu>
Subject: second person pronouns

A student here at the University of Washington has a question to
answer for a Speech Communications class. Are there languages other
than English which make no distinction between second person
singular/plural NOR between formal and informal second person? In
other words, languages with Just One You?

Send answers to me (he has no email) and I will pass them on. If
anything interesting emerges, I will summarize for the list. (And no
fair bringing up y'all!)

Message 4: experimental methods

From: Mike Hammond <hammondconvx1.ccit.arizona.edu>
Subject: experimental methods


I've had several conversations recently with linguists at other
institutions about whether there's a growing acceptance of
psycholinguistic methods among orthodox phonologists and
syntacticians. My impression is that this is the case, but I really
don't know. So I have three questions:

First, is there a growing acceptance of psycholinguistic methods (or
other experimental methods) among generative linguists?

Second, if this development is taking place, is it skewed? That is, is
it happening more in some domains of linguistics than in others?

Third, if either of the above is so, why?

I realize these questions could lead discussion in all sorts of weird
directions, but what the hey.
