I am passing on a request from a colleague:

Can someone help with salient sources for research on Australian
sociolinguistics, including (but not limited to) the development of

Dear Linguists:
I am looking for information about dictionary making programs for the
Macintosh. Do Macintosh programs of such sort exist for non-Indo-
European languages? Thank you.
