Message 1: Two Questions

Subject: Two Questions

Two questions, one for myself and one for a philosophy colleague.

My own: Does anyone have the address for the new John Benjamins journal
_Functions of Language_? Or for Nottingham Occassional Papers in Linguistics?

My friend's: [responses to this question should be sent directly to
jdrydykccs.carleton.ca]

Message 2: Query: The use of the term 'psychological'

From: <Alexis_Manaster-RamerMTS.cc.Wayne.edu>
Subject: Query: The use of the term 'psychological'

Does anybody have any ideas about the history of references
to 'psychology' and 'psychological' in linguistics BEFORE
Gabelentz (who seems to have introduced the 'psychological
subject') in grammar and Baudouin de Courtenay and Sapir
in phonology? I emphasize the 'before' because there is
tons of stuff later, which there is no need to burden the
Internet with.

 Could anyone suggest good textbooks to teach Field Method? I am
 assigned to teach this course for the firat time, and the previous
 instructor did not use any textbook.
 Thanks!

A student of mine is working on the grammar of Burushaski

1. A native speaker with internet access
