Our dept. (Language and Linguistics, U. of York, UK) is receiving two
blind students for the first time. There are many problems specific to
the learning of phonetics and linguistics which are only now beginning
to become apparent. Problems we know of so far include how to transmit
handouts with syntactic trees on them and how to teach
phonetic transcription. We'd appreciate hearing from anyone in language
or linguistics dept. anywhere who has had experience of teaching blind
students, even if you cannot provide solutions to the problems we are
likely to face.

If there is interest from the linguistics world at large and sufficient
information is forthcoming I will summarise.

thanks in advance

A student of mine asked a question that i couldn't answer. I
immediately thought of the Linguist.
Is there any difference between someone, somebody; anyone anybody.
no one, nobody?
Any replies would be appreciated.

Subject: Query: typewriter

For those speakers who have different vowels in 'writer' and
'rider', is there anybody out there who has the vowel of
'rider' as the second vowel of 'typewriter' (so that it sounds
like *'typerider'). I am particularly interested in speakers
from Ontario, and I believe that there should be some such
at least among people over the age of 50 or 55.
Please respond to me and if there is anything to summarize,
I will post a summary.

A colleague of mine working with neural networks is in search of corpora
related to dyslexia sufferers. Any information would be appreciated.
