Message 1: Third Language Learning Rep

Date: Mon, 14 Nov 1994 13:52:32 Third Language Learning Rep
From: Robert Fouser <Robert.Fouserlarc.su.edu.au>
Subject: Third Language Learning Rep

I am working on a Ph.D. on language transfer in third language (L3)
acquisition. I would like to collect short informal reports on various
third language learning experiences to augment elicited data. Reports may
be on past or present third language learning experiences and may be
specific or general, humorous or serious -- whatever you feel was (is) most
 relevant
to your learning experience. Feel free to report on interesting experiences
in learning languages beyond L3. Please note that all reports will be
confidential and that real names will not be used in any published research
that contains quotations from the reports. Please send reports to the
address given at the end of this message.

Thank you very much for you help.

Bob Fouser

I'm relaying this request from a non list member. I will
forward and sumarize to the list responses sent to me if they seem of
general interest, or you may reply directly to:

Does anyone know any published papers and/or linguists who
are working on discourse strategies by rapists or similar violent
sexual offenders? I'll report any information received to the Linguist
List in due course.

Message 4: Cuba

From: "Paul Foulkes" <Paul.Foulkesnewcastle.ac.uk>
Subject: Cuba

Given the current American embargo of Cuba, I was wondering whether
intellectual material is subject to the same restrictions. Do any linguists
on the list communicate professionally with Cuban academics, and/or
has anyone had problems trying to? I'll post a summary if there are any
replies.
