Subject: Braille phonetic alphabet

I have been asked by someone not on the list if there exists such a thing as
a Braille version of the International Phonetic Alphabet. Please forward any
pointers to: lessardfrancais.queensu.ca and I will summarize if appropriate.

Thanks in advance,

It appears that we will have to add the following to the growing list
of standard references in the study of tense-aspect including Comrie
1976, 1985, Dahl 1985, Binnick 1991, etc.:

Bybee, Joan; Revere Perkins and William Pagliuca. 1994. The Evolution
of Grammar: Tense, Aspect, and Modality in the Languages of the World.
Chicago: U of Chicago Press.

Q1: does anyone have a reference to a book review of this work,
whether in print, in press or forthcoming?
Q2: does anyone have an email address for Bybee  U of New Mexico, or
for Perkins, Pagliuca, or for the GRAMCAT project on which the text is based?
Q3: would anyone care to give a brief review off the list as a basis
for a brief correspondence?

thanx in advance.

A colleague is looking for Insup Taylor, a psycholinguist
who has worked on bilingualism. A search of the LINGUIST
subscriber list, the LSA directory of US/Canada programs,
and the LSA membership list did not turn her up. If anyone
has her email or snailmail address, please reply to the
address below.

Thanks very much,

Message 4: speech community

From: <00v0horvathbsuvc.bsu.edu>
Subject: speech community

I am trying to trace the origin and the development of the term and of the
concept of "speech community" in linguistics. So far the earliest occurrence
of the term that I am aware of is a chapter in Bloomfield's Language (1933).
Can you direct me to earlier sources where this term, or an equivalent in
another language was used? I will post a summary to the list. Thank you.
