From: Ali Aghbar <AAGHBARgrove.iup.edu>
Subject: Genie Video Update

I have received many inquiries from outside North America about a
message I posted a couple of months ago about a video program on
Genie, entitled THE SECRET OF THE WILD CHILD. The 800 number
(800-255-9424) is good only in North America. Here is the
address, phone number, and the fax number for the distributer:

WGBH
P. O. Box 2284
South Burlington, VT 05407
U.S.A.

Phone: 802 862 8881 (ask for the ordering department)
Fax No.: 804 864 9846

SECRET OF THE WILD CHILD is produced by PBS (Public Broadcasting
System) as part of the NOVA series.

Message 4: Poem (Re: 5.1276 Eskimo "snow")

Date: Mon, 28 Nov 94 11:03:37 +0Poem (Re: 5.1276 Eskimo "snow")
From: maire ni chiosain <MAIRENICIRLEARN.UCD.IE>
Subject: Poem (Re: 5.1276 Eskimo "snow")

As a footnote to the recent exchanges, linguists may be interested
in the following short poem by the Dublin poet, Aiden Mathews,
entitled The Death of Irish:
 The tide gone out for good,
 Thirty-one words for seaweed
 Whiten on the foreshore
(Reproduced on p.1428 of The Filed Day Anthology of Irish Writing and
currently on display on the Dublin Metro as part of a poetry-for-the-
people campaign).
I have not enquired what the thirty-one words might be. But then are
we not dealing here with feelings rather than facts?
