On December 27th the Nova program seen on many public television stations
in the United States will present "In Search of the First Language", a
documentary on recent work on extremely remote linguistic relationships
including Proto-World. This is a remake by WGBH of the BBC film
"Before Babel" and is said to be less one-sided. The original included
Joseph Greenberg, Merritt Ruhlen, Aharon Dolgopolsky, Vitaly Shevoroshkin,
Colin Renfrew, Luca Cavalli-Sforza, Bill Labov, and Don Ringe. The new
version adds Jim Matisoff and Sally Thomason (and perhaps others).

Dear Sir\Madame,

We plan to start the publication of a series of working papers.
We expect there two be two or three papers by our researchers quarterly.
The first three issues are ready for distribution:

Brody, M. Phrase Structure and Dependence
E.Kiss, K. Generic and Existential Bare Plurals and the Classification
 of Predicates
Kalman, L. Conditionals, Quantification and Bipartite Meanings

Further, it is our intention to distribute the papers in exchange for
similar publications of other institutions.
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in this
exchange - and\or if you know of any institution that you think might be
interested in such an undertaking. The e-mail address is
