Subject: Q: English-early French dictionaries?

I posted this query on sci.lang but no response, so I'll ask here. Are there
any dictionaries which give 17th-Century French glosses for modern English
words? I'm constructing word-lists of various Iroquoian languages, in some
cases using early-contact Jesuit sources written in French. I want to make
sure I'm getting the correct words onto my lists.
Thanks

Message 3: participles

Date: Fri, 04 Mar 1994 14:34:41 participles
From: JO RUBBA <jrubbalewis.umt.edu>
Subject: participles


Greetings,

I am preparing a research proposal on a large-scale change
in the verbal system of Aramaic. Aramaic replaced its
original tense/aspect verb stems with participles -- the
active participle taking over for the 'imperfective' and
the passive for the 'perfective'.

My query is: is this a cross-linguistically common change?

Please respond to the e-mail address below. If there is
interest, I will post a summary to the list. Thanks in
advance to anyone who can help me out.

Cheers,

I would like to draw up a bibliography for the second language acquisition
of Spanish, particularly of classroom learning. Any references would be
very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Message 5: Qs: Rumanian spelling reform

Date: Sun, 06 Mar 94 16:49:06 MEQs: Rumanian spelling reform
From: Martin Haase <MHAASEdosuni1.rz.Uni-Osnabrueck.DE>
Subject: Qs: Rumanian spelling reform

It seems that a spelling reform has recently been introduced in Romania,
since I find people writing _c^ant_ ('I sing') and _^in cur^and_
('soon') instead of _c^int_ and _^in cur^ind_ (as some exile newspapers
always used to do). How far does the reform go (i.e. what about words
like 'bread', 'tomorrow' for example)? When was it introduced?
Please write to me, I'll send a summary to the list if I get interesting
results.
