Subject: FAQ/references

[Moderators' note: Lynn Murphy has kindly sent us the following
FAQ on reference queries. As most of you know, a FAQ is a standard
message sent in reply to a Frequently Asked Question. In future, this
one will be sent to individuals asking very general reference
questions ("I'm doing a school project, and I wonder if anyone
could tell me how to find something on language acquisition...,"
etc.), but we wanted to post it to the whole list to encourage
others of you to write FAQs. If you have identified a Frequently
Asked Question and would be willing to put together an informational
message that could serve as our standard response, we would be
grateful for your help. Our thanks to Lynn for the following FAQ.]

 _________________FAQ______________________

Due to the increased burden on LINGUIST caused by queries regarding
references, it has become necessary to limit reference queries to
those which cannot be handled by an ordinary library search.
Some bibliographic sources for linguistics have been appended to this
message. Others may be found by contacting a reference librarian.

If a thorough search of bibliographic sources has left you with
unsatisfactory results, please resubmit your query, noting:
(1) what specific research question you are seeking to answer,
(2) what references you are already aware of, and
(3) what bibliographic sources you have consulted.

Thank you for your consideration and good luck in your research.
