Can anyone direct me to work in Speech Accommodation Theory that addresses lexi
cal choice, rather than rate of speech, tone, etc? Thank you in advance. Will
 post results if others are interested. Michele Kilgore

I'm looking for a word processing package (for Microsoft Windows) that
supports TrueType fonts for English and Chinese (GB encoding). One package
that I've heard about is Gamma Universe for Windows, and I was wondering
if anyone has used it and can share some experience on it?

Also, if there are other packages that provide similar support, I'd really
appreciate a pointer to them as well ...

Thanks in advance,
Ping Lin

What is the origin of the expression, P.U.!, meaning
"odious,undesirable,noxious" and the like? I have looked up several lists of
abbreviations bvut no luck. TIA, A.
