A graduate student not on e-mail is studying temporal and
causal uses of 'as' in English. She is having trouble
finding literature on the subject and would appreciate
any help you could provide.

Subject: query on bilingual ed

I am looking for recent, up to date information on the situation of
bilingual education both,ESL and native language ed for the Indian tribes
of the Southwest, especially the Navaho. All the articles that I have been
able to find are 20 years old and I am sure the situation has changed.
Any personal knowledge or anything that might be available on fileserver
would be appreciated. Thanks very much

Message 3: IPA History

Date: Tue, 19 Apr 1994 08:33:43 IPA History
From: Henry Rogers <rogersepas.utoronto.ca>
Subject: IPA History


A few historic questions about the IPA.

1.In its early years, the IPA used a typeface which appears to be a
bold face of the Century family, possibly Monotype Century Schoolbook.

 Does anyone have reliable information about this typeface?

2. Did the IPA have a policy in its early years of discouraging the
implementation of the Alphabet in other typefaces?

3. At some point the IPA apparently switched to Times Roman. Does
anyone know when this happened? The evidence I have is confusing. My
copy of 'Principles' is dated 1949 (reprinted 1964) and is set in
Century. Other sources show a version 'revised to 1947' (here the chart
is turned 90 degrees and printed (mostly) in what appears to be Times?

I would appreciate any help in sorting this out for an article I am
writing on phonetic typography.

Many thanks

Hank Rogers

Subject: help with sources on contrastive Persian- English grammar


As a PhD student I am do a research on the contrastive analysis
of Persian-English Tense(inc. Mood) and Aspect systems with
regard to translation problems. I should like to know what
sources are available with respect to:

a. the comparison of Tense and Aspect systems of English with
any other language,

b. grammatical analysis of translated English texts showing the
effect of correct analysis of grammatical clues in exact
rendring of the Source text,

c. any other source related to the topic with specific reference
to Persian.

The responses are highly appreciated. A copy of the list will
be posted to LINGUST so that others interested in the topic can
get the sources.

May I ask all to send their message to my e-mail address:

gaskccl.umist.ac.ukThanks in anticipation
