Message 1: Mac ReNumber

Subject: Mac ReNumber

At the LSA in Chicago in 1990 (before I had a Mac large enough to run
it) there was a product on display called ReNumber. It renumbered
examples in a paper, as well as references to them in the text. A
couple months ago I wrote to the address given at the LSA, but received no
response. Is the software (or something comparable/better) still
available?

Thanks.

I would like to know if anyone is aware of a sommercourse in
psycholingustic which I (as a ph.d.student) can attend to this summer (Im
particular interested in speech errors).

Message 3: German lexis query

Dear List,

At the tip of Africa material on German dialects is a bit thin on the
ground, and what I want to know may require someone who is a dialect
speaker or dialectologists.

Does anybody know of a German word (probably Bavarian) Krell meaning
'bead'? I was once told by a Bavarian that this was the meaning of
the word, and that it had a plural in -en. The only place I have come
across it is as a surname: Duerer painted a picture of someone called
Oswald Krell, and it is my wife's maiden name. I suspect it is in no
way related to Afrikaans kraal 'bead' which is presumably a French
loan from 'coral', nor to standard German Krelle. Any help would be
appreciated.

Greetings!
A friend of mine, who isn't in e-mail, is interested in topics on the border
of metaphor and symbol, especially the issue of conventionality. Any sugges-
tions, comments, and bibliography will be appreciated. Please, e-mail to me,
or write to: MARIA LIBURA, ul. Akademicka 3/47, 02-038 WARSZAWA, POLAND.
Thanks in advance. Adam
