Message 1: Russian Syllable Structure/Phonotactics (Query)

Date: Mon, 16 May 1994 12:29:18 Russian Syllable Structure/Phonotactics (Query)
From: Martin Barry <Martin.Barrymanchester.ac.uk>
Subject: Russian Syllable Structure/Phonotactics (Query)

I'd be grateful for pointers to published (or other) material on syllable
structure and/or phonotactics in Russian. I need the information for a
study of some experimental phonetic data from Russian speakers that seems
to depend crucially on an argument from syllable structure. I'm anxious not
to try reinventing the wheel, especially not reinventing it the wrong shape
:-) so any suggested references or other information will be gratefully
received.

Martin Barry.

Subject: Graduate program numbers

We are looking for data on the number of students currently enrolled
in graduate programs in linguistics. Our data are as follows:
 MA students 32
 PhD students 13
 Faculty FTE 9.3
We'd be grateful if other programs would send their data directly:
 Bitnet: lingoukanvm
 Internet: lingoukanvm.cc.ukans.edu
Many thanks!

Message 3: Semi-virtual colloquium needed

Date: Mon, 09 May 94 20:42:13 EDSemi-virtual colloquium needed
From: <shelginaol.com>
Subject: Semi-virtual colloquium needed

 I have reached a point in my work with a particular area of linguistic
investigation where I badly need a colloqium -- to get some input from other
linguists. I am especially eager to avoid re-inventing the wheel. I'd like
to send a few of you (a dozen or so) a cassette tape that takes the place of
a live presentation, plus a brief handout , and a request for your comments
-- either in writing or on the tape, as you like. I'll include return
postage. The subject is, very roughly, how we distin- guish between hostile
language and non-hostile utterances containing the same words, with
particular focus on intonation; my major problem is probably finding an
appropiate notation. If you'd be interested, please let me know -- the
mailing address is PO Box 1137, Huntsville AR 72740-1137; e-mail is

Message 4: query about educational discourse analysis

Date: Mon, 16 May 1994 10:36:34 query about educational discourse analysis
From: Michael Newman <mnewmanmagnus.acs.ohio-state.edu>
Subject: query about educational discourse analysis

I'm teaching a course in applied linguistics at the masters level mostly
for elementary school teachers.

In covering discourse, I've been using part of Halliday & Hasan's "Language
Context, and Text" with somewhat mixed results. Does anyone have any
suggestions for alternative or supplementary readings of article length
which cover this area? Basically, I my goal is make clear the interactions
of text, meaning, and context, especially in reading so that (i) when they
get into courses which deal with schema theory and whole language
methodology in reading they will see the linguistic foundations--as opposed
to the purely psychological ones (ii) evaluate classroom language and
misunderstandings that take place in human interaction (iii) see how
culture affects reading and understanding.
