Subject: NEW: Optimality Mailing List

Hello,

 I have created a new email (bounce-type) list for the discussion of
Optimality Theory, in all its incarnations and applications. I wanted to
provide a quick and easy way to facilitate discussion in this field, given
its recent rapid growth. Innovations and new applications are discovered
daily, and I hope that this list will help those interested to keep on top
of the latest developments, as well as provide more opportunities for joint
scholarship in the field. Anyone interested is welcome to join!

To join the OT mailng list:

Send an email to:

listservucsd.edu

With the following in the BODY of the message:

add [your email address] optimal

Thanks, and hope to hear from you soon!

To everybody who still doen't know that we exist, MAHL is an international
association, based in Melbourne, for people interested in historical
linguistics and related subjects. We publish a journal twice yearly
of academic papers, letters, reviews etc., and we are looking for new
members/subscribers all the time. Annual subs (including journal and
all mailouts) are A$15. The journal is called 'Dhumbadji!' (it means
'talk' in the extinct language of the local aboriginals) and no. 4 will
be out in June. If you're interested, you can e-mail me, Paul Sidwell,
directly on linpjslure.latrobe.edu.au and I'll make sure you get on
the list to receive Dhumbadji!. Thanks.
