Message 2: Q: Tibetan fonts

Date: Fri, 20 May 94 16:42:51 ESQ: Tibetan fonts
From: Picus Sizhi Ding <Picus.Dinganu.edu.au>
Subject: Q: Tibetan fonts

I've tried to locate an ftp site for obtaining a Tibetan font, either Mac
or PC, but without luck. I remember seeing some sources for several fonts
of Indian scripts, e.g. in U. Illinois. Could anybody provide me specific
information on this?

Thanks in advance. (I'll post an FYI, which can go into the FAQ perhaps.)

Message 3: The Pragmatics of Teacher Directives

Date: Fri, 20 May 1994 12:03:05 The Pragmatics of Teacher Directives
From: <EDULYLURE.LATROBE.EDU.AU>
Subject: The Pragmatics of Teacher Directives

I have started gathering data for work on the pragmatics of teacher directives
in the classroom. I have/will be video and audio-taping three groups in the
classroom: experienced NS of Australian English (collected, 32 hrs), NS off
Australian English student teachers on first major teaching practicum (24
hrs.?) (ongoing), Chinese L1 from PLC student teachers (over next 18 mths.)
I have had to ensure anonymity of all subjects etc., but would love to hear
from others working on classroom data. My data will be mostly science, maths
business, but there are others here at La Trobe working on language classrooms.

Message 4: North Wakashan Comparative Root List

Date: Thu, 19 May 1994 17:00:12 North Wakashan Comparative Root List
From: <coonCVAX.IPFW.INDIANA.EDU>
Subject: North Wakashan Comparative Root List

 I am desperately seeking a copy of Lincoln and Rath's North
Wakashan Comparative Root List. The folks at our local Interlibrary
Loan Office are getting tired of seeing me. If you have one you would
be willing to sell or can point me to a likely source it would be
appreciated.
Please reply to me directly,

From: "l. yee" <lyeejulian.uwo.ca>
Subject: French toddler lang. acquisition

How idiosyncratic are rhymming patterns for a 2yr. 9mos. old bilingual
toddler? I observed my daughter saying the following:

"Papa, grand'homme, papa fant^ome, papa mange gomme."
