Subject: course

Next year I am going to teach an undergraduate course (3rd
year) called "Language and Influence". Has anybody taught a
similar one and could share some ideas (or hasn't taught but
still could share them)?.

Thanks in advance,

 I was wondering if those more knowledgeable than I in this area could
tell me what the current thinking of psycholinguists is about the notion of
a critical period in language acquisition. My last knowledge about this topic
stems from my undergraduate days, when we learned about Lenneberg's proposal
that localization had to occur by puberty; afterwards, I had heard that
Krashen had proposed the age of 5 or 6. I don't know what the current
idea is. I'd be grateful for any responses (preferably to me directly), and
then I'll post a summary. Thanks,----

Subject: audio tape wanted


I'm trying to locate a copy of an audio tape which goes with
the volume:

"Standards and Dialects in English", Shopen T. and J.M. Williams (eds),
Winthrop, Cambridge Mass. 1980.

I've tried the publishers and several libraries to no avail.
If anyone can help, I'd be very grateful.

Subject: Query: ACL databse of lexical resources

I am looking for information about the ACL's database of lexical resources.
Especially, I would like to know how one might gain access. Thanks in
advance.
