Message 1: Textlinguistics

Subject: Textlinguistics

What are the latest published contributions to the field of textlinguistics
(or, if you prefer, discourse analysis for written texts)? I'm trying to
determine the current status of textlinguistics based on the previous 5-10
years of development in the field. Another way to approach the question might
be simply--what are the "top" five books on textlinguistics currently in use?
Thanks for your help. Oh, and current and pertinent journal articles would
also be of great interest. Thanks.

A query on behalf of someone not on Linguist _ does anyone have a
bibliography of recent work on language origins, or can anyone suggest
recent references? Please send replies to me - I will pass them on, and
forward a summary to Linguist

Subject: seeking Comparative Tai

I am looking to buy one or two copies of the following:
A Handbook of Comparative Tai
by Li Fang Kuei
University of Hawaii Press, 1977
(Oceanic Linguistics special pub. 15)
It is--unfortunately--out of print. Please let me know if
you have a copy you are willing to part with,
or if you've seen it at your local used-book store.
Many thanks,
David Solnit
