Message 1: ?dantica

Date: Tue, 05 Jul 1994 13:03:48 ?dantica
From: Christine Donnelly <donnellycclp2.clpgh.org>
Subject: ?dantica

I have come across a word - dantica - which appears several times in
ADVENTURES OF AN AFRICAN SLAVER: BEING A TRUE ACCOUNT OF THE LIFE OF
CAPTAIN THEODORE CANOT. The "dantica" is said to mean "exposition of
purposes", according to the text. The word also appears in ANTHONY
ADVERSE, with no explanation given. I can not locate this word in any
of our sources, including several etymology dictionaries, the OED, and
various foreign language dictionaries. Can anyone enlighten me as to the
etymology and pronunciation of "dantica"?

Message 2: Query: Health Care Provider Introductions

Date: Mon, 4 Jul 1994 19:42:44 -Query: Health Care Provider Introductions
From: Frederick Newmeyer <fjnu.washington.edu>
Subject: Query: Health Care Provider Introductions

Here is a query from someone not on the list:

I am interested in how health care providers (doctors, nurses, etc.)
introduce themselves to patients (first name only, professional title, etc.)
and how they introduce patients to other members of the health care team.
My goal is to understand how different modes of introduction affect
patient perception of quality of care received.

Please reply directly to Marilyn Goebel (mgoebelaccgw.ghc.org).

Thank you.

 Is Jacqueline Lindenfeld on e-mail? She has done work on
talk in the open markets of Paris. And can anyone give me the title of her
recent volume on this research, published by Benjamins? Thanks.

Message 4: Hindi phonetic representation

Subject: Hindi phonetic representation

Dear List Members,

Do any of you phonologists or phoneticists out there know
about recent work in the following languages: {Hindi, Urdu,
Punjabi}?

I am asking this question for a speech pathologist friend
who would like to get her hands on a good phonetic
representation system for the above languages. Her most
pressing need is for Hindi, but information on any of the
three would be greatly appreciated.
