Message 1: Query: external sandhi

Date: Mon, 8 Aug 1994 14:00:00 -Query: external sandhi
From: Joseph P Stemberger <stembergmaroon.tc.umn.edu>
Subject: Query: external sandhi

Does anyone know of any papers that:

 a) survey the types of phonological processes that occur
 as external sandhi, across languages
 b) compares external sandhi processes to internal sandhi
 processes, to see if there are any differences,
 cross-linguistically

I'm looking specifically for a survey article, not for papers that address
only one language. Within a given language, a phonological process might
just be internal sandhi, or just be external, or be both. But what I'm
interested in is whether, across languages, internal and external sandhi
tend to be different. Are there some types of processes that can only be
internal sandhi? Are there some types that can only be external sandhi? Or
are internal and external sandhi pretty much comparable, differing only in
the domain over which the process is defined?

Send any responses directly to me. I'll summarize for the list.

Message 2: markers of hostile language

Subject: markers of hostile language

For a seminar on verbal abuse and verbal self-defense in November, I am
looking for markers of hostile language/verbal abuse in various languages.
Not markers of anger only -- the reasonable expression of justifiable anger
being equivalent to verbal abuse only by accident -- but markers of language
that is hostile for the purpose of getting and holding attention,
demonstrating power and control, etc. I am not after curses and obscenities
but markers added to otherwise neutral language that can serve the purpose of
conveying hostility . I have a handful of such items -- for English,
Japanese, Navajo, and Aymara; I would greatly appreciate others. I will post
a summary of responses.

Subject: Translation Research

In preparation for writing a review paper on the psycholinguistics
of translation and interpretation, I would like to hear from anyone
who is doing empirical work in this area. Any research on the
cognitive processes involved in translation and interpretation
would be relevant. If you are conducting research in this area,
or know of others, please let me know. If there is sufficient
interest, I will post a summary of the responses to the list.
Thanks for your help.
