Message 1: studies on SLA of Hungarian?

Date: Thu, 17 Aug 1995 12:08:26 studies on SLA of Hungarian?
From: Szilvia Papp <ALISZPPsrv0.arts.ed.ac.uk>
Subject: studies on SLA of Hungarian?


I am currently writing a PhD on the second language acquisition of
Hungarian by native speakers of English, with particular reference to
their ability to acquire the unique focus feature in Hungarian.

Since I am not aware of any other existing or on-going study,
I would like to know whether there is anybody else out there doing
any relevant work on the topic of Hungarian as a L2 who would
like to share their ideas with me.

If there is sufficient interest, I'll post a summary to the List.

Subject: Re: help with Spanish translation

I am translating a paper of mine into Spanish for submission to the
upcoming international conference on activity theory (Vygotsky) to be held
in Havana. While I am an experienced English/Spanish translator, my
knowledge of Spanish ed/psych terminology is very limited.
If anyone is able to help me with any of the following "demons" I'd really
appreciate it.
Thanks,

Pete Farruggio

Message 3: Looking for Horn's Negation book

Subject: Looking for Horn's Negation book

I need to find a copy of Laurence Horn's (1989) book entitled _A Natural
History of Negation_ (Univ. of Chicago Press). The publisher tells me that the
paperback edition went out of print in February 1995 and the hard cover edition
before that. If anyone can tell me where to find a copy of the book for sale,
I'd appreciate it tremendously. I'm willing to buy new or used, hard cover or
paperback. (The book is essential for my thesis.)

Thank you for any assitance. Please respond to:
