Message 1: applying to phd programs

Subject: applying to phd programs

I'm applying for phd programs this fall, and am hoping that there are some
people who are recently through the process who are willing to share some
pointers and "interesting" experiences. I'd also be interested in getting
the inside scoop on what some of the phd programs are like. I'll be
applying to applied and discourse-oriented programs, but would really like
to hear anyone's experiences in linguistics.

What's Linguist's position on confidentiality? I'd like to guarantee
confidentiality of responses, or else anonymity if there is interest in a
summary. In any case, I will handle all responses with *great care*.

I know that there exists a multimedia IPA database with sounds. This
database runs on Macintosh. Can somebody tell me if there is a PC version?

Thank you very much in advance.

Subject: query

Dear Linguists, not long ago a friend asked me whether I had heard
or seen anything linking Albert Einstein's theory of Relativity
with his ruminations on Saussure while strolling through a museum
in Paris, I believe. It sounded vaguely familiar at the time, but
I have been unable to find any leads running down where we might have
gotten this idea. Perhaps we were dreaming. Perhaps not. Can any-
one help with a citation linking Einstein and Saussure in any way?
Thanks for your help.
