Macmillan Publishers Ltd. (London)/Stockton Press (New York) is considering
publishing, in both book and CD ROM formats, a comprehensive reference work
that will examine the different varieties of English as they are spoken
throughout the world. We would like to conduct a survey to help us assess
the linguistic community's views of such a work, and would be interested in
hearing from individuals with an interest in this subject area, who would
be willing to complete a survey. If you would like to take part in this
survey please contact Charles Regan at cregangrovestocktn.com. Thank you.

Dear members,

Could anybody help me with information about where to find a computerized
version of the Francis & Kucera word frequency count or any other reliable
frequency count for English?

Many thanks!

I am interested in learning more about the distribution of the voiced
velar fricative [gamma] in Russian. It is not clear to me whether it is
an allophone of [g] or of [x]. Any information or references would be
greatly appreciated.
