ANNOUNCING A NEW LIST ON SOUTH ASIAN LINGUISTICS:

 	VYAKARAN

This list was started in October 1995 as an informal forum for all who are
interested in the languages of South Asia, both modern and classical.

The aim of this list is to further discussion among interested scholars in
ALL aspects of South Asian languages, primarily but not only Indo-Aryan
languages. Thus, comments and questions on everything from historical
linguistics to the modern Indo-Aryan languages, from socio-linguistics to
morphology and syntax, from phonology and diglossia to Panini and the
Hindi-Urdu question are welcome, just to name a few.

Right now, all mailings are being done by hand, so it will sometimes take
two or three days for postings to be sent out. All you have to do to join
is send a message with the subject: VYAKARAN to

 gor05rz.uni-kiel.d400.de

with the message:

subscribe VYAKARAN firstname_lastname, emailaddress

and that's it! Within a few days you should receive confirmation of your
subscription.

If you have any questions, feel free to write to me at the following
address:

gor05rz.uni-kiel.d400.de

SVAGATAM!

Message 2: New Web page with links for translators

Date: Wed, 11 Oct 1995 18:17:02 New Web page with links for translators
From: "Anna Mazzoldi" <mazzoldiiol.ie>
Subject: New Web page with links for translators

I am a freelance translator working in Ireland, and I
would like to announce my new web page with links of
interest to translators. The URL is:

<http://www.iol.ie/~mazzoldi/lang/index.html>;

This page is entirealy a personal effort, and of
course it is still under construction (and what
isn't?): I will be glad for any suggestions, comments
or pointers. At the same time, I think that it is a
potentially useful collection of links to resources
for translators - you might like to have a look.

Thank you

Anna

INVITATION TO VIEW LJP, ISSUE #2

You are invited to browse Language in the Judicial Process, an electronic
journal of language and law available on the World Wide Web at
http://hamlet.la.utk.edu. Issue #2, which went online this week, contains
new items:

* Abstracts of all papers given at the Second Conference of the International
Association of Forensic Linguists. (This section includes a photograph of
the editor relaxing "down under.")

* A description of and ordering information for the fall 1995 issue of
Washington University Law Quarterly (Vol. 73, No. 3), a special issue
focusing on linguistics and law. Its centerpiece is the transcript of an
interdisciplinary conference held this spring, entitled, "What is Meaning in a
Legal Text? A Dialogue Among Scholars of Law and Linguistics," which
was sponsored by Northwestern University and Washington University
Law School. In addition, it contains 7 essays by conference participants and
18 essays by other scholars (primarily from the law) offering commentary
on the themes of the conference: meaning and interpretation in legal
contexts, and the possibilities for intellectual as well as practical
collaboration between the two disciplines.

* Information about "Language Legislation and Linguistic Rights": An
International Conference to be hosted by The University of Illinois March
21-23, 1996. A select group of speakers from around the world will address
linguistic issues such as language and culture, language and power,
 bilingualism;
and the linguistic aspects of social issues such as community vs. individual
 rights,
cultural survival, and free trade. Organizers are Dennis E. Baron (English),
Eyamba Bokamba (English as an International Language, C. C. Cheng (Language
Learning Laboratory), Braj B. Kachru (Linguistics), and Douglas A. Kibbee
(French).

* Details about online (and other) versions of "The Legal List."

* New citations.

[Issue #1 (June 1995) remains available for browsing.]

Coming in Issue #3:

 * A database of cases dealing with foreign- and sign-language interpreting
and the legal system.

* A companion database of articles and book titles related to foreign- and
sign-language interpreting and the legal system.

* More citations and summaries.
