Subject: home for article?

Last winter John Rennie, editor in chief of Scientific American, solicited
an article from me about endangered languages--not just about numbers and
distribution, but also about what sort of programs have been devised to
revitalize endangered languages and how linguists can contribute. I
solicited and received much helpful information via email from colleagues,
and I had my draft read by several of you. [Those of you who want more
details about subsequent editorial developments are invited to contact me.]

The original publication plans have fallen through, but the article
is now finished and revised. It is an article for the general public,
not for a journal. The three case studies presented are Irish, Maori
and Native Hawaiian, and the California Indian languages.

If anyone has any suggestions of placement for this article, please let me
know,

Frances Karttunen

Subject: Correction to my last post


I am trying to collect examples of non-IE languages where any
of the following pairs of terms begin with the same consonant
(or begin with a vowel):

who/what
this/that
kill/die

or any two or all three of

I(me)/thou(thee)/we(us)
night/not/we

or any two, three, or all four of

feather/fish/full/drink

I will post a summary.
