Subject: some references of sociolinguistics?

Dear members of LINGUIST,

I am doing my paper now, the subject is about television drug
commercials. I am using sociolinguistic approach, but I have
difficulties in finding any references.
Also, I would like to get any comment and suggestion about my study.

Thanks,
Lily

Message 2: Language lists

Subject: Language lists

Sir/Madam,


I am trying to find if there are any on-line sources of vocabulary for
languages in an IPA, or IPA compatible, format. I am seeking this on behalf
of a (less computer literate) colleague, whose area is comparative
linguistics. He is seeking langauges from a great many groups, not confined
to the well documented ones such as Indo-european.

If you have any hints or suggestions where we might go to find such data, or
for him to share what data he possesses, please email me on:

or

Best regards

Subject: WordNet for different languages


Hello,
I would like to know if for other languages beyond
English there are created thesauri of the WordNet
type, or are in the process of creation. We intend
to create one for Estonian.
