To the Linglist!

I welcome any reference on Berber languages (in English, German or=20
French), especially Kabyl. Checking in libraries has given me four=20
titles, of which one was from 1844!

Thank you in advance

My sincere apologies if this request is inappropriate; it doesn't seem
to be 'linguistics proper', but I thought some of you might be able to
help. The request has been forwarded through several individuals and
at least one other e-mail list (MEDLIB-L).

=================
I had a request from a patron who wanted to hire a "medical linguist".
This patron is developing a medical transcription program that uses
speech recognition to translate speech to text (if I understood the
concept correctly). He would like someone who is familiar with medical
terms and phonetic transcriptions of those terms and correct
pronunciation of those terms and variations in that pronunciation.

...

Has anyone ever heard of this area of specialization? Do you
know any such people? Please have them contact me directly.

I have a question about a speech fact that I have observed in Puerto
Rico, where many people write, I cannot say it is also said, 'de el
(+noun)'. In Spanish, this becomes 'del' simply. Since it seems to
have no foundation in oral performance, it makes me very interested in
trying to have some good, I hope, clues as to why this happens. Well,
if any of you has any, for ever thankful. JAPena
