Subject: query about Arabic loanwords in Persian

Dear LINGUIST,

A student of mine is working on a linguistic analysis of Arabic
loanwords in Persian and would like to know whether or not there exist
works or papers on this issue, especially in regard to the methodology
applied such as concatenative or autosegmental. Any advice is greatly
appreciated!

Thank you for your help!

Message 2: Colloquial Lhasa Tibetan Reference Grammar

Mauricio Mixco has asked me to post this query for him. Please respond
directly to him.


In about three weeks, I'm teaching a one-quarter field methods course
using Colloquial Lhasa Tibetan; I can't find a grammatical
sketch/reference grammar or pedagogical grammar in our library (Utah
or BYU) which doesn't involve learning the orthography. Can someone
help me find one using a phonemic transcription appropriate for my
purposes?

Message 3: phonetic software query

From: <LING003cantva.canterbury.ac.nz>
Subject: phonetic software query


We here are looking for suitable software to support articulatory
phonetics instruction on Macs. We have seen the demo package for the
University of Michigan Phonetics software, but before committing
ourselves to that we would be interested in anyone's experience with
that or any other similar software.

More specifically, we want something which will support the learning
of the IPA symbols, with accompanying sounds and illustrations of
articulatory movements through cartoons or video. Acoustic phonetics
is not so important for our purposes.

I should add that not all the machines in student labs here are
PowerMacs; there are still some Classics around. So it would be good
to know if there is anything on these lines which is usable on
Classics.

I will post some sort of consumer report based on what people send me.
