I'm designing a syllabus for Arabic for the beginner's level,
implementing learnablility/ teachability hypothesis. I'm looking for
data from second language acquisition of Arabic to gain more support
as well as insight for my work. Is there anybody out there who is
familiar with any work/s done in this area? I'd appreciate any
bibliography (short or long) on the subject. My address
is alhawarmguvax.acc.georgetown.edu

Subject: Cuba

I'm sorry to use Linguist for this purpose, but due to my own
mind-blowing stupidity I have managed to delete a very long and
interesting message from someone in Canada on the subject of Cuba before I could
 reply, or even note down the respondant's name or address. If that
person reads this, please re-send your reply if you have it stored.

I did all the searches recommended by Linguist with no success.

Has anyone of you got any information on conferences/workshops concerning
applied linguistics or sociolinguistics in particular to be held in
Germany this year?

From: Uwe Reinke <sl16wwurrz.uni-sb.de>
Subject: Infos on controlled language for technical writing

Hello everybody out there,

One of our students is writing her final thesis on
controlled/restricted language and machine translation. She is
desperately looking for literature on the development of and
experiences with restricted languages. We know that several companies
and organizations such as Rank Xerox, Caterpillar, or the European
Association of Aerospace Manufacturers (AECMA) developed their own
versions of a simplified English, but we find it very difficult to get
hold of any reference material such as descriptions of the individual
approaches or results of any research work done in this field.

Is there anybody out there who could help us?

Greetings from Saarbruecken
