Subject: Syntax Text?

Hello to everyone!

I am a graduate student in Linguistics at California State Uiversity
Northridge and am now preparing to take my comprehensive exams. I am
looking for suggestions on a good (and clear!) book on Syntax that will
help me prepare for this section of the comprehensive exams. Please email
me at hblin001huey.csun.edu

Thanks,

Dave

Subject: phonological variation


 I am in search of papers on phonological variation in
conversational/informal speech within American English (in any
region of the country). I am specifically interested in papers
that have attempted to measure the types of variation and their
frequency. Library and journal searches have not turned up much that
fits the bill. Thank you for any leads.

Message 3: Query: Wolof glide insertion

Date: Sun, 19 Feb 1995 12:35:26 Query: Wolof glide insertion
From: <JPKIRCHNERaol.com>
Subject: Query: Wolof glide insertion

Wolof has a rule that inserts either /j/ or /w/ between vowels at morpheme
boundaries. I cannot find anything that explains the mechanism for choosing
one or the other. It looks to me as if /w/ is chosen before a back vowel,
and that this vowel can later be fronted by another rule. Does anyone know
if this is right?

Hi! I would appreciate it if you could tell how I can receive the syllabus
for course X in the Dept. of Linguistics at the Z University in America or
Europe, through e-mail.
Thank you very much. Sincerely Parpar.
