For the listserv

A friend of mine who is not on the list has asked me to post a request
for references or information on a variety of spoken British English
called estuary English. If anybody can help, please send a reply to me
directly and I will forward the messages.
 Thanks a lot in advance.

Message 2: formal semantics and sign(ed) languages

Date: Mon, 6 Mar 1995 11:10:18 +formal semantics and sign(ed) languages
From: Ton van der Wouden <vdwoudenlet.rug.nl>
Subject: formal semantics and sign(ed) languages

Dear fellow linguists,

is any of you aware of any formal semantic approaches to sign(ed)
languages? The bibliography of Joachin & Prillwitz (Hamburg: Signum
1993) doesn't give any clue. The only name we can think of ourselves
in this respect is Karen Petronio, who gave a talk at Barbara Partee's
qquantification workshop at the Linguistic Institute in Tucson, AZ., in
1989, and who wrote a dissertation at U. of Washington in
1993. According to the linguistic nameserver her email address is
petroniouconnvm.bitnet, but that adress no longer works. Where can
she be reached these days? Other information about this topic is
welcome as well. If there is enough response, I will give a summary.
Thank you!

Message 3: Q: Van Lancker, automatic speech preprint

Subject: Q: Van Lancker, automatic speech preprint

Content-Length: 1385

I would appreciate any leads on a paper by Diana Van Lancker
which was cited as a preprint but appears never to have been
published (as far as I can determine). Victoria Fromkin
is mentioned as Van Lancker's colleague. Perhaps one of
them or another helpful soul will be kind enough to fill
me in on the paper's fate.

"A hypothetical Continuum of Propositional and Automatic
 Speech Modes and Their Properties" by Diana Van Lancker.
Cited on p.13 in Bolinger, D. (1976). Meaning and memory.
 Forum Linguisticum, 1(1), 1-14.

Please reply directly. Thank you.
