My colleague, Brigitte Nerlich, would like to know if anybody has written
or knows about any works concerning 'synecdoche' (possibly in relation to
truth)?
Please reply direct to her and we will summarise for the list.
The address is bnpsyc.nott.ac.uk

Thanks very much!

Dear netters,

I need a full conference agenda ASAP on MT Summit V in Luxmburg
(July 11-13, 1995). I have sent a fax to Sema Group in Brussels, but haven't
heard anything from them yet.

If anyone has a soft copy, please e-mail to yenkbah.com or
fax hard copy to 410-850-4592. Thank you very much!

Message 3: references sought

Subject: references sought

Can anyone send me references on verb-particle constructions (phrasal
verbs, two-word verbs, etc.), especially recent ones? I am aware mainly
of Bruce Fraser's dissertation going back to the late 60s or early 70s,
and wonder if it has been published since, but I'd like to know about
any sources published since that deal with the topic. I saw a reference
to phrasal verbs in a recent posting, but missed the original query and
never saw a summary with references; hope I'm not repeating something
just covered. Thanks.

Nancy Stenson.

Subject: linguistics question

I am reposting my request from last week because I realized that
I did not include my e-mail address with the question:

I am doing a project on the evolving sexual ideology and the lexicon that
reflects it. Can anyone think of words which referred to or
described sexual ideology during the Victorian period? These words can
either have died out since then, continue to be used today (with a
slightly different connotation or even with a radically different meaning).
So far, I've accumulated "Boston marriages" (no longer exists in our
current lexicon), "passionate friendships" (comes in and out of vogue),
and "queer" (continues to be used under the original definition). Once
again, even educated (or wild) guesses would be helpful. Thanks and
sorry about the mix-up.
