Subject: Ph.D programs

A colleague of mine, who is a Professor of English in Japan, is seeking
 information
regarding non-resident Ph.D programs in Linguistics available in the U.S.--a
 course of
study he would pursue while still in Japan. Where would we find such
 information? Please
help us in any way you can. Thank you very much for your time. (Please respond
 directly
to the above email address.)

From: Jane Herman <jhermanepas.utoronto.ca>
Subject: Singapore query

On behalf of a friend who has been offered a teaching position at the
National University of Singapore, I'd like to ask 2 questions.

1. Does anyone have experience living in Singapore or teaching at NUS?

2. If so, could you tell me about your experience? Insights,
suggestions, or special considerations would be welcome.


Please address a reply to jhermanepas.utoronto.ca

Thanks.

Message 3: syllabus request for Gender and Language course

Date: Tue, 11 Jul 1995 10:49:27 syllabus request for Gender and Language course
From: Schneider-Zioga <pschneidchaph.usc.edu>
Subject: syllabus request for Gender and Language course

I will be teaching a course (upper division undergraduate) on "Gender and
Language" this Fall and I would
like to see examples of syllabi that other people have used for this kind of
class. I am also interested in relevant books, readings and videos.
Alternately, maybe this information is already available somewhere on WWW
and someone knows the address? I will be happy to summarize for the list.
Thanks,

Message 4: homophones in English dialects

Date: Tue, 11 Jul 1995 12:21:57 homophones in English dialects
From: Suzanne Cadwell <scadwellemail.unc.edu>
Subject: homophones in English dialects

I work with students with written language learning disabilities. My
students and I create personalized editing checklists, one component of
these checklists being a list of commonly confused homophones. I'd like
to compile a more comprehensive list, however.

I've got a copy of Evan Antworth's list of homophones from Standard
English, but I'd like to supplement this with homophones in dialects of
English. I am particularly interested in Mid-Atlantic and Southern
dialects.

Thanks in advance--

Suzanne Cadwell

Subject: Strike Outs

Hey Baseball Fans!

Anyone out there know where 'K' as a shorthand for 'strike-out' comes from???
Nomo-mania is big in Japan and I've had two different people ask me when
they find out that I do linguistics. Help!!
