Message 1: beta testers for phonology font

Subject: beta testers for phonology font
Cascadilla Press has completed initial development and testing of a
font for phonological structures, and we're looking for a few
Macintosh users who are willing to beta test the font and tell us how
well it works. All you need is a Mac running System 6 with TrueType
or any version of System 7, and a printer.

Moraic (the font) contains pieces for connecting adjacent levels of
phonological structure with solid lines, dashed lines, and
dissociation lines (solid lines with two slashes through them). It is
not designed for connecting non-adjacent levels of structure.

If testing goes well, we will soon have a final version of Moraic for
both Macintosh and Windows. If you would be willing to test the font,
please send me an e-mail note directly at If
you would like to receive an announcement when we have a final version
of the font, please send an e-mail note to

Subject: Web queries
Dear Linguists,

I am preparing an MA dissertation on Web publishing and Language
Resources on the Internet. These are my two queries:

1. I need information regarding Web publishing policies in higher
education institutions, i.e. who can publish what, and under what
guidelines -if any-, and also who maintains those pages, etc.

2. useful Web addresses for Spanish language teaching & learning

I'll post back a summary of responses.
