Subject: Q:Yucatecan Reduplication

 Dear Linguists,

in a grammar of 1921 I found a really small set of data on
reduplication in Yucatecan (a Maya language spoken in the south-east
of Mexico). Now I am searching for literature on that phenomenon in
this language and/or more data.

If you have any hint for me or are a native speaker of this language
please reply to

 kraemersapir.ling.uni-duesseldorf.de

Thanks a lot in advance

Martin

Subject: buzz word list vs argot vs jargon -- am i missing something?

 in prior communication, i asked if there was a term of art for
a short list of words ["buzz word list"] that allows one to converse
with people in a specialized line of work, or with specialized
interests. thanks for all the helpful answers and suggestions.
 it's a given that we are all speaking the same language --
english, french, whatever. i believe that "argot" and "jargon" refers
more to the variants in language from region to region. what i'm
talking about is a list of words and phrases that makes it possible
for a 3rd grade teacher to converse with a broker or dealer from the
Chicago Board Options Exchange.
 if there is no term of art, or if i'm defining something that's not
real, i'd love to hear your ideas.
 thanks,
 caroline
