Subject: consonants
My thanks to those who have replied (and those who hopefully still
will!) to my question regarding like consonants separated by a written
but unpronounced vowel. I am planning to post a summary within the
next few days. In the meantime, I have here a partial list of the
names I pulled off the US census list of 80,000 surnames which qualify
in terms of orthography but perhaps not in terms of pronunciation. I
know for sure that some of these names don't qualify because both
consonants are pronounced. I think it has something to do with being
in an unstressed syllable in Spanish and certain other languages. If
anyone knows of names from these list or from elsewhere that do
qualify with what I'm looking for (written but unpronounced vowel
between two like consonants) please let me know and I'll include this
info in my summary. Thanks again,

Subject: Forensic Linguistics programs

I am looking for universities that offer PhD programs in Forensic
linguistics and/or Linguistics and the Law. I would like to receive
this information directly and I will subsequently post a summary of
the list with URLs (if available). Thanks!

Subject: Who are interested in the fuzziness in natural language?

To those who are concerned over the fuzzy phenomena in natural
languages:
	I am a teacher of English as a foreign language in
China. Right now I am a visiting scholar at a university in the
States. It is my sincere hope that I can get into touch with some
linguists who are interested in fuzzy linguistics or have done some
work in this aspect.
	Good Luck!

Message 4: Q: Sources for Vegliote

Date: Sun, 08 Sep 1996 20:24:47 EDT
From: kmb19cornell.edu <kmb19cornell.edu>
Subject: Q: Sources for Vegliote
I am looking for the names of any sources (or good books) on Vegliote
(also known as Dalmatian) other than Matteo Baroli's <<Das
Dalmatische>>, as all the books I've found so far mention that book as
their only origional source in the langauge.

I'm wondering if this is the only origional source which survives to
this day.

I also read a reference to manuscripts from the city of Zala written
in Vegliote, and would like more information, if anyone has it.

Thanks in advance.
