I'm beginning work on my diss. and am looking for any natural spoken
data from gay and/or lesbian speakers. Ideally I would like
conversations involving gay and lesbian couples, but settle for
whatever is available. Can you help me with this?

Subject: Linguistic description of ASL

Hello. I'm a doctoral student at NYU. I'm working on an article re:
ASL grammar, and am searching (with little luck so far) for a thorough
linguistic description which includes analysis of ASL syntax,
morphology, etc. I obtained your name through a list of linguistic
conferences on the internet, and hope you can refer me to such a study
(if someone has indeed produced one.) I'll very much appreciate any
help you can give. Thank you for your time.
