Subject: Sociolinguistics in Chile

Hello,

I'm planning to do the fieldwork for my thesis in Spanish linguistics
in Chile, so I would be happy to know:

1. If you know about any sociolinguistic research in Chile?

2. If you know about any research dealing with the use of euphemisms
and taboo words?

3. If you know about any research with only women as informants?

Thanks,

Eli-Marie Drange

(I am posting this for a colleague who is not on the list. Please reply
directly to him, and he will post a summary to the list if interest
warrants it. Thanks, Dilworth B. Parkinson)

I am a history instructor at Brigham Young University interested in
the most recent positions concerning the origin of language. I have
run across a book by Merritt Ruhlen, The Origin of Language: Tracing
the Evolution of the Mother Tongue (New York: John Wiley and Sons,
1994). I would like to know any opinions concerning this book and
would appreciate any other sources on the topic. Furthermore, anyone
who has the time to give their own theories on the matter is welcome
to do so. Thank you. Eric Tuten eetutenaol.com

Subject: Italian conversation

I'd be grateful for help in compiling a bibliography of work on (1)
conversational analysis of Italian, (2) the use of Italian in
educational contexts, (3) questions in Italian.

"Italian" in each case means the Italian of native speakers speaking
to other native speakers.
