Subject: turn-taking

hello,

i am doing my ph.d from univ. of hyderabad, india. i am working on
the 'turn-taking techniques' for my thesis. i am concentrating on the
data from Telugu films - most of them being adaptations. so far i have
covered the peripheral areas to some extent ie the history of films,
film theories, theories of adaptations, telugu litt. etc. i would
like to get in touch with people working in similar fields especially
those who have written on turn-taking or conversations in general. it
will be of much help to me.

thank you.

Dear Linguists,

Many write and many say that fricative+stop clusters practically never
become affricates. This does happen though in child language:
s+t->ts. Do you know of any "adult" language that does this or
something similar?

If I get something I will share it with you.

I would be interested in receiving advice or ideas about how to
calculate MLU for Spanish. The literature is not in agreement, and
I'm finding it fairly sticky to do analyses without inflating
the MLU count. Any ideas would be appreciated. Send to:
