Dear Linguists
I am trying to remember the meaning and source of the acronym NICE
referring to properties of English auxiliary verbs. Thank you in
advance

Subject: Multiple Personality and Dialect/Language Variation

I am seeking items, published or unpublished, on research into
variation in language (at the level of dialect of language) as used by
different "personalities" of a "multiple." I'll be glad to summarize
to the list.

Thanks,
Bethany Dumas

Message 3: Repertoires of European Letters: Draft Four

Subject: Repertoires of European Letters: Draft Four

The fourth draft of TC304/WG2 Project 11, "Repertoires of characters
used for writing the indigenous languages of Europe", a draft European
Technical Report, is now available for public review. The
participation of experts is very important to this project.

http://www.indigo.ie/egt/standards/tc304wg2/p11/p11.html

This is a LARGE HTML document, as all the repertoires are gifs. I
think it's about a megabyte in size. Set your browser's memory
high. Printed out on A4 the document is about 40 pages.

Cc:ing this to Linguist and other forums. (Actually, I'm, Bcc:ing to
prevent a plethora of Reply-to:s from proliferating over the net.)

Comment (to eversonindigo.ie) is invited. Guidelines for comments:
please don't flame me for getting your language wrong, I am only
human, and there are more than 150 languages in this DRAFT
report. What I do need is:

1) accurate data on the repertoire and sorting used (for languages for
which I have no data, such as Sardinian or Pomak)

2) confirming sources for languages for which I have data but have not
given a source (such as for Basque or Faroese)

3) accurate data (with source) for populations

I really need this material in hardcopy if possible; it can be sent to
me at one of the addresses in my signature. But you should e-mail me
about anything you are going to send.

If your language is OK, I don't need to know. Qui tacit consentire
(who is silent gives consent). Have mercy on my mailbox.

Best regards,
