Subject: Comprehension/communication - book suggestions?
Dear everyone,

Any help you can provide with the following would be very gratefully
received. I've had a request from a second year doctoral student in
Iraq for references to books in the following areas - I don't really
work in these areas of linguistics myself (and the range does seem
rather broad) - does anyone know of good textbooks in:

comprehension, communication theory, sense and meaning,
intelligibility, encoding.

If anyone knows of a good basic text book that covers most of these,
even better.

Thanks in advance - please contact me directly: s.goodmanopen.ac.uk

Dear Linguisters, 

does anybody know if there is an electronic version of the Bible on
the net available for queries, etc. Or a site of Biblical studies?

I promise to post a summary. 

Thank you very much.

Message 3: HTML for Middle English "yogh"

From: Mark Davies <mdaviesrs6000.cmp.ilstu.edu>
Subject: HTML for Middle English "yogh"

I'm putting together a polyglot version of the Gospel of Luke,
containing Old, Middle, and Modern English. The one character that
I'm having problems with is the Middle English "yogh". I know the
HTML code is &y; or &yogh;, but I'm finding that although Netscape can
correctly display the eth, thorn, etc., it can't do the yogh.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
