Message 1: books/articles on analysis of political discourse?

Subject: books/articles on analysis of political discourse?

 I have a graduate student who is investigating the nature of
political discourse in Newark's recent elections. She will be
analyzing the text of each of the contenders' political literature and
speeches published in the local newspaper. I would be very grateful
for any information on textbooks/articles on political discourse.
This is a fascinating topic, but new for me.

Thanks!

Message 2: Q: Naming/Discriminatory Language

From: Elena Tapia <tapiaeecsuc.ctstateu.edu>
Subject: Q: Naming/Discriminatory Language

For our university's Community Day, I have been asked to do a workshop for
students and faculty on "naming" and "discriminatory language." I have been
asked to do this essentially because I am the linguist on campus. (Naming
and hate language are not in my area of specialization.) I would appreciate
any recommendations on sources for such a topic from fellow linguists. I
will post a summary. Thank you in advance.

Subject: Friedrich book

 On behalf of a LINGUIST-less colleague, I'm trying to locate a copy of
 the following out-of-print book that someone would be willing to sell:

 Friedrich, Paul. 1971. The Tarascan Suffixes of Locative Space:
 Meaning and Morphotactics. (Voegelin, C.F., ed., Language Science
 Monographs, vol. 9). Bloomington, Indiana University Publications.

 Please reply directly to me. Thanks.
