Message 1: Slow Speech Phenomena

From: Bill Fisher <billfjaguar.ncsl.nist.gov>
Subject: Slow Speech Phenomena
Linguists -

 I want to make a point in a paper that slow speech
as well as fast speech differs phonetically from normal
speech. I know of a lot of publications on fast speech
phenomena, but not on slow speech. Can anyone help
me with a few good references?

Message 2: Sicilian and Venetian dialects

Subject: Sicilian and Venetian dialects
I am looking for materials abut Sicilian and Venetian dialects for a relative
who is writing a thesis on them. I would be glad to receive email messages
about materials available. It might be even more helpful if you can send
photocopied materials directly to the following address, since this would save
time (the thesis is due in June):

Catalina Preotu
str. sf. Lazar,nr.2, Bloc M.Kogalniceanu, et.3, ap.13
IASI-6600, ROMANIA

Thanks for any help you can provide. I will provide a summary of responses
received.

Message 3: nucleus placement

Date: Sun, 11 Feb 1996 17:35:15 MST
From: "graciela moyano" <gracemeinstein.com.ar>
Subject: nucleus placement
I am a teacher of English phonology in Argentina. I teach the subject
to prospective teachers of English at primary and secondary school
level.
I find the subject of nucleus placement and broad/narrow focus very
difficult to teach because of the differences between the L1 and the
L2. Can anyone suggest successful ways of getting this across along with
useful bibliography? I promise to sum up the material for the list.

Cordially,
Graciela C. Moyano
