Message 1: Canadian English WWW site

Subject: Canadian English WWW site

Last month I announced on LINGUIST a web page for Canadian raising
(/ay, aw/ --> [vy, vw] / __ voiceless obstruents). Several people who
visited the site reported that their web browsers had trouble with the
audio files, and so I apologize to anyone who was inconvenienced.

I'm pleased to announce that I've since installed on the page much
smaller and, I hope, browser-friendlier audio files. The URL remains:

 http://web.mit.edu/troberts/www/raising.html

There are also some new audio files that illustrate other aspects of
Canadian English, which I hope you'll enjoy.
