Dear Colleagues,

The Indiana University Linguistics Department announces the establishment
of the Fred W. Householder Memorial Fund, established to aid deserving IU
linguistics students at critical points in their studies. We feel that
this is an appropriate way to honor Fred's deep commitment to linguistic
research, both his own and that of his many students. Contributions may be
sent to the Linguistics Department, 322 Memorial Hall, Indiana University,
Bloomington, IN 47405, U.S.A. Checks should be made out to the IU
Foundation, account no. 38-AS58-01-4. Donors will be acknowledged in the
department newsletter. (If you prefer not to be listed in the newsletter,
please let us know.)

Paul Newman, Chair, Linguistics Department

Linda Schwartz, Chair, FWH Memorial Fund Committee

 Kurdish Linguistics Net

We are currently setting up a mailing list of people active or
interested in Kurdish linguistics (Kurmanji, Sorani, Zazaki,
Gorani). The idea is to form a regular correspondence network as a
forum for exchanging ideas, research observations, bibliographical
references, and data, and perhaps to organize workshops and
conferences on Kurdish Linguistics in the future.

The Kurdish Linguistics Net is not exclusively an e-mail list, so if
you are interested in joining, but do not have regular access to
e-mail, you are welcome to do so by regular mail.

A selected bibliography of recent publications on Kurdish will be made
available on the LinguistList as soon as we have completed a first
version of the Net's mailing list.

If you would like to join the Kurdish Linguistics Net, please send the
following details (those marked * are optional) - preferably by e-mail
- to the address indicated at the bottom of the page:
