Subject: Query:T. Crowley et al
Hello, Everybody!

We at Massey are thinking of adopting Terry Crowley et al's book,
THE DESIGN OF LANGUAGE. AN INTRODUCTION OF DESCRIPTIVE
LINGUISTICS. Longman. 1995 as our new Linguistics textbook for
undergraduate students. We would appreciate it very much if people out
there, who have had an opportunity to use the above textbook --either
as an intro to phonetics/phonology or syntax/semantics text-- could
tell us a bit about their experiences and give comments.

With all our thanks and appreciation.

Message 2: English vowels

Subject: English vowels
- [ From: Eugene Baer * EMC.Ver #2.5.02 ] --

Hello,

I teach an introductory graduate course in linguistics and am looking
for a good chart or some other visual that gives a clear and concise
presentation of changes in English vowel sounds beginning with the Old
English sounds and continuing with both Middle English and Modern
English and including special focus on the Great Vowel Shift. I have
seen visuals that include partial information but none providing a
complete view of vowel sounds arranged by place of articulation. Does
such a visual exist? My expertise is in rhetoric and composition, but
at a small liberal arts college one teaches outside one's
expertise. Thus, while I am comfortable teaching introductory level
linguistics, I am not familiar with the range of texts and materials
that might be available. I look forward to your assistance. Eugene
Baer

Subject: importance of orthographic information in the reading process

Hi, I am a student at Bishop's University in Lennoxville Quebec. I am
writing on the topic in the subject bar and was wondering if you could
send me any information on the subject or tell me where I might find
more information on the subject. Thank-you for your time.
