Message 1: History of French

Date: Thu, 04 Apr 1996 07:25:40 EST
From: CF301cnsvax.albany.edu <CF301cnsvax.albany.edu>
Subject: History of French
Someone told me recently that a program on the history of the French language
(6 hours long? written by Claude Hagege?) recently was shown on French
TV. Does anyone know anything more about this? Is the program available
in NTSC format? And for that matter, are there any other videos out there
that pertain to the French language (excluding, of course, videos for the
teaching of French)?
Please reply to me directly; I'll post a summary if warranted.
Thanks you.

Message 2: Undergrad. Semantics and Pragmatics Research Projects

From: cwharrymailclerk.ecok.edu <cwharrymailclerk.ecok.edu>
Subject: Undergrad. Semantics and Pragmatics Research Projects
I would like to hear about any successful semantics or pragmatics
research projects that undergraduate students have done for
introductory ling. classes. I am particularly interested in
replicable projects that would have immediate relevance for students
planning to teach English on the secondary level.

Message 3: compound words

From: Susan Robinson <robinsonemunix.emich.edu>
Subject: compound words
	I am currently doing a study of compounding in various
languages, and am having problems finding information on
any typological work in this area. If anyone has any information on
works on compounding in non-Germanic languages, and particularly any
general comparative works, I would appreciate it.
	If there is interest in this topic, I will post a summary.
Thanks, in advance,
Susan Robinson

Message 4: book search

Subject: book search
The Linguist List is the resource of last resort in my search for an
out-of-print book. The book detectives have been stumped on this one. If
you are a linguist with a copy of this text languishing on your bookshelf,
would you consider selling (or even loaning) this book?

Curtiss, S. (1977) Genie: A psycholinguistic study of a modern day "wild
child." New York: Academic Press.

It is very importnat to me to have this volume in my library. Thank you in
advance for any assistance you can provide.
