Subject: Is there any list of journals of linguistics?


Do you know if there is any list of journals of linguistics with current
information for subscription and for submission of papers? I expecially
want to get a list of journals in the field of pragmatics, discourse
analysis, stylistics, and of that sort. If you know the e-mail address of
the current editors of 'American Speech' and 'Language and Style', would
you please let me know?

Thanks for your help.

Message 2: Glottalic Consonants

From: Julie Ann Bailey <jabaileyacs.ucalgary.ca>
Subject: Glottalic Consonants



To all on the List,

I am doing research which involves glottalic segments and the effects on
tautosyllabic vowels when the glottalic feature (whether ejective or
implosive) of the consonant is deleted/delinked. Specifically I am
looking for syllable final ejectives/implosives in CVC syllables. When
these are simplified (e.g. when they lose their glottalic quality) for
whatever reason, how does this affect the preceding vowel: stress, tone,
pitch, quantity adjustments, etc. However, regardless of syllable
position I would be interested in getting your input as to what happens
here in those languages of the world which have glottalics. Contact
situations are also of key interest here: CVC + C-. If you work
on languages which have (or historically had) glottalic segments please
write to me directly with any comments you might have:

Thanks!

Message 3: Query: C. Lehmann 1982

From: John Johnson <kjohnsonomni.cc.purdue.edu>
Subject: Query: C. Lehmann 1982

I have been trying to track down a copy of Chistian Lehmann's 1982
monograph on Grammaticalization. Searches in various university
libraries via computer have proven fruitless. The Interlibrary loan
office at my university has not even been able to find a copy for
loan. Does anyone know of a place where I can either borrow or
purchase a copy of this work? Or is the material generally repeated
in subsequent articles (some of which I already have). I appreciate
any direction anyone can give me. Ken Johnson

Message 4: Nordic Association of Linguists

Subject: Nordic Association of Linguists
I learnt from a collegue that there is an association of
linguists working on Scandinavian languages. It is called Nordic
Association of Linguists. I would highly appreciate if anyone on
the net could tell me its address.

Message 5: Swahili informants please

Subject: Swahili informants please


To all Kiswahili speakers,

I am looking into the Swahili pronominal accessibility hierarchy and
need some native speaker judgements of a few sentences.

In English, stress affects the referents of pronouns:
Moja hugged Pili, then he hugged Tatu. (No stress, 'he' refers to Moja)
Moja hugged Pili, then HE hugged Tata. (Stress, HE refers to Pili)

As Swahili does not use stress in this way, and also has a wider range
of alternatives than English (subject and object prefixes,
demonstratives, emphatic pronouns) I am curious to see how
accessibility is manifested here.

I would be grateful for responses to the following:

Moja, Pili na Tatu ni watu; wanapendana.

1)	Moja alimkumbatia Pili, halafu alimkumbatia Tatu.
	Nani alimkumbatia Tatu? a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi

2)	Moja alimkumbatia Pili, halafu Tatu alimkumbatia.
	Tatu alimkumbatia nani? a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi

3)	Moja alimkumbatia Pili, halafu (mtu) huyu alimkumbatia Tatu.
	 " " " " ( " ) huyo " "
	 " " " " ( " ) yule " "
	 " " " " yeye " "

	Nani alimkumbatia Tatu?
		(mtu) huyu:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi
		(mtu) huyo:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi
		(mtu) yule:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi
		 yeye:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi

4)	Moja alimkumbatia Pili, halafu Tatu alimkumbatia (mtu) huyu.
	 " " " " " " ( " ) huyo.
	 " " " " " " ( " ) yule.
	 " " " " " " yeye.

	Tatu alimkumbatia nani?
		(mtu) huyu:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi
		(mtu) huyo:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi
		(mtu) yule:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi
		 yeye:	a) Moja b) Pili c) hujui d) si sahihi


Asante sana, watakaojibu,

(I shall summarise responses to all informants, and any others interested)
