Subject: Renaissance Linguistics Archive

Dear reader,

We would like to introduce ourselves as the editors of the Renaissance
Linguistics Archive ( R L A), which is a bibliographic publication
that comprises all articles about linguistic thinking in the period
between 1350 and 1700. So far three volumes have been published. With
your help we hope to continue our work. Your co-operation will be the
basis for our publication of the data. You are kindly asked to
register the data in forms and we are going to compile them for the
publication.In future times there will be one novelty. The R L A will
no longer be published in a printed form but in the form of a data
bank. In this way we hope to address a larger readership and first of
all to allow them quicker access to the information. We would like to
ask you to inform us whether you are interested in a participation in
this project. In this case you would receive further information on
the procedure of the data collection. Please send your answer to or to Universit t Potsdam Institut f r
Romanistik Christine Damis PF 60 15 53 14415 Potsdam Germany

Subject: Dictionary of the Frisian Language

Since 1984 the Fryske Akademy in Ljouwert/Leeuwarden (NL) has
published one volume of the Dictionary of the Frisian Language
('Wurdboek fan de Fryske Taal') every year. So 12 volumes have been
published sofar. The dictionary is comparable to the 'Woordenboek der
Nederlandsche Taal' or the German Grimm- dictionary. It offers a
thorough description (in Dutch) of the West-Frisian language from 1800
onwards and is a solid reference work for anyone dealing with Frisian
lexicology, morphology or dialectology.

To enable people who might be interested to subscribe to the series,
which will be finished around 2008, the Fryske Akademy has a special

If you would like to know more about the dictionary and the
arrangement, please e-mail to Arjen Versloot: and
we will send you some more detailed information.
