Message 1: Yue

Subject: Yue


In ancient China (500 BC to 500 AD), the indigenous peoples of the
southeast were known collectively as Yue*, and had their own language,
presumably some non-CHinese language in the Sino-Tibetan family. Does
anyone know of any studies of ancient Yue, and what branch of
Sino-Tibetan it might have belonged to?

* Yue as in "to cross over"; not the yue for Cantonese.

Subject: Q: Floating Quantifiers



I would appreciate references to floating quantifiers in English (or
any other languages that has them). Am interested both in data and
theoretical accounts of them. Thanks

Dear linguists,

I am interested in attaining a TESOL certificate (or any other such 
pedagogical qualifications offered in the U.S.) within the next year, 
but have had trouble finding courses offered this summer in my area 
(Oregon-- Portland, Salem and Newport). I would greatly appreciate any 
information on such courses for teaching English as a foreign or second 
language, for example, a list of colleges or possible correspondence work.
Also, I've been informed that there is a TESOL and TOEFL newsletter 
(joint-venture?) Could I get the address?

Please respond to me at h130640stud.u-szeged.hu

Sincerely,

Crystal Elinski

Subject: Misc. queries


I have several queries that stem from students in an undergraduate
linguistics class. They will do library searches, but I am interested
in anyone who is aware of unusual materials or websites they could
visit.

(1) Lists of British/American dialect differences, esp. in syntax/morphology
(2) IPA teaching packages with _sound_
(3) Studies of the phonation of singers/poets who use multiple levels of
pitch, such as the Tuvan singers
(4) Why do singers from various English-speaking countries seem to lose
their regional accent when they sing?

Please reply directly to me, and I will forward your reply to the
appropriate student. Thanks.
