Dear colleagues,
	I'm working in the library of my institute, and I need to complete
the list of periodic publication. Would you please send me information about
the publications of phonetics or phonology of Korea, India, and other asiatic
countries, and the publications of Russia, Hungary, and other countries of
 Eastern Europe. Thanks you in advance.

Message 3: Kikongo

Date: Fri, 19 Jan 1996 13:54:41 -0100
From: Mikael Parkvall <parkvallling.su.se>
Subject: Kikongo
In Kikongo, there is an auxiliary "kala" which indicates the progressiveness of
 an
action. However, its usage seems to be possible with past time reference only.
I understand Kikongo has a several centuries long tradition as a written
 language;
are there any indications that "kala" has ever been used as a present
 progressive?

From: TONY HALL <HALLARnovell1.bham.ac.uk>
Subject: Contacts required
I am currently carrying out a long-term survey of "numeral usage" in
the Balto-Slavonic languages and need contacts with native speakers
of the following languages:

 BULGARIAN
 MACEDONIAN
 SLOVENE
 SORBIAN (Upper- and Lower-)

On a different matter: can anyone advise me of suitable teaching
material (grammar books, audio cassettes, etc.) for teaching the
LATVIAN language to undergraduate students.

If anyone can help, please contact me directly at: a.r.hallbham.ac.uk
