Subject: Creole inquiry
Dear all,

An MA supervisee of mine is about to undertake research on the syntax of
Guadeloupe Creole. She is eager to contact JEAN BERNABE who was (and maybe
still is) at the Universite' des Antilles et de la Guyane. If anyone knows
his e-mail or snail address, please forward it/them to:

O.E.Cyrillemod-lang.salford.ac.uk

Anyone else willing to act as an informal informant or who might be able to
give helpful pointers to useful sources is also requested to get in touch.

Many thanks,

Message 2: language use in the performing arts

From: Mariana Maduell <maduellhawaii.edu>
Subject: language use in the performing arts

Is anyone else currently working on language use in the performing arts,
esp. dance? My data have previously come primarily from flamenco. I'm most
interested in making contact with anyone in the U.K. working in this area,
since I will be there for much of the summer. Does any U.K. university offer
relevant courses for this? If you are interested in exchanging ideas in this
area, please contact me before 1 July.

Information on recent publications is also very welcome, especially anything
after 1994.

Thanks,
Mariana Maduell

Hello !

I was wondering, and hoping, if anyone knows of a piece of IBM software
that will allow one to create new fonts ?

Thank you...

Message 5: Japanese informants

From: Constance Wen-hua Chang <s22032cc.ntnu.edu.tw>
Subject: Japanese informants
Dear netters,
 I'm a student doing a research on how speakers of English and of 
Japanese learn Chinese reflexives. I desperately need Japanese 
informants to judge the grammaticality of the test sentences. That'll be 
fine if the informants don't have Chinese background knowledge. I 
appreciate any response. Thanks in advance.
Best wishes,
Constance
