[This message is regarding Issue #7.70, Queries on Invited Inferences.]

If there is still time and anything can be done about it: the
zip code at the end of the query I sent earlier today shoud be:
75005 and NOT 75013.

Sorry about this!

Message 2: QS: More turkeys...

Subject: QS: More turkeys...

Hi every one
	A few days ago I asked how was the bird turkey named in different 
languages. I received a lot of exaples of IE languages and I thank all of 
you who have answered. My question is: What is it called in non IE 
languages? and what would the etymology be (if it is available, of 
course). I Would be mostly interested in languages from India and Turkey, 
just to know how they relate to the bird (although i am pretty sure that 
it would be something close to "turkey" in India).

	I received many answers the first few days, but if you have 
already answered and want to add something, don't be shy...
