 If you would be so kind, please address my questions below:

 1) I conduct a choir and we are singing a song that uses the
Kurpian dialect (eg, "chtoz" as [xtus] rather than 'htooSH'). I would
like to be faithful in its pronunciation. Can you direct me to someone
who can provide me with the proper IPA for this text?

 2) I am familiar with IPA for the standard languages of opera,
but I would like to know the standard symbols for Polish. Where can I
find the symbols particular to the language?

 Thank you. Any help will be much appreciated.

 Sincerely,

 Dayle Vander Sande

Subject: Faroese


I'm looking for references for Faroese (besides that of Lockwood
1955). I am also interested in discussing aspects of the
phonological/morphological system of Faroese with a native speaker of
the language, or someone who has significant familiarity with the
language.

Thank you in advance,
