I have now included on my personal web page the bibliography of resources
whiH I have collated so far. The present list only includes information
sent to me from members of the linguist list, but will be updated with my
own findings as my project progresses. A text-only version is also
available at this site. Thankyou to everyone who wrote.

The February 1997 Conference list is now available at

Due to the theft of my computer over the Christmas holiday period, I have
had to reconstruct the conference list from bits and pieces. Apologies to
those who submitted conference information which doesn't appear.

While I have a tape back-up system, the kind souls also took the tapes...

Anyway, we're back in business, and I hope that there aren't too many
errors in the list. Please contact me with any corrections or additions.
