Message 1: French/English Trans

Subject: French/English Trans

I am curreently looking for different English translations of
contemporary French novels. They should be done by different people (not
re-edittings. Any titles in mind (best of all if the translators are
from the same country- whichever)) ? 

Thank you.

Message 2: Help with Japanese Linguistics?

Subject: Help with Japanese Linguistics?

 I am going to try to look at the processing of speech between
bilinguals that may contain code-switched items with the hope of
saying something about the mental organization of bilingual lexicons.
 I want to use a lexical decision task, so I'll need to
construct nonsense words in English and Japanese. How can I determine
which constructed words are Japanese pseudowords?
 Can anyone recommend introductory readings in Japanese syntax,
phonology, and/or prosody?
 Does anyone have any general advice?

Thank you,
Sally Davis
