Subject: Word Varieties - A Dialect Survey


I am looking for 20-30 people from countries around the world who
speak English as their first language, have lived in or around their
home town/city for 15 or more years and are interested in taking part
in a Dialect Survey.

IF THIS INTERESTS YOU, PLEASE READ ON

I want to E-MAIL a questionnaire directly to you which will contain a
small number of questions relating to word usage.

This project is part of a larger survey currently underway here at the
University of Sheffield and all the findings will go into an archive.

There is a limit to the number of people who can be included in the
survey, so please register your interest as soon as possible.

Subject: New NSF Competition for Science and Technology Centers


The U.S. National Science Foundation has announced a new competition
during 1998, for funding for a new group of Science and Technology
Centers.

The current set of NSF Science and Technology Centers were established
in two competitions in 1989 and 1991. One of the current Centers is
the NSF Science and Technology Center for Research in Cognitive
Science at the University of Pennsylvania.

All fields of science and technology supported by the National Science
Foundation are eligible for consideration. Eligibility is limited to
U.S. institutions.

Interested persons are encouraged to visit the World-Wide Web pages
describing the new STC competition. The URL is:

 http://www.nsf.gov/od/osti/centers/stc.htm

Letters of intent to compete are due at the National Science
Foundation by January 6, 1998.
