Subject: Early Childhood Language Development


As a part of my class, I'm required to send a message to a Listserv
list. If anyone knows of information concerning the involvement and
influence of parents on their children's early language development,
I'd like to know of any Internet sites to try.

Thank you.

Subject: Ekstrand article

hello, all!

A student of mine is looking for an article--perhaps you can help us.
The reference is:

Ekstrand, L. (1979). "Replacing the initial period and optimum age
theories of Second language acquisition with a theory of ontogenetic
development beyond puberty" in *Educational and Psychological
Interactions* no. 69. Department of Educational and Psychological
Research, Malmo School of Education, Lund University.

Any help you can give will be appreciated.

Subject: Looking for some Arabic sociolinguists' addresses

I am helping my advisor locate some Arabic sociolinguists' names for
her edition of a book on Arabic sociolinguistics. Could anyone give us
any information of how to contact the following linguists:

T. M. Johnstone (Dosiri dialects spoken in Kuwait)

H. Palva (Studies in the dialect of the semi-nomadic Al Ngarma tribe
in Albalqa' district of Jordan)

Th. Prochaxka (The Shi'i dialects of Bahrain)

R. Webster (Notes on the dialect and way of life of the Al Wahibah
Bedouin of Oamn. BOAS 54iii, 1991 pp473-485

Thank you very much.
