Subject: Hindi texts

I have been searching for quite some time and with very sparse results for
electronic texts/corpora in modern South Asian languages, particularly
Hindi or Urdu. Do any members of the list know of any such texts?
Alternatively, can anyone suggest where to look further. Thank you.

Message 3: Cakchique language work?

Subject: Cakchique language work?

Hello,

We have a student in the Swarthmore linguistics department who's interested
in doing work on the Cakchique language of Guatemala. He's a sophomore and
has spent some time in Guatemala, and he's interested in meeting up with a
linguist currently working on Cakchique who might need a research assistant
for the summer of 1999.

If you can be of some assistance, please email Stephanie Strassel,
sstrass1swarthmore.edu or Donna Jo Napoli, dnapoli1swarthmore.edu.

Thank you!

Subject: SITE(S) FOR LINGUISTICS

Hello,
 My students in Linguistics have now access to the WEB and they 
want to know whether there are any sites where they can query and get
answers or further information/readings. Something similar exists in
the sciences where there are specific web-sites, say for Quantum Physics
or Fractals and Chaos Maths.
 I promise to pst a summary, if sufficient answers are received.
 Thanks in advance,

Raymond
