Subject: Multi-query by Polish Students

I'm posting this query on a behalf of my friends who are writing their
MA theses. Following I include the subjects and the authors of the
respective works. In case of Ewa Spiska it's possible to contact her in
person. Our university doesn't provide us with Internet access thus I
function as a kind of host-mailbox. Should anybody have on the subjects
mentioned below and/or want to get in touch with those people I will be
glad to pass the mail to them.
Please excuse me for the impreciseness of the subjects (I lost the paper
with the real subjects) but I will soon post a very detailed description
of each of them.
===========
1) Oktawia Pabich-Poledzka: Ways of expressing negation in Polish and
 English.
2) Ewa Spisak <evspisakpolbox.com>: Student Slang in Polish and
 English. Neologisms as a Source of Expressive Word-Formation
 Processes.
3) Anna Pasikowska: Negotiations in Polish and English
4) Mariusz Kamrowski: Euphemisms. Sexual metaphors
5) Barbara Mista: Language Redundancy
6) Dorota Rut: Speech Acts.
7) Katarzyna Kurkowska: English of Polish Americans.
8) Margita Walasek: Sexist Language.
9) Joanna Stadnik: English for Specific Purposes. English and Polish in
 Medicine.
10)Michal Lisecki <mliseckipriv2.onet.pl>: An Interdisciplinary
 Study of Computer-Mediated Communication. The Language of the
 Internet/email, irc, MOOs/

If you think you can contribute in any way to the work of my friends
please get in touch with me. Any suggestions as to the resources and the
work itself are welcomed.

Subject: The Language of the Internet; cmc studies


Some time ago I have posted my query about. Well, the feedback I got
didn't help much therefore I am doing it once again.
I am writing an MA thesis under the subject : An Interdisciplinary Study
of the Computer-Mediated Communication. The Language of the Internet on
the basis of the selected services /email, irc, moos/"
I have done a lot so far but even more is yet to come. The thesis grew
too big :(
I would like to get in touch with anybody writing on the same/similar
subject. Anybody interested in the topic is also welcome to get in touch
with me.

Message 3: Sociologist's Opinion Needed

From: Mike FOX-ecki <mliseckifriko2.onet.pl>
Subject: Sociologist's Opinion Needed

On a behalf of my friend I would like to ask for a professional opinion
about a questionnaire for her MA thesis. The questionnaire is to check what
kind of forms are used by the English speakers in order to express their
attitude towards the other person (ex. when asking for help).
The problem she is facing is setting appropriate age-criteria in the
questionnaire - i.e. what kind of division should be made as far as the
age groups are concerned in that kind of questionnaire.
At the same time, feel free to fill out the questionnaire and in this
way contribute directly to the work of my friend.
As I did not want to send all the questionnaire those willing to contribute
please send a message at mliseckikki.net.pl with "ques" in a subject field.
Please send any comments at: magurabox43.gnet.pl
