I am happy to report that the server problems associated with my
electronic journal of language and law, "Language in the Judicial
Process," have been resolved. The URL <>; now gives
full access to the current issue (issue 2.4, online today) and all back

Because of the nature of the server problems, issue 2.4 contains fewer

Thank you for your helpful posts re access problems and for your

Best regards,
Bethany Dumas

Subject: Magnetic Phonetics

New for 1997 from Cascadilla Press: Magnetic Phonetics.

Magnetic Phonetics is a set of almost 300 magnetic tiles with all of the
IPA symbols on them, including tiles for diacritics. The tiles stick to
refrigerators and metal file cabinets. Magnetic Phonetics also contains
120 tiles oriented towards broad transcription of English, with a score on
each tile. This set can be used to play IPA Crossword on a tabletop or a
magnetic surface. We include a rules guide and copies of the current IPA
chart with each set.

For details, go to or send
e-mail to Note: the tiles are small, and are not
for use by linguists under the age of 4.
