Message 1: W.V.O. Quine questions

Date: Wed, 19 Feb 1997 20:21:19 -0500 (EST)
From: Scott Stirling <scstirlianselm.edu>
Subject: W.V.O. Quine questions

	W.V.O. Quine is scheduled to visit our college philosophy club in 
March. He has asked us to prepare questions for him beforehand. Does 
anyone have any interesting questions they would like to ask? We don't 
have that many students here who are really interested in this guy (or 
philosophy in general) so I, as a student, am looking for some outside input.

	This is a rare opportunity for us to pick Quine's brain about 
things like indeterminacy of translation and his pragmatic theory of truth.

Subject: Teaching Vocabulary to Advanced Students of English

My friend is a teacher at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland.

He is working on a project mentioned in the subject of this message,
and he would really appreciate any help and suggestions from any
foreign teacher, professor or whoever interested and skilled in the
subject. If you have any experience in teaching vocabulary and would
like to share your opinions, hints, or ways of teaching, he would be
really grateful. As he is a person of no account ;-) please send all
comments to my account

Thanks in advance,

Maciej

Message 3: Portuguese word lists.

Subject: Portuguese word lists.

Does anyone know of any reasonable large bilingual word lists for
English-Portuguese or Spanish-Portuguese? (By 'reasonably large' I
mean in the order of thousands of entries.)

Thank you,

Davide Turcato
