Subject: indexicality - working papers

Hello. 
I'm looking for specific working papers that deal with (social) 
indexicality, iconicity and/or gesture from an anthropological perspective. 
If anyone could give me, for example, the e-mail addresses of Levinson &/or 
the Cognitive Anthropology Research Group at Nijmegen as well as any other 
possible sources. 
Thanks.

Mit einem freundlichen cheerio,
marsha chuk

Message 2: "Must" and "have(got) to"

Subject: "Must" and "have(got) to"

Dear linguists,

 I am now working on a paper on English modals. I am interested in the
semantic differences between "must" and "have(got) to". Let me ask you
some questions. Could you please tell me which modal is the most
suitable in each of the following examples?

 (1) I (must , have to , have got to) get to London. Emergency.
 (2) "I (must , have to , have got to) make a phone call," he said urgently.
 (3) I (must , have to , have got to) be at the office at nine every day.
 (4) I (must , have to , have got to) get up at 6:00 every morning and it's
 hell,man!
 (5) I (must , have to , have got to) get a new passport.
 (6) It's ridiculous that my daughter (must , has to , has got to) be home b
y ten.
 (7) I say my daughter (must , has to , has got to) be home by ten.
 (8) A: Whose handkerchief is this?
 B: It (must , has to , has got to) be hers.
 (9) A: Who is the culprit?
 B: It (must , has to , has got to) be him.
 (10) A: You look far younger than your age.
 B: You (must , have to , have got to) be joking.
 (11) A: You're always making mistakes. You're fired!
 B: You (must , have to , have got to) be joking.

 I would be very grateful if you would answer these questions. I am
looking forward to hearing from you.

 Best wishes,
 Kenji Kashino

Subject: Top 25 Applied Ling. Ph.D. programs

Dear Colleagues:

I am about to begin a research project rating Applied Linguistics/TEFL
programs here in Germany. I would like to know whether anyone is
aware of a generally accepted "top 25" list for Applied Linguistics
Ph.D. programs in the USA (which concentrate on TESL/TEFL). In
addition to a general list those responding may wish to break down
their rankings by specialty area such as SLA, Testing, Curriculum and
Instruction, CALL, etc.

For those interested, I will gladly compile the responses I receive. 

Thanks,
