I would like to get in touch with someone who is familiar with the
Mundari language (a Munda language spoken around Calcutta) for some
research on verb agreement with coordinated noun phrases. Thank you!

Subject: English unstressed <them>

I am seeking evidence of sociolinguistic/phonetic analysis of the
unstressed <them> of English. This will not be the paper I have in
mind but a necessary preliminary to it. Any facts much appreciated.

Regards
Bill Bennett.

Subject: "Slips of the tongue"

I am a post graduate student doing a paper on slips of the tongue. I
am collecting samples of errors. I would greatly appreciate any
materials pertaining to this subject. If possible I would also like
to collect samples from individuals on the net. All that needs to be
included is the speech error and the context in which it occurred.
Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your
help. Please send any responses to me at this address.
