Message 2: non-denom. church "register"

From: Aagentry <Aagentryaol.com>
Subject: non-denom. church "register"


I posted a request for information on church "register" on 3/13 and it
was brought to my attention by Mr. Joseph Frost that it might help to
clarify what denomination of church I'm using as a reference. I am
looking for non-denominational church "register" information,
specifically "modern" christian-based churches, but not orthodox or
catholic churches.

Thanks,

Original query:
I am studying what I call *Christian Language*. It's really a
register that people speak in a church, or on a Sunday morning sermon
on the t.v. It's bleeding with metaphors and interpretations of the
Bible. I haven't been able to find any references to this register.
Any and all input will be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me.

Subject: Q's: Burma(Myanmar) language policy/planning


I am currently doing a research project on language policy/planning in
a graduate course I am taking presently. The information I am seeking
is on any sources about language policy/planning in Burma(Mynamr) that
has taken place in the 1990's.
 
 Thank you,
 Virginia Jeffries
