Subject: ethnography and adult ESL

Fellow subscribers,

I am working on a graduate degree in ESL at Purdue Univ. I have
recently become interested in ethnography and its utility
in studying ESL program (particularly adult programs). I have
a theoretical discussion by Watson-Gegeo (1988) but have been unable
to locate any more articles or books (theoretical or actual studies
done with this methodology).

Does anyone have any refrences for this combination. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and pardon the double listing on SLART.

Subject: Updated impact index of linguistic journals

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for an updated impact index of journals on
theoretical linguistics and related fields (cognitive science, socio- and
psycholinguistics, discourse studies, etc...)
Could anybody help me with this?

Many thanks to all,

J.L.

Subject: Acquisition of punctuation

Hi,

I am researching children's acquisition of (English) punctuation and
would be most grateful if anyone could enlighten me as to any of the
following:-
1) Are there any like-minded souls out there?
2) References concerning the paraphrasing of questions, especially to
subjects who are between 5 and 8 years of age.
3) References about, and examples of, sentences which can be
disambiguated with punctuation.
4) Any interesting uses of punctuation.

Many thanks,
