Subject: SALON Launch.

SALON is a restricted email list service which will start
operating from May 1, 1997. SALON is initiated, mainly run by
and run for linguistics _students_ of South Asian languages. It
is being launched on an experimental basis till July 1997 and
will be upgraded thereafter, depending on the response received
and resources available. Although our target audience is
linguistics students of South Asia, the actual emphasis will be
on discussions relevant to linguistics PG and research students
working on languages of the Indian subcontinent. Questions and
comments on all aspects of SA linguistics are, however, welcome
- ensuing discussion will of course depend on the
subscribers. Further information will be mailed to each
subscriber.

To set the ball rolling, Probal Dasgupta
<dasguptpMAGELLAN.UMontreal.CA> has agreed to be the anchor
person till mid-June '97, Amit Sood <amit.soodblueskills.com>
is the moderator. For subscribers with limited computer access,
we will email a regular digest and to people with no computer
access, we will arrange to snailmail a monthly digest. We will
fully archive all SALON material and the subscribers will be
informed in due course.

We request all Linguist List members to widely circulate/
publicise this announcement. To all those who are into SA
linguistics, to subscribe, please send Amit Sood an email at
'amit.soodblueskills.com' (without the quotes). If you wish to
receive all emails rather than only the weekly digest, please
mention this in the message. An FAQ is accessible via WWW at
<http://www.ucl.ac.uk/~uclytbh/faqsalon.htm>; 

which has further details about posting to the list.Thanks!
