Subject: Teaching material

Dear Linguists,

I hope to be teaching two courses in the new session (1997/98): (1) African
language and Culture and (2) African Language structure. I am looking for
some suggestions on how to get further materials (text, audio and video) for
the two courses. I hope to post a summary.

Thanks

Otelemate

Message 2: A Correlation of Speaking Volume and Quantity

Subject: A Correlation of Speaking Volume and Quantity

I am wondering if anyone has heard of any study done to confirm
or deny a correlation between lower volume while speaking words
that denote small quantities; and conversely, higher volume
while speaking words that denote large quantities.

If there are sufficient answers, I will repost to the
list. Thank you for your help.

Pat
