Subject: audiovisual materials


Our linguistics program has a small amount of money budgeted for the
purchase of film/software/other audiovisual materials to be used in
our classes.

We already have:

The Story of English (PBS)
The Human language series (by Searchinger)
American Tongues & Yeah, you right
NOVA episodes: Genie, Can chimps talk?, The search for the first

We'd be grateful for suggestions of other audiovisual materials that
you have found useful in your classes.

Message 2: Multilingual lexical processing

Subject: Multilingual lexical processing

I'm a Master's candidate at Ohio University and I'm beginng my thesis.
I've seen a lot of information on studies done about Bilingual lexical
processing, but absolutely NOTHING on the Multilingual lexicon.

If anyone has any information (tips on where to look, who might be
doing this sort of research, etc.) I would greatly appreciate it.

Also - if anyone is interested in reading my proposal, I will gladly
forward it to you in hopes of getting feedback.

Howdy. My name is Trevor and I would like to ask your opinion on an
aspect of research technology (The Net).

I am doing some work on the use of internet as a tool in language
research and linguistics in general. Thus far I have managed to get
some feedback on some general advantages and disadvantages of the Net,
email, etc.. But I am interested in hearing some more specific
feedback from fellow colleagues in the field.

Are they any aspects of Net technology that you tend use more than
others? Are they there any that you steer clear of? Why do you find
some more useful/practical than others in your particular field? What
are you frustrations with the present technologies? Do know of any
websites that address these,or similar, issues?

If you have any thoughts on any of these matters, I would be delighted
to hear from you.

I look forward to hearing from you.
