INDIANA UNIVERSITY LINGUISTICS CLUB PUBLICATIONS: TWO CLASSICS REISSUED

PHONOLOGY

Wilbur, Ronnie. THE PHONOLOGY OF REDUPLICATION.
	Since the appearance of this work in 1973, it has had
continual theoretical significance. Wilbur documents cases of under-
and over-application of rules to reduplicative forms and the problems
they present for rule ordering. She foreshadows current work in
Optimality Theory by rejecting rule ordering and developing a notion
akin to reduplicative Base-Reduplicant identity. This work played an
important role in the rule ordering debates of the 1970s, in the
development of reduplication theory within Prosodic Morphology during
the 1980s, and currently provides insights to the emerging
Correspondence Theory. Copies are *limited*.
	Special reissue price: $6.50

HUMOR

Tiersma, Peter M. LANGUAGE-BASED HUMOR IN THE MARX BROTHERS FILMS
	Tiersma's popular essay is an excellent introduction to
linguistic analysis of humor. Using lexical semantics and pragmatics,
he gives a sound, yet lively, analysis of specific examples. Great
resource for introductory linguistics courses, and a good read.
	Price: $4.00
