Subject: Yan Fu's principles

Dear Sir\Dear Madame,

 I am an Italian transalator. M languages are Chinese and Russian.
 I am interested in the theory of translation (fanyi lilun). I would
like to study Yan Fu and his principles "XIN, DA, YA". Where can I
find materials? Is there anything about Yan Fu in internet?

Thank you for attention. Xiexie ni de bangzhu

	I have been unable to access this article (authors: Dainora &
Hemphill). I called Cambridge University Press and they do not have
anything from the FIFTH CONFERENCE ON LABORATORY PHONOLOGY. Can you
give me any information? Thank you in advance for any assistance that
you might be able to provide. Sandra Levey

Message 3: Course on the social history of languages/query

Subject: Course on the social history of languages/query

I plan to teach a seminar on the social history of languages for upper
level undergraduates. I am looking for books (and articles) that
discuss the administrative, religious, and educational use of
languages like Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, Sanskrit. The course will
emphasize classical languages, but I will include also French and
English (e.g. Dick Leith's A social history of English works well for
undergraduates, and also Peter Burke's articles). I am not interested
in works that are purely on historical linguistic changes.

If you have taught a similar course, I'd like to get a copy of your
syllabus, or if you know of books and articles on these topics, I
would very much appreciate hearing from you (haerijhu.edu). Thanks.
