Message 1: help with a Gumperz reference

Subject: help with a Gumperz reference

I found the following reference in Gumperz's latest book on linguistic
relativity, and I wonder if anyone has it or knows where I can get a
copy. It looks like a bear to track down...

Brown, P., and Levinson, SC (1993) Linguistic and non-linguistic
coding of spatial arrays: explorations in Mayan cognition. Working
Paper No. 24. Nijmegen: Cognitive Anthropology Research Group


Thanks

PS: If you are willing to send me a copy, I'll gladly pay for
copying/mailing costs

I'm looking for references on applications of Optimality Theory to the
analysis of interlanguage, particularly in phonology.

Subject: Interdisciplinary MA Programs in Linguistics


Our university is in the planning stages of an interdisciplinary MA
program in Linguistics, with varying tracks. I would greatly
appreciate information about other interdisciplinary MA programs at
other universities, as well as information about linguistics
departments that began as interdisciplinary MA programs. Please
respond to my address below. I will post a summary to the list.
Thanks for your help!
