Subject: Gay ling.


Can anyone send me some bibliographic references on queer linguistics
or language and homosexuality, gay and lesbian? I want to incorporate
some stuff on this in a Lg. and gender course. I have found very
little on both the web and in library searches:

Beyond the lavender lexicon : authenticity, imagination, and
appropriation in lesbian and gay languages / edited by William
L. Leap. [Amsterdam?] : Gordon and Breach, c1995.

Leap, William. Word's out : gay men's English / William L. Leap.
Minneapolis, Minn. :University of Minnesota Press, c1996.

Max, H. Gay(s) language : a dic(k)tionary of gay slang / H. Max. 1st
ed. Austin,Tex. (No. 231, P.O. Box 33280, Austin 78764) : Banned
Books, c1988.

I suspect there must be more out there. I will summarize for the list.

Thanks!

Subject: Q: Anyone working on Limbu


I have been doing some theoretical work on Limbu grammar and have been
largely relying on two excellent grammars and the references therein.
The first grammar is by Georg van Driem and the other by A. Weidert
and B. Subba. I would be interested in knowing if there is anyone else
out there currently doing work on these languages or if there are any
recent publications I should include in my research. Thanks in
advance for your help.

Sincerely,
Matthew Richardson

A colleague of mine in the department is trying to put together a list
of books that his students can write reviews on, books that have
language as their major theme, or general lingusitics books aimed at
the general public, like Tannen's. Do you have any suggestions? I
remember seeing some discussion like this last year or the year
before, but don't recall any specific titles. Thanks for your help.
