Subject: New listserv re:bilingualism & bilingual education

Announcing a new listserv: 
BILING,
Forum for Discussion of Research on Bilingualism
and Bilingual Education

The list will serve as a forum for the discussion of research on the
linguistic, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic, psychological, neurological,
and related issues which emerge from bilingual or multilingual language
contact, as well as discussion of research on issues in curriculum,
pedagogy, and policy as they relate to bilingual or multilingual populations.

The listserv is run by the Center for Bilingual Education and Research of
the Arizona State University, and is the official listserv of the Bilingual
SIG of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). It is
"co-owned" by Josu\233 Gonz\225lez (<josueasu.edu>) of Arizona State University,
Jeff MacSwan (<macswanucla.edu>) of UCLA, and Toni Griego-Jones of the
University of Arizona.

To join the BILING Listserv, send an email note to listservasu.edu and
make the one-line contents read as follows: 

	sub biling first-name last-name

For example, 

	sub biling Juan Lopez

If you have trouble getting on, send email to Jeff MacSwan at
<macswanucla.edu> or Josu\233 Gonz\225lez at <josueasu.edu>.

I have looked at creaky voice spectrograms. Formant structure is not
affected. Both wide and narrow band spectrograms show a pattern related to
frequency of vibration, a lower frequency with creaky voice. On narrow
band this shows clearly as lines further apart and sometimes broken, or
avrying in strength (intensity) at certain frequencies. Formant structure
for vowels are the same as with non-creaky, and can be recognized just as
easily.
