Subject: Mood Phrase

Hello -

I am looking for any references on the category Mood Phrase. I was told that
it was proposed some years ago, but so far I have found nothing published
in the GB literature. I would be most appreciative of help in tracking down
whatever exists in print on this.
Many Thanks!

Message 2: Serbian Phonetics

Subject: Serbian Phonetics

Dear fellow LINGUIST participants,

Is there anybody out there who could help me with any information on 
the current research in the segmental phonology and acoustics 
phonetics of the Serbian language? Actually, anything from the 
sixties on will be fine. I am particularly interested in vowels, 
especially their formant structure, and the correlation of their 
acoustics and articulation. Thank you all in advance, with 
appologies for cross-posting.

Dear Linguists,

A friend of mine is going to make a comparison between Zellig S. Harriss
and Bloomfield with regards to their methodologies of language research. 
He would like to have some comments from you. He has also promised to
post a summary.

Thank you in advance.
Best regards.
