Notice: Dear colleagues,

Who could put me in contact with Calvin R. Rensch, Calinda E. Hallberg, and Clare F. O'Leary? Chapters on Hindko and Gujri are needed for the volume "New Indo-Aryan Languages" in the Moscow series "Languages of the World".
Apart from these, chapters on the following languages/dialects are invited:
Languages/dialects of Western Panjabi/Lahnda; Domaaki; Dogri; Indo-Aryan based pigeons and creoles outside South Asia (Languages of mass migrations before the Independence). If you work on a minor Indo-Aryan tongue or know somebody who does, please, let me know.

Thanking you in advance,
With best regards,
Tatiana Oranskaia
