Request for bibliography
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
A student at the University of Costa Rica who does not have access to
linguist.list and wants to write her Master's thesis on some aspect of
non native acquisition of Spanish has asked me to ask the members of
the list to suggest essential bibliography in this specific area as
well as the general area of second language acquisition. She, and I,
will genuinely appreciate your assistance. You may respond directly

I am posting this request on behalf of a friend who is on the
faculty of a Houston, Texas law school. She is doing research on the
use of ethnic slurs and insults as a means of social control and would
appreciate any references you may know on this subject, first in the
context of North America, but also in any other cultural context.
Responses may be sent to me and I will pass them on to her. Thank you.

My Brother's Keeper, a documentary about a murder trial involving
three elderly brothers who have spent their lives in virtual isolation
on a farm in upstate New York. Their English is unique and at times
requires subtitles (particularly that of the eldest brother, Delbert).
I'm wondering if it is a ''family dialect'' rather than a regional
dialect. Does anyone have more information on this?
