Query:   Dear Linguists/Colleagues,

I should like to seek your valuable assistance for some pieces of
information. The materials I need (all must be in English) are as follows:

1. A bibliography of linguistic research methods/methodology, e.g. J. C.
Chambers, Dialectology.

2. Wordlists (alphabetical as well as thematic) used for collecting dialect
vocabulary or elicitation purposes, e.g. the Swadesh list.

3. English dictionaries or encyclopedias of linguistics, e.g. D. Crystal,
Encyclopedia of Linguistics and Phonetics.

Since I need the above materials for writing an introductory books of
linguistic research methods (for Iranian students), I appreciate your kind
favor if you could send me copies of your own works (as indicated above) to
me at the following address: PO Box 37185-744, Qom, Iran.

I will be very grateful for your kind cooperation and contribution.
