Subject: Ref. on Swiss French Prosody

Could anyone help me with references on the prosodic system of Swiss
French(s). 
I am also looking for comparisons between prosodic systems of different
varieties of French (within & between French speaking countries). 

Please reply to me directly (cecile.fougeronpse.unige.ch), I'll post a
summary to the list. 

Many thanks, 
Cecile

Message 2: Selling of Theses/Dissertations over the Internet

Subject: Selling of Theses/Dissertations over the Internet

Hi there,

 I have just been made aware of a website called www.contentville.com.

 Apparently, the National Library in Canada has given them rights to sell 
all dissertations and MA theses published in the last 12 years (at least). I 
found my own work on there, without my knowledge, or having given consent. 
Does anyone know what the laws/rules (esp in Canada) are governing this type 
of distribution? Or, if as a condition of submitting our work to the 
National Library, we waived any rights regarding renumeration, etc? A 
substantial amount of work from American universities is also available from 
this website, so perhaps this issue has already been dealt with there? 
Thanks very much!
