Subject: Doubling on Subjects in Causative Constructions

Dear Linguist Community
I am interested whether other cases like Korean exist, where we find the 
doubling on Subjects in Causative constructions: the matrix subject and the 
embedded subject (of transitive or intransitive verbs) are marked nominative 
in Korean. Any information related this issue is welcome. Many thanks in 
advance.

Subject: Teaching a Vision-Impaired Student

Dear all,
I will be teaching a basic first-year phonetics course this term, and 
have just learned that one of the students is going to be almost 
completely blind. He has special software that enables him to transfer 
normal class handouts into speech, but the problem is that it may not be 
able to recognise the phonetic alphabet (IPA). Does anyone have any 
suggestions as to what he could do? Also, if you've any ideas as to how 
I could help him visualise things like the vowel diagram, could you 
please send me an email.

Thanks,

Satu Manninen.
