Subject: Qs:Books about Turkish, Arabic, Persian, Urdu dealing with humor


Dear Linguists,

I am researching on the use of jokes in conversation among college
students from Middle Eastern countries, with varying degree of
proficiency in English. The languages of my concentration are
Turkish, Arabic, Persian and Urdu.

I am looking for articles and books on humor-joke-verbal play in the
above mentioned languages or any theoretical work in English dealing
with the above cultures in the same subject(s).

Thank you for your help. Please respond to my email address:
<gokdayiu.washington.edu> I'll try to post a summary.

Message 2: 'Renumber' program

Subject: 'Renumber' program
 Dear colleagues, 

 some time ago I bought a program called 'RENUMBER': renumber is a program
very usefull for those scholars that use numbered examples in their texts and
often are in need to change the numbering (because one can add an example
or delete one).
 I do not remember where I bought this program in the States. Can you help
me? I need, in particular, a Window '95 version of the program.
 Please, answer to my private address (g7mdns.unife.it).

 Many thanks. Sergio Scalise

Message 3: Moscow Linguistic Journal

Subject: Moscow Linguistic Journal

In February of this year, this list announced the creation of a
new journal, the 'Moscow Linguistic Journal'. I have been trying
for some time now to get in touch with this journal through the
e-mail provided, namely : <apldrggu.msk.su>, but the address
seems to be wrong. I have not been able to locate any of the
members of the editorial board, nor the university site on which
depends the journal. Could anybody give me a reliable address
where I can get in touch with this journal ? Sorry to bother the
list with such trifle problems. Thanks, Jerome Serme.
