Summary:   HI - I POSTED A QUERY A WHILE AGO ABOUT HOW NON-ENGLISH NAMES
GET ANGLICIZED. WHAT I GOT IN RESPONSE WAS QUITE INTERESTING, THOUGH
MOST OF IT WAS ANECDOTAL, AS THE RESPONDERS THEMSELVES NOTED. MOST OF
THE RESEARCH CITED WAS NOT IN SOCIOLINGUISTICS BUT IN SPEECH
TECHNOLOGY.
I STILL THINK THIS WOULD BE AN INTERESTING TOPIC TO WORK ON. IN ANY
CASE, I'M INCLUDINNG THE RESPONSES I GOT, WITH THANKS TO ALL AND
APOLOGIES FOR THE TYPOGRAPHICAL IRREGULARITIES -
BEST, LARRY ROSENWALD, WELLESLEY COLLEGE
