A little help

I am the Section Editor for 'Language' for the forthcoming
Encyclopedia of the Midwest (IU Press), and I am having difficulty
locating writers for a few entries on various languages (and language
groups) in the Midwest (roughly Canada to the Ohio River and Eastern
Dakotas-Nebraska-Kansas to Pennsylvania; please don't point out how
that might not fit your definition of the "Midwest." It ain't exactly
mine neither).

Here's what I need:

The names of scholars (living) who have done research on any aspects
of the current status, structure, shape, preservation, influence on
and from English of the following language or language groups in the

Non-Arabic languages of the Middle and Near East
Other Romance languages (excluding Spanish)

I'd be delighted with any leads or suggestions.
