I am teaching a history of English course and a couple of my students
have found it so interesting that they would like to learn more about
the history of Russian and of German.  These students have only had
one introductory course in linguistics besides the history of English
class, so the texts would have to be _very_ reader-friendly.  It would
be preferable but not necessary that they be in English as well.  Our
library has no such books and I can't tell from prowling other
computer bases which books would be appropriate and which are
impossible.
 
Does anyone know of some books I could suggest to them?  I'll publish
a summary of all suggestions.
 
Thanks!

Hello, fellow linguists-
 
    I just read the E-mail survey summary, and realized that people
 do use this forum to locate new colleagues.  Therefore may I be
 excused for doing just that.  I would be very interested in clacking
 with anyone who is doing research into the Tibetan language, in
particular phonetics/phonology/morphology.  I am beginning to gather
information with a view towards doing a project at either the
Masters or the PhD level in that area.  The books in the library
don't tell me who is doing what right now.  Is there any room for
interesting work, or has it all been done  :)   ?

Subject:   Topic structures in Minimalist framework
 
Hello,
 
I'm currently interested in sentences with two pre-verbal NPs, similar
to the so-called "double nominative" construction in Chinese.  I'm
looking at these as some sort of topic-comment structure (following
data from Japanese and Korean, where topic and subject have different
morphological markers).  Is there anyone out there who knows of recent
work done on topic, especially in Minimalism (though I'm also
interested in what has been done in other frameworks)?
 
Any comments on this topic gratefully received......
