Subject:  Native English Speaking Returnee Students


There are many returned expatriots of native English speaking
countries.  Some are businessmen, entrepreneurs, academics,
journalists, and researchers.  For purposes of academic study, I am
interested in being put in contact with families who have

1) lived overseas in a non-native English speaking country;
2) children who attended public schools there for any period
            between K and 9th grades;
3) now returned to their native English-speaking countries;
4) AND would be willing to complete a  stamped mailed questionnaire.

My interest is an extension of a Toyota Foundation-funded study of
language minority students in Japanese public schools. The results of
this work have been published in Japanese, _Gaijin Seito ga Yatte
Kita_, Takahashi M. and Vaipae, S.V., Tokyo: Taishokan, 1996, and and
the English version is forthcoming. Now that we know what happens in
the second language schooling, it would be informative to discover the
varieties of cultural re-entry and return to schooling in the native
language.

If you have had this experience, or are acquainted with such a family,
I would very much appreciate your assistance in making these contacts.

Sincerely,
Sharon Vaipae

Dear Colleague,
	Although I have long been working on the history of English
lexicography, I have not yet been able to find a copy of Tetsuro
Hayashi's _A History of English Lexicography_ (Kaibunsha Publishing
Co., Tokyo 1968). Can anyone tell where I can find it -- preferably in
an Italian or a British library -- or help me to get a copy of it?
Thank you.

I need specific references for two statistics that turn up everywhere
-  including my own notes from grad school. One says that 65% of all
information in typical English speech is nonverbal; the other says 90%
of emotional information in English speech is nonverbal. I've found a
dozen references *to* these statistics, but none offering an original
source, although one cryptic note appears to credit Bolinger. Please
email me directly if you can help -- thanks.
