Subject:  prescriptivism

For my thesis on "prescriptivism and the role of the linguist" I'm looking
for definitions of "prescriptivism".

I'd be most grateful for any contributions.  One-liners would be welcome,
as would more detailed characterizations and illustrative examples.

Subject:  Quebecois

I have been looking for a Quebecois vernacular version of the Gospel of
St. Luke.  I realize that most Quebecois use and have used a "Standard
French" version, but I know I've seen more than one version of the New
Testament in an approximation of everyday language; an early one from
around 1800 and a modern one probably from the 1960's when the language
issue was picking up speed.  If you have a copy, know of one, or have any
ideas as to where I might find one, please let me know asap since I really
need the text, actually only Luke 2:1-7, by Dec 1 at the latest.
Thank you
K Cody

Subject:  Suppletion of GO and BE

Dear Linguists,

In Spanish, Galician, and Portuguese the preterite (related forms) of TO
GO come from the paradigm of TO BE (this occurs optionally in some
contexts in French).  I would like to know if there are any other
languages with similar paradigm importations between GO and BE or other
pairs of verbs with a similar degree of semantic distance (as compared to
the relatively closer semantics, for example, of _go_ and _went_ in the
history of English).

Thanks in advance for your help.
