Subject:   parallel Serbian-Croatian fonts


Can anyone point me to fonts (for Windows) in Serbian and Croatian
that use corresponding character mappings, so that any text in one
script will be appropriately displayed in the other language simply by
switching fonts? The closest match I know of still has two characters
mismatched.

If I find anything, I'll post the info here.

We are looking for lexical databases (ideally with orthographic,
phonological, morphological, and syntactic information, but any subset
of that is better than nothing) and for frequency lists in several
languages other than English, including Italian, French, Russian,
Polish, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, and Urdu.  If you know of any, I
would very much appreciate it if you could point me towards them.

Subject:  Diphthongs


I'm looking for any language that contrasts rising and falling
diphthongs: [ao] vs. [oa], [ai] vs. [ia], [ua] vs. [au].  I'll post a
summary of the findings as soon as I have them.

Please reply to <chrisg at csufresno.edu> directly.

Thanks,

Subject:  Mathiot's "A Dictionary of Papago Usage"


I am a graduate student at the University of Arizona and I am writing
my dissertation on the Tohono O'odham language.  I'm currently using
the library's copy of Madeleine Mathiot's "A Dictionary of Papago
Usage", but I would love to own my own copy.  The problem is that it
is out of print.  I would like to buy a copy of this dictionary if any
of you would be willing to part with your copy, or know where I could
find one.  The full citation is:

Mathiot, Madeleine. 1973. A Dictionary of Papago Usage, Vols. 8/1 &
8/2 of the Language Science Monographs series. Bloomington: Indiana
University Publications.

Thanks in advance.

Laura Moll-Collopy
