Dear Linguists,

I am a linguist working at Lonely Planet Publications in Melbourne,
Australia.

Currently we are working at putting together a South Pacific
phrasebook with sections on the various languages found in this vast
area. Unfortunately we are having trouble finding someone to write
the Cook Islands Maori (Rarotongan) section.

If anyone could write the chapter or has any contacts  please
contact me. Of course due payment would be made.

Thanks in advance,

Peter D'Onghia

I found this 1994 in the list archives (posted by Alison Henry):

Is anyone working on, or can anyone suggest references on,
computational models of parameter setting in language acquisition?

I'd like to ask the same question.  Below is the result from her
original query.  Any additions would be great.

Thanks,  Wm Sakas

Subject:  a discussion on the sibilant

Dear queries department,

I am a Ph.D. student at Queen Mary and Westfield College at
the University of London and am doing research on the history of the
old Spanish sibilant.  While researching language universals and
typology, I have been unable to find any research in this area as it
pertains to the sibilant or fricative.
 Does anyone have any suggestions on where I might begin to find something
centered around the sibilant?  Thanks loads!  Dana Allen
