Subject:  Left and Right

I've got a question about the words "left" and "right": Grammatically,
they are adjectives, but are they considered open-class or
closed-class? Are all adjectives by definition open-class, or are they
heterogeneous for this classification?

Any references on this issue would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks!

Subject:  French Language Variations

Does anyone know of a resource that discusses the
variations/differences between the various forms of WRITTEN French
around the world?  How different is African French from European
French and Quebecois?  I am not interested in spoken differences, just
written ones.

Does anyone have any ideas where I might get any info?

Thank you,
Corey Heller

Subject:  Western European Dialects

I am doing a phd in linguistics in Lausanne, on western european
dialects.  I do correlations between old phonetic changes, old
lexicon, and genetics.  Many linguistic atlases are not very rich in
lexicon, for example the different linguistic atlases of
U.K. Therefore i look for dialect specialists of the different
U.K.dialects, as well as other western european dialects. Can you help
me?  Thanks in advance, Florent Dieterlen
