Dear Linguist List Readers,

I am looking for a list of English loanwords in Italian and a list of
English loanwords in Chinese. If you know where I can find this
information, please send me the references.

Thank you

I would really appreciate it if anyone could provide me with any
information about Spanish universities where research projects on
textual criticism and editing of Medieval texts, preferably English,
are currently being done, or about any professor who works on that
area.

Thank you very much for your help,
Teresa

Subject:  Phonetics courses

In my phonetics course, students are expected to master both the perception
and the production of most human speech sounds.

There are a few sounds that have consistently proven to be difficult for
students to produce. I have some tips, and Ladefoged gives some in his
textbook, but they don't help many/most students.

If anyone has production tips that have proven to be effective (or even
semi-effective) for the following, please reply to me off-list.


1) Trills    (both alveolar and uvular)

2) clicks    (students consistently nasalize them, and some never get
              past that. Is there any way to get them to stop nasalizing
              the clicks? For that matter, if anyone knows WHY students
              want to nasalize them, that might in itself be helpful. I
              originally thought that it was based on the "mwa" kissing
              sound effect used by English speakers, which is the only
              syllable in English in which the click is integrated with
              a vowel, but I've since found
              this tendency in students from all language backgrounds,
              so I don't think that that's the reason.)

3) voiceless unaspirated stops for people whose native language has only
    voiceless aspirated stops
    (I can get Japanese students to generalize from long stops, but it is
     then often difficult for them to get rid of the glottal stricture
     that is associated with long voiceless stops in Japanese. Other
     languages don't have even that much to offer as a base that can be
     extended and shaped.)

4) ejectives and implosives, when they don't seem to be able to get the
   raising and lowering of the larynx under conscious control.


Any help anyone has to offer will be appreciated.

thanks.
