Subject:  Kashmiri speaker

Dear LINGUISTLIST,

I am looking for a native speaker of Kashmiri (Dardic Indo-Aryan
language spoken mostly in the Kashmir province of India) to verify the
stress assignment on the words below.  Notes about transcription: [I]
is "barred I", [^] is schwa, [C] is the lax mid back vowel "reverse
C", [S] is "esh", and main stress is marked with an apostrophe before
the stressed syllable.

['ba.tI]		'food/cooked rice'
['phi.ki.ri]		'understand'
['ku.ni.vi.zi]		'sometime'
['a.ni.ga.tI]		'darkness'
['^^.nI]		'mirror'
['ki.taab]		'book'
['baa.sun]		'to seem'
[mC.kI.'laa.vun]	'to finish'
['baa.laa.d^r]		'balcony'
['dee.v^^.lii]		'the Hindu festival of lights'
['k^^.phii]		'enough'
['aa.raam]		'rest'
[mu.'kad.di.ma]		gloss?
[vah.'raa.vun]		'to spread'
['gi.dun]		'to play'
['y^m.bIr.zal]		'narcissus'
[boo.'dees.var]		'Lord'
['na.kI.voor]		'nostril'
[So.'kIr. vaar]		'Friday'
[vuS.'naa.vun]		'to warm'
[pham.'vaa.rI]		'fountains'
[dar.'vaa.zI]		'door'


Thank you in advance for your help.

Dear linguists:
I am looking for any references related to the analysis of fictional

Subject:  Roviana

I would like to know if anyone is currently working on the Roviana
language from the Western Province, Solomon Islands.  Can anyone tell
me what work has been done recently?  Has the Roviana dictionary
[Waterhouse, J. H. L.  1949. A Roviana and English
Dictionary. Epworth, Sydney (Revised and enlarged by L. M. Jones)]
been reprinted or revised? I have put a very basic English-Roviana
word list on the web if anyone is interested.

Is anyone else working on electronic resources for this language?
