Subject:  urgent request for a Nahuatl interpreter

Hi folks,

I just received this urgent request from an acquaintance (see email excerpt
below).

Are there any competent Nahuatl speakers (I'm told that the defendant hails
from Puebla) or friends of Nahuatl speakers out there who might be able to
lend a hand? Please send your responses to me and/or Lois Feuerle at:

      Lois.M.FEUERLE at ojd.state.or.us

Apparently the state of Oregon is on the lookout for speakers of various
Mesoamerican languages (e.g. Tarasco, Zapoteco, Mixteco, Mam) to do
translation work, so please contact Lois if you are interested in helping out.

Thank you for your assistance.

I am trying to find out what work has been published that takes the
internet and examples found in it as the basis (the corpus?)  for
cognitive linguistic studies of some sort: conceptualization, metaphor,
or simply studies that have to do with the language used in the internet
from a cognitive linguistics perspective. I would APPRECIATE immensely
any reference sent to me. I will post what I receive here in this list.
Thanks so much! If anyone could tell me too where to look for studies of
this sort this would also be of great help.

I look forward to your replies.
