Now Online - Your Virtual Linguistics Campus

After more than a year of intensive developement (implementation,
evaluation, and testing), and an average of 80.000 visits per month, we
now officially launch the Virtual Linguistics Campus
(http://www.linguistics-online.de)

The Virtual Linguistics Campus is a non-commercial joint project of the
German universities of Essen, Marburg, and Wuppertal financed by the
German Government. The development and implementation has been carried
out by the Linguistic Engineering Team of Marburg University. Even
though we are still working (and will be), the linguistic material
available at this point in time may be of great help for students,
staff, and researchers in linguistics.

The Virtual Linguistics Campus offers courses in linguistics and many
more. It realizes most options of a real campus: a lecture hall, a
laboratory, a library, and special sections for students and staff. All
administrative facilities necessary for studying linguistics have also
been included: a registration office, an information desk, and means of
communication, such as chat rooms, message boards, and many more. The
techniques of presenting the linguistic material on the Virtual
Linguistics Campus are beyond the scope of conventional methods of
presentation.

Have a look around, visit the ,buildings' of the campus, and feel free
to contact us: info at linguistics-online.de

Subject:  Internet Bibliography on South Asian Languages

I would like to call the readers' attention to the following homepage:

http://www.southasiabibliography.de/

This bibliography is intended to help researchers of seldom studied or
endangered South Asian languages in locating literature on these
languages. It is also intended to be a means of letting other
researchers know of new work in the field which may be of interest to
them. "South Asia" here includes India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh,
Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Tibet. Included are languages belonging to the
Indo-European, Dravidian, Tibeto-Burman and Austro-Asiatic families,
the isolates Andamanese, Burushaski and Kusunda, as well as the sign
languages of the subcontinent.

Unforunately, works on better studied languages such as Hindi/Urdu,
Gujarati, Bengali, Kashmiri, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu,
Malayalam and Kannada cannot be included in the present bibliography.
However, due to my own research interests, Nepali has been included
and works on tribal languages in general, even if these are neither
endangered nor seldom studied (e.g. Santali), have been included.

There are also links to a number of related homepages as well as to
email lists dedicated to South Asian linguistics.

The bibliography, while not complete, has proven immensely popular and
is growing almost daily. If your works are not included in the
bibliography, please send me the bibliographic data and I will include
them as soon as possible.

All the best,
John Peterson

Subject:  The plural of euro is euros

A bit of sociolinguistics for the Linguist List. We're having a
dreadful time in Ireland because the impossible and invented plurals
"euro and cent" have been promulgated by the Irish government to the
media, which broadcasts the "legislative" plurals into everyone's
home hundreds of times each day.

I am on a campaign to get this stopped. I have discovered that it
appears that a misunderstanding of the intent of a European Council
regulation is at the root of this evil. If you've an interest in
sociolinguistic disasters, do visit
http://www.evertype.com/standards/euro/index.html and see one voice
crying in the wilderness trying to do something about it.
