We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject:  Case alternation

Dear Linguists,

I am looking for languages that show a Case alternation (Partitive
[Genitive]/Accusative) in the underlying position of the internal
argument of the sort observed in the Slavic languages and Finnish. Do
you know any other languages of this type?
If you happen to know any, please answer to my e-mail address below, I
will post a summary of the answers on the list.

Thanks a lot
Susann Fischer

I have a colleague who is working with a research assistant on
transcribing data in Tamil.  They would like to be able to share
files, but one works in Mac and the other in the Windows world.  They
have a preference for a standard IPA-style of transcription.  Does
anyone have a suggestion for a 'font solution'?  Much of the data is
already transcribed using SIL's IPA font for the PC, but alternative
ideas would be very greatly appreciated.
