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.

Describing and quantifying foreign and domestic accents

I am seaking volonteers for a survey of expressions used to
describe and quantify various kinds of accented speech.
In Norwegian we say e.g. that people speak "gebrokkent"
(broken) or that they have a "bred" (broad), "tjukk" (thick)
or "svak" (weak) accent. What expressions do you have for such
things in your language? Please go to
www.hihm.no/lak/survey.htm and fill in the question form. Your
cooperation will be highly appreciated.

The Discourse of Magic

Although there is a huge amount of research on representation of women
in pornography, there seems to be very little about the representation
of women in magic shows. This is despite the fact that semi-naked
women are symbolically impaled, dismembered, burned and restored under
the complete control of the (usually male) magician. I am working on a
paper about the discourse of magic shows but am having difficulty
finding books, papers or even internet sites which critically analyse
the discourse of magic shows.

If anyone has some ideas, or references of any kind then please let me
know (by email).
