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.

Hi, everyone!
I am a student from Minsk State Linguistics University and I am doing a
research on the definite article. I am currently seeking for examples where
the use of the definite article can't be explained from the point of view of
familiarity or identifiability. If somebody came across such instances, I
would be very interested to receive them.

Thanks a lot

Subject:  Politcal correctness

	
MESSAGE: A student of mine is interested in studies of political
correctness in language usage, particularly with relation to physical
or psychological disabilities, but she would also be interested in
general references about political correctness. I would appreciate it
if any of you could send suggested references to me at
john at research.haifa.ac.il


Thanks very much.
John Myhill
