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:  Formant Frequencies - Role of transfer in Native Russian's English

Is there any research/data available on Formant frequencies of Russian
/jo/ and unstressed /o/? This would be useful in developing my thesis
on Russian English learners' strategies for emulating the English
mid-vowels.

Subject-Language: Russian; Code: RUS

Subject:  random wordlist generator using phonemic inventory

I am looking for a software program that would take the phonemic
inventory of a language and generate wordlists to use with language
consultants in fieldwork.

For example, Hawaiian has an inventory of consonants h k l m n p ' w
and vowels a e i o u

Is there software that would randomly generate word lists like the
following?

ha he hi ho hu haa hae hai hao hau, etc.

A linguist here in Hawai'i told me about such a program he worked with
years ago, and if available, I'd like to use it for a under-documented
language I'm doing fieldwork on.

Thanks for your help, world-wide linguists!
