The LINGUIST List depends on the generous contributions from
subscribers like you; we would not be able to operate without your
help.

The moderators, staff, and student editors at LINGUIST would like to
take this opportunity to thank you for your continuous support.

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.

Hello everyone. One of my 'Language Acquisition and Development'
course asked me today about Genie: 'Is she still alive?' 'Is it still
possible to buy copies of Susan Curtiss' book (1977)?  I did not find
anything about it today.  Could you please ilustrate me about this?

Thank you very much
