Subject: Season's Greetings
Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
As I suspect I have already suggested, the annual exam / essay crunch
has hit, and discussion on SHAKSPER, like that on REED-L, has suddenly
ground to a halt in response to increased marking responsibilities,
studying preparation, and/or preparations for seasonal festivities.
I myself just barely surfaced above a flood of undergraduate essays,
only to be awash in waves of greeting cards, gift shopping, and
babysitting. Discussion on SHAKSPER will unfortunately be halted
between December 20th and 28th, as I will be away from my terminal
(and the EPAS and ListServ facilities at Toronto will be operating
unattended, which may mean that they will be inoperating unattended).
If anyone has any messages they wish to transmit before this protracted
hiatus, please submit them today.
As always, my apologies to anyone this may inconvenience or disappoint,
in particular our new members who have seen SHAKSPER only in its most
silent mode. I will do my best to stimulate further discussion once
we have all recovered from term end and/or the holidays.
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one
of you a truly joyous holiday season, whether Christmas, Hanukkah,
or simply the semester break. Also best wishes for a happy, healthy, and
productive New Year!
See you in a week.
University of Toronto

Subject: Linguistics List
[I reproduce this announcement from the ANSAX-L Discussion Group,
because I think it might interest members of SHAKSPER as well. KS]
ANNOUNCING A NEW LIST
A new list has been formed, which will serve as a place of
discussion for those issues which concern the academic discipline of
linguistics and related fields. The list is international in orientation,
and hopes to provide a forum for the community of linguists as they exist
in different countries. Though the list is moderated, and all submissions
are subject to editorial discretion, it has no areal, ideological or
theoretical bent, and discussion of any linguistic subfield are welcomed.
Membership of the list is open to all.
To subscribe to this list, please send a message to
line the following:
