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.

Naming Practices and Titles

Subject: Forensic Ling Programs
I am trying to put together as thorough a list as possible of linguistics
programs in the United States with degrees, concentrations, or courses in
the various subfields of forensic linguistics.
Specifically, I'd be interested in knowing the following:
Level of activity in forensic lx (degree, concentration/minor, individual
Academic level (graduate, undergraduate)
Subfield (forensic phonetics/voiceid, author id, pragmatics, and so on)
I don't know of an exisiting list, but will be happy to post a detailed
summary here once I compile the information (obviously, the greater the
response level, the more useful the final list will be!)
Thanks to all and happy new year,

Subject: Naming Practices and Titles
In my ''Language and Gender'' course, I am planning to discuss recent
trends in naming practices for women who get married and the use of ''Ms'',
''Mrs'', and ''miss'', and I'd like to compare the situation in
English-speaking countries with what happens in other countries to show
that different models exist (e.g., in Spanish-speaking countries, in
Iceland, in Québec). I'd be very grateful if you could point me to
references that describe practices in various communities or tell me what
the practice is in communities that you are familiar with, whether things
have been changing, etc.
I'll gladly share a summary of the responses I receive with anyone who is
