Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton
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.

Najavo Corpus Request
History of French Textbooks
Message 1: Najavo Corpus Request

Subject: Najavo Corpus Request
I am currently working on a Navajo Syntax project, and I am wondering if
anyone knows of an existing Navajo corpus that is available for research
purposes. I appreciate any feedback or potential ideas.

Message 2: History of French Textbooks

Subject: History of French Textbooks
I'll be teaching a course called ''History of the French Language'' and was
hoping that List readers could recommend a textbook? The course will be
geared towards undergraduates with little or no Linguistics background
(mostly none at all) and a wide range of French abilities (from nearly none
to nearly fluent; and presumably, no knowledge at all of Latin).
Therefore, the course will be taught in English. The ideal text, then,
won't be very technical, will cover both internal and external history, and
will be written in English (I suspect in advance that such a text probably
doesn't exist, but I guess it can't hurt to ask!).
Any suggestions for an appropriate textbook and/or useful articles would be
greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. If there's interest, I will
gladly post a summary back to the List.
