University of British Columbia Working Papers in Linguistics would like to
announce the publication of a new collection of texts recorded and
transcribed from Laura Thevarge, a speaker of the Lower dialect of
St'át'imcets (a.k.a. Lillooet Salish), an endangered language of British
Columbia. The texts are true stories from Laura's rich and varied life
experiences, and exemplify her dynamic oratory style and her deep knowledge
of the language. There are perhaps as few as 50 speakers remaining, and so
this may indeed be one of the last such collections.

The volume is approx. 120 pages, contains 12 stories each divided into 3
sections: St'át'imcets transcription, English translation, and a complete
interlinear gloss. There is an accompanying CD with 12 tracks, containing
the original recordings from which the texts were transcribed.

Please contact UBC Working Papers at:


or visit the UBCWPL website at http://www.linguistics.ubc.ca/UBCWPL/

if you are interested in obtaining a copy. Thank you.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
