Gender and miscommunication references

I inadvertently omitted the following excellent critique of Tannen's book:

Freed, Alice, 1992. "We Understand Perfectly: A Critique of
Tannen's View of Cross-Sex Communication." In _Locating Power:

Women and Language Group. (Pp. 144-152), 1992.

After I posted the list of references I received the following additions
including some for those who read Dutch

Subject: Sum: More on negation in French and English

A postscript to my previous summary on negation in French and English. There
is a good pedagogical treatment in :

J. Delisle, LA TRADUCTION RAISONEE. Ottawa, Les Presses de l'Universite
d'Ottowa, 1993. Available from: Gaetan morin editeur, 171, Boul de Mortagne,
Boucherville (Quebec), Canada, J4B 6G4, Tel: (514) 449 7886 or in Europe from
Tothemes diffusion, 26 avenue de l'Europe, 78140 Velisy, France. Tel: (+33) 1
34 63 33 33.

Delisle refers to the following articles by S. Pons-Ridler & G. Quillard:

Pedagogie de la negation. TTR, vol 5, no1, 1992, pp 113-143

Quelques aspects de la negation: comparaison de l'anglais et du francais. La
Revue canadienne des langues vivantes vol 47, no. 2, Jan 1991, pp. 327-340.

Stylistique comparee: la forme interro-negative en francais et en anglais. La
Linguistique, vol 27, fasc 1, 1991, pp. 111-118.

Thanks to P. Russell from Sherbrooke University for sending me this information.

I'll send in a summary on French corpora soon. I'm still waiting for some
promised information to arrive in the post.

Long live the List! Send in your money soon, folks.
