Message 1: Great Vowel Shift & South African English

From: Roy Dace <DACEmtb.und.ac.za>
Subject: Great Vowel Shift & South African English

South African English (or at least some varieties of it)
seems to be undergoing a process very like the Great Vowel Shift.
Are there any other dialects in which this process seems to be
repeating itself? I would be grateful for information (and
particularly for any references).
I believe that something similar is happening, or has happened, in New
Zealand English, but I can only find one reference to it - by Roger
Lass.

Does anyone know of Mac software for helping children (or adults) learn
Russian? Fonts are not a problem. I'll be glad to post a summary if there
is interest.

Can anyone out there point me toward literature on the
verbal morphology of some of the languages of South
Sulawesi Indonesia, in particular Bugis, Makassar, or
Toraja? I'm particularly interested in information on
interactions between the agreement systems and
topic/focus constructions. Also, does anyone know the
current whereabouts of Barbara Friberg, and if so, does
she have an e-mail address? Thanks.
