A student of mine is researching simultaneous acquisition of two
languages in children. Does anyone have any good references to
suggest? Please reply to me directly. Thank you.

Message 2: Historical development of fricatives

Subject: Historical development of fricatives

I am posting this on behalf of a graduate student of mine
who is not on the LINGUIST list.

 I am currently working on a doctoral thesis on consonant sound change in
 the ancient Italic languages. One change which occurs is an intervocalic
 voicing of /s/ to /z/ (which later became /r/). I would very much like
 to find out about parallel cases (diachronic, from any language group),
 under either of the following two conditions:

 1) when /s/ becomes /z/ intervocalically, but other
 voiceless fricatives in the system do not voice,

 2) when voiceless fricatives other than /s/ voice, but /s/ does not.

 Thank you in advance for comments.

If anyone can think of appropriate examples, I would be grateful if
you could send them to me directly, rather than to the LINGUIST list.
We will post the usual summary of replies.

Subject: non verbal communication

I am currently working on the relationship between beat gestures and intonation
patterns in French and English. As part of my research, I have looked into
different coding systems for gestures established by people like D.McNeill,
G.Calbris or the system used in the English-BSL bilingual dictionnary. Are
 thereother major references I should look up? Has anyone come across a coding
 system
combining gestures and intonation patterns?
Many thanks for your help,
Veronique Laurens.
