Subject: Qs:Italian Dialects

My name is Giampaolo Poletto, and I would like to know precisely 
the way the first twenty numbers are written and pronunciated in 
the different Italian Dialects.

I am actually helding a course of Italian Dialectology in Pecs, 
Hungary, in the Faculty of Letters of 'Janus Pannonius' University, 
and I would be interested in having some precise and updated 
information on the matter, as to compare the different outcomes.
It is hard that a single book meets this specific requirement, so any
contribution will be mostly welcomed.

Message 2: QS: sign language & aphasia

Subject: QS: sign language & aphasia

I recall having read recently that studies of aphasia in signers (sign
language users) in Japan had revealed problems in the recognition of words
that were written phonetically (problems of recognition similar to those
experienced by speakers when confronted with written text), but that they
siffered no impairmanet of their ability to recognise ideograms (kanji,
Chinese written characters). Can anyone supply me with any bibliographical
references on this topic?
