Query:   Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,

I am a senior a lecturer in linguistics in the Department of English at
Fez University. I am supervising a number of Ph.D doctorants from the
departments of English and French.

I am actually prepapring a paper on how to help doctorate students
from Departments other than English use and benefit from references
on Theoretical Linguistics written in English. To do so, I seek to get
information on the difficulties that this category of students with an
average standard of English language proficiency usually faces when
reading references in English knowing that most primary sources are
written in English? How can we help those students benefit from those
sources to progress in their research? I want to have different linguists'
points of view about this issue.

LINGUIST members may contact me off list, and I promise to collect all
the replies and submit them as a Summary for those who may be

With much appreciation,

Dr. Souad Slaoui
