Query:   We are conducted a research project for the Department of English
and Linguistics of the University of Mainz in Germany. We are a group
of three students and we are writing a term paper on ''bilingual puns''
for our senior seminar ''Contrastive Linguistics: English-German with
Prof. Callies.


Since it is not easy to access a sufficient amount of bilingual puns
(preferably English and German but otherwise, we would include any
other European language as well), we would like to ask you whether
you have a data base that we could use for our investigations and our
analysis.

We really would appreciate your help. Thank you very much in
advance.

Yours sincerely,

Laura Brauer, Julia Schäfer and Nicole Weinheimer
