Summary:   Dear linguists,

Two months ago I submitted a query concerning research on language and
communication awareness of adults actively engaged in business and
administration (LINGUIST 9.1679). I would like to thank Dennis
R. Preston (, Carla Luijks ( and
Stacy Krainz ( for their help, especially for
the references to an unpublished study and to a book that will shortly

- Nancy Niedzielky/Dennis R. Preston: Folk linguistics, Berlin: Mouton de

- Stacy Krainz: A sociolinguistic investigation of the cognitive
organization of language awareness: Male vs. female perspectives,
State University of New York, Buffalo, May 1996.

As the number of responses was moderate, I suppose that studies on
language and communication awareness in the work place are not very
numerous or even not existing at all. I would still appreciate any
further information about research in this area. Thanks again.
