1. A while back there were a couple(?) people asking questions about Moore
(W.Africa). (Can't find the thread in the Archive, but it has to be
there...) In the course of cleaning out my long-neglected shed, I found:
Nikiema, Norbert (Indiana Univ.), 1975: Vowel Length in Moore: Its Phonemic
Status and its Orthographic Representation. (10 pp., including biblio.
IIRC there was just one person who was quite interested; I'll just mail you
the paper.... Disinclined to do extensive xeroxing...But let's see.
2. Matisoff, James 1973: Tonogenesis in Southeast Asia. 30pp. Duplicated
copy, apparently published but no citation (but found it on Google). Useful
though dated biblio. Lots of neat info for tone-language designers, mostly
general, not a lot of data.
My copy is fading, and since there might be wider interest, I'm willing to
retype and either create a PDF and/or put it up on my website temporarily.
There are 2 or 3 Vietnamese words and Chinese characters that I won't be
able to handle (not important-- they're just tone names)
Roger (only 1 shed).
