A search on Google turns up the following: Bonny Sands Adjunct Assistant Professor of Linguistics Department of English Northern Arizona University Ph.D. Linguistics, UCLA Author of: Eastern and Southern African Khoisan: Evaluating Claims of Distant Linguistic Relationships. Koln: Radiger Koppe Verlag, 1998. "An acoustic study of Xhosa clicks." Actes du XIIème Congres International des Sciences Phonetiques. Aix-en-Provence, 1991. "Comparison and classification of Khoisan languages." Language History and Linguistic Description. Trenton: Africa World Press, 1998. "Interpreting Hadza Data." Festschrift for A. Traill. Koln: Radiger KoppeVerlag, in press. Apparently she's on the Advisory Council of Experts (for Khoisan) at, as well. (I'm interested in the matter since a friend of mine here at Stockholm Uni is probably going to do fieldwork on Hadza.) ||| daniel _________________________________________________________________ Hämta MSN Explorer kostnadsfritt på
