Succurite O Sodales (S. O. S)

Hey you all,

I think the Frensh can use our help right now. In France they are planning to stop teaching Latin and Greek in high school! We all now that would be a shame and a sign of immorality. We are all believers in the advantages of Latin and Greek, so I think we all have the moral duty to sign the following petition to keep Latin and Greek in the High School system! ...

Today I was skipping some lessons because they were doing some pointless careers activity. Building Windchimes I hear. I was with 2 other boys also of the same opinion. Walking down the coridoor the seriously fat annoying arrogant teacher (it has some kind of special post as a head of some age group) came past us. "Why aren't you in your lessons?"

Arrian Anabasis Reader

Has anyone ever come across an Arrian Anabasis reader which was printed before 1923?

It would be fun to have some Greek about Alexander the Great available for reading - but I just can't find a copy anywhere.

Comparative phonology

Does anyone know of a book that discusses, compares and contrasts the sounds (i.e. phonologies) of the different lanugages of the world? I've already got one on phonetics, and am teaching myself the basic sounds, but I'd like to see how these sounds are put together into phonetic systems in lots of other languages (and what effects this creates in the language, such as "ugliness" or "fluidity"), possibly with a view to making my own ...
