Subject: Bonin Islands English

Dear Colleagues,

The editing work has been completed on a volume of Japanese and English
papers entitled The Linguistic Culture of the Ogasawara (Bonin) Islands,
which will be volume 6 of the _Japanese Language Research Center
Reports_ published here at Osaka Shoin Women's College. It will be
available from June 20th.

The table of contents and text of the introduction (both in English) are
available on our website, and the extensive "Bibliography of
Humanities-Related Works on the Ogasawara Islands" contained in the
volume is available online as well.

Some of you have expressed an interested in the collection of papers
(and I have not forgotten those of you who have). If anyone else would
like a copy, please contact me at the email address below.
My own paper in the volume (The History of Language Contact in the
Ogasawara Islands) is in Japanese this time, but I hope to publish a
similar paper in English as soon as possible.

My thanks to those of you who expressed interest, support and who lent
your advice.
