Osgood); "How To Find the Right Tree To Bark Up" (Robert B. Lees); "Three Linguistic Reincarnations of a Kashmiri Pandit" (Kachru); and "A Sense of Perspective" (Charles W. Kisseberth). The second part contains memorial tributes to Henry Kahane. Part 3 consists of abstracts of the dissertations and theses of doctoral and master's degree candidates in the department, including research in progress up to August 1992.
