This newsletter reports on phenomena at the intersection of linguistics and psychoanalysis and psychiatry. This issue consists of the following articles: (1) an editorial entitled "The Many (Inter)Faces of Language," by Robert Di Pietro--observations on various approaches to the study of language, particularly psycholinguistics; (2) a request for reading lists in linguistics which might be helpful to people in the medical sciences, particularly psychiatrists and psychoanalysts; (3) "Kick the Bucket is Not an Idiom," by Charles Ruhl--a semantic interpretation of this euphemism; (4) "Response to 'Language Dreaming,'" by Roger Wescott--on word associations people tend to make, and (5) a list of puns. The sixth section consists of summaries of three papers given at the panel on"Pscychoanalytic Contributions to Second Language Learning," held at the ACTFL convention, November 29, 1975, in Washington, D.C.: (a) "Language Code Switching in Bilingual Psychotherapy: A Preliminary Report:" by A. D'Amore; (b) "On Generalizing Meaning" by C. Ruhl; (c) an untitled paper, by Earl W. Stevick, dealing with a student's self-image and behavior in the language class. The general discussion following the presentations is also summarized. The newsletter ends with announcements about conferences, meetings and new books. (TL)
