    Dear all,

    We would like to invite you to visit www.mouton-online.com for free demo versions of two forthcoming Mouton multimedia products: "The Mouton Interactive Introduction to Historical Linguistics of German" and "A Handbook of Varieties of English."

    The Mouton multimedia products combine the advantages of traditional books and multimedia concepts. The rich visual and auditory support of our products makes these an ideal learning and teaching tool at a graduate and undergraduate level while also being a useful research database for all linguists.

    "The Mouton Interactive Introduction to Historical Linguistics of German" (http://www.mouton-online.com/histling.php) provides an overview of the historical development of the German language from its beginnings to the present day. It presents and interprets core changes in phonology, morphology, syntax and lexis, and illustrates them using multi-media visualizations. In addition, the CD-ROM contains comprehensive material on textual transmission in the various historical periods of German and on contemporary approaches to explaining language change.

    With more than 100 original contributions authored by widely acclaimed specialists in the field, the two-volume "Handbook of Varieties of English" (http://www.mouton-online.com/varieties.php) is by far the most comprehensive reference work on phonology and the first-ever comprehensive overview of the morphology and syntax of varieties of English in the world. It covers all main national standard varieties, distinctive regional, ethnic, and social varieties, major contact varieties, as well as major ESL varieties. The handbook will be accompanied by a CD-ROM providing new sound material for each variety as well as interactive maps. It will also include comprehensive bibliographies and links to relevant websites.

    We hope that you will enjoy these free sneak previews.

    Best wishes, Julia
