Sherlock Will
Discuss 'Unions
and Engineers'
Prof. R. H. Sherlock of the civil
engineering department will speak
on "Unions and Engineers" at the
first meeting of the summer term of
the Institute of Aeronautical Sci-
ences to be held at 7:30 p.m. EWT
(6:30 p.m. CWT) today at the Union.
For future meetings to be held
twice a month, the I.A.S., according
to its chairman, Bill Scudder, plans
"a diversified and interesting pro-
gram of social functions and discus-
sions." "The discussions," he ex-
plained, "will cover topics otherwise
uncovered in aeronautical engineer-
ing courses."

from 1 P.M.




Times Today

Pike To Give
Special Talk
On Linguistics
To Explain Methods
Of Language Study
Techniques developed through
practical field experience will be used
by Dr. Kenneth L. Pike, lecturer in
phonetics, when he opens the Lin-
guistics Institute's series of special
lectures at 7:30 p.m. EWT (6:30 p.m.
CWT) today in the Rackham Amphi-
theatre with a demonstration of" his
method of beginning the study of a
language from a native informant
without the aid of an interpreter.
Trip to Mexico
In 1935 Dr. Pike went to Mexico to
undertake a study of Mixteco, one of
the native Indian languages. Within
one day after entering the area where
the language is spoken, the guide was
suddenly obliged to return, and Dr.
Pike was left to continue entirely on
his own resources. In spite of the
difficulty of having no language in
common with the Indians, he suc-
ceeded in learning their tongue and
analyzing its structure. He also
learned Spanish, of which he previ-
ously had had no knowledge, by the
methods he developed in studying
Dr. Pike, who, in addition to being
a member of the faculty of the Lin-
guistic Institute, is professor of pho-
netics at the Summer Institute of
Lingui':tics at Norman, Oklahoma,
and visiting lecturer at the Univer-
sity of Oklahoma, will give his dem-
onstration today under conditions
equalling or exceeding in difficulty
those he faced when he began his
study of Mivteco. Dr. Pike will not
be told in advance even the name of
the language his informant speaks,
nor will the informant be told the
purpose for which he has been
brought to the lecture. In order not
to take advantage of the fact that
the informant has acquired a knowl-
edge of English, Dr. Pike will use
only Mixteco in addressing him.
Introductory Talk
The demonstration will begin with
a brief introductory talk on the prob-
lems and techniques of learning a
language directly from a native
speaker; then Dr. Pike. will interview
the informant for a half hour; and
at the conclusion of the interview he
will explain to the audience what
he has been able to learn about the
language, with the informanteand
those members of the Institute (if
any) who. have some, knowledge of
the language either substantiating or
correcting his conclusions.
Dr. Pike is the author of "Pho-
netics: a Critical Analysis of Phonet-
ic Theory and a Technic for the Prac-
tical Description of Sounds," and
"Phonemics: a Technic of Reducing
Language to Writing."
