This issue of the newsletter is dedicated to the memory of Charlene (“Charlie”) Sato (see the article in the next column).

In addition to the usual features, it includes a special report on Melanesia, promised last time, and some detailed information on l’Institut d’Etudes Créoles et Francophones, which has much involvement in French-lexifier creoles and education.

Thanks to support from the Australian Research Council and the University of New England, this newsletter is still free of charge. But as a cost-cutting measure, future issues will be available by e-mail. If you are willing and able to receive the newsletter by e-mail, please send in the enclosed questionnaire form or contact me by e-mail.

Once again, thank you to all the contri-butors. Please keep the information flowing and pass the word (and the newsletter) on to others who may be interested.
