    Dear Humanist colleagues, I deal with comparing the sound pictures of world
    languages. I have studied so far 156 world languages from the point of view
    of occurrence of phonemes in their sound chains. I guess it can be called
    the typological study. This is why, I'm particularly interested how
    linguists and other scholars understand typology. Can one call my study the
    "comparative typology"? What is typology as it is? Looking forward to
    hearing from you soon to yutamb@hotmail.com
    Remain yours most sincerely Yuri Tambovtsev
