Subject: Argument Structure and Equationality

Dear LinguistList

I'm beginning to study Argument Structure deeper and I would like to ask
for a reading list from anybody who has one. Likewise, do I need a reading
list for any and all works about Equationality. Any reference is 
appreciated!

Thanks truly,
Paul Llido

I would like to obtain a copy of

Message 3: phonetic nasalisation symbol 2

From: Marc Fryd <Marc.Frydmshs.univ-poitiers.fr>
Subject: phonetic nasalisation symbol 2

Hi,
Many thanks for the numerous responses to my previous query concerning
the location of the nasalisation symbol in phonetic fonts.
IPAPhon does indeed possess such a diacritic!
Thanks also for the suggestion to use the following utility for viewing
fonts:
http://aritechdev.hypermart.net/ecm.zip
http://aritechdev.hypermart.net/ecm.zip

Two problems remains though:
- the tilde is well centred on most vowels except on the larger
"ash" vowel, where it centres above the "e" part of
the character;
- the diacritic prints just fine but looks rather like a macron on a
computer screen. 
Any suggestions?
Marc Fryd
