Message 1: Danish Infinitives

Dear Linguists,

The following query was sent by Dr. Outi Bat-El of Tel Aviv University.
Could you kindly reply directly to her at <obatelpost.tau.ac.il>.

Thank you,
Uri Horesh




According to Anderson (1992 and earlier studies) Danish infinitives end in a
schwa suffix and the imperatives are formed by truncating this schwa. Do ALL
Danish infinitives end in a schwa? If not, what is the imperative
corresponding to an infinitive not ending in a schwa? Does this group
consists of a few isolated verbs or is it a rather large group of verbs?

Message 2: How Women are Conceptualised Again!

Subject: How Women are Conceptualised Again!

Dear colleagues,

A few weeks ago, I posted a query to some linguistics lists about the way
women are conceptualised in various languages. Many of you kindly sent me
invaluable contributions. Now, I am in the process of writing, and data
about some languages is needed for the conclusions to the paper to be
representative and reliable. I have organised the data in tables according
to source domain. If you are interested in sharing data from fifteen
languages, and contributing missing metaphors from your own language, please
contact me, and I will send you the data to be supplemented as attachment.
In anticipation of your collaboration, please receive my thanks in advance.
