Message 1: Lexical semantics readings, one more time

Subject: Lexical semantics readings, one more time

Dear linguists --

My apologies for taking up so much bandwidth with this, but through an
inadvertent error on my part, a large chunk of the revised summary of
lexical semantics readings was omitted: everything from Frege to Ritter
and Rosen didn't appear in the list. Because there was a great deal of
interest in the list, it seems reasonable to supply the missing part. My
apologies --
