We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

I am looking for a book, _A Natural History of Negation_, by Laurence
Horn; University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1989.

It's hard to come by, it seems; should someone have a copy they could
spare I should like to have it.

Message 2: Article references

Subject: Article references

I'm trying to find out if written versions of either of the following
two talks, both presented in 1995, have appeared in print (or if
they're scheduled to appear anytime soon):

(1) "The Diachronic Development of the Article in English"
 (presented at DIGS 4)

(2) "The Use of Articles in Old English Prose"
 (presented at the 11th Comparative Germanic Syntax Workshop)

Both talks are by Paola Crisma (who apparently, is not a subscriber to
LINGUIST). Any help in locating these papers or their author would be
appreciated. Thank you very much.
