Message 3: "that": dem > comp reanalysis

From: Martin Haspelmath <haspelmatheva.mpg.de>
Subject: "that": dem > comp reanalysis


I have a query on the widely assumed reanalysis of the demonstrative
"that" as a complementizer, exemplified below:

I believe that: she has arrived >> I believe [that she has arrived]

This change is often mentioned in textbooks and handbooks as an
example of syntactic reanalysis, but I am interested in references to
the specialist literature where such a change is actually documented,
in English or any other language. (An analogous change has been
claimed for German, for instance.)

The reason why I'm asking for references is that I'm skeptical that
such a reanalysis has occurred. I would also be interested to hear
whether anyone has argued previously AGAINST this reanalysis.

Subject: Tracing articles from "Second Language Research Forum"

Hi

I'm trying to trace the following articles on behalf of a student at
the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I have had no luck with our
normal sources (including Worldcat) and would appreciate any useful
information, including locations of the articles themselves, contact
details for authors or useful websites.

The articles are:

Braidi, S. "Issues in input: an integrative framework for analyzing
second language input" from Proceedings: Second Language Research Forum,
Michigan State University, 1992, pages 335-356.

Doughty, C. "Negotiation as an SLA process." Paper presented at the
inaugural Pacific Second Language Research Forum, University of Sydney,
1992. (U of Sydney's copy is missing.)

Braidi, S. "The role of negotiated interaction and learner attention in
L2 Grammatical Development." Paper presented at the Second Language
Research Forum, McGill University, 1994.

Doughty, C. "Finely-tuned feedback as focus on form." Paper presented
at the Second Language Research Forum, McGill University, 1994.

We would be very happy to request these through interlibrary loan if
there are any holding libraries. Please email me at
k.ralphsauckland.ac.nz.

Thanks
