My query (see below) has generated a lot of interest but few leads. I
will post whatever leads I get. For the time being, I'd like to ask
for suggestions related to English dialects. I think the web is a
great resource for these materials and would like to encourage any
individuals who are so inclined to put materials on their web site,
because there is a lot of interest in and potential for these
materials right now. Amy Sheldon

Message 2: Phrasal verbs in many languages

Subject: Phrasal verbs in many languages

Does it occur in not European (Amerindian/ African etc.) languages the
construction verb+local adverb (as in the English phrasal verbs "to
give up" or in German "aufgeben") with no local sense? I am interested
in movement verbs and in no-moviment verbs, specially with the verb
"give". I would appreciate also to know how it works in Indo-European
and not-Indo European languages from India, in Hungarian in contrast
with the other Finno-Ungrian languages, in Turkish in contrast with
other altaic languages. Examples in Romance languages are also welcome
(specially if they are not Rhaeto-Romance). Mario Eduardo Viaro
