Subject: Haber and Tener

I am looking for references on books and/or articles
about the difference between "tener" and "haber" as
auxiliaries or possessives in Spanish.

Subject: Quotation: meaning/logic

For a 1975 paper now being edited, I seek the source
of the following quotation: "the linguist wants to
describe not only the form but the meaning of
expressions in the language he studies; it is the job
of philosophical logic to say what it is to describe
meaning in language, and to question whether the
linguist's goal is achievable." Thanks for any help.
