I'm seeking native speakers of Hindi from India who would be
willing to assist in a short and simple stress judgment

Message 2: verbal inflection

Subject: verbal inflection

Dear all,

I am a second year PhD-student at the university of Leiden ( the
etherlands). I am working in a project investigating syntactic
variation in the dialects of Dutch (SAND-project ). Recently I
stumbled upon a strange construction in which the pronominal subject
intervenes between the verbal root and the tense affix. I am now
looking for languages which have the same - or a similar -
construction. The orders I am particularly interested in are:

	verbal root - subject (pronoun/agreement) - tense (affix) 
	verbal root - subject (pronoun) - agreement (affix) 

When you know of a language which has this - or a similar -
construction, could you please respond 
to the following e-mail address : 

I will post a summary. 

	thanks a lot,

	Marjo van Koppen.
