Message 1: Online Discussion of Double Objects

Date: Tue, 23 Jan 2001 13:12:28 -0500 (EST)
From: Kieran Snyder <>
Subject: Online Discussion of Double Objects

This is invitation for all interested parties to join doglist, a listserv 
dedicated to the discussion of double objects from a variety of 
perspectives, including syntax, semantics, pragmatics, acquisition, 
processing, historical development, and morphology. Doglist started out 
as a group of students, faculty, and post-docs in the greater University 
of Pennsylvania linguistics community, and because so many non-local 
people have expressed interest in the group, we are planning an online 
component as well.

We will continue to have local meetings at Penn with advertised readings, 
but in addition, whoever presents will also post a brief message to the 
mailing list. This message will include a synopsis of (the relevant 
parts of) the meeting along with additional questions/criticisms/data 
which may be relevant to the weekly topic. In this way, discussion will 
be open to the wider community interested in double object constructions. 
We encourage everyone to post responses as appropriate (e.g. answers to 
questions, suggestions for further reading, further data, etc).

This discussion will ultimately be archived on the reading group webpage 
we are currently constructing. This page, which will also contain a 
general bibliography and weekly reading, will be accessible at

The mailing list address is If you wish to be 
added to the list, please contact me at Anyone 
interested in double objects is welcome to attend local meetings or 
participate in the listserv. It is our hope that other parties in other 
places will set up mirror groups for local discussion should there be 
sufficient interest.
