Subject: Literature on word formation change

Dear list members,

I am doing research on word formation change in German. So far, I
found lots of articles and books on phonological change, syntactic
change and change in general but nothing that deals with word
formation. Can anybody help me where to find litterature especially
on word formation change?

Thanks a lot, Carmen Scherer

Subject: Malagacy


Dear Colleagues - I would be grateful to be told how to say 'Some
young people like pop music' in Malagacy, and whether or not the
uttering of that sentence carries the conversational implicature that
not all young people like pop music. Can any reply be sent directly to
me? 

Thanks in advance, Yan Huang
