Subject: Carnie talk?


I am looking for information for a book about growing up in Detroit in
the 50's, specifically about a dialect/language called carnie-talk???
(carnival talk?? not sure of spelling), that is like pig-latin. Has
anyone heard of this or know where I could get information about it?
Any help would be appreciated.

Message 2: complementizer agreement in Scandinavian

Subject: complementizer agreement in Scandinavian

Dear all,

We would like to know if there are (older stages of) Scandinavian
languages and/or dialects which exhibit person and/or number agreement
on complementizers. If so, is there any literature about these
languages/dialects?


Thanks!
