Hi my colleagues,

As far as I know, there exist six modal verbs in German : duerfen,
koennen, moegen, muessen, sollen, wollen. I would like to do research
on the verb "sollen" in semantic framework. I am specially interested
in semantic fields of this verb, and I have the feeling that they are
much wider than it has been shown until these days.

So, I would like to know if there has been done some research on this
verb, also related to the other modal verbs in German.

Thank you in advance

Raija Solatie

Would anyone have some reference for concordance software
for Japanese? I am asking this on behalf of a friend from
the University of Sydney who would like some such software
for Japanese textual analysis.
