We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

I'm planning a study of lexical development in third languages and need 
to have access to a list of translation equivalent verbs in Spanish, 
English, German, and French, with argument structure and 
subcategorisation frames tagged, and with frequency data. Does anybody 
know of a corpus with these characteristics that I could use with a Mac?

Subject: Qs: Icelandic Raising Constructions

Dear Linguists,

I'm MAKITA Yuka, Chubu University, Japan.
I'm interested in a comparative study of raising constructions. 
And, now, I'd like some native speakers of Icelandic to make 
grammatical judgement of some existential constructions. 
If you can help my work, please e-mail me <>.
Thanks in advance,

Best wishes,
