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.

Message 1: word frequency list in Mandarin Chinese

Subject: word frequency list in Mandarin Chinese

I'm designing experiments for studying the acquisition of the Mandarin
Chinese ba-construction for my Ph. D dissertation. I'm wondering if I
can find a Chinese word frequency list somewhere on the web. Any
information will be greatly appreciated.

Dear colleagues:

Do you know any language without the existential verbs TO BE and/or TO HAVE?

Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation

Yours sincerely
