Subject: Looking for Persian frequency data or text corpora

For a cross-linguistic (German/English/Persian) study investigating
semantic and conceptual features of lexical items in language
comprehension we are looking for frequency data for Persian words, or
electronically available corpora of Persian texts. I would be grateful
for any pointers to this kind of information. Please reply to me
individually, and I will post a summary of responses.

Subject: Implicit objects in English and Arabic

Dear Linguist,
	I am writing a paper on the implicit objects in English and
Arabic. Could you please suggest any recent works on this topic. I am
familiar with B. Levin's treatment of this topic in her English Verb
Classes.. (1993). I do appreciate any other suggestions especially
concerning Arabic.
