Subject: verbs of knowing


I am working on a dissertation about the syntax and the semantics of
the Spanish cognitive verbs 'saber' and 'conocer'. I would like to make
the comparison withe the English verb 'to know', therefore I am looking
for an article about the syntax/semantics of 'to know' .

Do you know of any article about 'to know' or any other cognitive verb
in a Romance/German Language?


thank you,

Message 2: Query about wanna, searchin' and spellings like that

Subject: Query about wanna, searchin' and spellings like that

Is there a term in English phonetics/phonology for the representation
of rapid (or relaxed) speech phenomena using ordinary spelling
(instead of phonetic transcription), examples of which would be
'wanna' (to represent not only /t/ deletion in both 'want' and 'to'
but also pronouncing shwa instead of [u]) and searchin' (to represent
pronouncing [n] instead of the velar nasal)?

Thanks.
