Is there an article or two on formal semantic treatment of
imperatives? I'm looking for something which does for imperatives what
Karttunen 77 did for questions. Thank you in advance.

Dear readers 

I am beginning to work on vocabulary acquisition and was
wondering if anyone knows of a) an official Japanese translation of
the Kent-Rosanoff word associations list, b) of any other word
association tests developed for Japanese. Thank you for your help.
