Subject: Reflexives in IE languages

Dear linguists, 

I am a PhD student and I am working on reflexives and intensifiers in
ancient Indo-European languages. I have some specific questions on
particular languages. Does anyone of you know anything about:

- reflexive uses of ''tanu'' in Avestan?
- reflexives in Old Prussian?

Moreover, I am interested in any specific work on reflexives and
intensifiers in ancient Indo-European languages.

Thanks a lot

Subject: Analysis of Newspaper Editorials

I am doing a review of the literature regarding the use of figuartive
langauge in newspaper editorials (specifically, The New York Times,
The Washington Post, a Bulgarian and a Russian paper). Could anyone
suggest previous research in this area? I am new to linguistics and
apologize for lacking the terminology to ask a more directed
question. I can be reached at: marfkenutk.edu. Thank you for your
help.
