Message 1: written vs. spoken language

Subject: written vs. spoken language

Does anybody know any (empirical or theoretical) studies on the
difference between spoken and written language in English or related
languages? I am particularly interested in constructions allowing for
word/constituent order alternation and whether they behave
differently, but I will be grateful for any suggestions.

Many thanks,
Nicole Dehe

Subject: Remnant movement

I am researching remnant movement for a survey article and would
appreciate being informed of relevant work on the topic.

I will be compiling a bibliography and would be grateful to receive or
be pointed to articles or other works, preferably with full
bibliographic references. I can use EndNote in case anyone wonders.

Please send information to me at

I will post a summary.
