Subject: Zipf's law and proper names

At the moment I'm writing my thesis about named entity recognition in
texts. I wonder if there is any research on Zipf's law and proper
names (if Zipf's law can be applied to proper names as well). I have
been searching the internet and several libraries but haven't found
anything. Maybe someone at linguistlist can help me. Thanks a lot in
advance. Pia

Subject: Danish modal (discourse) particles

Dear all,

A student of mine is carrying out a research on modal (or discourse)
particles in Danish. We would appreciate any recent references on the
topic. If the number of answers is relevant, a summary will be posted
to the list.

Very thankful,
