We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

we would be grateful if somebody could give us some major references
about russian compounds. we are more interested in data than in
theories. as usual,, if we can get a reasonable amount of
information, we will post it to Linguist. 

many thanks Sergio Scalise

Subject: cognates

I am doing research on word associations among L2 learners and would
like to find out if there are any lists/literature on cognates and
non-cognates (especially) between English and other languages
(especially Chinese, French, German and some other major
languages). Thanks!
