Message 1: aspectual role of direct objects

Subject: aspectual role of direct objects

I am looking at the role of direct objects in determining the
availability of delimited/telic vs. undelimited/atelic aspectual
readings of an expression. While a great deal of work has been done on
the effect of the quantization of the direct object (i.e., mass/bare
plural vs. count noun), I have found very little addressing the
following two distinctions:

a) mass noun vs. bare plural (both of which would be non-quantized)

b) definite vs. indefinite (both of which would be quantized)

I would be grateful if anyone can point me to work on either of these topics.

Subject: turkish frequent word list

Hi, I am looking for a list of Turkish frequent words (up to 500
words). Is there such a list in electronic version available
somewhere? Thank you for your kind information.
