Subject: Searching paper titles from 34th STC in Kunming

 I am still interested in any information on the 34th Sino-Tibetan
Conference in Kunming: program, abstracts, or proceedings, including
any plans for publication of the latter. If anyone else is interested
in details of that meeting, you are welcome to get in touch off list
and I can pass you whatever info I receive. Or, if I receive many
queries about the Kunming meeting/proceedings, I will post the
information to Linguist. Many thanks! Grace Wiersma

Subject: Prepositions

Hello,

I work on a subject concerning the evolution of prepositions from
Latin to Romance languages and I need your advice.

I have used as reference bibliography Pottier's "Syst�matique des
�l�ments de relations" (1962) and Cervoni's "La pr�position" (1991),
which is much endowed to the psychosystematic research. I need to
find further bibliography on preposition, so that I can make up a
clear system with precise principles.
 
I would be grateful if someone could suggest even Indo-european
treatises on the subject. Unhappily external circumstances have
prevented me lately from working on Indo-European and ancient Greek,
but any similar (bibliographical) hint could help me to understand the
parameters of evolution, even cognitive mechanisms of organizing the
prepositional system.
 
Thanks,
Ioana
