Subject: Greenberg's dominance

Greenberg 1966 proposed two notions, dominance and harmony, to explain
word order universals. The notion Harmony was pursued to a great
extend in the literature. However, few discussions on the notion of
Dominance, as far as I know. I would like to collect the research
materials on Dominance. I will summarise the responds if any.
