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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: acquisition of pronominal objects of prepositions

Subject: acquisition of pronominal objects of prepositions

I am researching the acquisition of pronominal objects of prepositions
in L2 English of native Spanish speakers for my master's thesis in
linguistics. For example, Spanish speakers have the tendency to say;
''I want to go with she.'' Instead of, ''I want to go with her.''
substituting the subject form for the object form. Does anyone know
of some studies that have been done in this area? They don't have to
be regarding Spanish speakers' acquisition of English, but that would
be helpful.

To whom it may concern:

Do you know of any comprehensive lists of words that are available on
the Internet and that enable one to conduct swift electronic searches
for morphemes and combinations of letters that appear in various words
in the lexicon? If so, I'd be most grateful if you'd let me know the
addresses.

Thank you.
