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.

Message 1: References & information for an Honours thesis

Subject: References & information for an Honours thesis

I'm doing Honours at Melbourne University and my thesis topic is
concerned with the use of adjectives as post-head modifiers of verbs
instead of adverbs (the dropping of the -ly adverb suffix). I'm
exploring where this process occurs syntactically, when it occurs
socially and in which mediums it occurs (eg. speech, tv, email etc). I
am hoping for any useful references of previous research in this area.
