Subject: request for software recommendation

I'd like recommendations for software (preferably inexpensive) for a
research project looking at fifth grade student writing. Most of the
analysis will be quite basic: number of total words/types/tokens, word
lists, and so on. Recommendations that include information on
additional features would be helpful, too.

Message 2: Expletive Infixation

Subject: Expletive Infixation

Hi. My question is regarding infixation and adequate articles written
on the topic. I'm an undergraduate student writing a paper on
Expletive Infixation and would like a lead to some papers. I've so
far discovered one, American Speech, McMillan, 1980. Today, I even
copied from Language, Prosodic Structure and Expletive Infixation,
McCarthy, 1982. However, I want to know if there are any more papers
written on the topic. Any help would be great. Thanks a lot.

Best,
Mircea
