Qs: NP's with +human feature; LaTex Stylefile

Editor for this issue: Steven Moran <stevelinguistlist.org>


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: NP's with +human feature

Subject: NP's with +human feature


In Turkish, I am coming up with intervention effects in relative clauses
 with +human NP subjects but not in identical clauses with nonhuman
 subjects.  For example, ''the mother whose child lions ate'' is good, but
 ''the deer whose fawn hunters ate'' is bad.  I have many such examples
 where the only difference is that the external argument is either + or
 -human.  Has anyone else noticed effects of a +human feature on an NP in
 any language?  Please email me at ilhanumd.edu. Thanks.

Message 2: LaTex Stylefile

Subject: LaTex Stylefile


I am publishing a monograph with John Benjamins in the Linguistics Today
series. The manuscript is written in LaTex and I have therefore opted to
provide a camera-ready copy rather than converting the manuscript to Word
or some other WYSIWYG format. John Benjamins, however, do not provide a
LaTex stylefile nor did web searches turn one up. Before attempting to
create one, I wanted to ask whether someone in the community has already
done this and would be willing to share it.

Many thanks,
Line Mikkelsen
