Qs: Double Accusative Markers; Functions of Keyword

Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton <jessicalinguistlist.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.

Dear Linguists,

Is anybody aware of any language in which a noun or noun phrase receives
double accusative markers for showing emphasis? Are you aware of any
literature review or scholarship in this regard?

I will be grateful for your helpful and isightful comments and hope to hear

Subject: Functions of Keyword



Dear Linguists,

Is there any relationship between a keyword (and its socio-semantic or
cultural load) and its frequency in the proverbs or sayings in which it
appears? Are you aware of any scholarship in this regard?

I will be grateful for your helpful and isightful comments and hope to hear
from you soon.

Sincerely,
