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: Meanings of Particles in Phrasal Verbs
Date: 26-Jan-2006
From: Alison Crutchley <a.crutchleyhud.ac.uk>
Subject: Meanings of Particles in Phrasal Verbs

I'm doing some work on children's comprehension of phrasal verbs. I'm sure
I've heard about work looking at the meanings of the particles - e.g. 'up'
in 'drink up', 'write up', 'dream up', 'pay up' adding a sense of
finished-ness or outcome to the meaning of the verb - but I'm having real
trouble locating it. Database searches have brought up little so far except
a couple of articles in ELT journals which mention the meanings of
particles very briefly in a teaching context. Does anyone have any ideas
where to look/ who has worked on this?

Many thanks, Alison Crutchley

Dear coleagues,

Does anyone know about any Portuguese adaptation of 'The MacArthur
Communicative Development Inventory'? I will probably need to use an
adapted version of it in my MA research.

I thank y'all in advance,

Nice regards,
