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

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.

N of N Phrases
Message 1: N of N Phrases
From: Anastasia Khudyakova <khudyakovagmail.com>
Subject: N of N Phrases
I am conducting a research in English linguistics, which concerns with a
certain type of N of N phrases like ‘a giant of a man’, ‘a love of a
child’, ‘a monster of a dog’, etc. I collected a considerable amount of
data with the examples of use of such types of phrases from the fiction
books, but I would like to have a native speakers’ response (which is quite
hard to do in this part of Russia I’m living in). What I need is just a
small form of 10 sentences with the gaps that has to be filled; it is
available at http://www.globalnetworksystems.com/Form.doc .
I'd be grateful if you could help me with that.
With best wishes,
