Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.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.

From: Isabelle Barriere <barriere.isagmail.com>
Subject: Adjectives, General Linguistics and Acquisition

Does anyone know of any studies on:
1.a the cross-linguistic description of adjectives referring to internal
physical states (e.g. thirsty, hungry, full etc)
1.b The acquisition (incl. comprehension and production) of these
adjectives by children

2.a the cross-linguistic description of adjectives describing tastes (e.g
sweet, sour, bitter etc)
2.b the acquisition of these adjectives (incl. comprehension and
production) by children

Thanks in advance for your help. If there are enough replies, I will post
a summary.
