Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows
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.

Clitic Pronouns Reanalyzed as Agreement
Corpora High School

I am looking for any accounts of reduplicative clitic pronouns in French
(or another language) where the researcher analyzed the reduplicative
clitic pronoun as agreement.
Message 2: Corpora High School

Subject: Corpora High School
A growing problem in U.S. and probably the wider global community is the
difficulty our high school students have in accessing the academic register
and reading their textbooks. (This is actually also a problem for college
students but is an even bigger issue for high school students.) A number
of corpora have been collected on college textbooks so that the language
could be studied and vocabulary and grammar could be targeted for
instruction. However, I think few, if any, such corpora have been created
of high school textbooks--and I believe there would be an interest, since
high school teachers are always being told to ''teach academic language,''
so it would seem we should identify what that is, for them, based on the
textbooks they use.
Does anyone know of existing corpora based on high school textbooks? A
preliminary search I did revealed few results.
I'd appreciate any leads you might have.
Thanks in advance.
