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.
Is there anyone who could recommend references on the morphosyntax of isolating languages?
I'm now examining the syntax of adjuncts in Thai, particularly why clause-internal adjunction isn't possible, and I suspect that this partially has something to do with its being an isolating language. I've been trying to find references on languages of this type, especially how the lack of formal grammatical markings interacts with adjunction possibilities. Unfortunately, very little was found.
