Qs: Postmodifying Adjectives

Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.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.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Hello all,

A quick word to ask whether anyone knew about recent research on adjectives
in postnominal position, such as ''all things supernatural/fluffy'', ''a
thing possessed'', etc.? ''Monster'' grammars such as Quirk et al. or
Huddleston & Pullum are less than explicit on the subject.
