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.

I'm an undergraduate research assistant for Lenore Grenoble and Jerrold
Sadock at the University of Chicago working under NSF Grant #1056497 ''The
lexicon of a polysynthetic language.''

Right now, I'm just going through the previous work on Greenlandic
lexicography and I've come across many citations for Lennert Olsen and
Hertling's (1988) ''Grønlandsk Tilhængsliste'' (which I've acquired in .pdf
formatting). But, Lennert Olsen and Hertling in turn have the following in their
bibliography, which I'm trying to pursue:

* Carl Christian Olsen & D. Collis: ''Tilhængsliste, med dansk oversættelse.''
Institut for Eskimologi. 1971. [230 pages.]

* Sven Kolte & Anne Timmermann: [Tilhængsliste.] Århus: Aarhus
Universitet. Afdeling for Grønlandsk. 1973. [88 pages]

I think the Kolte & Timmermann also goes by the title ''[Liste over ca. 1230
grønlandske tilhæng (affixer) med oversættelser]''

I've only been able to find copies in Danish libraries. And even when I just try
to to Google more information about them, or even just something else that
cites them, I just get their entries in Google Books just letting me know of
their existence.

If anyone happened to have procured an electronic copy of either of these
sources I would greatly appreciate it. Or, even if you're just familiar with them,
I'd still greatly appreciate you letting me know if they're worth pursuing if I
already have Lennert Olsen and Hertling's ''Tilhængliste'' (the only work I've
come across so far that cites them.)

Thank you,

Thomas Heins
