Subject: Linguistics for Chinese students

I don't have a solution to Warren Brewer's problem, but have a
related problem and request. I teach an introductory Syntax course
where about fifty per cent of the students (this year, at least) are
Chinese speakers - mostly Cantonese. I asked students on this course
to do a small scale study of the syntax of their own language: the
Chinese students complained that there was nothing in the library that
they could use to help them.

I would be grateful if anyone knows of coherent, up-to-date descriptions
of Chinese which are at a level accessible to undergraduates - preferably
at least some in English, so that I can read them myself!

Sentence Processing Conference about 3 years ago on word reading
in people with visual field neglect. anybody know if this occurs
in print?

Subject: query: aspect

Could someone please refer me to any literature on aspect, aktionsart
and tense from a machine translation standpoint? I would especially
appreciate work on English, German, Spanish and Greek.

Thank you.

Subject: Italian corpora

	Does anyone know how/where I could access on-line
	corpora in Italian? Preferably, the corpus would
	be representative of various text types but any
	leads would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
