Subject: Info on Interlingua



Dear Linguists:

	I am helping a friend with a research paper on Interlingua and
Esperanto. The paper subject is: The difficulties of associating meaning
with the words of each language and how the encountered problems were
resolved. Specifically we would like to know how the meanings were devised.
Were they (meanings) taken from one language, i.e. English or German, or a
combination of languages or from some other source.

	Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please respond directly
to me. My email address is:
 hhobsonpilot.njin.net
 Sincerely,
 Helen M. Hobson

Subject: lexical trivium

i recently heard an aide in a nursing home in sullivan county, new york, say to
a patient:

'are you being have?',

where _have_ rhymes with _save_. the aide didn't appear to be joking and
the patient understood her in the intended way, i.e. as 'are you behaving?'
is this a known reanalysis? where else does it occur?
