I'm trying to get in touch with the Rosemary Leonard who wrote "The
Interpretation of English Noun Sequences on the Computer", published
1984 by North-Holland. At that time she was in Stockport, Cheshire,
England. E-mail address, phone number, fax number, or regular mail
address would be greatly appreciated.

Please send infor directly to me; my e-mail address is:

renryderidbsu (for bitnet users)

Thanks!

In Syntactic Structures, Chomsky's rule for coordinate structures
appears to generate binary coordinations only, e.g., (A and B), and
also ((A and B) and C), but not the unbounded flat structures we
have come to expect (e.g., (A and B and C)). Does anybody know
specifically where the change to the flat structures was
introduced?

Message 3: Query: Russian _li_

Date: Tue, 7 Dec 93 09:42:24 ESTQuery: Russian _li_
From: <Alexis_Manaster-RamerMTS.cc.Wayne.edu>
Subject: Query: Russian _li_

My recent query about analyses of Russian _li_ the yes/no
question particle which appears inside the clause, usually
in the second position, elicited a lot of mail questioning
my reference to discontinuity in this case. What I meant
was that it would be possible to analyze such sentences
as Prishol-li Ivan 'Did Ivan come' as consisting of two
constituents _Prishol Ivan_ 'Ivan came' and _li_, with
the former constituent being discontinuous. My query then
is: Has anybody proposed such an analysis either for Russian
or for another language that has a clause-internal question
marker?

Subject: Intervocalic /t/ - /th/ variation in AAVE

Does anyone know of a study of intervocalic /t/ - /th/ variation
in AAVE? I am particularly interested in the medial consonant in
the word "nothing." I would also be interested in knowing of
ongoing or current research that is not yet published. Thanks.
