Message 1: Frequency Counts

Subject: Frequency Counts

I am interested in obtaining frequency counts for English
demonstrative expressions: the determiners 'this' and 'that', their
plurals 'these' and 'those', nominals constructed from them (e.g.,
'this building', 'those books'), and the adverbs 'here', 'there',
'then', 'thus' and 'so'. Does anyone know how I might obtain this
info? More generally, does anyone know how one obtains frequency
count info?

Please reply directly to my address (rlarsonsemlab1.sbs.sunysb.edu)
not to Linguist. I will post a summary of the replies on Linguist.

Subject: temporal expressions

Could anybody here point me to the works done in the origin of the temporal
expressions like 'yesterday', 'today' and 'tomorrow' in Mandarin as well as
in other Chinese dialects. Thank you in advance.

Message 3: Q: French textbook

From: Ellen Kaisse <kaisseu.washington.edu>
Subject: Q: French textbook


A Francophone student in my introductory historical linguistics class
asks if there is a good textbook in historical linguistics written in
French (and, I add, likely to be easily accessible in the U.S.). We
use Hock's admirable text, and I don't expect to be able to replace it
for her, but the closer to his coverage, the better.

Subject: slavic palatalizations

I am teaching the thorny (so I think it) problem of slavic palata-
lizations,in particular the Ukranian case.I am not an expert in such
a field,does any one know recent references on the topic? particularly,
within autosegmental phonology.
