OTOMI

Andrews, Henrietta THE FUNCTION OF VERB PREFIXES IN SOUTHWESTERN OTOMI
 1993 xi,120 pp. Paper ISBN:0-88312-605-2 $10.00
 Summer Institute of Linguistics and U Texas Arlington
 >Internet: academic.bookssil.org Syntax, Verb morphology
Many Otomi verb prefixes encode temporal and spatial settings that must
agree with deictic pronouns, noun determiners, certain verb suffixes, or
deictic adverbs in the context. While the study centers on prefixes, it
also introduces these other elements that carry deictic force.

VERBAL COLLOCATIONS (REDVC) Dictionaries
 John Benjamins 1993 ix, 269 pp. Langs

Recurrent combinations or collocations are peculiar to an individual
language and cannot be predicted by a learner of that language and are
perhaps the most troublesome barrier to true foreign language fluency.
This new bilingual dictionary is the first to systematically list over
20,000 such Russian combinations under 4600 main entries. Easy-to-use
look-up format.
