Subject: Query - How many words do people know?

Greetings,

I've been looking for some literature pointing to the vocabulary
of the 'average' native speaker of English. The Oxford English
Dictionary contains 616500 meanings (including derivatives and
phrases), but I know most people don't know nearly this many.

Can anyone give me some figures?

Matt Adams.

I am looking for articles (in GB framework or not) concerned with Latin
reflexives (se and suus). Please provide me with bibliographical
information personally. I will post the summary later. Thank you.

Message 3: Query: Korean fortition

From: <g44409anucc.cc.nagoya-u.ac.jp>
Subject: Query: Korean fortition

One of my friends, who does not subscribe to LINGUIST, is looking for
articles written in English, Korean or Japanese (in any framework)
concerned with "Korean fortition". Comparative studies of Korean fortition
and Japanese sequential-voicing ("rendaku") will also be helpful. Please
provide me with bibliographical information personally. I will post the
summary later. Thank you.

Message 4: Fonts for drawing PS trees on a Macintosh

From: David Silva <davidutafll.uta.edu>
Subject: Fonts for drawing PS trees on a Macintosh


There was a time at which I knew of (and had access to) a font called
"P-Markers"; it had a variety of shapes (such as "/\" at different
lengths and angles) useful for drawing PS-trees and trees for phonological
representations.

When you do work in the syntax-phonology interface, this kind of font can
be very useful.

Does anybody know how to get a hold of this font, or for that matter, similar
fonts, or for THAT matter tools useful for drawing such trees?

Many thanks.
