Message 1: query: zero anaphora

Subject: query: zero anaphora

For my dissertation on zero anaphora, I would appreciate suggestions
for references. I am concentrating on pragmatics aspects in Nepali, but
all suggestions (references on structure and/or on languages other than
Nepali) are welcome. Please reply to my temporary e-mail address
(below), and I shall post a summary later.

Thank you.

Message 2: Acquisition of French negatives

Subject: Acquisition of French negatives

 Does anyone have any references for acquisition work on
 sentential negation in French. In addition to general
 issues, I'm particularly interested in finding out whether
 children acquiring French as L1 go through a stage of saying
 things like (1), i.e., strings in which *pas* and other
 negatives, e.g., *jamais*, *plus*, *rien*, *personne*,
 cooccur:

 (1) a. Marie (ne) pleure pas jamais (M. never cries)
 b. Je (n') pas plus faim (I'm no longer hungry)
 c. Michel (n')a pas rien fait (M. did nothing)
 d. Je (ne) vois pas personne (I can't see anyone)

 Thanks,

Message 3: Gujarati references

Date: Wed, 6 Oct 1993 13:31:42 +Gujarati references
From: "Dr M Sebba" <eia023cent1.lancs.ac.uk>
Subject: Gujarati references

I am posting this on behalf of Arvind Bhatt, currently teaching a
course on Gujarati at this university, but not a subscriber to LINGUIST.

He is trying to compile a list of references on Gujarati, including
- suitable teaching texts
- linguistic descriptions/reference works
- history of the language

All contributions will be gratefully received. Thank you.

From: debbie mandelbaum <IDMGCCUNYVM.CUNY.EDU>
Subject: flsm II proceedings

Question-has anyone seen or does anyone have a copy of the proceedings
for the FLSM II held in Ann Arbor in 1991? I allegedly have a paper
in that volume but: (a) have never seen it, and (b) need the page #'s
of my article in that volume for reference purposes. Thanks to anyone
who can help!
