Message 1: Addresses

From: Bill Bennett <WAB2phx.cam.ac.uk>
Subject: Addresses

I owe an offprint of thanks to the following:
 J. Bresnan; O. Jaeggli; G. Pullum; P. Postal.
Unfortunately, there has been a delay in publication of the article in question
and I am now no longer sure of the addresses of these colleagues (none of whom
seems to be on the copy of the list of linguist subscribers that I own).
 I realize that my offprint is not what they are waiting for, but needs must
and should. So, if anyone knows the addresses for sure perhaps they would send
them to me direct.
Thanks in advance
Bill Bennett.

A colleague in Russia (Veronika Teliya) needs to contact W.Eismann

Message 3: Help! Superiority in Hebrew

Date: Sun, 10 Oct 93 00:34:38 -0Help! Superiority in Hebrew
From: <kitaharahusc.harvard.edu>
Subject: Help! Superiority in Hebrew


Dear Hebrew Linguists,

I need your help!
Could you give me your judgements on the following eight sentences?
In addition, any relevant information regarding superiority phenomena
in Hebrew would be very helpful.

Q1: Can subject NP follow VP-adverb?

(1) ['et ma] 'axal Dani bi-zhirut
 acc what ate D with-care
 'What did Dani eat carefully?'

(2) ['et ma] 'axal [VP bi-zhirut Dani]
 acc what ate with-care D

Q2: If subject NP is a wh-phrase, can it follow VP-adverb?

(3) ['et ma] 'axal mi bi-zhirut
 acc what ate who with-care
 'What did who eat carefully?'

(4) ['et ma] 'axal [VP bi-zhirut mi]
 acc what ate with-care who

Q3: Shlonsky (1987) notes the following contrast:

 (i) 'et ma Dani 'axal? (ii) *'et ma mi 'axal?
 acc what D ate acc what who ate

 Are superiority effects absent (or present) when wh-phrase is
 extracted from the embedded clause?

 (matrix verb precedes matrix subject in (5) and (6))

(5) ['et ma]1 siper mi
 acc what say who
 [CP se-axal Dani [VP bi-zhirut t1]]
 that-ate D with-care
 'What does who say that Dani ate carefully?'

(6) ['et ma]1 siper mi
 acc what say who
 [CP se-Dani 'axal [VP bi-zhirut t1]]
 that-D ate with-care

 (matrix verb follows matrix subject in (7) and (8))

(7) ['et ma]1 mi siper
 acc what who say
 [CP se-axal Dani [VP bi-zhirut t1]]
 that-ate D with-care
 'What does who say that Dani ate carefully?'

(8) ['et ma]1 mi siper
 acc what who say
 [CP se-Dani 'axal [VP bi-zhirut t1]]
 that-D ate with-care

Thank you very much.

I am from Zagreb in Croatia. As a senior student in English and French
I came to Trondheim in Norway to write my major in English. I was in
Norway one year in 1989. Therefor I got a scholarship from Culture
Department in Oslo. I shall compare English conjunction AND with
Norwegian conjunction OG and four Croatian equivalents I, PA, TE and
A. I am therefor very interested in all works about this conjunction.
I would like to get as many information as possible about it.

 Your Sincerly,

 Zaklina Marin
