Message 1: Rapanui

From: <CAROLGCC.UTAH.EDU>
Subject: Rapanui


Further to my earlier request for research sources for my current
"Structure of Austronesian" course, I am now soliciting suggestions
for sources on migrations to Easter Island, especially sources that
also discuss the linguistic aspects of Rapanui and its closest relatives
from a diachronic point of view.

Thanks to all who replied to the query about switch reference in
Austronesian.

Message 2: Italian Syntax

Subject: Italian Syntax

 As 'belle' is given as an adjective that normally precedes the noun,
can someone explain the constructions:

a. Ci sono molte belle cose.
'There are amny beautiful things.'

b. Ci sono cose molto belle.
'There are very beautiful things.'

Why does 'belle' move in b. ? What motivates it? And where is the head in
X-bar notation in Italian?

TIA,
Adriane Moser

Hello!

Does anyone have references on the semantics of measure phrases
(3 gallons of milk, half a gallon of milk, etc.)?

Thank you,

From: AHARRIS - Alan Harris <VCSPC005VAX.CSUN.EDU>
Subject: textbook (elementary) for various discourse analyses

For Fall semester, 1994:
I am looking for a good, clear, relatively elementary textbook that surveys,
explains, poses problems in the various types of discourse analysis.
Could I have some suggestions from the list? You can reply privately. Thanks
in advance, Alan
