I've seen similar requests through Linguist, but I've never tried to post
anything before.
I am trying to locate the e-mail or snail-mail address of Patricia R. Chaput
concerning a presentation she made to a AAASS group in Nov. 1986. If anyone
knows where I can reach her, please notify me at gsavpiasucla.ucla.edu.

From: VIRGINIA C GATHERCOLE <GATHERCOSERVAX.FIU.EDU>
Subject: Inquiry about TESOL programs

The Linguistics Program at Florida International University needs
information on requirements for a Master's degree in TESOL at other
universities. For those of you associated with TESOL programs, we are
specifically interested in knowing what LINGUISTICS courses are required
for a Master's degree in TESOL at your university. Any and all information
would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Message 3: Inquiry: Recipient in Ditransitives

Date: Sat, 16 Oct 93 17:02:54 PDInquiry: Recipient in Ditransitives
From: Toshihide Nakayama <6500toshucsbuxa.ucsb.edu>
Subject: Inquiry: Recipient in Ditransitives


I am now working on a project on a typology of coding of the recipient role
in grammar. In this project I am looking specifically at the grammatical
status of the recipient role in ditransitive sentences (e.g. 'I gave him a
book') in terms of the core-oblique distinction. I would very much
appreciate your help collecting information from a wide variety of
languages.

The information I am intereted includes:

1) How can core arguments be distinguished from obliques in the language?
(e.g. indexing pattern on the verb, word order, constraints on passivization
or relativization)

2) Is the RECIPIENT in a ditransitive sentence grammatically treated as
core or oblique?

3) Is the PATIENT in a ditransitive sentence grammatically treated as
core or oblique?

4) Is there 'Dative Shift' in the language?

Please send the responses to:
Toshi Nakayama

I will summarize the responses and post it on the list.
Thank you for your help.

I've been asked my opinion of a Call For Proposals that just came
into our office, for "Isaac 94: Sixth Biennial Conference of the
International Society for Augmentative and Alternative
Communication", to be held October 9-13, 1994 in Maastricht. I
had to confess total ignorance of the society and conference, but
I hope some of my colleagues out there can enlighten me.
