Does anybody know if there is a more or less complete
list of published reviews of
Chomsky's Syntactic Structures and Aspects
anywhere?

Does anybody have any references for pretransformational (pre-56)
analyses of voice or action nominalizations?

Subject: Q: Treatments of Unbounded Branching in Coordination

I am looking for references to

(a) Any work of Zelling Harris before 1956 which deals with
coordinate structures with an unbounded number of conjuncts.

(B) The history of transformational analyses of coordination. In
particular, it seems to me that the rules in Syntactic Structures
only will produce binary coordinate structures, even though Chomsky
argued that coordination requires unbounded branching.

(C) The history of transformational analyses of free word order.

Subject: Q: Biographies of Famous Linguists and Philosophers

I am looking for references to any works that detail the lives of
Bloomfield, Sapir, Bloch, and Harris, as well as biographic
material on Chomsky, Victor Yngve, and G. Harman.
