Message 1: Degree Adverbs references

Date: Thu, 27 Jan 1994 13:10:09 Degree Adverbs references
From: Luca Dini <diniCSLI.Stanford.EDU>
Subject: Degree Adverbs references


For the purpose of a PhD Thesis I would like to collect references
about degree words when used as VP modifiers. For instance:

Otto much resents the new taxes
 ---
The new dancers didn't impress us very much
 ---------
The Lions didn't win much this year
 ----
He accomplishes so little these day
 --------
Gary swam a little while he was in Jamaica
 -------
I rather suspected that he was lying
 -----
(examples from Ernst(1984))

I am interested in both syntactic and semantic literature.
Thanks,
 Luca Dini

Where can I find the Southwest Journal of Linguistics? I live in Memphis,
Tennessee, so I'd prefer somewhere close to home. However, I have not been
able to locate it at any of the academic libraries here in Memphis; hence the
question. I'm trying to track down this article in particular: Longacre,
Robert E. "Verb ranking and the constituent structure of discourse." Southwest
Journal of Linguistics 5 (1982): 177-202. Thanks for any and all help!

Hello members of Linguist:

I would appreciate every information regarding finished or under
development products on machine translation especially on English-Spanish
or vice versa. If I receive enough information and there is interest,
I will send the result to the list.

Thank you in advance,

Subject: Chinese Dialectology Fieldworkers

I am a dialectologist just returned from fieldwork in the Chinese
countryside, and would like very much to hear from other fieldworkers
active in Chinese languages. My principal area of research is the Miin
and Hakka groups. Sincerely,
 David Prager Branner
