I am interested to know wheather there are any languages with verb-
object congruence other than direct objects, such as indirect or
prepositional objects.

Has anyone seen a French label for Bates and McWhinney's "competition model"?
If yes, I'd like to know where, and how exactly the label goes. Thanks!

I'm interested in the lexical aspects of so-called non-native Englishes.
In writings in this area one can easily find sporadic examples of
changes in word-meaning (with respect to the native varieties, i.e.
BrEng, AmEng, etc.) in these new Englishes, but so far I couldn't find
any substantial and exhaustive dictionary-like word-lists for a
particular variety of new English or for new Englishes in general. I'm
most interested to hear from anyone who knows of such work.

I'll summarise for the list if there's sufficient interest.
