Message 1: Additive Connectives

Date: Sat, 6 Aug 1994 13:46:02 -Additive Connectives
From: Alex Eulenberg <aeulenbeindiana.edu>
Subject: Additive Connectives

I am writing an article describing the so-called additive connectives:
furthermore, moreover, besides, what is more, in addition. I've read what
appears to be a good cross-section of the relevant literature (discourse
theory, composition, rhetoric) and have not come across a single author
who treats these words as anything but synonymous. Is lexocraphy of
additives truly an untrodden field? If not, does anyone know of any works
that I should read before claiming the distinctions I have found between these
words as my own discoveries?

Message 2: Asking for help on "Grammaticalization"

From: Charatdao Intratat <g34citchulkn.chula.ac.th>
Subject: Asking for help on "Grammaticalization"

Dear Linguists,
I am working on Grammaticalization of Thai verbs. I found that some
articles refered to Lehmann, Christian. 1985. "Grammaticalization :
Synchronic variation and diachronic change." Lingua e Stile (20).
Unfortunately I don't know where to find the journal which is most likely
unavailable in Thailand. Any hint or suggesstion about this article
and/or other resources on this topic would be much appreciated.
Yours thankfully,
g34citchulkn.chula.ac.th

From: Kittredge Cowlishaw <kittcary.demon.co.uk>
Subject: Q: Phonetic accuracy in SLA

I'm collecting references to experimental work on the limits
of phonetic accuracy in second language acquisition, especially
prosodic features.

Besides references to publications, I'd welcome information on
current research, including contact names and e-mail addresses.

Many thanks,
Kitt Cowlishaw
