Message 1: Query: Language Acquisition

Subject: Query: Language Acquisition

I'm looking for references to work, which I've heard vague mention of, which
claims to have found a pattern in child language acquisition such that
constructions crucially relying on a sentential position associated with
the projection of a functional category (e.g., specifier of CP or IP) only
appear consistently after the functional category ITSELF appears consistently,
e.g., complementizers, inflected verbs.

Thanks in advance

Message 2: English word frequency lists

Subject: English word frequency lists


Dear LINGUIST netters:
 I am interested in finding some standard word frequency lists
for English. They are to be used as a basis in compiling English
teaching texts and in designing the English portion of the annual
college entrance exam in Taiwan. Any help anyone can offer would be
greatly appreciated!

Subject: Egyptology ...

Hello there fellow netters:

I am very interested in the studies of ancient Egypt, but have been
having troubles finding any good resources for Egyptology. Therefore I'm
sending out this message to see if anyone on the net knows of any good
SOFTWARE for the IBM PC (hopefully available via anonymous FTP) on
learning such things as Egyptian Hieroglyphics? Also, I would be
interested in any suggestions someone might have on
undergraduate/graduate programmes that I might look into, as well as
anything else (book, etc.) that you feel might be helpful to me in my
studies.

Please send all responses to my personal e-mail address.

Thank you very much, in advance.

With kindest regards,
Richard Tuttle
