Subject: Question: quantitative information

hello,

there is someone who knows where can I look for "quantitative"
information on languages (e.g. number of words, average number of
senses per word, etc.). I'm mostly interested in comparing italian and
english but every kind of information you can give me will be appreciated.
Eventually I will post a summary.

Thanks in advance,

-Massimo.

Message 2: request book information

Date: Tue, 22 Aug 1995 15:10:20 request book information

Subject: request book information

Earlier this morning I was on the phone with a friend of mine living
in South America. As we were talking in Spanish, he said: "si voy a
la liberi'a, comprare' el libro" which can be rendered into English
as "if I go to the bookstore, I will purchase it".

I found this expression a bit unusual so I asked him saying that he
really meant to say "si fuese a la libreri'a, comprari'a el libro" or
"if I were to go to the bookstore, I would buy it" to which he said
to me, "ah, the subjunctive is dead in Spanish!".

Weather this is a matter of subjunctive discussion or not, is
something to be left for another time. Nevertheless, he mentioned in
the course of our conversation that there is a book (a Spanish
translation of a French original) titled something like "la muerte
del subjuntivo" or "the demise/death of the subjunctive".

Does any one know of this book? Or books which may deal with similar
content? Any and all help will be appreciated.
