Message 1: Languages With Free Word Order

Subject: Languages With Free Word Order

Dear All,

I am trying to find if there is agreement on what languages of the
world have 'free word order', or are 'non-configurational' and
possibly, what criteria could be agreed on to determine if a language
has 'free word order' or not; alternatively - and more reasonably - to
what degree the word order of a language is determinate and to what
degree it is dependent on intra-sentential syntactic factors.

Ken Hale lists a few languages in his 1981 paper on Warlbiri
(besides Warlbiri: Navajo, Lakhota, Japanese, Winnebago) he feels
are non-configurational. Do you agree?

What languages do you consider free word order? Why?


No apologies about posting this to LINGUIST rather
than walking over to the book stacks. Summary gladly provided.

To the Linglist!

Information about current research on Modern
Hebrew linguistics is practically unaccessable for
those living outside Israel. I have a colleague,
who is doing research on Modern Hebrew syntax.
Please send information about current projects,
Brit Ivrit ha-Olamit-congresses and corresponding
activities. Information in Hebrew is also welcome.

Looking forward to your answers
