Message 1: Pro-Cite Bibliographic Software

Subject: Pro-Cite Bibliographic Software

Linguist List Subscribers,

The Austronesian email list is developing an on-line bibiliography and
needs information about Pro-Cite, a desktop bibliographic software.

We want to support downloads in something that Pro-Cite can import but
none of the subscribers seem to have and use a current version.

Endnote has won the marketing war at my own institution and we have a
download for that software under development. But finding someone who
is an avid user of Pro-Cite has been a more elusive task.

I would be grateful for correspondence from someone using a current
version of Pro-Cite, especially someone who is fairly content with it
and commited to its long-term use.

Message 2: voicing and nasal assimilation

Date: Sat, 11 Nov 1995 13:30:29 voicing and nasal assimilation
From: Amalia Gnanadesikan <amaliagrci.rutgers.edu>
Subject: voicing and nasal assimilation


I'm looking for a language which has voicing assimilation in
obstruents (so voiceless -> voiced/_ voiced) and which also has voiced
obstruents assimilating to nasals and/or other sonorant consonants.

Does anyone know of a language where these assimilations are paired?
If so, please let me know at amaliagrci.rutgers.edu.
 Thanks!

Message 3: INQUIRY ON THE ACQUISITION OF CASE MARKING

Date: Sat, 11 Nov 1995 09:52:12 INQUIRY ON THE ACQUISITION OF CASE MARKING
From: Younes Mourchid <younesmsiu.edu>
Subject: INQUIRY ON THE ACQUISITION OF CASE MARKING

 Dear Linguists,

 I'am currently working on a Master thesis the object of which is
the Acquisition of Case-Marking in Moroccan Arabic. My bibiolography
list is needy of references relative to previous studies which
investigated the acquisition of case-marking in other languages, or
precisely in a Semitic language. I will be grateful to anyboby
pointing out to me any of these references might they have be carried
out within the framework of 1st or 2nd language acquisition. Please
send your responses directly to the e-mail address below.

 Thank you in advance for any help you'd provide!

 Younes Mourchid.

Message 4: qu: pronominals & verb deletion

Date: Fri, 10 Nov 1995 23:47:05 qu: pronominals & verb deletion
From: Soren Wichmann <2020swucsbuxa.ucsb.edu>
Subject: qu: pronominals & verb deletion


I am investigating what criteria there might for distinguishing
between person agreement and true pronouns in languages which have
person affixes or clitics attached to the verb, and need some help. My
hunch is that the possibility for verb deletion under identity in
coordination might offer a criterion. You can be of immense help in
resolving this issue by providing me with a piece of data in your
native language or a language that you are familiar with (whether it
be some European language or a more exotic one it is equally welcome
in the sample).

1) Please translate the following sentence or a similar one:

 Peter brought the beans and I the rice (context: there was a
 party and everybody brought something for the meal)

2) State explicitly whether or not the verb can be left out of the
second clause

3) Can an inflected verb alone make up a sentence in the language?

4) State whether or not there are person markers attached to the verb
and what they are. State also what the free pronouns are. (You are
welcome to answer this question by simply giving me an exact reference
to an appropriate published description.)

Any thoughts on these matters are of course also welcome, but just the
bit of data would be a greatly appreciated contribution. I shall
forget neither acknowledgements nor a summary.
