Dear Linguists,

 I was wondering if anyone is familiar with work done on stratificational
linguistics and the french language, and/or a stratificational model of languag
e
acquisition in french-english bilinguals. I will post a summary. Thank you

Where do I get information in Europe about Spanish literature corpora
(19.th and 20.th century) on cd rom?

Message 3: NP MOVEMENT IN ERGATIVE CONSTRUCTIONS IN ENGLISH

Date: Wed, 13 Dec 1995 18:26:21 NP MOVEMENT IN ERGATIVE CONSTRUCTIONS IN ENGLISH
From: Kara Harp Okulu Yabanci Dil Bolumu <yabdilata.kho.edu.tr>
Subject: NP MOVEMENT IN ERGATIVE CONSTRUCTIONS IN ENGLISH

Dealing with Chomsky's TG, more specifically NP movement in ergative
constructions in English, I realized that it is worth dealing with the
comparative and contrastive study of those ergative verbs in English with
those of Turkish. Turkish seems not to be so rich in terms of the ergative
verbs.(Following a careful survey, I think I can find a few.)Along the lines
laid by Andrew Radford in his "Transformational Grammar", English in such
ergative constructions moves the Object NP to the Subject NP position, verb
undergoing no change at all. However,Turkish seems to change the active verb
either into passive or into causative. In order to make a contrastive
study, I need a native speaker of English to base on his/her intutition,who
will provide me with all (or almost all)ergative verbs and how they function
in English. All ideas from speakers of Turkish are welcome as well. Thanks
in advance.

Message 4: Random sampling

Date: Thu, 14 Dec 1995 14:40:52 Random sampling
From: "Pablo Suarez" <Pablo.Suarez_Maldonadosoc.uu.se>
Subject: Random sampling


 I would greatly appreciate receiving information on
 any software (comercial or not) for random sampling
 of text units (e.g., paragraphs) from large corpora.

 Thanks in advance.
