Who coined the term "Poverty of the Stimulus"? Chomsky? Can someone give me
the reference? What was the original reference to "Principles and Parameters"?

Thank in advance for any pointers,
dP

From: Tamara Pittman <pittmanosuunx.ucc.okstate.edu>
Subject: Muscogee Indian Language

I am a grad student working with the Muscogee language for a special
project. Does anyone know of a previous linguistic analysis of this
language, either in Georgia, Florida, or Oklahoma...perhaps? I would
greatly appreciate any references. Thanks.

Is anyone aware of a case where there is obvious movement of a
constituent within P' to spec-PP?? ie: [ XPi [ P [... ti ...]]]

Has anyone suggested this construction for the Exceptional Case
Marking phenomenon??

Linguists,

 I am attempting to teach myself Urdu. Are there any particular
study materials you would recommend? I am especially interested in
books accompanied by audio tapes, since I have only limited access to
native speakers.
 I will post a compilation of the responses.
 Thank you!
