Dear readers

My research group wants informations concerning "small talk". Is there books
or articles concerning precisely this subject? Our bibliographical search is
actually vain.

Thank you

 I am currently working on a dialectology project (Atlas Linguistico
Galego). I have two helps: a database (Access 2.0, Microsoft) and a
mapping program (MapInfo 3.0). Any information can you give me about
others projects or software programs would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Message 3: Conjunction questions

Date: Tue, 2 May 1995 12:39:06 -Conjunction questions
From: Christopher Culy <culyCsli.Stanford.EDU>
Subject: Conjunction questions

Content-Length: 1517

Hi all,

A quick couple questions about conjunction.

First, are there languages which allow for conjunction to be done by
simple juxtaposition with no conjunction at all? I'm particularly
interested in conjunction of independent clauses (excluding things like:
Pat having left, we're free to say what we want)

Second, are there counterexamples to the following claim:

If two or more sentences are conjoined with conjunction(s), then a
conjunction will occur adjacent to either the first element, the last
element, or both.

This would predict that we might find the following types:

X X X C X
X X X X C
C X X X X
X C X X X

but not :
X X C X X

Please reply to me personally, and I will summarize for the List.

Thanks in advance.

I have a student who is interested in exploring the language of
mediation, something I know absolutely nothing about. I would appreciate
any leads I can get regarding articles and books that she can consult.
Thanks very much.
