Message 1: Need: Word Order Classifications

Date: Tue, 16 May 1995 17:25:56 Need: Word Order Classifications
From: "Mic" <blahambbrubc.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de>
Subject: Need: Word Order Classifications

I have been working on a paper about Vennemann's theory of natural
serialization and am currently working on applying it to the current
status of languages.
I have in mind to compile a list of all European languages, stating
which basic word order they have and how consistent they are.
Is there already such a list anywhere, and if where; and if not,
where could I retrieve this data from?
Would it be "fairer" to Vennemann if I didn't limit myself to
European languages?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank you,
Mic
PS: I hope I have selected the appropriate group. Please correct me
if I am mistaken!

Message 2: GB-based grammars of English

Subject: GB-based grammars of English

Does anyone know of any work being done on pedagogically-useful
descriptions of English grammar from the perspective of the GB
framework? Library shelves are full of 60's-era TG grammars
of English, compiled with various aims in mind. Most current work
in GB does not seem very language specific, and this is understandable
given the aims of GB, but is there language-specific work being done
by someone, or must I continue to use grammars with jazzy disco-looking
fonts and pictures of linguists on the back covers with sideburns
and bellbottoms?
