Content-Length: 1460

The time has come for my annual request for suggestions about an
undergraduate text in syntax. I used Napoli's book last fall, and
although I like the book very much, it posed problems for my students
that I would rather not deal with again. My second choice would ordinarily
be Radford, but I am quite disgusted with the way Cambridge University
Press deals with people and I prefer not to give them my business. So
if anyone has any experience with another text, I would appreciate
hearing about it. Please reply to me directly and I will post a
summary to the list.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Dear Netters:

I would like to make a list of the addresses of MOO sites for (foreign)
languages. Could anybody on the list provide me with the MOO site address
(together with a port number) that you know of, and, preferrably, with a
brief description of the site? Please respond personally. I will post a
summary later. Thank you in advance.


Sincerely,

I am looking for an e-mail address for Mary M. Clark, author of _The Tonal
System of Igbo_. I retrieved the LSA address book from the Listserver, and the
address for her on that list is m_clark1unhh.unh.edu. Trying to use this
address, however, returns an error message. Does anybody have her correct,
current address? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

I will soon be posting a summary of the information I have
gathered on the replcaement of numerals between 1 and 10
through borrowing or neologism. However, I have found no
examples of a complete replacement of '1' by a borrowed word
(there many involving neologisms, though) or of the complete
replacement of '2' by either a neologism or a borrowing in
any language families other than Afro-Asiatic and Altaic
(and I would be grateful for any suggestions on these cases).

I will post the final results soon.
