Message 1: passives

Date: Wed, 28 Jun 1995 11:39:03 passives

Subject: passives

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a language in which passives are more frequent than
actives? It seems that it is possible to find languages in which actives are
more frequent than passives, and even languages in which passives do not
exist, but does the third case occur in any natural language?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated?

Subject: Chinese Corpus

Dear Netters,
Do you know of any Chinese corpus? I am doing some Chinese analysis and
would like to get hold of a Chinese corpus. It doesn't matter which Chinese
mode it uses (gb, big5, HZ, etc.) If you know one, please send me a message.
Thank you.
