Hi Everyone,

I'd like to start by thanking all those who responded to my previous
inquiry about Grant Goodall. Thanks for your help, I really appreciate
it.

I Have another question to ask:

I have been looking for anything on adverbs in Arabic. Has anyone come
across this topic before?

Thanks in advance,

I would like to know the origin of the paper metaphor used to explain
Saussure's theory of signs. It is the metaphor where sign and object
exist as two sides of a single sheet of paper so that it is impossible
to cut through the paper without simultaneously cutting through both
sign and object. If anyone could post the source for this metaphoric
discussion, I would much appreciate it.

Thanks.

Subject: Qs:Operational definition of stylized texts

Dechant (1991) states that readers will have difficulty reading and
comprehendiong texts if they are too complex, convulted or
stylized. The complexity of texts can be explained by resorting to the
structure of stentences. How can convulted or stylized texts be
operationally defined?
