Subject: German
Dear Linguists,

Are there any German natives willing to help me out on the following? What is
the status of the following examples and what are the differences (if any)
between them?

Wir werden bald sehen ob....

1) du oder die Kinder zuerst lacht
2) Hans oder ihr zuerst lacht
3) wir oder du zuerst lachst
4) du oder die Kinder zuerst lachen

Many thanks in advance,
Olaf

Message 2: query on lg typology

Subject: query on lg typology

I am working on differences in NP number agreement in Spanish varieties. A
parameter regarding Number has been tentatively postulated (Menegotto 1995),
and now I'm trying to elucidate de concomitant features associated to it.
To give support to (or reject) my hypotheses, I'd like to review the
appropriate literature on linguistic typology, particularly regarding
statistical universals. Could any of you give me some hint? I wonder if
something like 'the most comprehensive, updated and well atested list of
statistical language universals (with references to the sources)' exists. If
it does, please, e-mail me the reference. If it doesn't, please give me a
good piece of advice. :)
I'll post a summary. 

Thanks a lot.

Subject: seeking Bibliography on lg variation and change
dear linguists,
I am currently working on a projet on language variation and change in the
north of Brasil ( the state of Para), I would b e very much thankful to
anyone who could send me references on variation and language change done in
any part of the globe. I am trying to build up a hompepage in the internet
to make available to all researchers on this topic, a bibliographical
background.
Please send me all references you have on this subject in any language
(articles, books, theses, homepages...) directly to me (razkymarajo.ufpa.br).

I will send to the list the www hompepage when it is finished, or drop me a
word with your e-mail address so that I can send it to you.

thank you in advance
