Message 1: Coordinate Structure Constraint

From: Eung-Cheon Hah <echeoninterpia.net>
Subject: Coordinate Structure Constraint
Dear linguists,

Albeit the coordinate structure constraint and the parallelism
constraint are originally independent ones, it seems that there are
cases where they overlap. Is there any one who can tell me about the
overlap between these two? Are there any articles available on this
topic? If you happen to have such an article on hand, or at least know
where it is, I sincerely hope that you can tell me what is the
quickest way to get a copy.

Thanks,
Eung-Cheon Hah

Message 2: Q: Imperative compounds in other languages

From: Bob Keim <bkeimnufs.nakanishi.ac.jp>
Subject: Q: Imperative compounds in other languages

If one says "Sit down and shut up", both sitting down and being quiet
are being urged, recommended or commanded, but "spare the rod and
spoil the child", is a short way of saying that if one spares the rod,
one spoils the child. "Buy one and get one free." is somewhat similiar
in some ways; as is "Pour oil on water and it floats". Jesperson (_The
Philosophy of Grammar_) gives examples from Shakespeare and from
German, Danish, French, Latin & Greek. Well these are all
Indo-european sources; are there examples of compound imperatives
having a conditional-like meaning in non-Indo-European languages.

Message 3: phonological phrase

Subject: phonological phrase
Dear LINGUISTS,

In the line of duty, I am looking for definitions of and references
on the `phonological phrase'. It seems to me that the term is used
more often than it is understood or agreed on.
 I am particularly interested in the phonological phrase in Dutch,
English and French, but look eagerly forward to any other information
as well.
 Please send references or remarks to my personal e-mail address.
Of course, I will be happy to provide a summary of valuable responses
for the LIST.

Thanks!
