For that matter, does anyone know of a freeware
or shareware font editor ? Some of us would like
to design *our own* alphabets ..

Message 2: Question on Prep Phrases.

Subject: Question on Prep Phrases.

Hi, I'm a Linguistics major at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
Currently, I am working on my senior thesis dealing with location
phrases but I need somebody's help out there. Perhaps some of you are
familiar with MIT Prof. C.L. Baker and his textbook on English syntax
and Dr. Baker's use of the 'To-Test' to distinquish between verbs that
license Location Phrases and Motion Phrases. Anyway, does anyone know
of a simple syntactic rule like the 'To-test' but will instead signify
verbs that license Locative Phrases instead of Motion Phrases? Please
contact me at the address below. Thanks in advance.
