Subject: Locating Samarin & Levelt
Greetings.

I am trying to get in contact with the following linguists:
William J.Samarin.
Claire (Claartje?) Levelt.

Neither of their e-mail addresses (from the linguist list) seem to
work. Could someone help me out? OR alternatively, could someone
supply me with a copy of Claire Levelt's paper 'Samoan Reduplication'
(ms, c.1990)? By the way, the last I know of these two people was
that William Samarin was at the University of Toronto, and Claire
Levelt was at Leiden University, Holland. Many thanks.

Paul de Lacy.
University of Auckland.

Message 2: phantom limbs

Subject: phantom limbs


I am starting a cross-linguistic survey of the phenomenon in phonology
that Hale (1973: p439, attributing the term to J. Keyser) calls the
'phantom-limb phenomenon' -- i.e. the survival in a preceding segment
of a feature or features that belonged to a following segment that has
been deleted.

I'd appreciate any examples, references, etc. to this phenomenon
(except for French nasalization, please) in any language, and I will
post a summary if there's interest.

Thanks,
Caroline Wiltshire

Subject: Qs: Kantian adjectives
Dear collegues,

we are investigating the group of adjectives below, which, for several
reasons, we would like to call "Kantian adjectives". We are able
ourselves to compare the adjectives to their Czech, German, Polish,
Slovene, Swedish, and Russian correspondents. It would however be very
useful for us to have access to translations also into a few other
languages.

We would like to ask those of you who know other languages to help us
by providing:

1) lexical translations of the adjectives, and especially
2) the negative morhological elements in the translated items (if any).

We will share the results of the inquiry via the listserver.

Sorry about the mysterious term "Kantian adjectives". If there is
interest in this choice, we are ready to explain the reasons for it.

Hope you will find the group inspiring...
