Subject: Germanic Languages


I am looking for speakers of (any) Germanic languages who would be
willing to answer grammaticality questions from time to time during
June. These questions will concern Oblique Subjects and Control. I
particularly need information for Icelandic (despite the bibliography
available), Faroese, Dutch and Norwegian.

Thanks in advance for your help.

ear Netters on Linguist:

 I am going to do research on Passivizaion in Chinese. 

 Can anyone kindly tell me what are some materials that I should not

miss reading?

 Thank you so much.

Message 4: Q: keyboard software/Japanese

Subject: Q: keyboard software/Japanese
I am looking for a software utility which allows individual keyboard
configurations under Japanese Windows 3.1. I would like to customize
my keyboard-layout, so that I can use the same keyboard short-cuts for
individual diacritics of a certain TrueType-font throughout all my
Windows applications (includes Japanese, English and German programs),
similar to SIL's KEYMAN. Unfortunately, free- and shareware programs
for English Windows versions don't work with Japanese Windows (due to
Japanese Windows' two-byte character encoding). I have checked various
Japanese shareware-sites, mailing lists, newsgroups ... alas, to no
avail. I would greatly appreciate it, if some list-members could point
me to such (hopefully extant) rare gems of multilingual computing ...
