Summmary to English Strong V query

Many Thanks to the following people for their responses to my recent query
 regarding recent (since 1990) theoretical work which touches on English strong
 verb morphology: Bernd Wiese (Berlin, de), Chris Golston (Dusseldorf,de) Josep
 Tomei (Sapporo, jp), Lynne Cahill (Sussex, uk), Shannon McEwen (Alberta, ca.),
 Dirk Janssen (nijmegen, nl). (No u.s. responses oddly enough).
