Message 1: non-IE HAVE

Subject: non-IE HAVE



I'm looking for as much information as possible about HAVE type verbs
(ie verbs with a 'possessor' subject and a 'possessed' direct object)
cross-linguistically. I have provided a list of typical uses of HAVE
in English, which could come in useful for comparison.

1 Lucy had a brother
2 Lucy had a baby
3 Lucy had a top hat on
4 Lucy had her car fixed (causative)
5 Lucy had her car stolen (experiencer)
6 Lucy had succeeded
7 Lucy had to go to Paris

Examples from non-indoeuropean languages in particular would be most
gratefully received.

Thank you for your help- I will post a summary later.

I am looking for descriptions of external sandhi in American English,
especially such pronunciations as are often written "gotcha" (for
canonical "got you"). I will post a summary to the list if there is
sufficient interest.

I am involved in researching the work of M. A. K. Halliday. Does
anyone know if there are any official or private collections of his
writings anywhere?
