Message 1: Numeral Classifiers

Subject: Numeral Classifiers

Dear linguists:

I am conducting research on numeral classifiers. As far as I know
(and as I claim in my forthcoming paper), numeral classifiers directly
go only with weak determiners but not with strong ones (as these are
defined by Milsark (1974)).

Since I have limited data, I would appreciate it if anyone could
supply me any information regarding this matter (e.g. native
speakers'judgments, or references if such exist).

Thank you very much.

Dear Linguists,

Maybe somebody could help me: what would be the translation in english
of the french words "actant" and "actance"?

Thank you for your answers.
