Subject: Qs: Aspect

Hi!

One of my classmates is in her Master Thesis writing about aspect
within NLP. I have promised her to ask if any of you have any
knowledge of somebody who also have studied this subject and tried to
implement it in a parser.

Please mail directly to my mailing adress:

Thank you,

Subject: Hjelmslev

Dear Linguist, 

Now I am reading Hjelmslev. It turns
out that Hjelmslev is a huge mountain of difficulty for me. It is
well-known that his long chain of terms is difficult to follow. Taking
some pains, this can be managed. My problem mostly lies in the lack of
source materials. That's why I bother you again and again. Now I have
the following questions and problems. 
1. Is Resume an English version of his Essais Linguistiques 
(The former is not accessible here. The later and its German 
version I have got)? 
2. Can you help me get the abstracts on Hjelmslev in LLBA between 
67-80? 
3. How can I get references on Hjelmslev between 62-67? 
4. Do you know any access tonow active linguists or faculties of/on
Copenhagen School?
Whatever help will be cordially welcome.
yours 
Wang Zhenyu

Subject: who/whom alternation

If you are a native speaker of English and accept
the following sentence, please help me with judgement on a few more
examples.

 I wonder whom you believe bought the book.
 [The wh-word being 'whom', not 'who', is important.]

Contact me at: htanakaosk.3web.ne.jp

Any reference to such case alternation accompanying wh-movement
is also welcome.
