Message 1: Journal Volume on RT: Bibliography

Date: Sun, 07 Dec 1997 09:47:21 +0100
From: Yus Ramos, Francisco <us10075baco.alc.es>
Subject: Journal Volume on RT: Bibliography

Dear all,

As you probably know already, Dr. Jose Mateo and me are the editors of
a special volume of our International Journal REVISTA ALICANTINA DE
ESTUDIOS INGLESES (R.A.E.I.), which will be devoted entirely to
RELEVANCE THEORY.
	The deadline for submission of manuscripts has now expired.
Nevertheless, this volume will have a bibliographical section at the
end in which we will list, according to different topics, (most of)
all the bibliography available on RT (or studies taking RT as
theoretical framework). Headings for this bibliography will be, for
example:
	RT and grammar
	RT and the media
	RT and literature
	RT and humour
	RT and translation
	(etc.) We have already collected about 400 references for
this bibliographical list. If any of you has any RT-related study,
which you think is hard to find, and you would like it to appear in
this bibliography, please e-mail its reference to me as soon as you
can.

Cordially,
-

Message 3: Ellipsis in the Second Independent Clause

Subject: Ellipsis in the Second Independent Clause


I would appreciate anyone's comments who could tell me if the
following sentence is possible as it is, without restating the word
"weren't" after the word "all" in the second independent clause.
Could you be so kind as to tell me where I might find a rule for this
type of ellipsis?

"He might have even helped out a fellow just like before if the wood
weren't warped and it all so perverse"

Thank you and Happy Holidays.
