Message 1: Specificity

Subject: Specificity

Dear Listers:

I am looking for definitions of 'specific' versus 'non-specific' in
the noun phrase, and more particularly, how these terms intersect
with/differ from 'definite' versus 'indefinite.' Does anyone know of a
reference that lays it all out clearly?

Thanks in advance.

Subject: French Verbs

Ladies and gentlemen,

Could you please send me information concerning the french verbs
"disparatre", "apparatre" and "paratre" for my Magisterarbeit (it's a
scientific work about the change of the auxiliaries "avoir" and "tre"
and the diachrony / development of these french verbs).

Thanks for your help and greetings from Stuttgart,

Birgit Grimminger.
