Message 1: Phrases and Mental Lexicon

Date: Fri, 3 Apr 1998 12:26:39 +0200
From: Udo Lakemper <>
Subject: Phrases and Mental Lexicon

Some weeks ago I asked for information concerning phrases / idioms and
the mental lexicon. I received a number of very useful mails. But
unfortunately - due to a removal - I have been cut off from electronic
communication. Therefore this summary reaches you with some delay. If
you need further information - please contact me.

I do apologize!
Best wishes
