Notice: Hello,

I have been researching the syntax and semantics of Dari and Tajik
comparatives, focusing particularly on the inclusion of "kada" (done)
and "dida" (seen) in than-phrases. My research looks into whether
Dari/Tajik than-phrases support a clausal or direct analysis of the
degree quantifier -er.

I'm looking for native speakers of these languages who would be willing
to answer some questions about the acceptability of sentences. If you
know of anyone who might be willing to help, please let me know.

Thank you!
Ellen
