Query:   Dear colleagues,

I'm writing an article on ''The concept of valency in standard grammars''
for the international handbook _Dependency and Valency_. It seems to me
that the concept, while being widely used in German grammars, is rather
rare in grammars of other languages; but maybe I've overlooked
something. Does anybody know a grammar of, say, English, French, Russian
(or any other language) that makes use of the concept? I'd appriciate
any help, and of course I'll send a summary to the list.
