Query:   I'm looking for an extremely small and portable recording device to use while
doing fieldwork this summer. The ideal machine would be pocket size, would have
a built-in voice activated mic, hi-sensitivity, have removable/replaceable
media, but ideally would not use tape (I don't like tape: a magnetic or optical
medium would be ideal.). I'd like to be able to just walk into a situation,
switch it on, and have it record everything that happens.

Any suggestions?

Italian Double-Infinitive Filter

I've been doing some work related to the ''double-infinitive filter'',
reported by Longobardi for Italian, which rules out (under some
circumstances) sequences consisting of more than one infinitive:

*Paolo potrebbe sembrare dormire tranquillamente
Paolo could INF-seem INF-sleep quietly

Does anyone know of other languages that exhibit such a filter? If
there's enough interest, I'll generate a summary.
