Query:   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.

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.
