Linguistic LingField(s):  Syntax

Query:   DO SUPPORT, ADJECTIVES AND VERBS

1. ADJECTIVES and VERBS mcgee@netactive.co.za

I would like to find out about languages that show similar morphology for

adjectives and verbs where these are otherwise distinct classes. I'm

particularly - but not exclusively - interested in any cases of similar

morphology for stative verbs and adjectives.



BORROWED ADJECTIVES mcgee@netactive.co.za

Are there languages that treat adjectives that are either code mixed items

or borrowings differently from native adjectives? e.g. would 'fine' or

'sure' - as in 'I am fine', 'He is not sure' - have the same treatment in a
language that is not English as the other 'native' adjectives?



DO SUPPORT in negatives mcgee@netactive.co.za

What other languages, besides English, have the equivalent of do support in
the formation of negatives? e.g. I saw the man I did not see the man. What
is the equivalent that is used?



Please note that all these queries relate to a general area of research I am

presently involved in. I have previously asked a couple of similar questions

which I don't think were very clearly put. Will post a summary of

everything to this query.
