DO SUPPORT, ADJECTIVES AND VERBS
1. ADJECTIVES and VERBS firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
