Summary:   HI ALL,

I'VE HAD A COUPLE MORE REPLIES TO MY QUERY SINCE MY LAST SUMMARY. HERE'S THE MAIN BITS:

THOMAS ERNST
YOU MIGHT ... BE INTERESTED TO LOOK AT A 1982 INDIANA UNIVERSITY DISSERTATION BY EVAN SMITH, ''RELATIVE THAT AND AS: A STUDY IN CATEGORY CHANGE''.

STANLEY DUBINSKY
RECATEGORIZATION OF PREPOSITIONS AS COMPPLEMENTIZERS (LINGUISTIC INQUIRY 26.125-137) BY MYSELF AND KEMP WILLIAMS DEALS WITH RECATEGORIZATION OF TEMPORAL PREPOSITIONS AS COMPLEMENTIZERS, AND BRINGS DIALECT AND HISTORICAL EVIDENCE TO BEAR ON THE ISSUE.

I MUST ADMIT THAT I HAVEN'T HAD THE TIME TO FOLLOW UP ALL OF THESE SOURCES, BUT THOSE THAT I HAVE I HAVE FOUND TO BE MOST INFORMATIVE.

THANKS AGAIN,
- NEIL
