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 <DUBINSK@VM.SC.EDU>
Recategorization of prepositions as complementizers
(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

Thanks again,
- Neil
