Summary:   IN LINGUIST LIST 9.1599 AND 9.1644, I SUMMARIZED THE RESPONSES I HAD
RECEIVED CONCERNING RESEARCH INTO POSSIBLE UNIVERSALS IN
MORPHOSYNTACTIC FEATURES (SIMILAR TO THE RESEARCH THAT HAS BEEN DONE
ON UNIVERSALS IN PHONETIC FEATURES).

SINCE THE LAST SUMMARY, A FEW MORE RESPONSES HAVE COME IN, WHICH I
SUMMARIZE BELOW. THANKS TO BRIAN ULICNY (BULICNY@LHS.COM), PRISCILLA
MCCOY (PMCCOY@SOCRATES.BERKELEY.EDU), AND JOERG KELLER
