Summary:   A FEW MONTHS AGO I POSTED A SUMMARY DEALING WITH THE GO+AND+VERB
CONSTRUCTION AND SIMILAR CONSTRUCTIONS IN ENGLISH AND OTHER LANGUAGES
(LINGUIST 9-1298). THE SUMMARY TRIGGERED MORE REPLIES THAN MY ORIGINAL
QUERY, SO AN UPDATE SEEMS TO BE IN ORDER. THE REPLIES DEALT WITH THE
FOLLOWING TOPICS: (I) MORE ON THE GO+AND+VERB CONSTRUCTION AND RELATED
CONSTRUCTIONS IN ENGLISH, ESPECIALLY THE UP+AND+VERB CONSTRUCTION;
(II) MORE ON V+AND+V CONSTRUCTIONS IN SCANDINAVIAN LANGUAGES; (III)
COORDINATED VERB CONSTRUCTIONS IN FINNISH; (IV) V+AND+V CONSTRUCTIONS
IN ROMANCE LANGUAGES; (V) GERMAN INFINITIVAL COMPLEMENTATION AND (VI)
COORDINATED VVERB CONSTRUCTIONS IN JAPANESE. I HAVE SIMPLY SUMMARIZED
THE REPLIES UNDER THE HEADINGS OF EACH RESPECTIVE LANGUAGE (THIS
MESSAGE SHOULD BE READ AS AN EPILOG TO THE ORIGINAL SUMMARY).
