Summary:   DEAR LINGUISTS,
ABOUT A MONTH AGO, I POSTED A QUERY ON THOSE STUDIES OF SERIAL VERBS
CONSTRUCTIONS. A FLOOD OF REFERENCES RUSHED IN, AND MY COMPUTER HAS
BECOME THE STROEHOUSE OF SVCS REFERENCES. I SUSPECT THERE MUST BE
HUNDREDS OF ITEMS OF REFERENCES EVEN THOUGH THERE MIGHT BE SOME
OVERLAPS. THOSE STUDIES ASSUME DIFFERENT THEORECITCAL MODALS AND ARE
BASED ON A WIDE RANGE OF LANGUAGES. I MUST SHOW MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE TO
THE FOLLOWING FRIENDS:
ELIZABETH GRACE WINKLER;
CHRISTOPHER D. MANNING;
DR. PETER G. LIU;
MARTHA MCGINNIS
RICH CAMPBELL
ERIC SCHILLER
ANNABEL CORMACK
ASYA PERELTSVAIG
MARC PICARD
NOTE: I HAVE TRIED TO CONTACT ERIC SCHILLER, BUT IN VAIN. WHAT'S MORE, I
THINK THAT THERE MIGHT BE MORE FRIENDS WHO MAY WANT TO SEND ME FURTHER
DISCUSSIONS AND REFERENCES BUT LOSSE TRACK OF MY POST. I HOPE THIS
SUMMARY WILL INDUCE MORE DISCUSSIONS AND REFERENCES ON SVCS.

DUE TO THE LARGE PILE OF REFERENCES, I THINK IT IS FOOLISH FOR ME TO
PASTE THEM HERE SINCE IT WILL COST THOSE FRIENDS WHO HAVE NO INTEREST IN
SVCS A LOT OF TIME READING. HAVING THIS IN MIND, I'D LIKE TO RECOMMEND
THOSE FRIENDS AND LINGUISTS WHO HAVE SOME INTEREST IN SVCS STUDIES REFER
TO ME DIRECTLY, AND I WILL FORWARD THAT FILE EDITED IN WORD FORMAT OR
RTF TO YOU.

MANY THANKS AGAIN.

LI RULAI
