Linguistic LingField(s):   Morphology

Summary:   I am seeking information on how widespread, typologically and
geographically, is the occurrence of a single lexeme for 'face' and
'eye'. E. Andersen 1978 (in vol. 3 of _Universals of Human Language_)
reports it for Sango, Tarascan, and 30 or so Mayan languages. It has
also been reported for Ijo and for Berbice Dutch Creole.

Where else is it found?

Thanks for your help. I'll post a summary if interest warrants.
