Subject: Stylistic Features in Modern Arabic


Dear Colleagues

One of our TAs is planning to do his graduate studies in
STyLISTICS. His background is Arabic, i.e. he has an M.A. in Arabic
Lang and lit. His main concern is the stylistic features in Modern
Arabic poetry (mainly Omani and Gulf poetry) in the 20th century. He
is looking for a good school(in USA or UK) which can offer this so he
can apply to get an admisssion. Your advise is highly recommended. 
Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Message 2: Turkic Discourse Structure

Subject: Turkic Discourse Structure

I am organizing a workshop on discourse structure to be held in
Uzbekistan. The target audience will be translators working in
various Turkic languages. While I am reasonably well-versed in
discourse studies in general, I would like the seminar to be maximally
focused on issues of relevance to Turkic languages. Therefore, I would
appreciate any suggestions regarding publications dealing with
discourse structure of Turkic languages.

Message 3: Preposition Stranding

Subject: Preposition Stranding

I am currently working on Preposition Stranding as
exemplified in (1) and (2).
(1) Which girl did John give the book to?
(2) *Which year was John still a small boy in?

Does anybody know of any cognitive or discourse-functional accounts of
Preposition Stranding other than Takami (1988) or Deane's (1992)
_Grammar in Mind and Brain_ and the approaches mentioned therein?
Thanks in advance for any hints. I will, of course, post a summary to
the list.
