Message 1: Natural Semantic Metalanguage

Subject: Natural Semantic Metalanguage

I am working on a project involving Natural Semantic Metalanguage and the
Malay language, and I am looking some people familiar with NSM and certain
languages so that I could ask a few questions. Is there anyone out there
working with NSM on one of these languages, Japanese, Javanese, Thai,
Cantonese and Tamil?
Thank you

Subject: denominals and deadjectives

Dear linguists,
I am now doing a research concerning denominals and deadjectives in the 
history of Mandarin Chinese. If you know who else is doing this within the 
generative enterprise, please let me know. Any possible references are welcome!
