Subject: Humorous Narratives of ESL students

Hi,

I'm a doctoral student at the University of
Mississippi. My major is TESOL. I'm interested in 
humorous narratives of ESL students. Could anyone
suggest some bibliography to start with? Maybe
something on multicultural humor?

Thanks a lot,
Julia Stakhnevich

Message 2: Typology and Function of Participles

From: Anna Berge <abergehum.ku.dk>
Subject: Typology and Function of Participles

Can anyone give me sources of information on the typology and 
functions of participles, especially present participles, and 
especially with respect to their sometimes ambiguous status as 
nouns/verbs?

(I'm working on historical changes in the function and distribution 
of the participial verb mood in West Greenlandic; this verb mood, in 
its intransitive form, is morphologically identical to the present 
participle, whence the second half of the question above.)

Thanks so much for any help you can give me,

Anna Berge (abergehum.ku.dk)
