Message 1: Verb Second in Romance Languages

Subject: Verb Second in Romance Languages

Dear linguists:

	I am looking for references on Verb Second phenomenon in
medieval (and modern) Romance Languages, in special Portuguese. I am
particularly interested in analyses based on the OT framework.

	I wish to know if all Romance languages had the Verb-Second
constraint, and if there is any modern Romance Language which has
conserved it; it seems that some Rheto-Romance varieties have, is it
true?
	I will be glad to post a summary if there are enough responses.

Best regards,

Bruno Maroneze

Message 2: Squamish answers to copula constructions questionnaire

Subject: Squamish answers to copula constructions questionnaire

Dear All,

A few weeks ago I posted a URL to a copula constructions
questionnaire. Somebody filled it in for Squamish this past Friday,
June 22 but did not leave their email address. They did say, however,
that I can contact them if I had further questions so I think the
email was left out by mistake. First, I would like to thank this
person for very detailed answers which I wouldn't have been able to
get from the available Squamish grammar. I would very much like to
talk to him/her some more about Squamish.

All the very best,
Ljuba
