Dear Linguist List,

Does anyone know if John F. Carrington, author of 'Talking Drums of
Africa' (1949) and 'A Comparative Study of some Central African
Gong-Languages' (1949) is still alive, and if so, how he can be reached?

Message 2: French word frequency list

Subject: French word frequency list


I am working on a senior thesis and I need some information about word
frequency in French. Specifically, I am looking for a database with
frequency information of French words (ideally, both lemma frequency and
wordform frequency), preferably also including syntactic category
information. (A French version of the CELEX databases would be perfect
for my purposes.)
If you have any ideas of where I might find such a resource, please reply
directly to me at I would appreciate any

Thank you very much.
