I am trying to find a study that would have data on the different
proportions of each lexical category (nouns, predicates, etc) at
different stage of the lexical development process and at the adult
stage. I know CDI-based studies have such results for very young
children but I am looking for data on older children and/or adults in
English and French.

Thank you .

Subject: conversion software

Good morning

I am looking for a software that can convert standard Word text into Aztec
or Mayan petroglyphs or pictographs.

Do you know if something like this exists?

Thank you
