We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Greenberg's dominance
Greenberg 1966 proposed two notions, dominance and harmony, to explain
word order universals. The notion Harmony was pursued to a great
extend in the literature. However, few discussions on the notion of
Dominance, as far as I know. I would like to collect the research
materials on Dominance. I will summarise the responds if any.
