Message 1: Query: "Verb gender"?

From: Elliott Moreton <elliottpsyche.mit.edu>
Subject: Query: "Verb gender"?


Lots of languages have some sort of noun gender system in which each
noun belongs to one of a small number of classes, such that other
sentence elements (pronouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. -- even
complementizers!) must "agree" morphologically with the noun when they
stand in certain structural or grammatical relations to it. (See
Corbett's _Gender_ in the Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics series
for more facts than you can shake a stick at.)

Does something analogous exist for verbs?

In other words, is there a language that divides all its verbs up into
classes, such that a verb's class membership shows up morphologically
on, say, its noun arguments, or its complementizer?

Reply by email to elliottpsyche.mit.edu; I will post a summary.

Thanks,
Elliott Moreton

Hello,

I am working on a dissertation on English borrowed material in Norwegian,
with the working title "Morphological, Semantic and Functional Aspects of
English Loanwords in Norwegian". As I am planning a trip to the U.S. this
summer or fall, I would be interested in getting in touch with people
working with related topics at U.S. universities. I am especially interested
in any relevant conferences, seminars, workshops, etc. to be held in the
period July to December 1994.

 Hi,

 I got hold of a Javanese font for Mac. I understand somebody at Cornell
 developed it. I am developing a software to learn Javanese writing and
 want to use this font, but I could not find the author. I need to know
 if it is a freeware or if I need to pay royalty. Can anybody help?
 Thanks.

 FYI - I have been working on the decsription of Javanese language in a
 multimedia format, as part of my Preservation of Indonesian Languages
 project. The Learning Javanese Script and CALL of Javanese are some of
 the components of this Javanese description.

 Have a good summer!
 Marmo
