Message 1: Query:DP in Japanese?

From: <SW10011phx.cam.ac.uk>
Subject: Query:DP in Japanese?

Dear Linguists,
 I am interested in Functional Cagetories in Japanese, especially DP
 hypothesis. What is the categories of demonstratives (e.g. KONO, SONO, ANO,
 DONO) and possessive pronouns (e.g. WATASHINO) in Noun Phrases (in traditional
 sense) in Japanese?
 Are they Heads of DPs, or Heads of APs, or specifiers of NPs?
 If you have any argument or know references, please send me what is
 relevant.

 Thank you very much.

Message 2: Help with case grammar

From: Wallace E. Dixon <dixonnike.heidelberg.edu>
Subject: Help with case grammar

 I am a psychologist attempting to become familiar with Fillmore's
Case Grammar. As I am reading it (I'm almost finished), I realize that
linguists use a whole different language than psycholinguists. I want
to learn this second language though. Could anyone recommend to me a
couple of references which provide the necessary translations? I.e., could
someone recommend an easier introduction to case grammar (perhaps even
an undergrad textbook would work, though I would prefer a more thorough
explanation than a typical undergrad text would provide). Thanks in
advance. Please respond privately.

Message 3: Query: Collection of non-standard lexical items

Date: Fri, 10 Jun 1994 14:26:03 Query: Collection of non-standard lexical items
From: dbritain <dbritainessex.ac.uk>
Subject: Query: Collection of non-standard lexical items

Does anyone know of any research at all using non-traditional
dialectological techniques to collect information on the
social-geographical distribution of non-standard lexical items? What success
have researchers had in trying to collect such data with more recent
methods?

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has done research on this, or
simply knows of articles/books etc tackling this issue.

I'll summarise soon, if I get some replies.

Cheers,

Message 4: Old Journals

From: "Leslie Z. Morgan" <MORGANLOYOLA.EDU>
Subject: Old Journals

There was a posting a few years ago about libraries interested in
old copies of *Language*. Is that information still around? Would
the same folks maybe be interested in the transactions of the *American
Phililogical Society*? I know someone who has a set complete since the
fifties and who would be delighted to get some shelf space back.
The *Language* issues are only the last 10 years or so.

Please contact me directly- MORGANLOYVAX.BITNET or MORGANLOYOLA.EDU
Thank you.
