Query:   Hi,
I wonder if any of you can help me out. I'm looking for examples of
overgeneralizations of the Dative Alternation in English. I have
Mazurkewich and White's 1984 paper (The acquisition of the dative
alternation: Unlearning overgeneralizations) and a few other sundry
examples. Does anyone know where I might find more examples?
If anyone wants a summary of whatever I
receive, please mail me.
Thanks for your help,

I am Brazilian and work at Universidade Federal do Para (Amazonia).I
am writing a research paper about the use of Discourse Markers
vs. ideology and culture. I'd appreciate comments and suggestions on
this topic. I'd also like to contac colleagues who are interested in
the study of markers across languages/cultures. For that reason I
created a home page which has a specialized bibliography with over 500
references on markers and related entities at:

Pay a visit to it. If you have a paper about markers I'd be glad to
include it in my bibliography, in case it is not there yet.
Please tell me about your experience/research that might help me with
my task. Thanks in advance,
