Query Subject:   Focus/Narrow Syntax/Bangla

Query:   Hello,
I have worked on a very large portion of Bangla Syntax in my thesis
called 'Grammar of Case and Adposition----a parametric Study', under
Minimalist framework. During the course of my study I found that Focus plays
a very big role in 'Narrow Syntax' in Bangla-the language I worked on. I
creates additional Binding possibilities----that is "creating" Quantifiers
in traditional terms. I am looking for some work which treats Focus in
'Narrow Syntax' and not as an 'Interface' condition only. Perhaps these are
'two different kinds' which can exist in the same language. Ple--ase I'll be
really grateful if somebody can help me.

Also, I have Widows 98 and Ms Word and Acrobat Reader in my
computer. I can't download .GZ and other file types. Can some body
guide me as to how these files can be downloaded in Ms word format? I
found M. Rooth's' papers on Focus, but I am unable to read them.

Thanx in advance
Sharbani Banerji
