Summary:   For Query: Linguist 11.265

Some time ago I had sent out a query about conclusion and
premise indicators.
Thanks to those who responded:
A.F. Gupta
Geoffrey Simpson
Lameen Souag
Elijah Wright


Chinese does have conclusion and premise indicators, as does Arabic and
Japanese.

The following reference was also mentioned:

Thank you once again.
