Dear All,
After yesterday's excitement about English being a Scandinavian language, back to the comparative calm of grammatical terminology! Many thanks to everyone who responded to my query about the term 'conative'. My summary of those responses augmented by a bit more digging around on my part has grown into a short note, which I attach. Comments and corrections welcome.
Best,
Nigel
