dear linguists
I am posting my message to ask you which University offers
corrospondence course in the US or UK in linguistics. Please can you
send me any information about corrospondence study or the name of the
universities so that I can contact them. Thank you for your effort and
happy holyday.

Subject:  Expressing negation - MA thesis

A friend of mine asked me to publish this query hoping for some feedback.

I work on MA thesis the topic of which is "Ways of expressing negation". The
paper will hopefully consist of 3 chapters: syntactic negation,
morphological negation, and double and implied negation. These are the
fields of my interest.
As far as syntactics negation is concerned I've just finished my research. I
would be interested if anybody may say something intriguing about the place
place of negative particle 'not' in deep structure (diagram representations
are welcome).
Morphological negation, which shouldn't be connected with lexical negation,
is interesting for me as far as negative prefixes and suffixes (infixes?)
are concerned. Not only the meaning is interesting but also the process of
choosing the morphological negation instead of syntactic one.
The most controvertial issue in this paper may be double negation. Any
examples, analysis and 'amateur' theories are welcome.
Last part is going to be about implied negation - negation in affirmative
form. The sentences should be looked upon from pragmatic point of view:
concerning text. The idea is to find or generalize the hints giving light on
negative meaning in affirmative sentence.
Thank you for your attention. All tributes to the research are welcome.

Any comments or remarks to my friend please direct at mlisecki at kki.net.pl
with 'negation' in the subject field. Thank you on behalf of my friend for
any feedback.

Subject: Preverbal Thought

"
Does anyone know of any undergraduate reading about the preverbal aspects of
utterance planning? (Or "conceptualisation", to use Levelt's term). I teach
things about it, and in itself it is a nice student-friendly topic, but the
psycholinguistics textbooks don't seem to deal with it (my students
certainly don't count Levelt's "Speaking" as a textbook).

Subareas include:
relationship of attention and encycopaedic memory to definiteness;
"linearisation" of a complex piece of information into a string of sentences
"perspective" (ie why you don't say "The fridge is on top of your pen")

Please reply to "i.crookston at lmu.ac.uk" and Linguist list will be the
location of a summary.
"

Thank you and merry Christmas
