Dear colleagues,

I would like to propose some questions pertaining to Critical Discourse
Analysis:
1. What is CDA ?
2. What are its procedures of research (conceptual framework)?
3. What are its strength compared to Discourse Analysis widely known so
   far ?

Sincerely,
Joko K. Damanhuri

Subject:  Nominative-Genitive Conversion


Dear members,

I'm a graduate student at Osaka University of
Foreign Studies, Japan. I'm now writing a thesis
on the Nominative-Genitive Conversion Construction
in Japanese (and Korean), in which Nominative subjects
optionally alternate with Genitive subjects in relative
clauses.  A Japanese example is given below:

John      ga    /   no       kai-ta       hon
John-nominative /-genitive   write-past   book
"the book which John wrote"

I would like to know whether this type of Case-conversion
is allowed in Tamil, which language I've heard elsewhere does
allow this conversion, but I have no solid data with which to
draw a firm conclusion.  I would also like to know whether there
are any other languages that show the same kind of Case-alternation.
I would appreciate any replies and help.

Thank you very much in advance.


Sincerely,
