Subject:  descriptive grammars

Dear linguists,

I wonder if anyone could provide me with some bibliographical
information concerning German:

I'm looking for descriptive grammars of German(written in English or
French) that I could use in typological research (not only synchronic,
but if possible also about diachrony and dialects). I am currently aware
of the following:

Eisenberg, Peter (1994): German. In: Koenig, Ekkehard / van der Auwera,
Johan (eds.): The Germanic Languages. London / New York.
Curme, George O. (1922): A Grammar of the German Language. New York.
Russ, Charles, V.J. (ed.)(1989): The Dialects of Modern German. A
Linguistic
Survey. Stanford.
Feuillet, Jack (1993): Grammaire structurale de l'Allemand. Bern.

I'd very much appreciate your help.
Thank you in advance

Sofia Ahsan

does anyone have an account of how "i would rather" formed "druthers" in US
english? or is there a different derivation? the change from gapped clause to
declinable noun seems unusual to say the least.

comments welcome,
			alex.

Subject:  verb aspect in Serbian

Does anybody know of any more recent research on Serbian verb aspect?
Or research dealing with verb aspect in Serbian as a morphophonological
category (rather than a semantic  or a morphosyntactic category as the
traditional grammarians say)? Also, is anybody aware of an extensive
list of Serbian verbs by their aspectual features?
Thanks in advance,
Please answer directly to this e-mail address.
