Subject:  Particles in Turkish

Dear members of the list,

I am currently writing a paper on the subject, particles in
Turkish. This is the reason why I would like to get in contact with
members of the list who have any information on this topic. I am
especially interested in Turkish modal particles. Please, send your
answers to BASKURT at hotmail.com

I am looking forward to your answers.

Yours faithfully
Andreas Eraybar

Subject:  Classical Mongolian

dear linguists,

   can anyone recommend some good sources on the Classical Mongolian
scripts, specifically the 44-character 'vertical square script', also known
as "hPags-Pa Lodoi Jaltsan's script" or 'dorvolzhin bichig', the official
court script of Kubilai Kahn during the Yuan dynasty ?
   of course, any good sources of information on either the 'soyombo'
horizontal 90-letter script or Zanabazar's 66-letter horizontal square
script will be readily and thankfully accepted as well !

thanks in advance,
michael

Subject:  questions with infinitivies

Dear colleagues,
I am posting this inquiry about two  types of qustions in two
languages:English and Russian.

1.Is anyone familiar with any
analysis of the English wh-questions of the type "What e to do?"
Where e to go?
Is there an ellipsis of some kind here?

2. My other question is the possible analysis of yes-no
questions in Russian, also with an infnintive verb.

I came across these questions in the speech between very young
children and parents.
Some examples are:: 1. Knigu chitat'?
                      Gloss: book to read?
                                "SHall I/'we read a/the book?

                                2. Tjazheluju dat'?
                                   Gloss: heavy (one) to give?
                                    possible translation: "Should I
                                give the heavy (one)
Again, I wonder about ellipsis or any other analysis.

Thank you in advance. I'll be happy to post the responses I
receive.
