hello.
    I'm in the midst of compiling a bibliography of Linguistics books on Language
Contact dating from '90 to the present. Please send me any relevant titles. (the
more the merrier but not past one week after posting). I intend to post my list
and/or sumbit it personally to your e-mail address upon request.
cheers,
spiro.

Subject:  Proclitic deletion

There is an example in English of an enclitic which is subject to an
optional rule-based deletion, and  is the topic of a discussion of prestige
preferences (Labov) , explained on the basis of the value of it's syntactic
residue, I am wondering if among the world's languages whether there is an
example of proclitic erasure, perhaps a discourse related one as in the
following:

1. Tu me vois?
2. Je [te] vois!

I am looking to understand more fully the distinction between simple
clitics and special clitics and any references will be appreciated.

Is there anyone who knows of a lg in which the word for "egg yolk" and
"egg white" is the same?  If so, could you please respond to the address
below, giving the term and the lg (and family too if it's an obscure lg)?

Thanks,
ashlee bailey
