We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject:  Query: Accusative-dative syncretism

Dear linguists,

In e.g. Spanish and Hindi, only some direct objects (human/animate or
definite ones) receive case marking, and when they do they are marked
with the same form that marks the dative case ("a" in Spanish, "ko" in
Hindi).  I'm interested in the following:

1) Which other languages are you aware of where direct and indirect
object (accusative and dative) take the same overt case marker; and

2) do these languages mark *all* direct objects with this marker, or
only some? If the latter is the case, which objects are marked?

A summary of any replies I get will, of course, be posted to the list.

Thanks,

Ashild Naess

Subject:  Qs: Substantial Computational Grammar for Dutch?

Dear all,

For a European Project on "E-Democracy" (http://www.edentool.org), we
would like to implement an APSG grammar for Dutch. Currently, we are
looking at what material already is available in this field. Are there
public or semi-public (perhaps against a Gnu style license) grammars
for Dutch, of substantial coverage, that we can base our work on? We
are already contacting the people from Amazon
(http://lands.let.kun.nl/amazon/) and AGFL
(http://www.nlnet.nl/projects/agfl/).

A summary of the findings will be posted. Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Stefan Rijnhart
