Please, I need to find the reference of a PhD dissertation defended at
Cornell University (in the 70ties) by Ian R. Smith over Batticaloa
(Sri Lanka) Portuguese Creole Phonology.  Thank you very much.

Prof. Dr. Jean-Pierre Angenot

Subject:  english middles

I am studying the development of the English middle construction such
as:

(1)This shirt irons easily.

In most of the sources I have looked at (Visser, Denison, Lightfoot),
middles are found more in Early Modern English than in Old or Middle
English.

Does anyone have any information on this?

Furthermore, I am also interested in finding examples of middles in
all periods of English. Does anyone know of websites or corpora that
will not tax the meager monetary situation of a (relatively)poor
graduate student?

I'll post a summary.
