The LINGUIST List depends on the generous contributions from
subscribers like you; we would not be able to operate without your
help.

The moderators, staff, and student editors at LINGUIST would like to
take this opportunity to thank you for your continuous support.

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:  Pronouns of temporal proximity

The Wari' language of Rondonia, Brazil, has a set of demonstrative
pronouns for, roughly, 'currently present', 'recently absent', and
'long absent'. The only other demonstratives are 'proximate to
speaker', 'proximate to hearer', and 'distal', i.e. roughly the
spatial counterparts of the temporal set.

I would like to know if readers of this list are aware of other
languages with temporal-based (demonstrative or other) pronoun
paradigms.

Thanks,

Dan Everett

I am doing an MA in TEFL in the University of Limerick, Ireland. The
topic of my dissertation is the introduction of new lexis concerned
with computer technology to the English language. I am compiling a
list of such lexical items and would be grateful for any suggestions
on where/how to access such items. Contributions of such data are most
welcome and appreciated. I shall post the results of my study to this
mailing list on completion of my study this October.

Sincerely yours,
Bridget Richardson.
