This is a request for bibliographical information on support (or lack
thereof) for the claim (Moskoweitz(1992), p. 39) that there is ''a higher
proportion of questions (among mothers) [and] imperatives (among fathers)''
used in caretaker speech. 

Thanks in advance for any information you may be able to pass along.

Sincerely,
Mahmoud Sadrai

Does anyone know of any literature pertaining to the semantics and/or
pragmatics of the word ''just''?  I know that a great deal has been written
about ''only,'' but I've been unable to find anything that specifically
discusses the word ''just.''  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
