================================================================  

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.

Though nominalization seems to be cross-linguistically associated with
mixed categories (i.e., grammatical constructions where a single word
apparently heads both a verbal and a nominal projection simultaneously,
like English gerunds), I am looking for languages (except Japanese) that
allow verbalization to be associated with mixed categories. That is, in
such languages, a single word formed from a nominal base affixed by a
verbalizer seems to head both nominal and verbal projections. If you know
such a language, please let me know it with a concrete data, if possible.
Thank you.
