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.

E-mail this message to a friend:

We are interested in finding languages in which two temporal words may
appear in the same sentence but be separated by other element(s), for
example, ''Last year he went to visit his parents three times in May.'' in
which ''last year'' and ''may'' are seperated by a clause.

If you know of a language with this property please contact Dongtao Yu:
yudongtao at yahoo.cn.
