Dear ADS Folks,

For an article on constructions with elliptical _like_ + past participle
(the infant likes picked up, children like held, the cat doesn't like
petted, do you like fed? etc.) my colleague, Tom Murray, and I would
appreciate hearing from anyone who uses such constructions, is in an
area where such constructions are in use, or is familiar with such

Please reply by email directly to me, Beth Simon, at the following email
