Fritz, Joe and everyone,

I am also very interested in this topic and have been for a long 
time. To add to the list, there was a good discussion with many 
examples in:

Of the Manners of Speaking That the Old Ones Had: The Metaphors of 
Andres De Olmos in the Tulal Manuscript Arte Para Aprender LA Lengua 
Mexicana, 15 (Hardcover)
by Judith M. Maxwell (Author), Craig A. Hanson (Author)

# Hardcover: 438 pages

# ISBN-13: 978-0874803693

Joe, Is there a good way to get a copy, in some form, of the Montes 
de Oca Vega thesis (2000)?  Is it around or on line as a PDF? If so, 
I would love to get a copy. It sounds like a great resource and 
worthy of citation.
