Wanted: well-behaved natural language data. The time is ticking on my tenure clock and I need to get a paper out there quick. Do you have some easy and accessible data to share? I need something that patently supports any version of Chomskyan syntactic theory. Will trade my own unruly field data if you’re interested in a swap—I can’t see any interesting patterns in it myself, but I suppose some typologist could “discover” something in it. Contact AssProf, SG Box 10UR.
If anyone has seen my data ... please don’t tell anyone what it’s really like.
