Thanks, Kristian! Actually, I'd found that site once and lost it and wondered where it went. He refers to Greenberg's universals but doesn't repeat the list, unfortunately, so alas I still am without them. Rick does have a lot of interesting stuff, though! Takes a very different tack than I do, I guess cause he's an auxlanger and I'm an artlanger or at least hobbylanger. He's wrong about metaphor, though. He needs to read Lakoff, Johnson, and Turner. :) ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at
