I would think the 'binding' between a main and subordinate clause to be stronger than that between two clauses joined with 'and'. So, what you say about the use of double perfectives kind of surprises me.

It's less an issue of "binding" than of temporal sequencing, which is usually more complex in subordinating relationships.

I think I understand, but I am curious on how you would define 'temporal sequencing'.

Kaltxì everyone,

I wanted to let you know that my article, Media, Information Technology and Language Planning: What can Endangered Language Communities learn from Created Language Communities?, published in Current Issues in Language Planning is now available on-line.  If you are a University student your library will probably have this journal available to you for download for free.  Others, unfortunately, will have to purchase it on-line, but here is the abstract for you to look at if you are interested.

Just a note I wrote this in March before I had even thought of the Na'vi research study so please excuse any errors on my part.

Irayo!

ta, Christine

Kaltxì, ma everyone, :)

Apologies for the necro-post, but I wanted to let you know that I have now completed the analysis of the first ten questions in the Na'vi Research Study. The report (compiled with Prrton's help) is now available for download. Analysis of questions 11-20 will be happening over the next few months as well.

You can access the report on my website: http://www.christineschreyer.ca/Research.html
The file is called "Report on Na'vi Research © Christine Schreyer (October 2011)" and it is below a description of the research itself.  I will be presenting some of these results at the American Anthropology Association's annual conference in Montreal, QC, Canada on Wednesday, November 16th, 2011 at 8:45pm.  I can post more details about where if anyone is interested and able to make it to the presentation.

I look forward to hearing your feedback on the results compiled so far and am happy to answer any questions as well.  :)

Irayo to all!

ta, Kìrìstin

The data are interesting.  I look forward to some future paper analyzing the results. :)  I assume you're give the first airing of that at the conference.

No, I downloaded it correctly without troubles. Try to clear browser cache and download again. Or - I can send the file to you by email, if you want

It's your download or your reader. It works fine for me (tested in both Adobe Reader X and Foxit 5).

apparently my version of preview is too old for this version of the PDF but the problem has been solved by a friend.

It is indeed very interesting… Ma Christine, have found somebody else to translate the questions for you? I had translated only the first, hadn’t I? :-\
Otherwise, very interesting!

Now I found it's really sad for me not to respond in this research.. although it wasn't the correct period for me :(

Good to see the results, very interesting :)
