so you don't have any major disagreements with the method used by Rolf
to determine his statistics or the values of the statistics he gathered?
Quoting David Kummerow <farmerjoeblo at hotmail.com>:
>> Hi David,
>> it would seem that you have completely misunderstood my request. I
>> didn't ask you if you agree with Rolf's definition of perfect and
>> imperfect aspect. Rolf has provided statistics of the verb forms with
>> respect to temporal reference.
>> I was interested in you performing an analysis using the tools Rolf has
>> used to see if you come up with statistics that vary to any significant
>> degree. I consider 1 verb form to be an excessively small corpus and you
>> failed to show what linguistic tools you used to analyse the verb form.
>> James Christian
> Hi James,
> I personally see little point in doing this on this list where sincere
> linguistic efforts are mocked and those with standard positions are
> repeatedly mocked and asked to defend their position over and over.
> Until there is agreement as to what constitutes semantics, I see little
> point in progressing. If you want to read others in addition to Rolf
> using similar principals, see the monographs of Rogland, Goldfajn, Hatav
> and the dissertation of John Cook.
> David Kummerow.
