PFSEL problematic: confirms generalization

thanks for the note on P.FSEL with odd plural. interesting that the
oddballs fall into the class with the unmarked analysis. this is
actually predicted as we note in the paper, but we used other
examples. the idea is that the unmarked in one aspect should correlate
with lexical marking generally: so the oddballs conform nicely.

cheers
