TaL formative

If you can get your hands on a copy of Jouon & Muraoka's Grammar, check
paragraph 88L, sections d-n. (Paragraph 88, on noun patterns, is the longest
in the two-volume grammar.) It has a lot more to say about form than about
semantics, but it's worth looking at. Chap. 5 of W-O'C does discuss noun
patterns, but you're right--it's not in much detail. When I worked on noun
patterns with O'Connor, he had us check W-O'C (briefly), GKC, J-M, and a
German grammar (Meyer, I think). The two most helpful were GKC and J-M.
