I thank you for this precious work. I have downloaded your thesis and I think it is so useful for me.

Bahrom - January 10, 2009

I’m glad you are finding my thesis useful. What is your particular area of interest?

I’m glad my thesis is helpful for your research. I would be very interested in reading your paper when it is done.

I’m not sure “copular clauses” is the proper wording. Etym. correct, in English “copulate” is permanently associated only with sex.

I like your work though.

Bahrom - July 11, 2009

Look up the word copula. You will find that phrases containing copulas are commonly called copular clauses in the literature.

Dear Brian,

Thank you very much for your precious work! I am about to write a short paper towards my degree in comparative-historical linguistics. I will be comparing the verbal systems of Sogdian and Yaghnobi. Your thesis will be very, very helpful!!
