A dozen+ on my website

A final big push of papers on my website — filling in gaps in things that people have asked about or that link to things already on the site or that I’ll want to refer to in coming postings. One short article that I added a little while back; 20 items scanned in by my impressive staff (my friend Ned Deily); and one more to come (the very first joint piece by Ann Daingerfield Zwicky and me, from 1973; I think that this will complete the set of our collaborative publications).

The first item, also by Ann and me (our last, published after she died):

(A. D. Zwicky & AMZ) The thing is, some that’s aren’t there at all. American Speech 61.2.182-3 (1986). (link)

And still to come:

(AMZ & A. D. Zwicky). How come and what for. Issues in Linguistics: Papers in Honor of Henry and Renée Kahane, ed. by B. B. Kachru et al. Univ. of Illinois Press (1973) 923-33. [1/6: now added here]

If you look at the full set of papers now available on my website (not everything I’ve written, but still a lot), you’ll see a huge spike of publications in 1986, tailing off a bit in 1987. Not an accident. After Ann died in 1985, I went on to teach for the fall at Beijing Language Institute (as it was then), including one course on the Interface Program, about my work on the interfaces of morphology, syntax, and phonology. It was a tremendously productive time intellectually; I’m still indebted to my students and colleagues from this time. Then when I came back to the U.S., I threw myself into exploring these ideas.

Eventually my man Jacques observed, forcefully, that I was working about 100 hours a week, that this was crazy, and that it wasn’t good for me, or for him, and he brought me back to a more reasonable, but still productive, life (including a year visiting at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, in 1990-91, and teaching at the LSA’s 1991 Linguistic Institute, at UC Santa Cruz).

Much of this work was sufficiently technical that it no longer has much interest for anyone. But here it is.

(The Big 20 are in a different format from most of the earlier scans on my website: they’re not quite as nice looking as the others and don’t have the metadata and the like that the others do, but they do allow you to search them, which the earlier pdf’s did not.)
