In my Web site you can find a document on ways to use CONC 1.76 for the
Macintosh with Chinese texts, and a link to download the option file with
the settings I use for this purpose:


Those settings work with Japanese texts as well.

The Patrice Cherau film of La Reine Margot has the queen using a mask in
one scene. I don't know to what extent the film or the novel are accurate.

J.C. Smith did indeed give a paper at the Historical Linguistics conference
in Manchester last summer developing the notion of skiamorph (what is the
etymology???). Nigel Vincent (also at Manchester) has been looking at
exaptation, or the rededication of morphological "stuff" which has lost
meaning over time, for a while in various publications (a paper he gave at
the 1992 Morphologietagung in Krems, Austria, for example), all of it in
response to Roger Lass's paper (in the Journal of Linguistics) on linguistic
"junk" - or linguistic form that has no function. Naturally I do not have
the references with me, but can find some of them if anyone is interested.
