When you were a child growing up, chances are that you believed in Santa Claus. That merry fat man who brought presents to all the good kids in the world. Then by accident, or because someone told, you discovered this man did not really exist. How did that feel? This is a question was always wanted to know the answer to so we asked people to tell us their stories. Here is a collection of fun and interesting essays about Santa Claus. What we learned is that kids are pretty smart and the Santa Claus story wil endure.
Santa takes his first vacation in 1, years.
Just who is Santa Claus? Join Joe as he discovers his life isn't as useless and empty as he thought it had become. When Charlie, the little girl with the big heart, teams up with him, they discover the true magic of Christmas. A peek inside: "Part of what I got, when I became a 'Nicholas," is the ability to be with certain people. What they know about a child, we know. In turn, their ability to relate to children, is magnified, so they can help them. We can't reach every child who needs it, because there are not nearly enough who can do the work. We can't tell you how you'll know, but you will know when a certain child needs extra 'attention.' When you touch them to let them on your lap or say hello, they'll feel the unconditional love that is the Spirit of Christmas."
Thomas A. Janvier (1849-1913) was an American story-writer and historian. Born in Philadelphia, he spent several years in Colorado, New Mexico and Mexico, thereby gaining inspiration and material for much of his literary work. Facsimile reprint.
Patterns of relative clause formation tend to vary according to the typological properties of a language. Highly polysynthetic languages tend to have fully nominalized relative clauses and no relative pronouns, while other typologically diverse languages tend to have relative clauses which are similar to main or independent clauses. Languages of the Americas, with their rich genetic diversity, have all been under the influence of European languages, whether Spanish, English or Portuguese, a situation that may be expected to have influenced their grammatical patterns. The present volume focuses on two tasks: The first deals with the discussion of functional principles related to relative clause formation: diachrony and paths of grammaticalization, simplicity vs. complexity, and formalization of rules to capture semantic-syntactic correlations. The second provides a typological overview of relative clauses in nine different languages going from north to south in the Americas.
