I would like to determine syllable onset frequencies (both type and token) in English, e.g. how often /g/, /pl/ or /str/ appear in syllable onset position. Aichert, Marquardt & Ziegler (2005) list onset and rime frequencies - based on CELEX - for German. I wonder if a similar list can be created for English frequencies using WebCelex.

I am analyzing infinitival clauses in Latin and Old French. Could you suggest any research/study of such clauses in general and/or in Indo-European Languages? Thank you!
I have noticed that most of the linguistic studies tend to the new branches of applied linguistics ,or pragmatics ignoring the basic branch which is historical linguistics!!!!
is it because every thing have been tackled in it? or because of the emergence of new more important branches of linguistics ?
according to me I do believe that historical linguistics still has much to study and discuss.
Most of the studies looked at main/subordinate clauses to infer clausal architecture of a given language and how it has evolved over time. One of the most discussed topics is pragmatic domain and the interplay between syntactic structure and information structure, e.g. topicalization, clefting etc. Would you agree or disagree that infinitival clauses may be a better source to look at the word order change, as it is a reduced clause and we are not "distracted" by some stylistic variation? Looking forward for your opinions! Thank you!
