      Thanks for showing your interest in my paper. Now I am editing the paper (mainly to clean up the citations) and I will upload it when it is ready.

      No relation whatsoever. I coined the term "relational grammar" in (2002) while teaching at ITBMU as a rendition of the Burmese term "caacap"; I did not know that that term had been already in use in the field of linguistics.

      > (ii) What role does Relational Grammar play in your analysis of the examples you gave to explain the term tulyaadhikara.ne? I could not find the term 'substratum' in your outline.

      I used the concept when I described the "identical adjectives" but not the term. But I like Jim's term 'substratum' to render the Pali term 'adhikara.na'.
