The editors are able to report that the most downloaded Berkeley Linguistics Society article in January 2017 was Lauri Karttunen's "Conversational implicature in Montague grammar" (BLS 1, 1975), with literally dozens of requests. The escholarship server did not break, but it may have come close.
- "This volume brings together descriptions and analyses of the conjoint/disjoint alternation, a typologically significant phenomenon found in many Bantu languages. The chapters provide in-depth documentation, comparative studies and theoretical analyses of the alternation from a range of Bantu languages, showing its crosslinguistic variation in constituent structure, morphology, prosody and information structure."
