Vietnamese Classifiers

I am giving some thoughts on the question of whether mensural and sortal categories can be applied to Vietnamese classifiers. The question is raised in Sim’s thesis. For those who are interested in Viet classifiers, I am pasting two links in this post:

For those who are interested in Vietnamese classifiers for pedagogical purpose, I have a list of the classifiers. You may contact me at sealinguist@gmail.com.  Your patience is required as I am currently away from the computer for a few months, and only use it randomly.
