There are many ways in which I am somewhat on the border in many
of these conversations. As I read what Ana wrote what came to mind
was some of the work Jean Lave did on the notion of transfer (within
a social and anthropological context). I was wondering how Ana's
questions, if they even do, interface with that body of work. Thus,
it is quite possible I was asking about interfacing between ch/at and
COP (I don't know what COP is - smile - although I presume it has
something to do with social anthropology). I am sure there is a
different emphasis, but the phenomena sound somewhat the same. What
you say about Vrjo sounds interesting. Are those some relevant papers
