  • Theoretical Approaches to Universalsby Artemis Alexiadou

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 180.00

    The present volume has its origin in the GLOW conference on Universals hosted in Berlin in March 1999. The papers in this volume are concerned both with formal as well as with substantive universals. All the contributions attempt to identify universal properties of the language faculty, as well as the source of cross-linguistic variation. They cover... more...

  • Functional Structure in Nominalsby Artemis Alexiadou

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 158.00

    This monograph offers an in depth investigation of nominalization processes across languages e.g. Greek, Germanic, Romance, Hebrew, Slavic. Adopting and extending the view that category formation does not involve any lexical operation (recently put forth within the framework of Distributed Morphology), it shows how the behavior of nominals as opposed... more...

  • Adverb Placementby Artemis Alexiadou

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 165.00

    This monograph investigates a number of central issues in the Syntax of Adverbs with special reference to Greek in the light of Kayne's (1994) Antisymmetry Hypothesis. It examines the conditions on the placement of the various adverb types, their licensing requirements, and their relation to adjectives. The author advances an analysis according to... more...

  • Multiple Determiners and the Structure of DPsby Artemis Alexiadou

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    This book is a research monograph that investigates the crosslinguistic distribution of multiple determiners. In some languages, noun phrases permit or even seem to require a double or multiple realization of definite/indefinite markers in certain modification environments. The book develops tools that can be used to keep the different instantiations... more...

  • Possessors, Predicates and Movement in the Determiner Phraseby Artemis Alexiadou; Chris Wilder

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 195.00

    This volume presents a cross-section of current research on the internal syntax of ‘Determiner Phrases` (DPs), with special emphasis on the analysis of DPs modified by genitival, adjectival and other non-finite attributes. Possessors, Predicates and Movement in the DP illustrates clearly the ongoing debate over older and more recent approaches... more...

  • Studies on Universal Grammar and Typological Variationby Artemis Alexiadou; T. Alan Hall

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 165.00

    The articles of the present volume consist of generative analyses dealing with several current topics of discussion and debate in syntactic theory, such as clitics, word order, scrambling, directionality, movement. The data in the volume are drawn from a number of typologically diverse languages (e.g. Arabic, Berber, Dutch, Gaelic, Greek, Malagasy).... more...

  • Non-Canonical Passivesby Artemis Alexiadou; Florian Schäfer

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 149.00

    This paper highlights similarities between two classes of arguably non-canonical passives, namely ‘deponent’ verbs familiar from Latin, and ‘inherent reflexive’ verbs in Germanic and Romance, arguing that the latter are the counterparts of the former – notably, both classes of verbs are denominal/deadjectival. Building... more...

  • The Syntax of Nominalizations across Languages and Frameworksby Artemis Alexiadou; Monika Rathert

    De Gruyter Mouton 2010; US$ 182.00

    The volume explores the syntax of nominalizations, focusing on deverbal and deadjectival nominalizations, but also discussing the syntax of genitives and the syntax of distinct readings of nominalizations. The volume investigates the morpholgy-syntax interface as well as the semantics-syntax interface in the domain of nominalizations. The theoretical... more...

  • The Semantics of Nominalizations across Languages and Frameworksby Artemis Alexiadou; Monika Rathert

    De Gruyter Mouton 2010; US$ 182.00

    The volume explores the semantics of nominalizations from different theoretical points of view: formal and lexical semantics, cognitive-functional grammar, lexical-functional grammar, discourse representation theory. Data from a variety of languages are taken into account, including Hungarian, Italian, French, German and English. The papers discuss... more...

  • The Syntax of Relative Clausesby Artemis Alexiadou; Paul Law; André Meinunger; Chris Wilder

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 203.00

    This book presents a cross-section of recent generative research into the syntax of relative clauses constructions. Most of the papers collected here react in some way to Kayne?s (1994) proposal to handle relative clauses in terms of determiner complementation and raising of the relativized nominal. The editors provide a thorough introduction of these... more...
