    This book studies the linguistic representation of events by examining the relevance of two salient event characteristics-- telicity and durativity-- to the grammatical system of natural language.

  • Konjugationsklassenwandelby Antje Dammel

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 210.00

    Conjugation classes, e.g. strong verbs with change of vowel versus weak verbs with a t-suffix to express tense represent formal differentiations without functional equivalent. Thus, at first glance, they appear to complicate the language system. This study shows that conjugation classes by no means must be necessarily downgraded in the... more...

    De Gruyter 1992; US$ 154.00


  • Deutsches Wörterbuchby Hermann Paul; Helmut Henne; Heidrun Kämper-Jensen; Georg Objartel

    De Gruyter 2002; Not Available

    The new »Paul« is the only single-volume of German on historical principles in which the citation of sources from post-1945 literature figures as prominently as material from earlier periods. It thus contrives both to enhance our understanding of earlier literature (notably Classical and Romantic) and to prompt more searching reflection... more...
