    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 92.42

  • Syntactic Issues in the English Imperativeby Eric Potsdam

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 170.00

    This study, first published in 1998, provides a close investigation of central syntactic issues in the English imperative clause type.

  • Multiple Exponenceby Alice C. Harris

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 72.99

    Multiple exponence (ME) is the occurrence of multiple realizations of a single morphosyntactic feature within a word. The four most commonly encountered types of ME are characterized, and these form the basis for discussion of processing of ME, acquisition of ME, historical development of ME, and analysis of ME. more...

  • Theoretical Approaches to Linguistic Variationby Ermenegildo Bidese; Federica Cognola; Manuela Caterina Moroni

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2016; US$ 149.00

By investigating the syntax of subject pronouns and the pro-drop parameter... more...

  • Atypical predicate-argument relationsby Thierry Ruchot; Pascale Van Praet

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2016; US$ 158.00

    Starting out from the consideration that conclusions as to what is atypical regarding a linguistic feature have to be drawn on the basis of language norms, the paper discusses three types of norms: those defined in authoritative grammars or dictionaries, those apparent through judgements by native speakers, and those determined by corpus-based analyses... more...

  • Formal Studies in Slovenian Syntaxby Franc Lanko Maru?ic; Rok ?aucer

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2016; US$ 158.00

    In the diachronic literature, it is well known that reciprocals, which are usually bipartite structures, arise as grammaticalizations of a quantifier and an alterity word, English each other being a typical example. Typical stages in this development are (A) each … other (the parts are independent), (B) each at other (the parts are loosely... more...

This monograph presents a unified account of stripping located at the syntax-information structure interface... more...
