    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

  • From Gesture in Conversation to Visible Action as Utteranceby Mandana Seyfeddinipur; Marianne Gullberg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    Children begin to gesture long before talking.

Children continue to gesture after they start to talk, and through to adulthood. In spite of that, some key concepts related to gesture and language... more...

  • Profiling Discourse Participantsby Barbara De Cock

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

  • Perspectives on Semantic Rolesby Silvia Luraghi; Heiko Narrog

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This paper targets the phenomenon of non valence-governed datives of affectedness linked to possession. By adopting a constructional approach based on Goldberg (1995) and a revision of Raineri and Evola (2008), I work out a grid that may be adopted for cross-linguistic purposes. By applying this model to German, French and Italian, I show that the... more...
