Parts of Speech are a central aspect of linguistic theory and analysis. Though a long-established tradition in Western linguistics and philosophy has assumed the validity of Parts of Speech in the study of language, there are still many questions left unanswered.

In A-Morphous Morphology, Stephen Anderson presents a theory of word structure which relates to a full generative grammar of language. He holds word structure to be the result of interacting principles from a number of grammatical areas, and thus not localized in a single morphological component. Dispensing with classical morphemes, the theory instead... more...

Das Werk behandelt einen der spannendsten Abschnitte der derzeitigen theoretischen Entwicklung im Bereich der Linguistik, die sogenannten "Diskursmarker", die eine zentrale Rolle in der Gesprächsorganisation übernehmen und zu denen es bisher nur wenig konkrete, empirische Forschung gibt. In die Analyse mündlicher, gesprochener Sprache werden Überlegungen... more...
