  • Arguments and Agreementby Peter Ackema; Patrick Brandt; Fred Weerman

    Oxford University Press, UK 2006; US$ 169.99

    This book explores the role of agreement morphology in the morphosyntactic realization of a verb's arguments. It examines the differences and parallels between configurational and nonconfigurational languages, languages that allow pronoun drop only in particular constructions, and languages which always require overt syntactic determiner phrases... more...

  • Arguments and Caseby Eric Reuland

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 165.00

    The ideas presented by the contributions in this volume originated in a workshop on Burzio’s generalization. Burzio’s Generalization (BG) states that a verb which does not assign an external theta-role to its subject does not assign structural accusative Case to an object and conversely. It connects cross-linguistic similarities between... more...

  • Aspects of Dynamic Phonologyby Toby D. Griffen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1985; US$ 180.00

    Dynamic phonology is the natural consequence of the combination of the latest developments in physiological and acoustic phonetics and the traditional structural/functional theories of linguistics. In phonetics, the segmental approach has long since given way to dynamic phonetics, leaving linguists in the position of either ignoring the dynamic evidence... more...

  • Aspects of the Syntax of Agreementby Cedric Boeckx

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    This volume brings together various strands of research focusing on aspects of the syntax of agreement, and the role that agreement plays in linguistic theory. The essays collected here show how and why agreement has emerged in recent years as the central theoretical construct in minimalism. Although the theoretical context of the volume is minimalist... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 54.95

    This study presents a semantic framework for analysing all aspectual constructions in terms of the event state distinction, and describes the grammatical expression of aspectual meaning in terms of a theory of grammatical constructions. In this theory, grammatical constructions, like words, are conventionalized form-meaning pairs, which are best described... more...
