  • Understanding Syntaxby Maggie Tallerman

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    Assuming no prior knowledge, Understanding Syntax  illustrates the major concepts, categories and terminology associated with the study of cross-linguistic syntax. A theory-neutral and descriptive viewpoint is taken throughout. Starting with an overview of what syntax is, the book moves on to an explanation of word classes (such as noun, verb, adjective)... more...

  • Advances in the Syntax of DPsby Anna Bondaruk; Gréte Dalmi; Alexander Grosu

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This chapter argues for the view that Standard Free Relatives and Transparent Free Relatives have exactly the same bi-dimensional configurational structures, and against the view that they have distinct multi-dimensional structures, the transparent variety being externally headed by a token of a CP-internal post-copular phrase. It is argued that the... more...

  • Reclaiming Control as a Semantic and Pragmatic Phenomenonby Patrick Duffley

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    This monograph is part of a growing research agenda in which semantics and pragmatics not only complement the grammar, but replace it. The analysis is based on the assumption that human language is not primarily about form, but about form-meaning pairings. This runs counter to the autonomous-syntax postulate underlying Landau (2013)?s Control in Generative... more...

  • The Diachrony of Negationby Maj-Britt Mosegaard Hansen; Jacqueline Visconti

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    Labov’s idea that the vernacular is the most stable variety of a language raises questions especially where languages of wider communication are concerned. Whether the vernacular practices of a language’s geographical varieties are convergent synchronically and historically can be established by looking at particular variables. One such... more...

    Das vorliegende Werk präsentiert eine detaillierte Darstellung des français acadien auf der Isle Madame im Nordosten der kanadischen Provinz Neuschottland. Das Werk schließt auf Grund seiner präzisen soziolinguistischen und morphosyntaktischen Beschreibung des parler auf dieser Insel eine Lücke in der Forschungsliteratur.

  • Generative and Non-Linear Phonologyby Durand Jacques

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 83.95

    Generative phonology is a developing field of linguistics, and is producing both rival interpretations and models. This book provides a clear and accessible evaluation of the debate. It provides a detailed overview of the main models, revealing that they are often complimentary rather than contradictory, and how these can be interconnect and be used... more...

  • Frontiers of Phonologyby Jacques Durand; Francis Katamba

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 88.95

    Frontiers of Phonology is a collection of essays that present a selective overview of trends in the linguistic analysis of sound structure. The essays are written by specialists from Europe, Canada and the USA and discuss issues from three broad areas of phonology: the nature and representation of phonological features; the role and structure of... more...

  • Contexts of Subordinationby Laura Visapää; Jyrki Kalliokoski; Helena Sorva

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    The change from temporal to cause is one of the well-known grammaticalization paths. This article analyses the change in the Estonian conjunction kuna, ‘while; as, because’ from temporal to causal one as well as the attitude of the Estonian language planners towards this change. This change has mainly taken place during the twentieth century.... more...

  • Grammaticalization ? Theory and Databy Sylvie Hancil; Ekkehard König

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    Mulder and Thompson (2006, 2008) point out that the final hanging but ([X but ]) developed from initial but (X [ but Y]) through a sequence of formal reanalyses, and insightfully observe the functional and formal parallelism between the development of the hanging type of final but and the final particalization of the Japanese subordinator -... more...

  • Phonotaktisches Wissenby Johanna Steinberg

    De Gruyter Mouton 2014; US$ 140.00

    The mental organization of phonotactic knowledge and its role in language comprehension has not been adequately explained to date. Drawing on experimental physiological methods, the author offers evidence for the cognitive reality of phonotactic restrictions, thereby contributing to our understanding of how speech is processed. The book?s interdisciplinary... more...
