  • 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.

  • Partitive Cases and Related Categoriesby Silvia Luraghi; Tuomas Huumo

    De Gruyter Mouton 2014; US$ 182.00

    Argument-marking, morphological partitives have been the topic of language specific studies, while no cross-linguistic or typological analyses have been conducted. Since individual partitives of different languages have been studied, there exists a basis for a more cross-linguistic approach. The purpose of this book is to fill the gap and to bring... more...

  • Structuring the Argumentby Asaf Bachrach; Isabelle Roy; Linnaea Stockall

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    We investigate so-called causative psych nominalizations (CPNs), i.e., nominalizations of object experiencer (OE) verbs that realize non-agentive causers as external arguments. While they are ruled out in English (Grimshaw 1990; Iwata 1995; Pesetsky 1995) and have been suggested to be cross-linguistically banned (Landau 2010), we show that Romanian... more...

  • Ditransitives in British English Dialectsby Johanna Gerwin

    De Gruyter Mouton 2014; US$ 140.00

    What determines whether we say She gave him a book instead of She gave a book to him? The author views this ?dative alternation? as a sociolinguistic variable and explores its distribution across different British English dialects, registers and time frames. It thereby offers a novel, language-external explanation of the choice of one construction... more...

  • Advances in Sociophoneticsby Chiara Celata; Silvia Calamai

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This paper describes the phonetic form, the distribution and the possible functions of ejectives in English and German, proposing that ejectives are on the increase in different varieties in English. The problems of teasing apart the different contributions of allophonic regularity, interactional function, sociophonetic variability and epiphenomenal... more...

  • Noun Valencyby Olga Spevak

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This article has two objectives. The first is to present an account of valency nouns in Latin. Lyons’ typology (1977) envisaging three orders of entities is useful for predicting the number and type of complements used with various nouns. Expansions of all the categories are distinguished: concrete entities, relational nouns, agent nouns, verbal... more...
