  • 'COME' and 'GO' off the Beaten Grammaticalization Pathby Maud Devos; Jenneke van der Wal

    De Gruyter Mouton 2014; US$ 140.00

    This edition brings together some lesser known grammaticalization paths travelled by ?come? and ?go? in familiar and less familiar languages. No single book volume has been dedicated to the topic of grammatical targets different from tense and aspect so far. This study will increase our insight in grammaticalization processes in general as they force... more...

  • 'Subordination' versus 'Coordination' in Sentence and Textby Cathrine Fabricius-Hansen; Wiebke Ramm

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 165.00

    The papers collected in this volume (including a comprehensive introduction) investigate semantic and discourse-related aspects of subordination and coordination, in particular the relationship between subordination/coordination at the sentence level and subordination/coordination ? or hierarchical/non-hierarchical organization ? at the discourse level.... more...

  • 200 Years of Syntaxby Giorgio Graffi

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 210.00

    This book argues convincingly against the widespread opinion that very few syntactic studies were carried out before the 1950s. Relying on the detailed analysis of a large amount of original sources, it shows that syntactic matters were in fact carefully investigated throughout both the 19th century and during the first half of the 20th century. Moreover,... more...

  • A-Morphous Morphologyby Stephen R. Anderson

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 77.00

    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...

  • Abstract Phonology in a Concrete Modelby Tore Nesset

    De Gruyter Mouton 2008; US$ 182.00

    This book offers a welcome contribution to phonology and morphology, which have been understudied in cognitive linguistics. A detailed account of Russian verbs illustrates the efficacy of Cognitive Grammar as an insightful approach to abstract phonology that uses a restricted set of cognitively motivated theoretical constructs. The book is relevant... more...

  • Accentuation and Interpretationby Dr Hans-Christian Schmitz

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 110.00

    Develops a highly original theory of accentuation in which accentuation serves the mere pragmatic function of making utterances well comprehensible. Semantic effects of accentuation are explained as epiphenomena of pragmatic accentuation. The theory is formally elaborated in a model-theoretic framework and experimentally justified. more...

  • The Acquisition of Ergativityby Edith L. Bavin; Sabine Stoll

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 149.00

    Ergativity in Mayan languages is realized in the cross-referencing features on verbs rather than as case marking features on noun phrases. Overt absolutive markers appear with intransitive verbs. Some Mayan languages extend the ergative markers to intransitive verbs in aspectless complement clauses. The languages also make changes to transitive verbs... more...

  • Action, Comparison and Changeby Jaap Hoepelman

  • The Adjectival Categoryby D.N.S. Bhat

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1994; US$ 173.00

    This monograph sets out (i) to establish criteria for differentiating adjectives from other word-classes for languages in which they form a distinct category, and (ii) to establish criteria for determining their (non-)identity with words from other categories for languages in which they do not. As languages show various gradations in the extent to... more...
