  • Reflecting the Mindby Eros Corazza

    Clarendon Press 2004; US$ 114.99

    Eros Corazza presents a fascinating investigation of the role that indexicals (e.g. 'I', 'she', 'this', 'today', 'here') play in our thought. Indexicality is crucial to the understanding of such puzzling issues as the nature of the self, the nature of perception, social interaction, psychological pathologies,... more...

  • Perspectives on Semantic Rolesby Silvia Luraghi; Heiko Narrog

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This paper targets the phenomenon of non valence-governed datives of affectedness linked to possession. By adopting a constructional approach based on Goldberg (1995) and a revision of Raineri and Evola (2008), I work out a grid that may be adopted for cross-linguistic purposes. By applying this model to German, French and Italian, I show that the... more...

  • The 25 Rules of Grammarby Joseph Piercy

    Michael O'Mara 2014; US$ 9.99

    English grammar is often said to be over-complicated and difficult to get to grips with but the truth is that, while there are certain rules that should be obeyed, the language evolves and develops over time - and quite rightly so. In this book, Joseph Piercy outlines the 25 rules that should be adhered to in written and spoken English, defining the... more...

  • The Building Blocks of Meaningby Michele Prandi

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 203.00

    The shaping of complex meanings depends on punctual and relational coding and inferencing. Coding is viewed as a vector which can run either from expression to content or from concepts to (linguistic) forms to mark independent conceptual relations. While coding relies on systematic resources internal to language, inferencing essentially depends on... more...

  • Cognitive Semantics and Scientific Knowledgeby András Kertész

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    The book focuses on the question of how and to what extent cognitive semantic approaches can contribute to the new field of the cognitive science of science. The argumentation is based on a series of instructive case studies which are intended to test the prospects and limits of the metascientific application of both holistic and modular cognitive... more...

  • Probing Semantic Relationsby Alain Auger; Caroline Barričre

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 128.00

    Semantic relations are at the core of any representational system, and are keys to enable the next generation of information processing systems with semantic and reasoning capabilities. Acquisition, description, and formalization of semantic relations are fundamentals in computer-based systems where natural language processing is required. Probing... more...

  • Linguistic Emotivityby Senko K. Maynard

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 195.00

    Linguistic Emotivity explores expressive and emotive meanings in Japanese from the perspective of the Place of Negotiation theory. The Place of Negotiation theory provides a framework for understanding how linguistic signs function in the place of communication (in cognitive, emotive, and interactional places). The theory finds the indexicality of... more...

  • Meaning and Cognitionby Liliana Albertazzi

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 128.00

    The aim of this book is to present significant aspects of cognitive grammar by adopting an interdisciplinary approach. The book provides an interplay of contributions by some exponents of cognitive grammar (Langacker, Croft, Wood, Geeraerts, Kövecses, Wildgen), and philosophers of language (Albertazzi, Marconi, Peruzzi, Violi) who, in most cases, share... more...

  • Semantic Processing for Finite Domainsby Martha Stone Palmer

    Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 43.00

    This book aims to look at the semantics of natural languages in context. more...

  • Renewing Meaningby Stephen J Barker

    Clarendon Press 2004; US$ 124.99

    At the birth of analytic philosophy Frege created a paradigm that is centrally important to how meaning has been understood in the twentieth century. Frege invented the now familiar distinctions of sense and force, of sense and reference, of concept and object. He introduced the conception of sentence meaning as residing in truth-conditions and argued... more...
