  • Events, Arguments, and Aspectsby Klaus Robering

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    The aspectual interpretation of sentences is constrained by the truth conditions predicates impose on points of times or time intervals. Using data from English, Vendler (1967) established a classification of four verb types on these grounds, that has been widely accepted in linguistic theory. Various researchers, among them Dowty (1979) for English... more...

  • Events of Putting and Takingby Anetta Kopecka; Bhuvana Narasimhan

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2012; US$ 149.00

    Events of putting things in places, and removing them from places, are fundamental activities of human experience. But do speakers of different languages construe such events in the same way when describing them? This volume investigates placement and removal event descriptions from 18 areally, genetically, and typologically diverse languages. Each... more...

  • Evidentialityby Alexandra Y. Aikhenvald

    Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 67.99

    Evidentiality is one of the most fascinating categories of human languages. In a number of languages, scattered across the world, every statement must contain a specification of the type of evidence on which it is based - whether the speaker saw it, or heard it, or inferred it from indirect evidence, or learnt it from somebody else. This is a very... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 158.00

    This book uses Sperber and Wilson?s Relevance Theory to show how evidential expressions can be analysed in a unified semantic/pragmatic framework. The first part surveys general linguistic work on evidentials, presents speech-act theory and examines Grice?s theory of meaning and communication with emphasis on three main issues: for linguistically encoded... more...

  • Explorations in Semantics and Pragmaticsby Geoffrey N. Leech

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1980; US$ 102.00

    The aim of this book is to show the way forward to a coherent view of language in which the achievement of the formalist paradigm is strengthened to the extent that its claims are weakened. A formal theory such as generative grammar is a special theory which is to be subsumed in a general theory of linguistic communication that also includes pragmatics.... more...

  • The Extent of the Literalby Dr Marina Rakova

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 160.00

    The Extent of the Literal develops a strikingly new approach to metaphor and polysemy in their relation to the conceptual structure. In a straightforward narrative style, the author argues for a reconsideration of standard assumptions concerning the notion of literal meaning and its relation to conceptual structure. She draws on neurophysiological... more...
