  • The Semantics of Grammarby Anna Wierzbicka

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1988; US$ 224.00

    “The semantics of grammar” presents a radically semantic approach to syntax and morphology. It offers a methodology which makes it possible to demonstrate, on an empirical basis, that syntax is neither “autonomous” nor “arbitrary”, but that it follows from “semantics”. It is shown that every grammatical... more...

  • Vagueness and Language Useby Dr Paul Égré; Dr Nathan Klinedinst

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    This volume brings together twelve papers by linguists and philosophers contributing novel empirical and formal considerations to theorizing about vagueness. Three main issues are addressed: gradable expressions and comparison, the semantics of degree adverbs and intensifiers (such as 'clearly'), and ways of evading the sorites paradox. more...

  • Contextsby Stefano Predelli

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 38.99

    Stefano Predelli comes to the defence of the traditional 'formal' approach to natural-language semantics, arguing that it has been misrepresented not only by its critics, but also by its foremost defenders. In Contexts he offers a fundamental reappraisal, with particular attention to the treatment of indexicality and other forms of contextual... more...

  • Process, Image, and Meaningby Wolfgang Wildgen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1994; US$ 165.00

    The general topic of this book is the development of a “realistic” model of meaning; it has to account for the ecological basis of meaning in perception, action, and interaction, and is realistic in the sense of “scientific realism”, i.e. it is based on the most successful paradigm of modern science: dynamical systems theory.... more...

  • Recent Trends in Meaning?Text Theoryby Leo Wanner

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 158.00

    The present volume contains articles of well-known representatives of the Meaning-Text Theory (MTT) and other related linguistic theories. Founded by I. Mel’cuk and A. Zholkovsky in the sixties in Moscow, MTT soon became known in the West as a “prominent outsider” theory. The picture changed since then, though. MTT gained importance... more...

  • Formale Semantik und natürliche Spracheby Horst Lohnstein

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 524.00

    Modern linguistics makes increasing use of abstract theories to describe the human capacity for language. This textbook provides a clear overview of the current theoretical concepts and analytical methods; in addition, it explains the technical foundations of formal semantics. It is structured as an aid to teaching and learning, with large numbers... more...

  • Jahrbuch für Germanistische Sprachgeschichte (2011)by Hans Ulrich Schmid; Arne Ziegler

    Walter de Gruyter 2011; US$ 150.00

    Die Gesellschaft für Germanistische Sprachgeschichte (GGSG) zählt zu ihren satzungsgemäßen Aufgaben die Durchführung von Jahrestagungen, auf denen jeweils die laufenden sprachhistorischen Diskussionen in ausgewählten thematischen Bereichen reflektiert werden. Auf diese Weise wird ein wechselndes, aber stets aktuelles Bild sprachhistorischer Forschung... more...

  • Meaning and Universal Grammarby Cliff Goddard; Anna Wierzbicka

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 180.00

    This book develops a bold new approach to universal grammar, based on research findings of the natural semantic metalanguage (NSM) program. The key idea is that universal grammar is constituted by the inherent grammatical properties of some 60 empirically established semantic primes, which appear to have concrete exponents in all languages. For six... more...
