  • Frames of Understanding in Text and Discourseby Alexander Ziem

    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...

  • 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...
