  • A-Gby

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 377.00

    The 3-volume dictionary presents words in German that have opposed readings as part of their individual polysemy. Such an opposite meaning is, for an individual word, analogous to the common antonymy that exists between different words. The concept of opposite meaning is relatively unknown and, in contrast to synonym and anytonym dictionaries, there... more...

  • About the Speakerby Alessandra Giorgi

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 44.99

    This book considers important aspects of the syntax of sentences and their relation to the extra-sentential context. The relation between a sentence and the context is frequently reckoned to be in some sense <"syntax-free>", in that it is not syntactically represented but introduced post-syntactically by semantic rules of interpretation.... more...

  • Accessing Noun-Phrase Antecedents (RLE Linguistics B: Grammar)by Mira Ariel

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    This book offers a radical shift in the analysis of discourse anaphora, from a purely pragmatic account to a cognitive account, in terms of processing procedures. Referring expressions are defined as markers signalling the degree of Accessibility in memory of the antecedent. This analysis yields an astonishing array of new results. The precise distribution... more...

  • Advances in Frame Semanticsby Mirjam Fried; Kiki Nikiforidou

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 128.00

    Construction grammarians are still quite reluctant to extend their descriptions to units beyond the sentence. However, the theoretical premises of construction grammar and frame semantics are particularly suited to cover spoken interaction from a cognitive perspective. Furthermore, as construction grammar is anchored in the cognitive linguistics paradigm... more...

  • Alignment in Communicationby Ipke Wachsmuth; Jan de Ruiter; Petra Jaecks; Stefan Kopp

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 149.00

    In accordance with accumulating evidence from research, we assume a strong but flexible relation between emotional and communicative alignment in interaction. The communicative function of emotional adaptation, the processing of emotions on all linguistic levels and the empirical evidence in studies with neurological patient groups support our approach.... more...

  • Antonymyby Steven Jones

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 175.00

    Antonymy is the technical name used to describe 'opposites', pairs of words such as rich/poor, love/hate and male/female. This book provides a detailed and comprehensive account of the phenomenon. more...

  • Aspects of Meaning Constructionby GŁnter Radden; Klaus-Michael KŲpcke; Thomas Berg; Peter Siemund

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 165.00

    Meaning does not reside in linguistic units but is constructed in the minds of the language users. Meaning construction is an on-line mental activity whereby speech participants create meanings on the basis of underspecified linguistic units. The construction of meaning is guided by cognitive principles. The contributions collected in the volume focus... more...

  • Bridging and Relevanceby Tomoko Matsui

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 165.00

    While it has long been taken for granted that context or background information plays a crucial role in reference assignment, there have been very few serious attempts to investigate exactly how they are used. This study provides an answer to the question through an extensive analysis of cases of bridging. The book demonstrates that when encountering... 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...
