  • Romance Perspectives on Construction Grammarby Hans C. Boas; Francisco Gonzálvez-García

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    Spanish constructions of telic motion with manner verbs are somewhat problematic for the Talmian typology, while also posing a challenge for constructionist frameworks anchored in English grammar. In response to Talmy (2000), Aske (1989), Morimoto (2008), and Beavers et al. (2010) among others, I demonstrate in this article that this construction type... more...

  • Profiling Discourse Participantsby Barbara De Cock

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    The construction of discourse is a challenging field where many discourse structures and interactional effects remain poorly understood. This analysis provides a systematic explanation for the way in which discourse participants (speaker and hearer) are construed in Spanish through a corpus-driven analysis of informal conversation, TV-debates and parliamentary... more...

  • The Acquisition of French as a Second Languageby Christina Lindqvist; Camilla Bardel

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 128.00

    It has been argued that the study of child L2 development can inform different maturational accounts of language acquisition. One such specific proposal was put forward by Meisel (2008), arguing for a cut-off point for monolingual or bilingual first language acquisition — (2)L1 — type of development at 3–4 years. The paper analyses... more...

  • Auxiliary Selection in Spanishby Malte Rosemeyer

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    Although usage-based linguistics emphasises the need for studies of language change to take frequency effects into account, there is a lack of research that tries to systematically model frequency effects and their relation to diffusion processes in language change. This monograph offers a diachronic study of the change in Spanish perfect auxiliary... more...
