  • Saulby Magnus Schleich

    tredition 2014; US$ 2.78

    Saul, der erste König in Israel, gehört zu den tragischen biblischen Gestalten. Er scheitert an den Ansprüchen, die an ihn gestellt werden, aber auch an den eigenen ehrgeizigen Zielen. "Vollbringen war ihm keines geschenkt. Unter der Hand zerbrach ihm, was er eben voller Hoffnung angefasst hatte, und diese Erkenntnis zerriss ihn selbst, weil er... more...

  • Verb Clustersby Katalin É. Kiss; Henk van Riemsdijk

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 218.00

    Many languages have constructions in which verbs cluster. But few languages have verb clusters as rich and complex as Continental West Germanic and Hungarian. Furthermore the precise ordering properties and the variation in the cluster patterns are remarkably similar in Hungarian and Germanic. This similarity is, of course, unexpected since Hungarian... more...

In the spirit of the Minimalist research program, the analyses... more...

  • Approaches to Hungarianby Johan Brandtler; Valéria Molnár; Christer Platzack

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 195.00

    Mandatory phrasal prominence on a constituent in English is often attributed to the presence of a focus interpretation for that constituent, be it focus as discourse new or as selection among discourse relevant alternatives. It is argued here that these two functions of focus should be empirically distinguished and use of the notion “focus”... more...

  • Approaches to Hungarianby Katalin É. Kiss; Balázs Surányi; Éva Dékány

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2015; US$ 158.00

    The acoustic properties associated with prominence (e.g. duration, F0) may also serve for “phonemic” contrasts. The question is thus how speakers correctly interpret these properties. We address this question in terms of an extension of the Functional Load Hypothesis (FLH): given that vowel length is contrastive in Hungarian, the FLH predicts... more...
