  • Lexical Template Morphologyby B. Roger Maylor

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 165.00

    While there have been many attempts in the literature to account for the semantics and syntax of individual German(ic)prefixes, this is the first time that the prefixes have been analysed in a unified way and a framework established that is capable of relating the prefixes to each other and to other areas of the grammar. The templates provide the means... more...

  • Middle Voiceby Markus Steinbach

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 195.00

    This book offers a completely new analysis of the syntax and semantics of transitive reflexive sentences in German, which is embedded in the major phenomenon of the middle voice in Indo-European languages. It integrates the interpretation of non-argument reflexives into a modified version of recent theories of binding. The ambiguity of the reflexive... more...

  • Quantifier Scope in Germanby Jürgen Pafel

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 195.00

    This book presents a comprehensive account of quantifier scope in German. The author investigates scope behavior of ordinary quantifiers and negative, adverbial, interrogative, relative and particle quantifiers. The areas which are dealt with include: relative scope in simple sentences, absolute and relative scope in complex sentences, noun-phrase... more...

  • Right Node Raising and Gappingby Katharina Hartmann

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 149.00

    This book investigates two elliptical coordinations in German, Right Node Raising and Gapping. Ellipsis in both constructions is claimed to be the result of a phonological process which is conditioned by prosodic and focus semantic constraints. It is convincingly argued that Right Node Raising cannot involve raising to the right periphery: The alleged... more...

  • The Semantics of Generics in Dutch and Related Languagesby Albert M. Oosterhof

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 173.00

    This monograph is a comprehensive study of the various ways in which genericity can be expressed in Dutch, dialects of Dutch, and languages related to Dutch. On the basis of empirical (corpus- and questionnaire-based) data, a wide range of topics are discussed which have been addressed in the literature on the semantics and pragmatics of generics.... more...

  • Verb Constructions in German and Dutchby Pieter A.M. Seuren; Gerard Kempen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 188.00

    German and Dutch verb constructions show a rich array of syntactic phenomena that have so far been underexposed in the literature, despite the fact that they have proved to be a source of substantial problems in theoretical grammar. The cross-linguistic study of verb constructions and complementation has been dominated by views deriving from... more...

  • Whose German?by Orrin W. Robinson

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 158.00

    The author addresses a number of issues in German and general phonology, using a specific problem in German phonology (the ach/ich alternation) as a springboard. These issues include especially the naturalness, or lack thereof, of the prescriptive standard in German, and the importance of colloquial pronunciations, as well as historical and dialect... more...

  • Extraction Asymmetriesby Tanja Kiziak

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 158.00

    This monograph addresses divergent views in the linguistic literature on whether German displays the that -trace effect and other subject/object asymmetries commonly found for long extractions in English and other languages. Using newly developed rating methodologies, the author exposes consistent and robust subject/object asymmetries in German ?... more...

  • Focus Particles in Germanby Stefan Sudhoff

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 158.00

    This study explores the grammar of focus particles in German. It gives a thorough description and analysis of focus particle constructions and links their syntactic, semantic, and information structural properties to their prosodic characteristics. The study also shows that focus particles present a particularly well-suited subject for the investigation... more...

  • Studies in West Frisian Grammarby Germen J. de Haan; Jarich Hoekstra; Willem Visser; Goffe Jensma

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 158.00

    In this volume, Germen de Haan gives a multi-faceted view of the syntax, sociolinguistics, and phonology of West-Frisian. The author discusses distinct aspects of the syntax of verbs in Frisian: finiteness and Verb Second, embedded root phenomena, the verbal complex, verbal complementation, and complementizer agreement. Because Frisian has minority... more...
