  • 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...

    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.

  • Discourse Particlesby Werner Abraham

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1991; US$ 173.00

    This book is about particles in the narrower sense of the word as opposed to the broader meaning covering all uninflected words of a language. In the narrower meaning of the linguistic term particles can be distinguished between logical, or scalar particles and modal, or pragmatic particles. The semantic, pragmatic and syntactic properties of modal... more...

  • On Extraction and Extraposition in Germanby Uli Lutz; Jürgen Pafel

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1996; US$ 180.00

    Extraction has traditionally been one of the main topics in generative grammar, and it retains this status in current variants of the theory. German provides a good testing ground for traditional as well as current theories of extraction. The nine contributions to this volume document the recent lively discussions on the adequate analyses of extraction... more...

  • Phonetics and Phonology of Tense and Lax Obstruents in Germanby Michael Jessen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 195.00

    Knowing that the so-called voiced and voiceless stops in languages like English and German do not always literally differ in voicing, several linguists — among them Roman Jakobson — have proposed that dichotomies such as fortis/lenis or tense/lax might be more suitable to capture the invariant phonetic core of this distinction. Later it... more...
