  • 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...

    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...

  • 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...
