    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1996; US$ 195.00

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 63.00

  • Generative Phonologyby Nigel Love

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1981; US$ 158.00

    This study is a discussion of, rather than a contribution to, generative phonology. The central question posed, is: Does linguistic theory provide a basis for choosing between competing grammars ? that is, an evaluation procedure for grammars? If so, then what is its form? If not, then how are we to interpret controversies between linguists as to the... more...

  • Lexiques-Grammaires comparés en françaisby Jacques Labelle; Christian Leclère

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1995; US$ 158.00

    In most French linguistic studies, the object is so-called standard French, a rather woolly and reductive designation. The particularities of national languages such as Belgian and Quebec French are often forgotten or treated as outlandish facts. The first Montreal conference Lexiques grammaires comparés , on the contrary, deals with the formal... more...

  • Theoretical Morphology of the French Verbby James Foley

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1979; US$ 165.00

    The analysis of French verbs presented in this monograph is neither a synchronic nor a diachronic description, but rather a theoretical achronic analysis whose goal is the explanation of the historical phonetic development of the French verb in terms of changes in the underlying abstract morphological forms. One of the basic premises of this book is... more...

  • Case Suspension and Binary Complement Structure in Frenchby Julia Herschensohn

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1996; US$ 158.00

    Adopting the theoretical framework of the minimalist program, this study of syntactic limitations on complement configuration investigates the link between thematic external arguments and case. Using evidence from pronominal, psychological experiencer, and inalienable constructions, it argues that both accusative and dative are structural cases in... more...

  • The Cognitive System of the French Verbby John Hewson

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 158.00

    This study is based on the writings and teaching of Gustave Guillaume (1883-1960), one of the earliest proponents of what is today called Cognitive Linguistics. It offers (1) a much needed presentation in English of Guillaume’s view of the French system, (2) the clarifications added by his successors, and (3) much empirical detail added by the... more...

  • The Pragmatics of Left Detachment in Spoken Standard Frenchby Betsy K. Barnes

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1985; US$ 102.00

    Left detachment constructions (LDs) (e.g. un buffet de campagne, c?est un meuble ) are examined in a corpus of informal spontaneous conversation between educated native speakers of French. The overwhelming majority of these constructions are shown to have a clearly pragmatic motivation. The author?s observations support a view of LD in French as a... more...
