  • Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 2008by Reineke Bok-Bennema; Brigitte Kampers-Manhe; Bart Hollebrandse

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 165.00

    This paper pursues an analysis of verbs like Italian mordicchiare (nibble) as event-internal pluractional verbs that denote composite single events where the predicate is distributed on the fragments of one entity, and grammaticise a local form of number through the part-of relation. This opens the possibility of reading number marking in aspectual... more...

  • La négation dans les langues romanesby Franck Floricic

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 158.00

    Negation has always been and still is a central topic in typological studies and theoretical research.
