  • Focus and Background in Romance Languagesby Andreas Dufter; Daniel Jacob

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 149.00

    Focus?background structure has taken center stage in much current theorizing about sentence prosody, syntax, and semantics. However, both the inventory of focus expressions found cross-linguistically and the interpretive consequences associated with each of these continue to be insufficiently described. This volume aims at providing new observations... 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.

In some Romance languages, the original opposition of case is lost, but the morphological... more...

OV sequences occur in the children’s productions between approximately 19 months and 2 years of age even though both adult English and Catalan display VO word order. I claim that OV sequences emerge in child English and Catalan after Telicity Phrase and... more...
