Causatives in Minimalism (Linguistik Aktuell Linguistics Today)

This monograph reviews problems with present minimalist hindrance, comparable to even if adjustments within the expression of argument and syntactic constitution can all be attributed to the parameterization of particular sensible heads. specifically, this e-book reports in-depth the level to which version within the expression of causation, on hand either intra- and crosslinguistically, might be accounted for by means of attractive in simple terms to the microparameterization of the causative head, reason, as formerly argued for by means of linguists resembling Pylkk?

The Grammar of Space

A cross-linguistic learn of grammatical morphemes expressing spatial relationships that discusses the connection among the best way humans event area and how it's encoded grammatically in language. The dialogue of the similarities and ameliorations between languages within the encoding and expression of spatial family members facilities round the emergence and evolution of spatial grams, and the semantic and morphosyntactic features of 2 forms of spatial grams.

Argument Structure in Usage-Based Construction Grammar: Experimental and corpus-based perspectives

The argument constitution of verbs, outlined because the a part of grammar that bargains with how members in verbal occasions are expressed in clauses, is a classical subject in linguistics that has bought substantial recognition within the literature. This ebook investigates argument constitution in English from a usage-based point of view, taking the view that the cognitive illustration of grammar is formed by way of language use, and that an important elements of grammatical association are tied to the frequency with which phrases and syntactic buildings are used.

Sample text

As stated above, the main intention of the study is to analyse the constraints that govern cases of ad hoc coordination, which is why irreversibles fall outside the scope of the main analysis. Irreversible binomials are, however, investigated in Chapter 6, which compares reversible and irreversible instances. 5 Theoretical and disciplinary orientation While this book addresses the specific linguistic problem of constituent ordering in the constructions delineated above, it is related to frameworks and theoretical approaches of more general concern.

As all of the above-mentioned instances of hierarchies are dependent on the culture which generated them, it is likely that languages in other parts of the world may differ with regard to this constraint, for instance by a possible femalefirst rule (see Landsberg 1995a for a discussion of this issue). However, we do find hierarchical relations not located in the sociocultural realm, which I also subsume under this constraint. This is the reason why it is not termed power here. For instance, a tendency for the greater of two (numerical) values to precede the lesser can be observed when both are located on the same scale (see Benor and Levy 2006: 239) as in: (28) a.

3 Iconic sequencing Iconic sequencing is the semantic-pragmatic factor most often mentioned in the literature on binomials (Malkiel 1959; Huber 1974; Cooper and Ross 1975; Fenk-Oczlon 1989; Landsberg 1995a; Widdows and Dorow 2005). It signifies that the order of elements that is perceived in the extra-linguistic world is mirrored in the order of linguistic elements. This principle also appears in language production research: Levelt (1981) relates it to an event structure which is mirrored in linguistic structure (see detailed discussion in Chapter 8).
