Negation is a central feature of language and cognition, interacting with all areas of grammar as well as with the philosophy of language. Whereas there is a cross-linguistic uniformity in logical and semantic aspects of negation, there is a diversity of syntactic and morphological forms and rules. …
Reciprocals and Semantic Typology (Typological Studies in Language, Book 98)

Reciprocals and Semantic Typology (Typological Studies in Language, Book 98) by Nicholas Evans, Alice Gaby, Stephen C. Levinson and Asifa Majid
English | 2011 | ISBN: 9027206791 | 358 pages | PDF | 10,3 MB

Reciprocals are an increasingly hot topic in linguistic research. This reflects the intersection of several factors: the semantic and syntactic complexity of reciprocal constructions, their centrality to some key points of linguistic theorizing (such as Binding Conditions on anaphors within Government and Binding Theory), and the centrality of reciprocity to theories of social structure, human evolution and social cognition.
Information Structure and Syntactic Change in Germanic and Romance Languages

Focus Structure in Generative Grammar: An Integrated Syntactic, Semantic and Intonational Approach (Repost)

Focus Structure in Generative Grammar: An Integrated Syntactic, Semantic and Intonational Approach
Publisher: ohn Benjamins Publ | 2004 | ISBN: 1588115038/9027227926 | English | True PDF | 443 pages | 2.32 Mb

The notion of focus structure in this work refers to the distinction between categorical, thetic and identificational sentences. The central claim is that the syntactic representation of every sentence has to encode which of these types of focus structure is realized. This claim is discussed in great detail with respect to syntax, intonation and semantics within the framework of the Minimalist Program…

The notion of focus structure in this work refers to the distinction between categorical, thetic and identificational sentences. The central claim is that the syntactic representation of every sentence has to encode which of these types of focus structure is realized. This claim is discussed in great detail with respect to syntax, intonation and semantics within the framework of the Minimalist Program. It is shown that the incorporation of focus structure into syntax offers new perspectives for a solution of vexing problems in syntax and semantics.
