This book provides an overview of basic syntactic categories, analytical methods and theoretical frameworks that are needed for a comprehensive and systematic description and analysis of the syntax of English as it is spoken and written today.

It is therefore useful for students of the English language but also for teachers who are looking for an overview of traditional syntactic analysis. This chapter shows that the Auxiliary Selection Hierarchy provides a generalization that captures the systematic variation exhibited by intransitive verbs in their choice of auxiliary across a number of languages.

By doing so, it offers a stronger empirical basis to a range of observations and data that had been presented in the literature on split intransitivity. In book: Gradience in Grammar, pp a violation of an IS constraint will allow contextual variation and will thus result in gradience.

Description Syntactic gradience EPUB

There will be no weak syntactic constraints, only. question of delineating syntactic phrases from compounds. More importantly, they provide evidence for constructional gradience in the domain of the noun phrase. It will be shown that there is gradience within s-genitives (between determiner and descriptive genitives), as well as gradience between the constructions of s-genitivesCited by: Welcome to e-content platform of John Benjamins Publishing Company.

For decades, generative linguistics has said little about the differences between verbs, nouns, and adjectives. This book seeks to fill this theoretical gap by presenting simple and substantive syntactic definitions of these three lexical categories. Mark C.

Baker claims that the various superficial differences found in particular languages have a single underlying source which can. This paper traces the history of the notion of gradience in language studies. Gradience is a cover term to designate a spectrum of continuous phenomena in language, from categories at the level of grammar to sounds at the level of phonetics.

(mainly syntactic) approaches to gradience. book deals predominantly with gradience in phonology Cited by: The aim of this chapter is to discuss the role of syntactic argumentation in the description of English grammar. The chapter first discusses some of the general principles that are used in syntactic argumentation, namely economy and elegance, which are regarded as two dimensions of simplicity.

These principles are then exemplified in a number of case studies. SUMMARYThis book deals with syntactic gradience in the sense of categorical gradience,which has a rather disputed status in modern linguistic theorizing: Whereasscholars working in a formalist framework tend to even deny the existence ofsuch a phenomenon by assigning it an epiphenomenal status, within thefunctionalist school, categorical.

It discusses an intermediate speech repertoire that exists in the province of Limburg, the Netherlands. In this repertoire, some constructions are difficult to obtain.

It also talks about acceptability judgments that are given by local dialect speakers in the same area.
