Grammar and Conceptualization documents some major developments in the
theory of cognitive grammar during the last decade. It brings together
twelve previous articles (not all easily accessible) which have been
substantially revised and integrated to form a coherent and cohesive
work. Included are basic theoretical statements, analyses and
descriptions of particular phenomena, as well as a preview of future
research.

Among the areas examined are clause structure, tense and aspect,
possessives and other reference point phenomena, generics and habituals,
quantifier constructions, pronominal anaphora, complementation,
"raising" constructions, and the meaning of OF. Theoretical issues
addressed include the characterization of grammatical relations, the
status of constituency, the grammatical role of metonymy, parallels
between PERception and CONception, the nature of grammaticization, the
usage-based account of learning and wellformedness, the need to posit
multiple conceptual "planes", the justification of descriptive
constructs, and the essential dynamicity of conceptual structure.

By further articulating the framework and showing its application to
numerous domains of linguistic structure, this book substantiates the
claim that lexicon, morphology, and syntax form a gradation consisting
of assemblies of symbolic structures (form-meaning pairings). Grammar is
thus inherently meaningful, its schematic semantic value residing in
particular ways of construing conceptual content.

Message 2: Indo-European Ling: Die Funktionen der lokalen Kasus im Tocharischen

Die Funktionen der lokalen Kasus im Tocharischen

2000. 23 x 15,5 cm. xxii, 442 pages.

This volume, written in German, deals with the use of the local cases in
Tocharian A and Tocharian B, Indo-European languages of the Tarim Basin,
Eastern Central Asia, of the 6th - 9th centuries AD. Tocharian differs
typologically from most of the other Indo-European languages in that it
is basically inflectional-agglutinative. This tendency is dominant in
the case system: generally, local relations are expressed by local cases
alone, and adpositional phrases are used only in order to express more
specific local relations.

The study concentrates on the local cases expressing location and
direction (i.e. oblique, allative, perlative, and locative) in the
following contexts:
- case constructions expressing concrete or abstract local relations
- case constructions expressing temporal relations
- adpositional constructions expressing local and temporal relations.

The uses of the local cases with various reference objects is presented.
A theoretical discussion of the nature of the respective local cases and
a reconstruction of a possible evolution of the function of the cases
from Proto-Tocharian to Tocharian A and Tocharian B concludes this
study.

Locality in Tocharian is a field in which almost no research has been
carried out, and in this sense this study fills a slot within the field
of Indo-European syntax.

This book is of special interest to historical and comparative
linguists, especially those working with Indo-European languages, to
general linguists interested in localism and specialists in Central
Asian languages.
