Zur Typologie der sprachlichen Repraesentation konzeptueller Relationen

CHRISTIAN LEHMANN, YONG-MIN SHIN, & ELISABETH VERHOEVEN

Die vorliegende typologische Studie ist im Ueberlappungsbereich zwischen
den funktionalen Domaenen Partizipation und Possession angesiedelt. In
einer gegebenen Situation unterhalten die Situationsbeteiligten
Beziehungen zum Situationskern, aber auch untereinander. Bei der
sprachlichen Umsetzung dieser konzeptuellen Relationen verhalten sich
die Sprachen der Welt hoechst unterschiedlich, je nachdem welcher dieser
Relationen sie im Ausdruck den Vorzug geben. Die Autoren zeigen die
diesbezueglichen Ausdrucksstrategien fuer verschiedene Situationstypen
und die systematischen Zusammenhaenge zwischen ihnen auf. Im Mittelpunkt
der Untersuchung stehen die Sprachen B�t�, Deutsch, Koreanisch,
Samoanisch, Tamil, Tuerkisch, Vietnamesisch, Wardaman und Yukatekisch.

Dependency reversal in noun-attributive constructions: towards a
typology

ANDREJ L. MALCHUKOV
Russian Academy of Sciences

This study is conceived as a contribution to a tyoplogy of attributive
contructions, focussing on constructions exhibiting splits of head
proporties. The term "dependency reversal in noun-attributive
constructions" (DNRA) is used to refer to possessive-like attributive
constructions (of the type (that) idiot of a doctor), with the
attribute surfacing as the formal head and the semantic head surfacing
as the formal possessor. The body of the study presents a discussion
of DNRA contructions as attested in six individual languages: Even
(resp. Other Tungusic languages), Aleut, Hausa, Gude, Chinook and
Latin. The variation of the DNRA patterns, in particular along the
parameter of the attribute's upgrading/recategorization, is further
considered. Following the lines of structure-based typologies, an
upward taxonomy of DNRA structures is presented to include other cases
of constructions involving the attribute's upgrading and the head
(-to-possessor) demotion. In search of DNRA related patterns the
discussion is extended to internal relative clauses and constructions
with "dominant attributes". Finally factors favouring the rise of DNRA
structures are tentatively considered: apart from diachronic factors,
underdifferentiation of lexical categories as well as pragmatic
salience of the attribute are shown to contribute to DNRA processes.
