Abstract:

Linguistic mismatch occurs when formal devices such as words,
morphemes, and grammatical constructions are recruited to perform
semiotic functions distinct from those for which they were apparently
developed. One example is that of quantificational nouns: while the
typical function of a noun is to denote an object or entity, the
English nouns lot and bunch perform a function otherwise associated
with quantifiers. How do such phenomena challenge traditional
conceptions of grammar? How do competing theories of the
syntax-semantics interface stand up when confronted with mismatch
phenomena?

Mismatch addresses these questions through the efforts of some of the
most original thinkers in syntactic and semantic theory, exploring a
wide variety of mismatch phenomena in a broad sampling of languages.
