Abstract:

Apposition in Contemporary English is the first full-length treatment of
apposition. It provides detailed discussion of its linguistic
characteristics and of its usage in various kinds of speech and writing,
derived from the data of British and American computer corpora. Charles
Meyer demonstrates the inadequacies of previous studies and argues that
apposition is a grammatical relation realized by constructions having
particular syntactic, semantic and pragmatic characteristics, of which
certain are dominant. The language of press reportage, fiction, learned
writing and spontaneous conversation is analyzed.
