Abstract:

In this volume leading researchers present new work on the semantics and
pragmatics of adjectives and adverbs, and their interfaces with syntax. Its
concerns include the semantics of gradability; the relationship between
adjectival scales and verbal aspect; the relationship between meaning and
the positions of adjectives and adverbs in nominal and verbal projections;
and the fine-grained semantics of different subclasses of adverbs and
adverbs. Its goals are to provide a comprehensive vision of the
linguistically significant structural and interpretive properties of
adjectives and adverbs, to highlight the similarities between these two
categories, and to signal the importance of a careful and detailed
integration of lexical and compositional semantics.

The editors open the book with an overview of current research before
introducing and contextualizing the remaining chapters. The work is aimed
at scholars and advanced students of syntax, semantics, formal pragmatics,
and discourse. It will also appeal to researchers in philosophy,
psycholinguistics, and language acquisition interested in the syntax and
semantics of adjectives and adverbs.

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics
                            Semantics
                            Syntax

Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations

that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
