Abstract:

This book is a follow-up on the Semiotactics Workshop, held on March 26th
2010 at Leiden University. Semiotactics, as developed by the Dutch linguist
Carl Ebeling, is a linguistic theory which provides an analytical tool for
the description and understanding of meaning in relation to syntax. This
relation is discussed in the collection of articles in this book, written
by eight different authors and covering a wide range of topics from various
living languages, i.e.Dutch, English, Russian, Modern Japanese,
Makassarese, Indonesian, and two extinct languages that are only known from
written sources, i.e. Classical Mongolian and Old Javanese.

In the introduction an overview is given of the most important features of
the theory and its descriptive notation system. In the subsequent papers
various linguistic structures are analyzed, using the Semiotactic
framework. The subjects that are analyzed and discussed are: verbal
ellipsis, partitive genitives, lexical stratification of adjectives,
gerunds, passives and transitivity, verb phrase constructions, the
morphology and syntax of number, and prepositional polysemy. This book is
of interest for both theoretical and descriptive linguists studying the
relation between syntax and semantics.
