Abstract:

This book presents a new paradigm of natural language grammar analysis,
based on adposition as the key concept, considered a general connection
between two morphemes---or group of morphemes. The adpositional paradigm
considers the morpheme as the basic unit to represent morphosyntax, taken
as a whole, in terms of constructions, while semantics and pragmatics are
treated accordingly. All linguistic observations within the book can be
described through the methods and tools of Constructive Mathematics, so
that the modelling become formally feasible. A full description in
category-theoretic terms of the formal model is provided in the Appendix. A
lot of examples taken from natural languages belonging to different
typological areas are offered throughout the volume, in order to explain
and validate the modeling---with a special attention to ergativity.
Finally, a first real-world application of the paradigm is given, i.e.,
conversational analysis of the transcript of therapeutic settings in terms
of constructive speech acts. The main goal of this book is to broaden the
scope of Linguistics by including Constructive Mathematics in order to deal
with known topics such as grammaticalization, children speech, language
comparison, dependency and valency from a different perspective. It
primarily concerns advanced students researchers in the field of
Theoretical and Mathematical Linguistics but the audience can also include
scholars interested in applications of Topos Theory in Linguistics.
