Message 1: New Books in Syntax and Morphology

Date: Mon, 06 Jul 1998 10:12:35 -0400
From: Erin Igoe <EMIOUP-USA.ORG>
Subject: New Books in Syntax and Morphology

Elizabeth M. O'Dowd, St Michael's College, Vermont

Elizabeth M. O'Dowd offers a new, discourse-functional account of the
categories "preposition" and "particle" in English. She explains why
certain words have membership in both categories, and solves many
intriguing puzzles long associated with the syntax and semantics of
these words. Based on linguistic data extracted from a series of actual
conversations, O'Dowd provides new insights into how prepositions and
particles are used, and how their meanings can change across different
discourse contexts over time.
