Title: Functional Approaches to Spanish Syntax
Subtitle: Lexical Semantics, Discourse and Transitivity
Edited By: J. Clancy Clements

Description:

The first usage-based approach of its kind, this volume contains twelve
studies on key issues in Spanish syntax: word order, null arguments,
grammatical-relation marking, inalienable possession, ser and estar,
adjective placement, small clauses and causatives. The studies are
approached within a broad functionalist perspective. The studies strengthen
the view that components of grammar intricately interact and that a
usage-based approach to analyzing them offers new and insightful
perspectives on some stubborn problems.
