It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Lexical Semantics in LFG
Edited By: Miriam Butt
Tracy Holloway King
Series Title: Studies in Constraint-Based Lexicalism

Available for the first time in years, Lexical Semantics in LFG is a
reissue of the groundbreaking "Papers in Lexical Functional Grammar." It
spans a diverse range of topics, including Italian unaccusatives,
Malayalam causatives, derived nominals, resultatives, and non-nominative
subjects in Icelandic. With its emphasis on representations of lexical
semantic information that allow operations on predicate-argument relations
and grammatical relations to be independent of structural configurations,
the text will be of interest to both scholars and students of linguistics.
