Title: Exploring the Syntax-Semantics Interface
Written By: RobertDVan Valin
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521811791
Description:

While all languages can achieve the same basic communicative ends, they
each use different means to achieve them, particularly in the divergent
ways that syntax, semantics and pragmatics interact across languages.
Written within the framework of Role and Reference Grammar, which proposes
a set of rules to link semantic and syntactic relations to each other,
this book discusses in detail how structure, meaning, and communicative
function interact in human languages. Clearly written and comprehensive,
it will be welcomed by all those working on the interface between syntax,
semantics and pragmatics.
