Title: Syntactic Gradience
Subtitle: The Nature of Grammatical Indeterminacy
Written By: Bas Aarts
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199219278
Description:

This is the first exhaustive investigation of gradience in syntax,
conceived of as grammatical indeterminacy. It looks at gradience in English
word classes, phrases, clauses and constructions, and examines how it may
be recognized, defined, and differentiated. Bas Aarts considers the degree
to which gradience is a grammatical phenomenon or a by-product of imperfect
linguistic description, and makes a series of linked proposals for its
theoretical formalization. His book will appeal to scholars and students of
language and syntactic theory in departments of linguistics, philosophy and
cognitive science.
