Title: New Applications of Role and Reference
Edited By: Eva Staudinger
Description:

The first part is comprised of seven articles dealing with possible
applications of RRG to diachronic syntax and grammaticalization. Beside an
overview article, the papers are mainly concerned with changes either in
the interaction between topic-focus structure and the Layered Structure of
the Clause or in the selection of Privileged Syntactic Arguments and case
assignment. The second part consists of applications of RRG to Romance
languages, and most of these applications are mainly concerned with the
syntax-semantics interface. Different aspects of verbs (verbs as operators,
verbs as sentence predicates, verb alternations) and the syntactic and
semantic structures they involve are analyzed from an RRG perspective.
