Book Information

   

Title: 'Subordination' versus 'Coordination' in Sentence and Text
Subtitle: A cross-linguistic perspective
Edited By: Cathrine Fabricius-Hansen
Wiebke Ramm
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%2098
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 98
Description:

The papers collected in this volume (including a comprehensive
introduction) investigate semantic and discourse-related aspects of
subordination and coordination, in particular the relationship between
subordination/coordination at the sentence level and
subordination/coordination - or hierarchical/non-hierarchical
organization - at the discourse level. The contributions in part I are
concerned with central theoretical questions; part II consists of
corpus-based cross-linguistic studies of clause combining and
discourse structure, involving at least two of the languages English,
German, Dutch, French and Norwegian; part III contains papers
addressing specific - predominantly semantic - topics relating to
German, English or French; and the papers in part IV approach the
topic of subordination, coordination and rhetorical relations from a
diachronic (Old Indic and Early Germanic) perspective. The book aims
to contribute to a better understanding of information packaging on
the sentence and text level related, within a particular language as
well as cross-linguistically.
