Book Information

   

Title: Adpositions
Subtitle: Pragmatic, semantic and syntactic perspectives
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TSL%2074
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 74
Description:

This book is a collection of articles which deal with adpositions in a
variety of languages and from a number of perspectives. Not only
does the book cover what is traditionally treated in studies from a
European and Semitic orientation prepositions, but it presents
studies on postpositions, too. The main languages dealt with in the
collection are English, French and Hebrew, but there are articles
devoted to other languages including Korean, Turkic languages,
Armenian, Russian and Ukrainian. Adpositions are treated by some
authors from a semantic perspective, by others as syntactic units, and
a third group of authors distinguishes adpositions from the point of
view of their pragmatic function. This work is of interest to students
and researchers in theoretical and applied linguistics, as well as to
those who have a special interest in any of the languages treated.
