Title: English Adjective Comparison
Subtitle: A historical perspective
Written By: Victorina González-Díaz
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20299
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 299
Description:

The present work contributes to a better understanding of the English
system of degree by means of a study of a number of aspects in the
evolution of adjective comparison that have so far either been considered
controversial or not been accounted for at all. As will be shown, the
diachronic aspects analysed will also have synchronic implications.
Furthermore, unlike previous synchronic as well as diachronic accounts of
adjective comparison, this monograph does not concentrate on the 'standard'
comparative strategies (i.e. inflectional and periphrastic forms) only, but
also deals with double periphrastic comparatives, thus providing an
analysis of the whole range of comparative structures in English.
