Title: Investigations of the Syntax-Semantics-Pragmatics Interface
Edited By: RobertDVan Valin
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20105
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 105
Description:

Investigations of the Syntax-Semantics-Pragmatics Interface presents
on-going research in Role and Reference Grammar in a number of critical
areas of linguistic theory: verb semantics and argument structure, the
nature of syntactic categories and syntactic representation, prosody and
syntax, information structure and syntax, and the syntax and semantics of
complex sentences. In each of these areas there are important results which
not only advance the development of the theory, but also contribute to the
broader theoretical discussion. In particular, there are analyses of
grammatical phenomena such as transitivity in Kabardian, the verb-less
numeral quantifier construction in Japanese, and an unusual kind of complex
sentence in Wari' (Chapakuran, Brazil) which not only illustrate the
descriptive and explanatory power of the theory, but also present
interesting challenges to other approaches. In addition, there are papers
looking at the implications and applications of Role and Reference Grammar
for neurolinguistic research, parsing and automated text analysis.
