By Frederick W.P. Jago

Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English,, this glossary was published in 1882 by Frederick W. P. Jago (1817–92) in an effort to describe and preserve the dialect as it too declined and it is an invaluable record of a disappearing dialect and way of life.

Book Information


Title: Fusion symétrique et alternances ditransitives
Written By: Egor Tsedryk
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 71

Cet ouvrage propose une analyse unifiée de différentes propriétés
structurales opposant les constructions ditransitives comme He offered a
woman the flowers et He offered the flowers to a woman (alternance dative)
ou He loaded a truck with the wood et He loaded the wood onto a truck
(alternance locative). En mettant en parallèle l'anglais et le russe à
l'égard de la portée relative des quantificateurs et de la modification
dépictive, l'étude s'étend à trois autres oppositions observées dans le cas
de l'alternance locative en russe par rapport à la préfixation lexicale,
les applicatifs hauts et bas et l'impersonnalisation. Selon l'hypothèse
proposée, toutes les propriétés distinctives se réduisent à une seule
opposition, celle entre Fusion (Merge) symétrique et asymétrique. En
intégrant ces deux types de Fusion aux postulats de la syntaxe minimaliste,
l'analyse proposée illustre comment plusieurs propriétés de surface,
paraissant de prime abord disparates, peuvent être dérivées à partir d'une
seule opération de base.

Contenu :

Construction ditransitive - Alternance dative et locative - Portée relative
des quantificateurs - Modification dépictive - Préfixation lexicale -
Impersonnalisation - Structure applicative - Datifs haut et bas - Fusion
(Merge) symétrique et asymétrique.
