Title: Exploring the Lexis-Grammar Interface
Edited By: Ute Römer
Rainer Schulze
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SCL%2035
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 35

This volume showcases studies that recognize and provide evidence for the
inseparability of lexis and grammar. The contributors explore in what ways
these two areas, often treated separately in linguistic theory and
description, form an organic whole. The papers in Section I (Setting the

theoretical positions at the lexis-grammar interface, while Section II
(Considering the Particulars) contains papers that report on case studies
and show concrete applications of the central methods and theories.
Exploring the Lexis-Grammar Interface is a stimulating
collection of papers for anyone who wishes to learn more about and get
fresh state-of-the-art perspectives on language patterning.
