Title: Adjectives
Subtitle: Formal analyses in syntax and semantics
Edited By: Patricia Cabredo Hofherr

URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20153
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 153
Description:

Adjectives are comparatively less well studied than the lexical categories
of nouns and verbs. The present volume brings together studies in the
syntax and semantics of adjectives. Four of the contributions investigate
the syntax of adjectives in a variety of languages (English, French,
Mandarin Chinese, Modern Hebrew, Russian, Spanish, and Serbocroatian). The
theoretical issues explored include: the syntax of attributive and
predicative adjectives, the syntax of nominalized adjectives and the
identification of adjectives as a distinct lexical category in Mandarin
Chinese. A further four contributions examine different aspects in the
semantics of adjectives in English, French, and Spanish, dealing with
superlatives, comparatives, and aspect in adjectives. This volume will be
of interest to researchers and students in syntax, formal semantics, and
language typology.
