Book Information


Title: The Semantics of Nominalizations across Languages and Frameworks
Edited By: Monika Rathert
Artemis Alexiadou
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE]

The volume explores the semantics of nominalizations from different
theoretical points of view: formal and lexical semantics,
cognitive-functional grammar, lexical-functional grammar, discourse
representation theory. Data from a variety of languages are taken into
account, including Hungarian, Italian, French, German and English. The
papers discuss the semantics of distinct readings of nominalizations and
meaning differences observed between competing affixes.
