Title: Clause Linking and Clause Hierarchy
Subtitle: Syntax and pragmatics
Edited By: Isabelle Bril
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20121
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 121
Description:

This collective volume explores clause-linkage strategies in a cross-linguistic
perspective with greater emphasis on subordination. Part I presents some
theoretical reassessment of syntactic terminologies and distinctive criteria for
subordination, as well as typological methods based on sets of variables and
statistics allowing cross-linguistic comparability. Part II deals with strategies
relating to clause-chaining, conjunctive conjugations, converbial
constructions, masdars. Part III centers on the interaction between the
syntax, pragmatics, and semantics of clause-linking and subordination, in
relation to informa­tional structure, to referential hierarchy, and
correlative constructions. Part IV presents insights in the clause-linking and
subordinating functions of some T.A.M. markers, verbal inflectional
morphology and conjugation systems, which may also interact with
informa­tional hierarchy, via the backgrounding effects and lack of
illocutionary force of some aspect and mood forms. The volume is of
particular interest to linguists and typologists working on clause-linkage
systems and on the interface between syntax, pragmatics, and semantics.
