Title: Language at Large
Subtitle: Essays on Syntax and Semantics
Written By: Chia-jung Pan
R. M. W. Dixon
URL: http://www.brill.nl/language-large
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Linguistic Theory
Description:

The volume brings together important essays on syntax and semantics by
Aikhenvald and Dixon, highlighting their expertise in various fields of linguistics.
The first part focusses on linguistic typology, covering case markers used on
verbs, argument-determined constructions, unusual meanings of causatives, the
semantic basis for a typology, word-class-changing derivations, speech reports
and semi-direct speech. The second part concentrates on documentation and
analysis of previously undescribed languages, from South America and
Indigenous Australia. The third part addresses a variety of issues in grammar
and lexicography of English. This includes pronouns with transferred reference,
comparative constructions, features of the noun phrase, and the discussion of
'twice'. The treatment of Australian Aboriginal words in dictionaries is discussed
in the final chapter.
