Title: Sentence Patterns in English and Hebrew
Written By: Ron Kuzar
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/cal.12
Series Title: Constructional Approaches to Language 12
Description:

'Sentence Patterns in English and Hebrew' offers an innovative perspective on sentential syntax, in which sentence patterns are introduced as constructions within the general framework of Construction Grammar. Drawing on naturally occurring data collected from the Internet, the study challenges the prevailing view of 'predication' as the sole mechanism of sentence formation, and introduces the idea of 'patterning' as a complementary, sometimes even alternative mechanism. Major sentence patterns of English and Hebrew are systematically presented, targeting both their form and their function. A contrastive analysis of the sentence patterns in these two languages results in postulating a typological group, in which cognitive motivations are shown to account for both similarities and differences within the typology. 'Sentence Patterns in English and Hebrew' will appeal to scholars of constructional approaches, cognitive linguistics, typology, syntax, as well as anyone interested in English and Hebrew.
