Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: La Subordinata Come 'Oggetto Complesso'
Subtitle: La causativa nelle lingue scandinave (attraverso la pseudorelativa)
Written By: Giorgia Di Lorenzo
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Language Typology 27
Description:

La costruzione causativa costituisce un tema di ricerca ampiamente discusso in letteratura, che ha interessato linguisti appartenenti a diversi approcci teorici e prospettive di analisi. Questo volume si propone come contributo allo studio della costruzione causativa, fornendo un’indagine comparativa centrata su quattro lingue scandinave (lo svedese, il norvegese, il danese e l’islandese) e fondata sull’elaborazione di dati interpretativi originali ottenuti con informanti madrelingua. Si tratta di un’analisi principalmente di tipo sintattico (ma anche semantico) per cui si è giunti a individuare una spiegazione strutturale originale, alla luce dello studio di un’ulteriore costruzione, la pseudorelativa. A seguito, dunque, di una nuova proposta di analisi suggerita per la pseudorelativa, si avanza l’ipotesi strutturale della causativa scandinava in grado di rendere conto delle proprietà morfosintattiche e interpretative riscontrate per tale costrutto sintattico. In particolare, riconosciamo in queste strutture la presenza di una subordinata specifica che costituisce un oggetto complesso, definito in termini di “monofrasalità complessa” e descritto in dal punto di vista strutturale, nonché di contesto, pragmatica, semantica, intonazione e proprietà morfosintattiche.
