In grade school, no one would have ever guessed I'd grow up to become a linguist-- I was the kid who got Cs in French and couldn't produce a trill to save my life! I went to university majoring in civil engineering-- relieved that there was no language requirement for that major. But I ended up switching to geophysics, thinking that it would be less restrictive than engineering, and that it would allow me to spend more time in the mountains (which turned out to be wishful thinking)...Read more
The Cambridge Handbook of Communication Disorders examines the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders and provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the epidemiology, aetiology and clinical features of these disorders.
This book addresses three fundamental questions in the study of negation:
What are the main ways of expressing sentential negation? What are the
distributional properties of lexically-encoded negative elements? And, what
implications do the answers to these two questions have for the theory of
grammar? In answering these questions, Jong-Bok Kim investigates various
aspects of negation in Korean, English, French and Italian. Addressing both
empirical and theoretical issues relating to negation in these languages,
he develops a nonderivational, lexicalist analysis within the
constraint-based framework of Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar. This
work demonstrates that a constraint-based approach can capture the
distributional possibilities of negative elements and explain related
phenomena simply through their lexical properties and the interaction of
the elementary morphosyntactic and valence properties of syntactic heads.
The resulting constraint-based theory allows a conservative division of
labor between morphology and syntax.
