Description:

English as a Human Language
To honour Louis Goossens

Johan van der Auwera, Frank Durieux & Ludo Lejeune (eds.)

The scholarship of Louis Goossens took him from Old to Present-Day English and to human language as such, from auxiliaries and grammaticalisation to metaphor and metonymy, and from philology to Functional and Cognitive Grammar.

32 papers have been written by colleagues and reflect the later stages of Goossens' career. The papers focus on modality (with contributions by E. Blom, F. Wijnen & S. Gillis, X. Dekeyser, P. Harder, J. Nuyts, K. Pelsmaekers & C. Braecke, L. Tasmowski & P. Dendale), lexical semantics (M. Aguirre, W. De Mulder & P. Dendale, D. Geeraerts, D. Sandra, G.A.J. Tops), metaphor (F. Boers, H. Cuyckens & M. Verspoor, L. Lejeune), spelling (F. Daems, G. De Schutter), grammatical categories (R. Dirven & G. Radden, G. Durieux & S. Gillis), pragmatics (R. Geluykens. K. Van de Poel), Functional, Cognitive and Systemic Grammar (with, among others, M. Hannay, J.L. Mackenzie, D. Noël, A.-M. Simon-Vandenbergen), contact linguistics (J. Blommaert, M. Meeuwis & J.-R. Yoka-Mpela), grammatical models (W. Daelemans, K. Davidse), the teaching of language and linguistics (K. Janicki, T. De Rycker, A. De Schryver), and localism (F. Brisard).
