Grammatical Analyses in Basque and Romance Linguistics.

This volume contains fifteen articles on current theoretical issues in
Basque and Romance linguistics. Even though Basque and Romance
languages are typologically different and have different genetic
origins, one thousand years of coexistence have shown certain
parallelisms in their respective grammars. It is Mario Saltarelli that
first offered a formal linguistic account of phonological and
syntactic phenomena that occur in these two language groups. Thus,
this compilation of articles in both Basque and Romance linguistics
not only pays tribute to Saltarelli's work by acknowledging his
formalization of this relational insight, but also comprises state of
the art research on languages with strong geographical and historical
kinship.

Fifteen reviewed articles written by sixteen top scholars in the field
provide fresh analyses of long standing challenging phenomena in
Romance and Basque linguistics such as geminates, the evolution of
Basque plosives, clitic doubling, clitic clustering, directionality of
clitization, the role of agreement, focus, the interaction of voice
and aspect, unaccusativity, semantic interpretation and syntactic
structure of Determiner Phrases, obviation, control, and anaphoric and
pronominal binding. This variety of topics however is unified by
limiting the contributions to the four major formal areas of
linguistics, and to one single framework, Generative Grammar, although
in some of its many incarnations such as Minimalism, Optimality
Theory, and Relational Grammar. All this, along with the number of
languages covered by the authors (Aragonese, Basque, Catalan, French,
Galician, Gascon, Italian and many of its dialects (Ligurian,
Piedmontese, Tuscan...), Classical and Late Latin, Occitan, Brazilian
and European Portuguese, Romanian, Old and Modern Spanish among
others), makes the book of great value to any linguist working in
Romance or Basque linguistics.

Message 2: K. Panther & G. Radden, Metonymy in Language and Thought

Date: Sat, 30 Oct 1999 11:20:33 -0400
From: Paul Peranteau <paulbenjamins.com>
Subject: K. Panther & G. Radden, Metonymy in Language and Thought

John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce this newly available work:


Metonymy in Language and Thought.
Klause-Uwe PANTHER and G�nter RADDEN (University of Hamburg) (eds.)
Human Cognitive Processing 4
US & Canada: 1 55619 204 5 / USD 95.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 2356 4 / NLG 190.00 (Hardcover)

Metonymy in Language and Thought gives a state-of-the-art account of
metonymic research. The contributions have different disciplinary and
theoretical backgrounds in linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology
and literary studies. However, they share the assumption that metonymy
is a cognitive phenomenon, a "figure of thought," underlying much of
our ordinary conceptualization that may be even more fundamental than
metaphor. The use of metonymy in language is a reflection of this
conceptual status. The framework within which metonymy is understood
in this volume is that of scenes, frames, scenarios, domains or
idealized cognitive models.

The chapters are revised papers given at the Metonymy Workshop held in
Hamburg, 1996.
