It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Applicatives
Subtitle: Structure and interpretation from a minimalist perspective
Written By: Youngmi Jeong
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 104

Applicatives is concerned with the syntax of constructions that contain
arguments that transcend the traditional subject-object characterization,
and how the syntax of such constructions yields the interpretive effects
that previous research has identified. At the empirical level this volume
remedies the inadequacies and limitations of previous accounts by proposing
a more nuanced view of all the factors that enter into the syntax and
semantics of applicatives. At the theoretical level, this book offers
empirical arguments for various theoretical options currently entertained
in the minimalist program, among which movement into theta-position,
multiple agree, anti-locality, and a very derivational view on successive
cyclic movement.
