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: Formal Properties of Measurement Constructions
Written By: Kimiko Nakanishi
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE] 12

This book investigates the semantics and syntax-semantics interface of
measurement constructions, such as (non-)split quantifiers and
comparatives. The cross-linguistic investigation reveals that seemingly
diverse constructions can be categorized into two classes depending on
whether they measure nominal or verbal predicates, and shows that the
classification accounts for why certain constructions have certain
characteristics concerning distributivity and single-event predicates.
Throughout the book, particular emphasis is placed on issues of

Syntax; semantics; generative syntax; generative semantics
