Abstract Phonology in a Concrete Model: Cognitive Linguistics and the Morphology-Phonology Interface

This e-book is correct for phonologists, morphologists, Slavists and cognitive linguists, and addresses questions: How can the morphology-phonology interface be accommodated in cognitive linguistics? Do morphophonological alternations have a that means? those questions are explored through a complete research of stem alternations in Russian verbs.

Individuals in Time: Tense, aspect and the individual stage distinction (Linguistik Aktuell Linguistics Today)

This monograph investigates the temporal houses of these predicates touching on participants – the so-called individual-level (IL) predicates – not like these often called stage-level (SL) predicates. some of the conventional tenets attributed to the IL/SL dichotomy aren't solidly based, this e-book claims, because it examines present theoretical matters in regards to the syntax/semantics inter­face reminiscent of the relation among semantic prop­erties of predicates and their syntactic constitution.

Essentials of Cognitive Grammar

Ronald W. Langacker created an method of linguistics referred to as Cognitive Grammar, that's basically a approach of symbols that may be used to prepare and examine how semantics and phonology have interaction with one another in human language. Cognitive Grammar lays the basis for cognitive linguistics, which has turn into an incredible sub-field over the last 30 years.

Non-Canonical Passives

This quantity incorporates a number of papers facing buildings that experience a passive-like interpretation yet don't appear to proportion the entire houses with canonical passives. The fifteen chapters of this quantity elevate very important questions about the right characterization of the common houses of passivization and mirror the present dialogue during this quarter, overlaying syntactic, semantic, psycho-linguistic and typological points of the phenomenon, from varied theoretical views and in numerous language households and subsidized up more often than not by way of large corpora and experimental reviews.

E. pidginized pidgin) . 2 In addition, because of the ever more limited access to the superstrate, each new slave would increasingly be modelling their speech on the imper­ fect second language output of the slaves who arrived earlier. Thus, on at least the plantations with similar situations as Mauritius, pidginization was a cumulative and on-going process with each wave of immigrants repidginizing the previous slaves' attempts at second language learning (at whatever level they reached). Furthermore, the faster the new slaves arrived, the faster the level of access to the superstrate diminished, thereby creating ever more deficient pidgin.

Depth or "pureness") 1 of the Creoles studied. The motivation for each event is as follows. Prior to Event One, the number of Europeans exceeded the total number of slave imports. Because of this, there would be adequate contact with the ruling class for the slaves to learn a reasonable facsimile of the European language if they had enough time before the onset of Event One. That is, if the numerical status quo remained at pre-Event One levels for, let us say, 50 years (as was the case on Reunion), then the resultant code would resemble the speech of the ruling class (as was again the case on Reunion) and extensively superstrate-elaborated pidgin (or possibly no pidgin at all) would ensue.

Keep in mind that 70% of all early imports were adult and male (until 1735), creating an unequal balance between the sexes. This unequal balance further exasperated the male-female ratio in the bush com- Suriname, the Saramaka and Saramaccan 33 munities because many more men escaped than women (Curtin (1969)), As a result, the male members of the early Saramaka clans were forced to either take Indian wives or raid the plantations for what African slave women they could get (de Groot, pp. 9,16).
