Do morphophonological alternations have a that means? those questions are explored through a accomplished 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 concerning contributors – the so-called individual-level (IL) predicates – not like these often called stage-level (SL) predicates. the various conventional tenets attributed to the IL/SL dichotomy aren't solidly based, this e-book claims, because it examines present theoretical concerns about the syntax/semantics inter­face similar to the relation among semantic prop­erties of predicates and their syntactic constitution.

Essentials of Cognitive Grammar

Ronald W. Langacker created an method of linguistics known as Cognitive Grammar, that is primarily a procedure of symbols that may be used to arrange and examine how semantics and phonology engage with one another in human language. Cognitive Grammar lays the foundation for cognitive linguistics, which has develop into an enormous sub-field during the last 30 years.

Many students get into difficulties when they are writing about events that have happened in the past, but still have implications for the present. Barbara’s dilemma, presented below, may be familiar to anyone who has had to write about the ideas of the ancient Greeks (and other long-dead authors). 1 Barbara’s dilemma: here and now – or there and then? Abel has arrived first at the café as Barbara has stopped to pick up her essay.

Falsification may not be necessary for scientific progress because alternative explanations of the world have arisen without it. It may still be useful, though, to consider both Popper’s encouragement to demonstrate that our principles are not false and Kuhn’s concerns about the difficulties of seeing beyond our current paradigm. 2 Silver (1998) uses the metaphor of a raft to illustrate the difference between the views of Popper and Kuhn. The raft is the scientific framework, or paradigm. For Popper, the raft becomes uninhabitable – or the scientific framework has been falsified – and scientists have to jump into the sea.

It’s giving me a different way of seeing the world. The way some of the stuff is written is very different from the strictly science books. I quite like it, but there are a lot more words rather than equations and stuff. Kim: I couldn’t be bothered with that – I like illustrations and equations. Page 16 Page 17 COMMENTS ON QUESTIONS 17 Give me science and engineering any time. That’s why I don’t like writing – I’d rather do some calculations or draw something. Barbara: But don’t engineers still have to write big reports?
