Deixis and alignment : inverse systems in indigenous languages of the Americas by Fernando Zúñiga( )

16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book proposes a notion of inverse that differs from two widespread positions found in descriptive and typological studies (one of them restrictive and structure-oriented, the other broad and function-centered). This third stance put forward here takes both grammar and pragmatic functions into account, but it also relates the opposition between direct and inverse verbs and clauses to an opposition between deictic values, thereby achieving two advantageous goals: it meaningfully circumvents one of the usual analytic dilemmas, namely whether a given construction is passive or inverse, and it
Benefactives and malefactives : typological perspectives and case studies( )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benefactives are constructions used to express that a state of affairs holds to someone's advantage. The same construction sometimes also serves as a malefactive, whose meanings are generally not a simple mirror image of the benefactive. Benefactive constructions cover a wide range of phenomena: malefactive passives, general and specialized benefactive cases and adpositions, serial verb constructions and converbal constructions (including e.g. verbs of giving and taking), benefactive applicatives, and other morphosyntactic strategies. The present book is the first collection of its kind to be
Word formation in South American languages by Swintha Danielsen( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Amerindian languages and in many other agglutinative languages, subordination is often a matter of nominalization. In Cholón, a language spoken in North-Peru, this is certainly the case: nominalized forms coincide with subordinate clauses. In this language, a nominalized verb form can also be used as a main predicate. In this paper we study the different subordinate clauses that are formed with nominalizations. We then find out which nominalizations are part of a main predicate, and when this is the case. Keywords: Cholón; subordination; nominalized main predicates; syntactical nominalizati
Advances in research on semantic roles by Fernando Zúñiga( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Especially in functional-typological linguistics, semantic roles have been studied thoroughly, because they constitute a good starting point for any study on argument marking due to their semantically defined nature. However, the very concept of semantic roles is far from being without problems, and there is still no consensus on how the roles are best defined. In this volume, the notion will be discussed from novel perspectives with the aim of providing new insights into our understanding of semantic roles. Two of the papers deal with semantic role clusters, one with semantic roles in verbless constructions, one with diachrony of semantic roles and two with individual semantic roles that have not been studied in too much detail in previous studies. The book may not offer answers to all questions the readers may have, but at least it raises interesting further questions relevant to arriving at a better understanding of semantic roles

Typological hierarchies in synchrony and diachrony( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Typological hierarchies are widely perceived as one of the most important results of research on language universals and linguistic diversity. Explanations for typological hierarchies, however, are usually based on the synchronic properties of the patterns described by individual hierarchies, not the actual diachronic processes that give rise to these patterns cross-linguistically. This book aims to explore in what ways the investigation of such processes can further our understanding of typological hierarchies. To this end, diachronic evidence about the origins of several phenomena described by typological hierarchies is discussed for several languages by a number of leading scholars in typology, historical linguistics, and language documentation. This evidence suggests a rethinking of possible explanations for typological hierarchies, as well as the very notion of typological universals in general

Grammatical voice by Fernando Zúñiga( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The grammatical category of voice covers a wide range of phenomena, including causatives, applicatives, passives, antipassives, middles, and others. Drawing on data from over 200 languages, Fernando Zúñiga and Seppo Kittilä illustrate the semantic, morphological, and syntactic variation of voice across languages from a range of families and regions. They approach the topic from a broad and explicit perspective, and discuss a variety of topics that are not always regarded as voice, in order to make a clear and useful conceptual delimitation. Clearly organized and accessibly written, the book will be welcomed by students and scholars of linguistics, especially those interested in how grammatical categories work"--
