Grammatical roles and relations by F. R Palmer( Book )

23 editions published between 1944 and 1998 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Palmer's new book is a typological survey of grammatical roles, such as Agent, Patient, Beneficiary, and grammatical relations, such as Subject, Direct Object and Indirect Object, which are familiar concepts in traditional grammars. It describes the devices, such as the Passive, that alter or switch the identities between such roles and relations. A great wealth of examples is used to show that the grammatical systems of the familiar European languages are far from typical of many of the world's languages, for which we need to use such terms as 'Ergative' and 'Antipassive'. Professor Palmer provides an elegant and consistent framework within which grammatical roles and relations may be discussed, combining a great clarity of discussion with evidence from an enormous number of the world's languages

Modality in contemporary English( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text offers original theoretical accounts and a wealth of descriptive information concerning modality in contemporary English. At the same time, it provides fresh impetus to more general linguistic issues such as grammaticalization, colloquialization, or the interplay between sociolinguistic and syntactic constraints. The articles fall into four sections: the semantics and pragmatics of core modal verbs; the status of emerging modal items; sylistic variation and change; and sociolinguistic variation and syntactic models. The book should be of value to students and teachers of English and linguistics at undergraduate and graduate level

Mood and modality by Frank Robert Palmer( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modality is concerned with mood (subjunctive) and with modal markers such as English modal verbs (can, may, must) and is treated as a single grammatical category found in most of the languages of the world. In his investigation of this category, the author draws on a wealth of examples from a wide variety of languages. He discusses in detail familiar characteristics in a number of mainly European languages, and also looks at less familiar features including evidential systems and the contrast of realis/irrealis, both to be found in unrelated languages
