Studies in syntactic typology by Michael Hammond( )

18 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 1,717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this volume are revised versions of presentations at the conference on Language Universals and Language Typology in March 1985 at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. They include new proposals of universals, results of investigations to validate or refine previously proposed universal generalizations, and discussions concerning the explanation of universals. The volume will be of great interest to researchers in syntax and in language universals. In addition, scholars in pragmatics, philosophy of linguistics, psycholinguistics, anthropological linguistics and semantics will a
Universals of human language( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 46 papers in this 4-volume collection pro-vide clear and certain evidence that the search for "implicational universals" of human language (that is, for valid empirical generalizations such as "if property Y exists in a language, then property X must exist as well") has established itself, once and for all, as a powerful and dynamic force in modern linguistics. Concomitantly, the collection attests to a broadened use among scholars engaged in universals re-search of a theoretical and methodological strategy-pioneered, elaborated, and most extensively applied by Joseph Greenberg- that contrasts in fundamental respects with procedures favored by generative grammarians. Finally, and most impressive of all, the papers present abundant "results," a profusion of concrete findings that should persuade even the most hardened skeptics that implicational principles have a great deal to tell about what human language is and how it got to be that way. -- from http://www.jstor.org (May 21, 2014)
Competing motivations in grammar and usage by Brian MacWhinney( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the conflicting factors that shape the content and form of grammatical rules in language, which speakers and addressees need to contend with when expressing themselves and when trying to comprehend messages. Chapters examine adult language, first and second language acquisition, and the motivations behind historical change
Markedness by Fred R Eckman( Book )

12 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the proceedIngs of the Twelfth Annual LInƯ guistics Symposium of the UniversIty of WisconsIn-Milwaukee held March 11-12, 1983 on the campus of UWM. It includes all papers that were given at the conference with the exception of Genevieve Escure and Glenn Gilbert's joint paper "Syntactic marking/unmarking phenomena in the creole continuum of Belize" which was not submitted for publication by the authors. Many of the papers appear in this volume in a revised form that is somewhat different from the oral version. We would like to thank the various departments and other units at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee that sponsored the mark- ness symposium. These are: the Department of Linguistics, the English as a Second Language Intensive Program, the College of LetƯ ters and Science, the Division of Urban Outreach, the Center for Latin America and the Spanish Speaking Outreach Institute. Finally, we wish to thank Lisa Carrara for doing a careful joh on the preparation of the index, and J.L. Russell, for his patience and perseverance in typing a difficult manuscript

Introducing language typology by Edith A Moravcsik( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Language typology identifies similarities and differences between languages of the world. This textbook provides an introduction to the subject which assumes minimal prior knowledge of linguistics. It offers the broadest coverage of any introductory book, with sections on historical change, language acquisition and language processing. Students will become familiar with the subject by working through numerous examples of cross-linguistic generalizations and diversity in syntax, morphology and phonology as well as vocabulary, writing systems and signed languages. Chapter previews and summaries, key words, a glossary and copious literature references help the reader understand and internalize what they have read, while activities at the end of each chapter reinforce key points"--
An introduction to syntactic theory by Edith A Moravcsik( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook provides a comprehensive, balanced introduction to syntactic theory. Â The author shows how the diversity of syntactic theories, which at first seems confusing, can be approached by examining how each deals with conflicting data. This approach helps the student to understand how syntactic theories are related to each other, what they necessarily have in common, and in what ways they actually differ. Theories introduced here include Transformational Generative Grammar, Relational Grammar, Word Grammar, Functional Grammar, and Optimality Theory, amongst others. An Introduction to
An introduction to syntax : fundamentals of syntactic analysis by Edith A Moravcsik( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive introduction presents the basic goals and tools of syntactic analysis. The conceptual framework is theory-neutral, presenting a scientific introduction to the field. The book includes student-friendly features, such as chapter summaries, suggestions for further reading, exercises, and a glossary of terms. This is essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students, whether they are encountering syntax for the first time, or studying it at a more advanced level. Book jacket."--Jacket

Current approaches to syntax : a comparative handbook( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even though the range of phenomena syntactic theories intend to account for is basically the same, the large number of current approaches to syntax shows how differently these phenomena can be interpreted, described, and explained. The goal of the volume is to probe into the question of how exactly these frameworks differ and what if anything they have in common.Descriptions of a sample of current approaches to syntax are presented by their major practitioners (Part I) followed by their metatheoretical underpinnings (Part II). Given that the goal is to facilitate a systematic comparison among the approaches, a checklist of issues was given to the contributors to address. The main headings are Data, Goals, Descriptive Tools, and Criteria for Evaluation. The chapters are structured uniformly allowing an item-by-item survey across the frameworks. The introduction lays out the parameters along which syntactic frameworks must be the same and how they may differ and a final paper draws some conclusions about similarities and differences.The volume is of interest to descriptive linguists, theoreticians of grammar, philosophers of science, and studies of the cognitive science of science

Formulaic language by Roberta Corrigan( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the second of the two-volume collection of papers on formulaic language. The collection is among the first in the field. The authors of the papers in this volume represent a diverse group of international scholars in linguistics and psychology. The language data analyzed come from a variety of languages, including Arabic, Japanese, Polish, and Spanish, and include analyses of styles and genres within these languages. While the first volume focuses on the very definition of linguistic formulae and on their grammatical, semantic, stylistic, and historical aspects, the second volume
