On the meaning of prepositions and cases : the expression of semantic roles in ancient Greek by Silvia Luraghi( )

18 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepositions and cases constitute a fruitful field of research for semantics. The historical development of their meaning can shed light on the relations among the semantic roles of participants and on the organization of conceptual space. Ancient Greek allows an in-depth study of such development. The book, based on a wide, diachronically ordered corpus, aims at providing a usage-based analysis of possible patterns of semantic extension, including the mapping of abstract domains onto the concrete domain of space. An analysis of the Greek data further highlights the interplay between specific
Key terms in syntax and syntactic theory by Silvia Luraghi( )

18 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Key Terms in Syntax and Syntactic Theory explains all of the relevant terms which students of linguistics and English language are likely to encounter during their undergraduate study. The book includes definitions of key terms within syntax and syntactic theory, as well as outlines of the work of key thinkers in the field, including Noam Chomsky, M.A.K Halliday, Lucien Tesnire and Robert van Valin. The list of key readings is intended to direct students towards classic articles, as well providing a springboard to further study. Accessibly written, with complicated terms and concepts explained in an easy to understand way, Key Terms in Syntax and Syntactic Theory is an essential resource for students of linguistics

Perspectives on semantic roles by Silvia Luraghi( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper targets the phenomenon of non valence-governed datives of affectedness linked to possession. By adopting a constructional approach based on Goldberg (1995) and a revision of Raineri and Evola (2008), I work out a grid that may be adopted for cross-linguistic purposes. By applying this model to German, French and Italian, I show that the latter language, contrary to the two former ones has thoroughly grammaticalized this function. I also propose a tentative account of the grammaticalization paths that may have led to the heterogeneous behavior of the languages under discussion with r
Space in diachrony by Silvia Luraghi( )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Space is a fundamental dimension of human life and is pervasive in human experience. Research on space has highlighted the possible asymmetrical nature of spatial relations. Differences in the encoding of goals and sources of motion are a case in point, and cross-linguistic coding tendencies show that path is less frequently flagged by a dedicated case than goal, source/origin, and (static) location (locative). Interestingly, such asymmetries may correlate with certain types of landmark, as in the case of toponyms or of animate entities. Even though these issues have been focused upon both in typological and psycholinguistic research, they remain largely open. The papers in this collection aim to show that a diachronic approach may shed light on the way in which asymmetries in the space domain come about over time, thus contributing to the clarification of synchronically puzzling facts
Partitive cases and related categories by Silvia Luraghi( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Argument-marking, morphological partitives have been the topic of language specific studies, while no cross-linguistic or typological analyses have been conducted. Since individual partitives of different languages have been studied, there exists a basis for a more cross-linguistic approach. The purpose of this book is to fill the gap and to bring together research on partitives in different languages

Diachronic treebanks for historical linguistics by Hanne Martine Eckhoff( )

7 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last few decades, the widespread diffusion of digital technology has increased availability of primary textual sources, radically changing the everyday life of scholars in the humanities, who are now able to access, query and process a wealth of empirical evidence in ways not possible before. Also for ancient languages, corpora enhanced with increasingly complex layers of metalinguistic information, such as part-of-speech tagging and syntactic annotation (called 'treebanks') are now available. In particular, diachronic treebanks, which provide data for a language across several historical stages of a given language, allow for a new approach to diachronic studies of syntactic phenomena where scholars previously had to content themselves with empirical work on a much smaller scale. This volume brings together a set of papers that report research on various diachronic matters supported by evidence from diachronic treebanks. The contents of the papers cover a wide range of languages, including English, French, Russian, Old Church Slavonic, Latin and Ancient Greek. Originally published as special issue of Diachronica 35:3 (2018)"--
Experiential verbs in Homeric Greek : a constructional approach by Silvia Luraghi( )

10 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Experiential verbs in Homeric Greek. A constructional approach Silvia Luraghi offers a comprehensive account of construction variation with two-place verbs belonging to different sub-domains of experience (including bodily sensation, perception, cognition, emotion and volitionality) in the Homeric language. Traditionally, variation is ascribed to the independent meaning of cases that mark the second argument, and explanations have focused on properties of the latter. By taking a constructional approach, the author shows that construction variation also brings about differences in the conceptualization of the subject/experiencer by pointing to different degrees of control and awareness. Variation is then shown to reflect the embodied construal of experience along with the social dimension of emotions"--

Esercizi di semantica, pragmatica e linguistica testuale by Silvia Luraghi( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in Italian and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La prassi degli esercizi nei corsi universitari di linguistica si è diffusa in tutte le università italiane e ha dimostrato una certa efficacia didattica. Più spesso, i livelli sui quali vertono gli esercizi sono quelli "di base": fonetica e fonologia, morfologia, sintassi, a volte semantica. L'insegnamento della linguistica è però largamente obbligatorio anche nei corsi di scienze della comunicazione, che hanno registrato in questi anni una grande espansione. In questi corsi hanno acquisito ampio spazio nell'insegnamento aree meno formalizzate della linguistica, ma di grande attualità in quanto più attente ai processi comunicativi. Il testo, che presenta una serie di esercizi su semantica, pragmatica e linguistica testuale, intende fornire un ulteriore strumento di appoggio a una moderna didattica della linguistica
