From now to eternity by Jesse Mortelmans( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and French and held by 1,460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 7th Chronos colloquium in Antwerp (2006). They specifically focus on issues dealing with the categories of Aktionsart, aspect and tense, and the possible relations between these categories, mainly in Germanic and Romance languages. Some of the papers in this collection put the relation between tense and modal meaning into focus, which was in fact the Antwerp conference's special topic. More in particular, the papers in this volume deal with: non-state imperfectives in Romance and West-Germanic, aspectual properties of French l

7 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 1,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a selection of papers presented at the 7th Chronos colloquium in Antwerp (2006), which deal with the expression of modality (in a wide sense), by modal and semi-modal verbs (in Germanic and Romance languages), on the one hand, and by other markers (in languages like Turkish, Tibetan and Japanese), on the other. The Antwerp edition's special conference topic was the interaction between tense and modality, of which some of the papers collected in this volume also testify. The volume covers a wide range of languages and topics. Specific topics include: the distinction between root
Grammaticalization and language change : new reflections by Kristin Davidse( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focuses on "the many careers of negative polarity items", taking a diachronic perspective on NPIs in general and on scalar NPIs in particular. Its main thesis is that scalar NPIs are prototypical NPIs. The downward entailing contexts of NPIs can be explained and made cognitively accessible by the pragmatic mechanisms associated with scalar NPIs, viz. the capacity to evoke alternatives (ALT) and the scalar interpretation of these alternatives (SCALE). NPIs with standard contexts of distribution are, or are otherwise tied to, scalar expressions, while NPIs with an idiosyncratic range
Funktionale Grammatik : Konzepte und Theorien by Elena Smirnova( )

9 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over recent decades, linguistic theory has gone through many decisive innovations and developments. A particular role in all these developments has been played by what are known as functional descriptions of language. This textbook presents a concise account of the most important theories in functional grammar from the last 40 years - functional grammar, systemic functional grammar, cognitive grammar, construction grammar, and grammaticalisation theory
Grammatikalisierung im Deutschen by Tanja Mortelmans( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in German and English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions in this volume examine a representative spectrum of phenomena in the grammaticalization of the German language. At the center of the study is the question concerning the legitimacy of the often hypothetically postulated unidirectionality of grammaticalization cycles. The volume documents the trends in current linguistic research discussions, in which typological, diachronic, and synchronic questions come together
Aspects of linguistic variation( )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Linguistic variation is a topic of ongoing interest to the field. Its description and its explanations continue to intrigue scholars from many different backgrounds. By taking a deliberately broad perspective on the matter, covering not only crosslinguistic and diachronic but also intralinguistic and interspeaker variation and examining phenomena ranging from negation over connectives to definite articles in well- and lesser-known languages, the volume furthers our understanding of variation in general. The papers offer new insights into, among other things, the theoretical notion of comparative concepts, the social or mental nature of language structure, the areal factor in lexical typology and the diachronic implications of semantic maps. The collection will thus be of relevance to typologists and historical linguists, as well as to people studying variation within the areas of cognitive and functional linguistics." -- Provided by publisher
Marqueurs temporels et modaux en usage( )

7 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qu'il s'agisse de temps verbaux, d'auxiliaires, d'adverbes ou de conjonctions, la plupart des marqueurs temporels et modaux font preuve d'une grande flexibilité sémantique, qui se manifeste à travers leurs emplois dans des contextes différents. Les contributions réunies dans ce volume s'intéressent en majorité aux emplois d'une série de marqueurs du français (<<hexagonal>> ou non), mais aussi au fonctionnement de marqueurs d'autres langues (par exemple de l'espagnol ou du birman). Elles s'efforcent de décrire d'une façon détaillée les différentes interprétations de ces marqueurs, en privilégia
