Syntax in the making : the emergence of syntactic units in Finnish by Marja-Liisa Helasvuo( )

24 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on the interplay between language structure and language use has shown that grammar is shaped, maintained, and modified by language use. In this view, then, grammar is not seen as existing apart from language use, but rather as a set of recurrent, grammaticized patterns of discourse. This book focuses on syntactic structuring in Finnish from the viewpoint of language use. The author sets out to study syntactic structures in their local contexts in order to discover the more global patterns and constraints on the use of these structures. The coding strategies point to the clause core a
Grammar from the human perspective : case, space and person in Finnish( )

Marja-Liisa Helasvuo's paper discusses passive constructions in Finnish. Based on a large database of spoken Finnish, she argues that contrary to the received view in Finnish linguistics, there are actually two types of passive in Finnish, namely the so-called simple passive (formed by the verb stem + passive suffix + personal marker) and a periphrastic passive; the latter is the so-called be -passive, formed with the verb 'to be' in its 3<sup>rd</sup> person singu℗Ưlar form (on) and a passive participle of the main verb. In the be -passive, the finite verb is in the 3<sup>rd
Subjects in constructions - canonical and non-canonical by Marja-Liisa Helasvuo( )

We offer a model of Russian core syntax in terms of a radial category networkof constructions. The prototype corresponds to Langacker's "canonical eventmodel", namely a prototypical transitive event, and more peripheral constructionsare related to it via metaphor and metonymy. From this perspective wefocus on non-canonical subjects marked in the dative case, highlighting thecomplex interaction of lexical items (verbs) with constructions, and buildingon our previous work on case and infinitives. We hypothesize that a speaker'sperception of cause may be influenced by the use of non-canonical sub
Discourses in interaction( Book )

The fourteen contributions in this collection come from different approaches in pragmatics, interactional linguistics, conversation analysis, discourse analysis and dialogue analysis; the name given to what is studied ranges from spoken language and conversation to interaction, dialogue, discourse and communication. What the articles have in common is a similar starting point: they are informed by a form of linguistic understanding which has emerged within what could be called the interactional turn. The materials investigated come from several different languages, representing a variety of in
