The goal of this book is to investigate the semantics. This book investigates the reasons for the variability of absolute constructions, arguing that the logical relation between an absolute construction and the clause which it modifies may depend on a variety of factors--that this relation is, in some cases, determined by the semantic properties of an overt operator appearing in the modified.

This book combines a fieldwork-based language-specific analysis with a typological investigation. It offers a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the form and semantics of experiencer constructions in Yucatec, the Mayan language of the Yucatecan peninsula in Mexico. A new contribution to linguistic theory, this book presents a formal framework for the analysis of word structure in human language.

It sets forth the network of hypotheses constituting Paradigm Function Morphology, a theory of inflectional form whose central insight is that paradigms play an essential role in the definition of a language's system of word structure. In linguistics, an absolute construction is a grammatical construction standing apart from a normal or usual syntactical relation with other words or sentence elements.

It can be a non-finite clause that is subordinate in form and modifies an entire sentence, an adjective or possessive pronoun standing alone without a modified substantive, or a transitive verb when its object is implied but. from book Absolute Clauses in English from the Systemic Functional Perspective (pp) Absolute Clauses in the Literature.

The Semantic Variability of Absolute Constructions (Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy) by G.T. Stump Hardcover. “absolute construction” is given, the same term is used by the American scientists Anne Longknife in the book “The art of styling sentences” (Longknife, ) and Gregory Stump in work “Semantic variability of absolute constructions” (Stump, ).

The variety of existing terms is partly due to different approaches to determining the. Semantic Structures is a large-scale study of conceptual structure and its lexical and syntactic expression in English that builds on the system of Conceptual Semantics described in Ray Jackendoff's earlier books Semantics and Cognition and Consciousness and the Computational doff summarizes the relevant arguments in his two previous books, setting out the.

This book focuses on the structural diversity, semantic variability, case choice, stylistic characteristics and diachronic distribution of English absolute clauses. The syntactic roles assumed by absolute clauses in the traditional sense can be categorized into clausal adjuncts, attendant circumstances and appositives.

Split constructions are very widespread in natural languages. The separation of the semantic restriction of a quantifier from that quantifier is a typical example of such a construction. This study addresses the problem that such discontinuous strings exhibit a number of locality constraints, including intervention by: 3.

This paper traces the semantic development of the English absolute construction from Old to Present-day English on the basis of extensive corpus data.

It is observed that the absolute construction developed from a solely adverbial, strictly subordinate construction into a construction with a much larger range of functions, including quasi-coordinate constructions.

The present paper addresses the register diffusion of the English absolute, a non-finite construction functioning as an adverbial (an example from Present-day-English is: One of the cheap cigars to which she was addicted burns ignored between her fingers, the skin of her face dragging down with indifference.

Semantics (from Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, "significant") is the linguistic and philosophical study of meaning in language, programming languages, formal logics, and is concerned with the relationship between signifiers—like words, phrases, signs, and symbols—and what they stand for in reality, their denotation.

An starting point for our analysis is the observation by Bates, Bretherton, and Snyder that what “hangs together” in development can provide clues about the architecture of the underlying language learning mechanisms.

We think of these correlations – the statistical instantiation of “hanging togeether” – as providing targets for theorists.
