Description

This book builds a semantics for several kinds of future-referring expressions, including will sentences, be going .

This book builds a semantics for several kinds of future-referring expressions, including will sentences, be going to sentences, and futurates. While there exists previous work on future-referring expressions, this is the first treatment of such a variety of expressions in a formal semantic framework. Arguments presented here in explicate the meanings of these expressions, This book builds a semantics for several kinds of future-referring expressions, including will sentences, be going to sentences, and futurates

The Semantics and Pragmatics of Preposing. Author: Gregory Ward. & part we haven't finished yet') and provides a unified theory of their discourse function.

The Semantics and Pragmatics of Preposing. An analysis of naturally occurring data reveals that these constructions perform two simultaneous functions in discourse. First, the referent of the preposed constituent marks the backward looking center (BLC) of an utterance (cf. Grosz, Joshi, and Weinstein 1983).

Gregory Ward is Professor of Linguistics at Northwestern University. 26. Pragmatics and Computational Linguistics. This outstanding and far-ranging compendium comprises 32 articles that trace the contours of the field of pragmatics. Part IV: Pragmatics And Cognition.

The discourse function of inversion in English (Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics). New York: Garland Publishing. Evidence for this conclusion is adduced from the licensing conditions on its occurrence, from the availability of morphological mismatches, and from reconstruction facts. By contrast, we show that English participle preposing is a well-behaved case of v P-movement, contrasting with v P-preposing with respect to reconstruction properties in particular.

It also involves removing features specific to particular linguistic and cultural contexts, to the extent that such a project is possible.

This book is an introduction to the theory and practice of semantics in modern linguistics. Although this is not an introduction to any single theory, we begin with a basic assumption: that a person s linguistic abilities are based on knowledge that they have. It is this knowledge that we are seeking to investigate.
