    This book is a major breakthrough in our understanding of numerals. The authors deliver an analysis of their byzantine data with gusto, and the quality of their writing is equal to their analytical skills: the material is presented clearly, engagingly, and convincingly. A must-read for anyone who wants to see syntax and semantics done right. Quantification has been at the heart of research in the syntax and semantics of natural language since Aristotle. The last few decades have seen an explosion of detailed studies of the syntax and semantics of quantification and its relation to the rest of the theory of grammar, resulting in a highly sophisticated understanding of the mechanisms of quantification.

    This book challenges the current consensus on the analysis of wh-questions and reflexives from the perspective of the syntax-semantics interface. Download the eBook Prominence and Locality in Grammar: The Syntax and Semantics of Wh-Questions and Reflexives - Jianhua Hu in PDF or EPUB format and read it directly on your mobile phone. This book addresses recent developments in the study of quantifier phrases, nominalizations, and the linking definite determiner. It reflects the intense reconsideration of the nature of quantification, and of fundamental aspects of the syntax and semantics of quantifier phrases. Leading international scholars explore novel and challenging ideas at the interfaces between syntax and morphology.

    The "glue" approach has attracted significant attention from, among others, logicians working in the relatively new and active field of linear logic; linguists interested in a novel deductive approach to the interface between syntax and semantics within a nontransformational, constraint-based syntactic framework; and computational linguists and. Abstract. Throughout early English grammars and the following linguistic literature of the 20th century, the class of quantifiers has faced an identity crisis, brought about most strongly by purely or strongly syntax-based analyses and the lack of a comprehensive account of the semantic behavior of quantification.

Interactions of Degree and Quantification is a collection of chapters edited by Peter Hallman that deal with superlative, equative and differential constructions cross-linguistically, interactions of the comparative with both individual quantifiers and event structure, the use of the individual quantifier ‘some’ as a numeral, and the question of whether the very notion of ‘degree’ is.

Quantification forms a significant aspect of cross-linguistic research into both sentence structure and meaning. This book surveys research in quantification starting with the foundational work in the s.

It paints a vivid picture of generalized quantifiers and Boolean semantics.5/5(1). Crosslinguistic Research in Syntax and Semantics covers a range of topics currently at the center of lively debate in the linguistic literature, such as the structure of the left periphery of the clause, the proper treatment of negative polarity items, and the role of statistical learning in building a.

Syntax and Semantics of Quantification in Chinese. Jianxin Wu. Following the spirit of Hornstein (), this thesis explores the possibility of eliminating entire LF A’-movement. The standard LF-movement analysis of wh-in-situ is shown to be neither conceptually desirable nor empirically adequate.

Wh-in-situ are bound in situ by the. Quantification. Quantifiers are linguistic expressions that specify or quantify a set. In everyday language, they are expressed by indefinite adjectives or pronouns (e.g.

all, some, several), numerals (e.g. one, two, three), the definite and indefinite article (the, a/an) or indefinite plurals (books). In formal logic, quantification specifies for how many objects in a certain set a predicate. Locality in WH Quantification argues that Logical Form, the level that mediates between syntax and semantics, is derived from S-structure by strictly local movement.

The primary data for the claim of locality at LF is drawn from Hindi but English data is used in discussing the semantics. The book is meant primarily as a research monograph aimed at linguists who have some background in formal semantics, e.

Montague Grammar. C's book is an important document for students of natural language quantification, and of the relation of the syntax and semantics of natural language more generally.

It leads us to consider an. Much of the interesting work in linguistics today concerns the interfaces between the traditional components of grammar. The aim of the Syntax and Semantics series is to publish exciting and innovative research involving the sub-systems of grammar that interface with syntax and semantics.

This crucially includes the syntax-semantics interface itself, but also the systematic interplay of syntax. Key words: classifiers, count, mass, quantification 1. Introduction The count-mass distinction has received much attention among linguists, philosophers and psychologists over the past few decades.

For languages where the count-mass distinction is made in syntax (e.g. English), it serves as a test case of syntax-semantics relation. In English.

It includes three general topics: (a) questions, indefinites and quantification, (b) anaphora, (c) lexical structure and the syntax of events. Semantics is defined as the study of meaning expressed by elements of a language or combinations thereof. These combinations of language--whether written or spoken--are used to convey information, and are linked with kinds of events, with states of mind, etc.

It is a friendly guide through the difficult terrain of argument structure. Much more than a survey, it addresses foundational and current issues in the syntax and semantics of argument structure in an exemplarily clear-headed and even-handed way."Reviews: 1.

This module provides an introduction to the formal syntax and semantics of natural language, in particular Montague-style compositional semantics using a Categorial Grammar model of syntax. Half of the module will focus on the theory of syntax, followed by an example of how recent advances in parsing technology allow such a theory to be.

Of all the definitions that will follow shortly, there are four important ideas to grasp: the syntax of a language, the model-theoretic semantics of a language, what a theory means in the context of logic, and the notion of deduction where we apply some rules to what has been represented explicitly so as to derive knowledge that was represented.
