This book offers a syntax and a semantics of nonverbal predicates (i.e., nominal, adjectival, and prepositional predicates) in copular sentences. It explores how the different interpretations of nonverbal predicates can be accounted for in a system that maintains a single structure for predication. The book departs from earlier studies by arguing in favor of a ternary distinction between. The structural and semantic properties of adverbials represent a still poorly understood area of sentential syntax and semantics in Germanic languages. In particular, it is an open question which different adverbial usages need to be distinguished, which usages are tied to which syntactic positions, and how these different usage can be formally analyzed. Focussing on adverbial adjectives in.
The study of the syntax–semantics interface is concerned with linguistic phenomena that are the product of interactions between principles of syntactic organization and principles of semantic interpretation. Such interactions abound in natural language and can be found in all subsystems of the grammar. Syntax, Semantics, Pragmatics. The study of language is often divided into semantics, syntactics and pragmatics. Similar divisions appear in computer science where the construction and application of computer programs are investigated.
The paper ‘Degree Expressions at the Syntax-Semantics Interface’ by Jens Fleischhauer is concerned with verb gradation. The goal of the paper is to show that diUerent types of verb gradation – degree gradation on the one hand and extent gradation on the other – are realised in . The deﬁniteness feature at the syntax-semantics interface GABI DANON Introduction Cross-linguistically, genitive constructions in which embedding does not make use of a prepositional element have often been noted to display some kind of sharing of deﬁniteness value between the embedded nominal and the larger one.

ON SUBJECTS AND PREDICATES IN RUSSIAN by Alona Soschen Submitted to the Department of Linguistics in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA Thesis supervisor: Maria-Luisa Rivero Ottawa, Ontario, In the recent literature, two uniform treatments of agreement have been proposed, both locating agreement at the syntax-semantics interface: the account of Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG; Polland and Sag ), and the lexicon-based account (Wunderlich ).
Within HPSG, all grammatical information of lexical items, as well as. Adjectives and adverbs, whose primary functions are modiﬁcational rather than predicational, raise interesting challenges for specifying the nature of the interfaces between syntax, lexical and phrasal semantics, and discourse.
