Structures and Strategies (Hardcover): Adriana Belletti Structures and Strategies (Hardcover)
Adriana Belletti
R3,301 Discovery Miles 33 010 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Following crucial insights on the functional structure of the clause and recent developments within the cartographic projects and minimalism, this book addresses various central themes in Italian and Romance syntax ranging from verb syntax and the syntax of verb related phenomena of agreement and cliticization, to word order issues and their status in discourse contexts. It illustrates a research program where the basic formal components of grammar, the rich cartographic syntactic structures, are directly implicated in morphosyntactic computations proper as well as in the articulation of discourse strategies.

Language Acquisition and Development - Proceedings of GALA2005 (Hardcover, Unabridged edition): Adriana Belletti, Elisa... Language Acquisition and Development - Proceedings of GALA2005 (Hardcover, Unabridged edition)
Adriana Belletti, Elisa Bennati, Cristiano Chesi
R1,689 Discovery Miles 16 890 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The collection provides a rich picture of the current status of theoretically guided studies on first and second language acquisition and pathology by some of the most engaged young and senior researchers. Articles ranging from the acquisition of different syntactic structures and computations to issues related to semantic interpretation and phonological analyses are presented. The book is a representative illustration of the comparative perspective in the study of language acquisition and pathology as data from several different languages are considered in fine detail in the various articles. The book will be of interest to all working on language acquisition and pathology and it will provide students with a most updated picture of the most studied current issues in the filed.

Smuggling in Syntax (Paperback): Adriana Belletti, Chris Collins Smuggling in Syntax (Paperback)
Adriana Belletti, Chris Collins
R1,202 Discovery Miles 12 020 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

One of the fundamental properties of human language is movement, where a constituent moves from one position in a sentence to another position. Syntactic theory has long been concerned with properties of movement, including locality restrictions. Smuggling in Syntax investigates how different movement operations interact with one another, focusing on the special case of smuggling. First introduced by volume editor Chris Collins in 2005, the term 'smuggling' refers to a specific type of movement interaction. The contributions in this volume each describe different areas where smuggling derivations play a role, including passives, causatives, adverb placement, the dative alternation, the placement of measure phrases, wh-in-situ, and word order in ergative languages. The volume also addresses issues like the freezing constraint on movement and the acquisition of smuggling derivations by children. In this work, Adriana Belletti and Chris Collins bring together leading syntacticians to present a range of contributions on different aspects of smuggling. Tackling fundamental theoretical questions with empirical consequences, this volume explores one of the least understood types of movement and points the way toward new research.

On Nature and Language (Paperback): Noam Chomsky On Nature and Language (Paperback)
Noam Chomsky; Edited by Adriana Belletti, Luigi Rizzi
R885 Discovery Miles 8 850 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In On Nature and Language Noam Chomsky develops his thinking on the relation between language, mind, and brain, integrating current research in linguistics into the burgeoning field of neuroscience. Following a lucid introduction is a penetrating interview with Chomsky, in which he provides the clearest and most elegant introduction to current theory available. It makes his Minimalist Program accessible to all. The volume concludes with an essay on the role of intellectuals in society and government. A significant landmark in the development of linguistic theory, On Nature and Language will be welcomed by students and researchers in theoretical linguistics, neurolinguistics, cognitive science and politics, as well as anyone interested in the development of Chomsky's thought. Noam Chomsky is Professor of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Chomsky has written and lectured extensively on philosophy, intellectual history, and international affairs. His works include The Architecture of Language, Aspects of the Theory of Syntax; Cartesian Linguistics; Language and Mind; American Power and the New Mandarins; At War with Asia; For Reasons of State; Peace in the Middle East? Reflections on Language; Rules and Representations; The Culture of Terrorism; Rethinking Camelot; JFKm the Vietnam War and US Political Culture; World Orders, Old and New and The Common Good.

Structures and Beyond: Volume 3: The Cartography of Syntactic Structures (Paperback, New): Adriana Belletti Structures and Beyond: Volume 3: The Cartography of Syntactic Structures (Paperback, New)
Adriana Belletti
R1,590 Discovery Miles 15 900 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This is the third volume in the subset of volumes in the comparative syntax series devoted to the cartography of syntactic structures.
Adriana Belletti has collected articles by top linguists that were originally presented at a workshop at the University of Siena in conjunction with a visit by Noam Chomsky. The articles go beyond mapping syntactic and semantic/pragmatic properties, also touching on broader questions, particularly related to the Minimalist Program and other recent theoretical developments.
Contributors include Adriana Belletti, Alfonso Caramazza, Gennaro Chierchia, Guglielmo Cinque, Noam Chomsky, Richard Kayne, Jacques Mehler, Marina Nespor, Luigi Rizzi, Kevin Shapiro, and Michael Starke.

Adriana Belletti here collects work presented by top scholars at a workshop at the University of Siena in connection with a visit by Noam Chomsky. These eight articles go beyond strictly mapping syntactic properties, touching on broader theoretical questions related to Chomsky's Minimalist Program in particular. The reputation of the contributors, combined with the collection of cutting-edge research in one place, will interest scholars and students of generative linguistics.

Parameters and Functional Heads - Essays in Comparative Syntax (Paperback, New): Adriana Belletti, Luigi Rizzi Parameters and Functional Heads - Essays in Comparative Syntax (Paperback, New)
Adriana Belletti, Luigi Rizzi
R1,590 Discovery Miles 15 900 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The essays collected in this volume, most previously unpublished, address a number of closely interconnected issues raised by the comparative syntax of functional heads within the Principles-and-Parameters approach. The general theory of head movement, the properties of derived structures created by incorporation, and the parameterization involved are the main theoretical foci. One major empirical area which is addressed concerns head movement in configurations involving certain kinds of operator-like elements, for example, the different manifestations of Verb Second phenomena in Wh and other constructions and the syntax of negative heads and specifiers. In addition, properties of functional heads and head movement in nominal and clausal structures and the causative construction are investigated.
