Riguardo questo articolo

Paperback. 112 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.3in.No verb in human language necessitates the event it denotes to take place in a specific geographical area. Therefore, the lexical items and phrases denoting location are dubbed adjuncts. However, it seems that there is more to them than merely adjuncts. Recently, a German researcher, Claudia Maienborn, offered the following tripartite classification of locatives: Frame Setting Modifiers, External Modifiers and Internal Modifiers. Maienborn asserts that the three different types of locatives have three different underlying positions. Maienborn seems to have adequate grounds for such a classification. This book is a modest attempt to test her thesis against Turkish, an Altaic language. It covers but is not limited to tests, though. After a discussion of the tests, the fourth section offers a new analysis of internal modifiers. It argues that they should be better analyzed as small clauses. This analysis is promising since it reduces the number of classes Universal Grammar has to assume and nicely explains some peculiar properties of internal modifiers also referred to by Maienborn. The book should be helpful for scholars who are interested in Turkish syntax. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Riassunto:

No verb in human language necessitates the event it denotes to take place in a specific geographical area. Therefore, the lexical items and phrases denoting location are dubbed adjuncts. However, it seems that there is more to them than merely adjuncts. Recently, a German researcher, Claudia Maienborn, offered the following tripartite classification of locatives: Frame Setting Modifiers, External Modifiers and Internal Modifiers. Maienborn asserts that the three different types of locatives have three different underlying positions. Maienborn seems to have adequate grounds for such a classification. This book is a modest attempt to test her thesis against Turkish, an Altaic language. It covers but is not limited to tests, though. After a discussion of the tests, the fourth section offers a new analysis of internal modifiers. It argues that they should be better analyzed as small clauses. This analysis is promising since it reduces the number of classes Universal Grammar has to assume and nicely explains some peculiar properties of internal modifiers also referred to by Maienborn. The book should be helpful for scholars who are interested in Turkish syntax.
