9780199246526: Questions and Answers in Embedded Contexts (Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics)

Linguists have realized for some time that predicates of the "know" and "wonder" classes behave differently in semantic terms with respect to their interrogative complements, but have not so far fully understood how or why. This book seeks to explore and to provide solutions to this and to related problems in explaining the meaning and grammar of embedded interrogatives and the predicates that take interrogative complements (indirect questions and how they are answered).

About the Author:


Utpal Lahiri is Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics, University of California, Irvine. Having obtained his doctorate from MIT in 1991, he was Visiting Lecturer at the University of Connecticut (1992), and Lecturer at MIT (1991-2) before taking up his present position.

Review:

`For internal promotion only
Publication will be an important occasion. The book's simplifying vision of the semantics of interrogatives promises to finally make the subject fit for introductory graduate courses.'
Professor B. Schein, University of Southern California

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Linguists (and others) have realised for some time that predicates of the know and wonder classes behave differently, in semantic terms, with respect to their interrogative complements, but have not so far fully understood how or why. This book seeks to explore and to provide solutions to this and to related problems in explaining the meaning and grammar of embedded interrogatives and the predicates that take interrogative complements. The investigation extends to the semantics of adverbs of quantification, theories of plurals, and lexical selection. The work is addressed to those working in semantics and to syntacticians concerned with the constraints that syntactic structure imposes on semantic interpretation. It is at the heart of current research in the syntax-semantics interface. Although some knowledge of formal semantics is assumed, the book has been written to be accessible to researchers in computer science, philosophy, and cognitive science.
