9780199252794: Subordination (Oxford Studies in Typology and Linguistic Theory)

This book presents a typology of subordination systems across the world's languages. Traditional definitions of subordination are based on morphosyntactic criteria, such as clausal embedding or non-finiteness. The book shows that these definitions are untenable in a cross-linguistic perspective, and provides a cognitively based definition of subordination.

About the Author:


Sonia Cristofaro received her Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of Pavia in 1998, and is now associate professor of Linguistics at the same university. Her main research areas include syntax, semantics and typology. Her publications include various articles on the syntax and semantics of complex sentences.

Review:

... a major cross-linguistic, typological study of subordination ... impressive in its scope ... an important study which is bound to stimulate further research on subordination, whether in individual languages or cross-linguistically. * LINGUIST List * the first systemic attempt to proivide a comprehensive functional account of the connections among all subordination types in terms of overall implicational hierarchies. To my mind, Cristofaro accomplishes this task with flying colours ... extremely well-written as well as user-friendly * Francisco Gonzalvez-Garcia, University of Almeria, Folia Linguistica *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book presents a typology of subordination systems across the world s languages. Traditional definitions of subordination are based on morphosyntactic criteria, such as clausal embedding or non-finiteness. The book shows that these definitions are untenable in a cross-linguistic perspective, and provides a cognitively based definition of subordination. The analysis is based on a representative 80 language sample, and represents the broadest study so far conducted on the cross-linguistic coding of several types of complement, adverbial, and relative sentence. These sentence types display considerable structural variation across languages. However, this variation turns out to be constrained, and appears crucially related to the functional properties of individual sentence types. This work is the first systematic attempt to establish comprehensive implicational hierarchies describing the coding of complement, adverbial and relative sentences at a single stroke. Concepts from typological theory and cognitive linguistics are integrated to account for these hierarchies. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780199252794
