About this title

Synopsis:

The exploration of meaning in human languages has traditionally focused on the relation between linguistic forms and what they refer to in the world. Most approaches to formal semantics have been driven by this preoccupation. Recent years, however, have seen the growth of a parallel preoccupation, that of exploring the relation between patterns of meaning and grammatical structure, leading to the search for a restricted subset of meanings that interact with the grammatical system of human languages. As part of this research program of 'grammatical semantics', this collection of papers addresses questions of what the atomic elements of grammatically relevant meanings should be, how they must be represented, and how these representations interact with representations of other dimensions of language structure. The papers converge on the idea that morpheme-internal and phrasal meanings are represented along a single dimension, distinct from syntactic representations. Among the phenomena described are alternations of aspectual classes of predicates, event modification and event elaboration, and presuppositions, and the languages include English, Malay, Malayalam, and Mandarin.

Store Description

Charlie Byrne's Bookshop was established in Galway city in 1989. The shop now occupies a 2000 square foot premises on Middle St. and carries approximately 80,000 titles. We sell mainly secondhand books and publisher's overstock, i.e. new books at reduced prices. The latter we choose carefully, stocking what we consider to be interesting titles at good value. Many are sourced from American publishers and university presses, so we carry many titles not found in regular bookshops. We stock a small selection of newly published books at full price. These would include books on Irish archaeology and works by local Galway authors. Most subject areas are covered in the shop, from mysteries and crime writing to philosophy and cultural studies. Our comprehensive selection include sections on Irish and European history, modern literature, Irish fiction, Irish archaeology and literary biography. The shop is popular with both Galwegians and visitors alike. It's a place to spend some leisurely time and where browsing is encouraged. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff are always available to help customers with recommendations.
