The subparagraph morphological and syntactic proper-ties deals with the classification of morphemes according to Kortmann but also with the lexical category of the base and with the finding of particular suffixes. The phono-logical properties offer an analysis concerning syllables, stress pattern and pronuncia-tion whereas the semantic properties is about pseudo- as an pejorative prefix. Chapter five is called morphological status and here I make a discussion about combining forms. In chapter six transparency, I define this term and describe how transparent the element is. The chapter of frequency and productivity (Chapter 7) is about how of-ten the element occurs and from this it follows a debate about its productivity rate. In the last chapter I compare pseudo- with mchtegern- and analyze it concerning a certain rivalry between the two morphemes. The analysis of the element pseudo- is based on the data collection of several corpora.

Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.1in.Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1, 7, University of Stuttgart (Linguistik-Anglistik), course: Advanced Morphology, 17 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: The paper discusses one special idea in theoretical linguistics and its implications for morphology - the Separation Hypothesis, developed by Robert Beard (1966-1995). , abstract: In the following I will concentrate on one special idea in theoretical linguistics and its implications for morphology - the Separation Hypothesis, developed by Robert Beard (1966- 1995). Beard tried to find a universal set of principles governing all meanings expressed morphologically, . . . and claims that the semantic side of morphology obeys principles which are to a large extent independent of its formal, or morphophonological, side. (Carstairs-McCarthy 1992: 173) As a consequence his approach is a rigid separation of the two aspects of morphology - form and meaning (therefore the name of his hypothesis, on which he built his morphological framework). The aim of this paper is to show how the Separation Hypothesis works and to elaborate on the main arguments in favour of this hypothesis and the problems that might occur when dealing with morphology in this way. To highlight its unique status and underline its main ideas it will be contrasted with Liebers lexical approach to morphology. Yet, this approach will be introduced only as far as it is needed to accentuate the characteristics of Beards theory. As the very short glance on morphology as a subdiscipline has shown, this field of linguistic theory is, due to its status as an interface, an ideal area for divers investigations. It goes without saying that the Separation Hypothesis, the basis of Lexeme-Morpheme-Base Morphology, could be contrasted with numerous other theories different or similar to it, in order to set it apart. Nevertheless, this paper will focus only on Liebers This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9783640543649

About this Item: GRIN Verlag. Paperback. Condition: New. 20 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 7.0in. x 0.1in.Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2, 0, http: www. uni-jena. de (Institut fr AnglistikAmerikanistik), course: Historical Linguistics, language: English, abstract: Language change is a steadily continuing process. Languages were changing 2000 years ago. They are changing today and they will certainly be changing in the future. So we are able to determine different steps in the development of the English language: roughly speaking, Old English, Middle English, and Modern English. All of them are different from each other in terms of semantics, phonology, or morphology. In this manner, morphological and syntactic, phonological, lexical and semantic characteristics of a particular language are altering all the time. These processes may happen consciously or unconsciously. They may be perceived by the speakers of the respective language or they may be not. However, this process is always going on. Furthermore, there are lots of motivations causing those changes. As an example, the ambition to ease pronunciation - that is, the reduction of effort that is necessary for moving the speech articulators - causes changes in phonology. The contact between several languages may cause lexical and semantic change as well as phonological change. Social pressures may be equally influential. Lexical items, additionally, may take over grammatical functions losing their original meaning due to frequent usage of the particular word or phrase. Thus, a language, as will be explained in this paper, is generally shaped and altered by using it. In fact, a number of linguists claim that language change is caused by competing motivations, which . . . can never all be satisfied at once. This seminar paper deals with the processes of language change and these competing motivations. Hence, the various types of language changes - lexical and semantic, morphological and syntactic as well as phonological changes - will This item ships from multiple locations.

Introduction Since mankind uses language it formed sentences to communicate. Therefore it is necessary to put words together in a meaningful way. But although a word is a unit which is familiar in our culture, the notion that it has an internal structure is not. (Matthews 1974 : 9). That is where morphology comes in. Being a Professor of Linguistics at the University of Cambridge Peter Matthews published his well known book Morphology. It is about his thoughts and results of research in that concern. What is morphology Morphology is beside syntax, semantics and phonology and phonetics one major subfield of linguistics. Its origin is in nineteenth century as the first reference for morphology in the Oxford English Dictionary was in the 1860s. It deals with the word itself. That means morphology is about forms of words in different uses and constructions. It is divided into subfields like lexical or inflectional morphology. Lexical morphology is concerned with relations among lexemes such as compounding whereas inflectional morphology deals with paradigms which show a lexeme in terms of categories like Singular and Plural. This term paper is to regard both subfields of morphology in reference to creating new words (neologisms) in the Early Modern period. It is beside from borrowing aiming a special aspect of word structure namely word-formation because this two means represent the most significant ways out of which many neologisms arose. But what is it that makes words and their structure or formations so interesting Words help us to express ourselves. We produce them every day. So everybody is involved in that concern. I personally have never asked before where all these words that we use more or less every day have come from. That is one r This item ships from multiple locations.

About this Item: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company. Paperback. Condition: New. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.8in. x 0.7in.Understanding of biblical poetry, like any other, is enhanced by the study of its structure. In The Dynamics of Biblical Parallelism Adele Berlin analyzes parallelism, a major feature of biblical poetry, from a linguistic perspective. Berlin begins with a brief history of the study of biblical parallelism by biblical scholars. She then focuses on parallelism considered more broadly in the work of linguist Roman Jakobson, a new section in this second edition. The chapters following concentrate on the various linguistic levels that come into play in the construction of parallel lines. Here is the key observation that parallel lines involve both similarity and difference on all linguistic levels - morphology, syntax, lexical, semantic, and phonologic. Berlin concludes by showing how these levels can be combined and analyzing examples of parallelism in biblical passages. Linguistic, but not overly technical, The Dynamics of Biblical Parallelism will enhance understanding of biblical poetry for both biblical and literary scholars.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2,0, // (Institut fur Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Historical Linguistics, language: English, abstract: Language change is a steadily continuing process. Languages were changing 2000 years ago. They are changing today and they will certainly be changing in the future. So we are able to determine different steps in the development of the English language: roughly speaking, Old English, Middle English, and Modern English. All of them are different from each other in terms of semantics, phonology, or morphology. In this manner, morphological and syntactic, phonological, lexical and semantic characteristics of a particular language are altering all the time. These processes may happen consciously or unconsciously. They may be perceived by the speakers of the respective language or they may be not. However, this process is always going on. Furthermore, there are lots of motivations causing those changes. As an example, the ambition to ease pronunciation - that is, the reduction of effort that is necessary for moving the speech articulators - causes changes in phonology. The contact between several languages may cause lexical and semantic change as well as phonological change. Social pressures may be equally influential. Lexical items, additionally, may take over grammatical functions losing their original meaning due to frequent usage of the particular word or phrase. Thus, a language, as will be explained in this paper, is generally shaped and altered by using it. In fact, a number of linguists claim that language change is caused by competing motivations, which [.] can never all be satisfied at once. This seminar paper deals with the processes of language change and these competing motivations. Hence, the various types of language changes - lexical and semantic, morphological and syntactic as well as phonological changes - will. Seller Inventory # APC9783656320791

About this Item: Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Structuring Sense explores the difference between words however defined and structures however constructed. It sets out to demonstrate over three volumes that the explanation of linguistic competence should be shifted from lexical entry to syntactic structure, from memory of words to manipulation of rules. Its reformulation of how grammar and lexicon interact has profound implications for linguistic, philosophical, and psychological theories about human mind and language. Hagit Borer departs from language specific constructional approaches and from lexicalist approaches to argue that universal hierarchical structures determine interpretation, and that language variation emerges from the morphological and phonological properties of inflectional material. Taking Form, the third and final volume of Structuring Sense, applies this radical approach to the construction of complex words. Integrating research in syntax and morphology, the author develops a new model of word formation, arguing that on the one hand the basic building blocks of language are rigid semantic and syntactic functions, while on the other hand they are roots, which in themselves are but packets of phonological information, and are devoid of both meaning and grammatical properties of any kind. Within such a model, syntactic category, syntactic selection and argument structure are all mediated through syntactic structures projected from rigid functions, or alternatively, constructed through general combinatorial principles of syntax, such as Chomsky s Merge. The meaning of words , in turn, does not involve the existence of lexemes, but rather the matching of a well-defined and phonologically articulated syntactic domain with conceptual Content, itself outside the domain of language as such. In a departure from most current models of syntax but in line with many philosophical traditions, then, the Exo-Skeletal model partitions meaning into formal functions, on the one hand, and Content, on the other hand. While the former are read off syntactico-semantic structures as is usually assumed, Content is crucially read off syntactico-phonological structures. Seller Inventory # POW9780199263943

About this Item: Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this book Elizabeth Closs Traugott and Graeme Trousdale develop an approach to language change based on construction grammar. Construction grammar is a theory of signs construed at the level of the phrase, clause, and complex sentence. Until now it has been mainly synchronic. The authors use it to reconceptualize grammaticalization (the process by which verbs like to have lose semantic content and gain grammatical functions, or word order is reorganised as syntax-prominent rather than discourse-prominent), and lexicalization (in which idioms become fixed and complex words simplified). Basing their argument on the notions that language is made up of language-specific form-meaning pairings and that there is a gradient between lexical and grammatical constructions, Professor Traugott and Dr Trousdale suggest that language change proceeds by micro-steps that involve closely related changes in syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse functions. They illustrate their exposition with numerous English examples drawn from Anglo-Saxon times to the present, many of which they discuss in depth. The book is organized in six chapters. The first outlines the approach and the questions to be addressed, while the second reviews usage-based models of language change, and the third considers the relation between grammatical constructionalization and grammaticalization. Chapters 4 and 5 focus respectively on lexical constructionalization and the role of context, before the final chapter draws the authors arguments together and outlines prospects for further research. Constructionalization and Constructional Changes propounds and demonstrates a new and productive approach to historical linguistics. Seller Inventory # AOP9780198783541

Morphology and Lexical Semantics explores the meanings of morphemes and how they combine to form the meanings of complex words, including derived words (writer, unionise), compounds (dog bed, truck driver) and words formed by conversion. Rochelle Lieber discusses the lexical semantics of word formation in a systematic way, allowing the reader to explore the nature of affixal polysemy, the reasons why there are multiple affixes with the same function and the issues of mismatch between form and meaning in word formation. Using a series of case studies from English, this book develops and justifies the theoretical apparatus necessary for raising and answering many questions about the semantics of word formation. Distinguishing between a lexical semantic skeleton that is featural and hierarchically organised and a lexical semantic body that is holistic, it shows how the semantics of word formation has a paradigmatic character.

Introduction Since mankind uses language it formed sentences to communicate. Therefore it is necessary to put words together in a meaningful way. But although a word is a unit which is familiar in our culture, the notion that it has an internal structure is not. (Matthews 1974: 9). That is where morphology comes in. Being a Professor of Linguistics at the University of Cambridge Peter Matthews published his well known book Morphology . It is about his thoughts and results of research in that concern. What is morphology? Morphology is beside syntax, semantics and phonology and phonetics one major subfield of linguistics. Its origin is in nineteenth century as the first reference for morphology in the Oxford English Dictionary was in the 1860s. It deals with the word itself. That means morphology is about forms of words in different uses and constructions. It is divided into subfields like lexical or inflectional morphology. Lexical morphology is concerned with relations among lexemes such as compounding whereas inflectional morphology deals with paradigms which show a lexeme in terms of categories like Singular and Plural. This term paper is to regard both subfields of morphology in reference to creating new words (neologisms) in the Early Modern period. It is beside from borrowing aiming a special aspect of word structure namely word-formation because this two means represent the most significant ways out of which many neologisms arose. But what is it that makes words and their structure or formations so interesting? Words help us to express ourselves. We produce them every day. So everybody is involved in that concern. I personally have never asked before where all these words that we use more or less every day have come from. That is one r. Seller Inventory # AAV9783640937646

About this Item: United Kingdom: Psychology Pr, 1999. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Book Description Language has always been seen as a cornerstone of human intelligence yet psycholinguistics only became a recognized branch of psychology 35 years ago. At the outset it was mainly concerned with testing theories developed in linguistics following Chomsky's revolution, but since then it has become a discipline in its own right, forming a central component of cognitive science. This book is concerned with what happens when we process language - what mental operations occur during processing and how they are organized over time. It gives an account of these developments both as they relate to experimental studies of processing and as they relate to computational modeling of the processes. There are chapters covering core topics such as lexical processing, syntactic parsing and the comprehension of discourse, as well as special topics which have recently attracted interest, such as the role of morphology, reference and prosody in processing. Recent advances in the study of dialogue and psychological semantics are also discussed. Book. Seller Inventory # H4423
