Book Information

   

Title: Transitivity
Subtitle: Form, Meaning, Acquisition, and Processing
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20166
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 166
Description:

What happens when a canonically transitive form meets a canonically transitive
meaning, and what happens when this doesn’t happen? How do dyadic forms
relate to monadic ones, and what are the entailments of the operations that the
grammar uses to relate one to the other? Collecting original expert work from
acquisition, processing, typological and theoretical syntax-semantics research,
this volume provides a state of the art as well as cutting edge discussion of
central issues in the realm of Transitivity. These include the definition and role
of "Natural Transitivity", the interpretation and repercussions of valency
changing operations and differential case marking, and the interactions between
(in)transitive Gestalts in different categories and at different levels of
representation.
