Henk van Riemsdijk Doubling trouble: some remarks on wh-concord in Swiss German
Abstract: The notion “doubling” is widespread in linguistics. But it is mostly used as a pre-theoretical notion that potentially covers an enormous range of phenomena. Mochilas Kanken InfantilWomen Air Jordan 6 If the notion is to be of some use, we must, gradually, work our way towards a definition (or a set of definitions) of “doubling”. nike air max 2017 pas cher femme In order to do so, specific cases that might be subsumed under the term doubling must be studied in detail and analyzed and be made amenable to an account in terms of current theorizing.

Ion Giurgea and Eva-Maria Remberger Verum focus and polar questionsAbstract: We argue that some word order phenomena in Romanian and Sardinian are the result of a checking operation in the left periphery involving verum focus (i.e. Nike Air Max 2016 Heren wit focus on the polarity component of the sentence). adidas hamburg damskie
In Sardinian, an entire phrase headed by the lexical predicate (verbal non-finite form or non-verbal predicate) is fronted before the auxiliary. nike buty sklepadidas xeno superstar italia We argue that this order is obtained by two movement operations, head-raising of Aux to Foc and movement of the predicate phrase to SpecFoc. New Balance 373 hombre We also present the semantics of polarity focus, distinguishing several types of focus (informational, emphatic, contrastive).

Daniela Isac Imperatives are modal
Abstract: It has been noted repeatedly in the literature (Huntley 1982, Huntley 1984, Davies 1986, Wilson and Sperber 1988, Ninan 2005, Han 1998, etc.) that imperatives have a modal dimension, given that they present a proposition as a possible and desirable state of affairs.
billig nike air norge However, the opinion that imperatives are modal is not shared by all researchers. For example, Portner (2007) claims that imperatives are not modal, in spite of the fact that they share a range of interpretations with modals. In this article I argue that imperatives are in fact modal and that the differences that Portner (2007) identifies are relevant for distinguishing not only between priority modals and imperatives, but between two larger classes of verbal forms, that include priority modals and imperatives, respectively. Crucially, the larger class of verbal forms that includes imperatives and that contrasts with priority modals are undisputedly modal. Thus, differing from priority modals does not necessarily imply lack of modality, but simply a different type of modality.
Alina-Mihaela Tigău The Accusative morpheme -(Y)I in Turkish and differential object marking in Romanian
Abstract: Romanian differentially marked object DPs and object DPs carrying the accusative morphological marker –(y)i in Turkish pattern alike in that they acquire a specific (D-linked / covert partitive) meaning. The semantic contribution of specificity as D-linking is to link the denotation of the (specific) DP in question to previously established referents. New Balance 009 męskieNike Air Max 2016 Dames Zwartnike air max 2017 heren blauw The referent of the specific DP is thus a subset of (or stands in some recoverable relation to) a familiar object. Maglia Paul George The anaphoric interpretation seems to find a justification if one considers that the doubled / dislocated DP moves out of VP and into SpecVP (the VP phase edge), which is a position where, according to Lopez (2009) pragmatic rules apply. Nike Air Max TN Femme The feature [+a] is assigned to SpecvP, triggering the anaphoric interpretation of DOM-ed DPs.
Nike Roshe Run Heren The doubled / dislocated DP does move out of the VP, as pointed out by the existence of inverse binding effects (Cornilescu 2006). fjallraven kanken backpacks uk Lastly, we formalize the semantic contribution of differentially marked DPs with the aid of DRT. Canotte Indiana Pacers The underlying idea of this formalization was that the denotation of the direct object DP is related to the denotation of the clitic pronoun by means of a subset-set relation.
Viorela-Valentina Dima How do adjectival modifiers contribute to the temporal interpretation of nominals?
Abstract: Starting from the assumption that nominals contain (at least) one internal temporal variable which may be located in time by various cross-linguistic means (see Pustejovsky 1995, 1998 a.o.), the aim of the present paper is to examine the way in which adjectival modifiers influence the temporal interpretation of head nominals. New Balance 999 hombre We will analyze examples which contain relational adjectives (e.g. fjallraven kanken mini (enfants) 7 Lnew balance md 1500 homme ‘antique’, ‘modern’) and intensional adjectives (e.g. ‘former’, ‘future’, ‘present’).
Andrei A. Avram Some phonological changes in Maltese reflected in onomastics
Abstract: The present paper evaluates the onomastic evidence for some of the changes affecting consonants in the history of Maltese. Detroit Pistonsnike air max 2017 femme rouge The analysis is based on a rich corpus of surnames, nicknames and place-names recorded between early 15th century and late 18th century. nike air max 2017 heren rood Onomastics is shown to offer valuable insights into the gradual emergence of the system of consonantal phonemes of Modern Maltese and of some of its specific phonological rules. Bart Starr Packers JerseysNike air max 90 pas cher It is also shown that evidence from onomastics disconfirms previous claims regarding the chronology of some of the changes affecting the consonants of Maltese.
Simona Mazilu The use of analogy in pro-life argumentation
Abstract: The paper is concerned with how analogy is strategically used in pro-life argumentation on abortion. nike air max 1 pas cherAdidas Superstar Heren Pragma-dialectics (van Eemeren and Grootendorst 1992) offers a set of critical questions by means of which I will evaluate the use of the argumentation based on a relation of analogy in terms of dialectical soundness.
Matt Cain Jerseynike buty sklep Therefore, despite the apparent similarities between abortion and the German holocaust or slavery, for instance, there are essential differences which are not mentioned. New Balance 996 męskie I claim that these analogies mainly have a rhetorical function, to operate what has been called by Micheli (2007: 960) “a transfer of emotional consensus”.
Zsuzsanna Ajtony The language of the hybrid: verbal manifestations of identity and alterity in G.B. Nike Air Max 2016 Italia Shaw’s John Bull’s Other Island
Abstract: This paper presents the discursive construction of ethnic identities in the verbal behaviour of the three major characters of G. nike tn 2017 homme B. Shaw’s John Bull’s Other Island (1904): the English protagonist Thomas Broadbent, and two ethnic Irish characters, Larry Doyle and Father Keegan. Amari Cooper Alabama Football Jerseysnike air max 180 chaussuresWomen Air Jordan 6 The play is approached with the help of micro-sociolinguistic methods, focusing on face-to-face conversational interactions between characters, as ethnic stereotypes. asics kinsei 4 gel The main linguistic means of expressing ethnic sameness and difference (deictic ‘we’ vs.
‘they’, politeness strategies, markers of power and solidarity, etc.) are analysed as conversational strategies that foreground the relationship among these characters and their attitude towards their own and the other’s ethnicity and home country. Aaron Rodgers Cal Jerseys The analysis of these strategies reveal an unusual result: the reversal of ethnic roles which – as a technique of character treatment – proves Shaw to be well-ahead his age, at the same time constructing and subverting ethnic stereotypes.
