Advances in Frame Semantics by Mirjam Fried, Kiki Nikiforidou

By Mirjam Fried, Kiki Nikiforidou

This quantity provides a few of the most recent examine in body Semantics, together with paintings in computational lexicography as built in the FrameNet undertaking. utilizing different fabric from English, Italian, and jap, the contributions jointly extend the theoretical, conceptual, and computational equipment of body semantics, via learning more than a few matters pertaining to not just lexical constitution, linked to cognitive frames, but in addition the fewer studied interactional frames and their courting to grammatical association. whereas addressing a few linguistic phenomena, corresponding to verbs of visible conception, metaphoric language, subordinating connectives, paraphrasing, honorifics, definite pragmatic debris, uncomplicated speech acts, and the semantic structuring of felony texts, the analyses additionally spotlight the wider query of integrating frames inside wealthy lexical and grammatical descriptions, even if within the context of lexicon-building assets, types for wisdom illustration, experimental modeling of language acquisition and processing, conceptual metaphor concept, paraphrase study, or the communicative grounding of linguistic constitution.
Originally released in Constructions and Frames Vol. 3:1 (2011) and Vol. 2:2 (2010).

Interaction and Grammar

Many students of language have accredited a view of grammar as a basically delineated and internally coherent constitution that's most sensible understood as a self-contained process. The members to this quantity suggest a truly diverse approach of drawing close and realizing grammar: taking as their start line the placement that the very integrity of grammar is sure up with its position within the greater schemes of the association of human behavior, relatively social interplay, their essays discover a wealthy number of linkages among interplay and grammar.

Portuguese Syntax: New Comparative Studies (Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax)

This quantity is a suite of formerly unpublished articles targeting the subsequent facets of Portuguese syntax: clause constitution, clitic placement, note order version, pronominal method, verb flow, quantification, and distribution of debris. The articles are written in the rules and parameters framework and distinction Portuguese with different Romance languages.

La Grammaire du latin

Sujet traité: Langues Description écriture: Ce Bescherelle comprend quatre events : - écriture et prononciation; - morphologie; - syntaxe; - grammaire de l'énoncé et du texte.

Semantics and morphosyntactic variation : qualities and the grammar of property concepts

This publication explores a key factor in linguistic concept, the systematic version in shape among semantic equivalents throughout languages. contrasting perspectives of the function of lexical that means within the research of such edition are available within the literature: (i) uniformity, wherein lexical which means is common, and edition arises from idiosyncratic adjustments within the stock and phonological form of language-particular useful fabric, and (ii) transparency, wherein systematic edition in shape arises from systematic version within the that means of simple lexical goods.

As a result, we now have a set of annotated sentences for each LU, with detailed information on the FEs realized in each sentence and their syntactic instantiations. Our study of these verbs revealed that the frame ontology for perception in Italian is almost exactly analogous to the one constructed for English. This may seem surprising, since other FrameNet projects, such as Spanish or Japanese FrameNet, have usually evidenced differences with English in many domains. However, a closer look at the structure of the lexical domain of perception in general and at the argument patterns associated with verbs of visual perception in various European languages shows that they are all quite similar in this respect.

In fact, we found that these data provide key information not only for determining what FEs are to be expected in a given syntactic slot with a given LU, but also — in the case of verbs — for describing the LU’s selectional preferences, which can be used to identify the frame it evokes. 2, we believe that both the selectional preferences of LUs belonging to the same frame and the generalizations that can be drawn from these on the “selectional preferences” of the entire frame are essential for defining the semantics of the frame itself and should be integrated, ideally, into the LU and FE definitions inside the FrameNet database.
