This monograph conducts a syntactic research of Tuki, a Bantu language spoken in Cameroon, from a cartographic standpoint. the subsequent domain names are meticulously explored: The Complementizer area, the Inflectional area and the Verbal area. This learn finds that there's a relative word (RelP) positioned among ForceP and FocP. furthermore, a close research of an articulated IP presents the order of clausal practical heads that happen aspectual morphology, that's theoretically heavily concerning concerns in adverbial syntax. also, the language lower than examine unveils a really wealthy structural make up of DP and the skin note orders attested during this word should be accounted for by way of snowballing circulate operations alongside the traces formerly sketched within the structure of the cut up DP speculation. total, this cartographic research is sure to counterpoint our morphosyntactic wisdom of UG clausal structure through demonstrating that its wealthy underlying structural skeleton is correlated by way of a prosperous floor structural and sensible map.

The publication explores finely-grained differences in causal that means, as a rule from a relevance-theoretic standpoint. to extend the problem of this double activity, i.e. a radical in addition to passable account of reason and an in depth overview of the theoretical version hired to this finish, the present research contains an research conducted in terms of contrasting the prototypical causal exponents of contemporary Greek subordination, i.e. epeiδi and γiati. furthermore, this aim is accomplished within the methodological framework of contrasting various contextual purposes of the 2 connectives opposed to their translated types in English, realizable through because. regardless of first impressions, a more in-depth remark of the big variety of functions of those markers within the discourse of coherence kin illustrates divergences of their distribution, which, in flip, are taken to spotlight differing features of causal interpretation. The notion for the relevance-theoretic version emanates from a response to an array of difficulties undermining conventional tenets of pragmatic concept originating with Grice’s stance, yet can also be made in accordance with the typical perform in pragmatic examine (since its starting place) to pay low regard for the contribution of usual causal markers to debates aiming on the choice of the excellence that has been instrumental to problems with cognition and pragmatic interpretation, i.e. propositional vs. non-propositional that means.

This monograph offers an experimental and theoretical inquiry into the position of sentential shape and version within the prosodic constitution of Catalan. The empirical part examines intonational phraseology throughout sentence types, together with SVO constructions with both nominal or sentential gadgets and constructions regarding clitic left- and right-dislocations. the implications express version in phraseology that depends upon syntactic elements and non-syntactic components akin to topic-hood and prosodic binarity. The theoretical part makes use of Stochastic Optimality conception to version the difference and frequency distributions linked to the saw prosodic styles. a number of syntactic and non-syntactic elements are represented by means of alignment constraints, which play a huge position in Catalan, and by means of constraints that restrict measurement and people who restrict the general quantity of prosodic constitution. This research represents a mixed method of prosody and syntax and is of specific relevance for theoretical and empirical linguists drawn to the connection among those domain names either in Catalan and different languages.
