Analogy in Grammar: Form and Acquisition by James P. Blevins, Juliette Blevins

By James P. Blevins, Juliette Blevins

During this publication, best researchers in morphology, syntax, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, and computational linguistics deal with primary questions on the shape and acquisition of analogy in grammar. What varieties of styles do audio system decide on because the foundation for analogical extension? What varieties of goods are relatively weak or proof against analogical pressures? At what degrees do analogical procedures function and the way do strategies engage? What formal mechanisms are applicable for modelling analogy? the radical synthesis of typological, theoretical, computational, and developmental paradigms during this quantity brings us toward answering those questions than ever earlier than.

Spielraume der Medialitat: Linguistische Gegenstandskonstitution aus medientheoretischer und pragmatischer Perspektive (Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen) German

In diesem Buch wird die grundlagentheoretische Frage nach dem Untersuchungsobjekt der Sprachwissenschaft mit dem aktuellen Thema „Medien" verbunden. Hierbei geht es insbesondere um den Kompetenzbegriff: Wenn es keine medienunabhäauml;ngige Sprachkompetenz gibt, inwiefern ist die Kompetenz dann trotzdem „frei“?

11. 11, the cells in a lexeme’s paradigm are given on the horizontal axis (where 1 through 12 represent the twelve morphosyntactic property sets corresponding to a verbal paradigm’s twelve cells), and the diVerent possible principal-part analyses are given on the vertical axis. Thus, each row represents a distinct principal-part analysis, and within a given row, the numeral n (any of the numerals 1 through 12) represents the morphosyntactic property set of the sole principal part in the principal-part analysis represented by that row.
