Languages across boundaries : studies in memory of Anna Siewierska( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is dedicated to Anna Siewierska, who died, far too young, in 2011. It gathers contributions by the foremost scholars in the field of linguistic typology. They discuss topics that are prominent in Anna's work, taking either a typological or a more language specific perspective. Mindful of Anna's last monograph, Person, the majority of the articles discuss person forms, reference tracking and related issues. Further topics are grammatical alignment, voice, ditransitives, and word order
Impersonal constructions : a cross-linguistic perspective( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers a much needed typological perspective on impersonal constructions, which are here viewed broadly as constructions lacking a referential subject. The contributions to this volume deal with all types of impersonality, namely constructions featuring nonagentive subjects, including those with experiential predicates (A-impersonals), presentational constructions with a notional subject deficient in topicality (T-impersonals), and constructions with a notional subject lacking in referential properties (R-impersonals), i.e. both meteo-constructions and man-constructions. The typological discussion benefits from a good coverage of impersonality in European languages, but also includes considerations of several African, American, South-East Asian, Australian, and Oceanic languages. The variation in the cross-linguistic realization of impersonality and the diachronic pathways leading to and from impersonality documented in this volume point to a novel perspective on impersonals as transitional structures or an intermediate stage of a more basic diachronic change be it from transitive to intransitive, or from active to passive, or participant-to event-centered construction."--Publisher's website

Person by Anna Siewierska( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook deals with the grammatical category of person, which covers the first person, the second person, and the third person. Drawing on data from over 500 languages, Anna Siewierska compares the use of person within and across different languages, and examines the factors underlying this variation. She shows how person forms vary in substance, in the nature of the semantic distinctions they convey, in how they are used in sentences and discourse, and in the way they function to convey social distinctions. By looking at different types of person forms in the grammatical and social contexts in which they are used, this book documents an underlying unity between them, arguing against the treatment of person markers based on arbitrary sets of morphological and syntactic properties. Clearly organized and accessibly written, it will be welcomed by students and scholars of linguistics, particularly those interested in grammatical categories and their use
