Aspectual grammar and past-time reference by Laura A Michaelis( )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 2,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study presents a semantic framework for analysing all aspectual constructions in terms of the event state distinction, and describes the grammatical expression of aspectual meaning in terms of a theory of grammatical constructions. In this theory, grammatical constructions, like words, are conventionalized form-meaning pairs, which are best described not only with respect to their intrinsic semantic values, but also with respect to the functional oppositions in which they participate

Toward a grammar of aspect : the case of the English perfect construction by Laura A Michaelis( )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study addresses two interrelated questions: what is the nature of aspectual meaning, and what are the grammatical realizations of aspectual meaning in English? These questions are addressed in part through an examination of the English perfect construction (e.g., The Eagle has landed). In chapter one, I outline a tripartite model of the English aspectual system, consisting of grammatical aspect, situation aspect and phasal aspect. The perfect is depicted as an exponent of phasal aspect. Phasal aspect, according to Coseriu (1976), indicates a relationship between a reference time and "the degree of development of the verbal process under consideration". Exponents of phasal aspect encode a situation type distinct from the Aktionsart of the VP-complement denotatum. I demonstrate that the perfect construction denotes a stative situation: a state of 'aftermath' following the event expressed by the VP complement. Chapter one establishes a formal semantic model for representing phasal aspect
Syntactic constructions in English by Jong-Bok Kim( Book )

"1.1 Linguistic and syntactic competence We language users believe that we 'know' a language, but the question is what we know when we know a language like English or Korean. It may mean that we know how to create natural English sentences like (1a), but not unnatural sentences like (1b).1 (1) a. We can't pay for health care benefits like this, but you can. b. *We can't keep paying for health care benefits like this, but you can keep.2 In the same way, speakers who know English may accept (2a) and (2c), but not (2b):3 (2) a. Frank sneezed. b. *Frank sneezed the napkin. c. Frank sneezed the napkin off the table. This implies that knowing a language means that (English) speakers have linguistic knowledge sufficient to distinguish between 'acceptable' and 'unacceptable' sentences. However, when speakers are asked to articulate what kind of knowledge allows them to make these distinctions, it is not easy for them to describe it. This knowledge of language, often called linguistic competence, is the ability to speak a language. Knowing one's native language requires neither skill nor talent, but it is nonetheless an accomplishment worthy of investigation"--

The Class of Indefinites in Vietnamese by Laura A Michaelis( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vietnamese has a group of semantically amorphous indefinite words and phrases whose meanings appear to be refined according to the particular syntactic or pragmatic context in which they are embedded. In appropriate environments, they are the functional equivalents of the English "who, someone, anyone, whoever, everyone." Analysis of the occurrence of these words and phrases in Vietnamese suggests four basic contexts that welcome most or all of these indefinites and refine or elaborate their somewhat vague semantics. These include: (1) content questions; (2) situations in which the indefinite functions as an unidentified constant referent; (3) a broad category defined as "irrealis," which subsumes traditional polarity contexts and environments created by both desideratives and root and epistemic modals; and (4) the nomatterative, a semantic structure associated with a type of conditional construction. In each case, attention must be paid to whether the indefinite represents a constant or variable. The syntactic cues associated with each of these contexts are often not sufficiently reliable to prevent ambiguity about the indefinite's function, so both linguistic and extralinguistic information should be used to define these interpretive contexts. This account of indefinites highlights the range of indefinite functions made possible by their apparent lexical underspecification. (Mse)

Now you see it, now you don't: The influence of lexical class, usage frequency, and constructional context on semantic simulation by Kevin M Gould( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to capture the many effects of the above factors on mental simulation, in this thesis I develop and advocate for a model called sub-event monitoring, wherein the extent to which speakers inspect conceptual structure during simulation directly affects observed simulation results. A high degree of sub-event monitoring is associated with increased processing load and diminished effects of frequency on simulation, while a low degree of sub-event monitoring is associated with decreased processing load and enhanced effects of frequency on simulation. It will be shown that the vast majority of the data gathered in this dissertation can be subsumed within the sub-event monitoring framework, which can in turn be used to generate novel predictions about the effects of the above lexical and pragmatic factors on mental simulation
