Dative constructions in Romance and beyond

Anna Pine­da & Jaume Mateu (Hrsg.) |

This book offers a com­pre­hen­sive account of dative struc­tures across lan­guages –with an impor­tant, though not exclu­sive, focus on the Romance fam­i­ly. As is well-known, datives play a cen­tral role in a vari­ety of struc­tures, rang­ing from ditran­si­tive con­struc­tions to cliti­ciza­tion of indi­rect objects and dif­fer­en­tial­ly marked direct objects, and includ­ing also psy­cho­log­i­cal pred­i­cates, pos­ses­sor or causative con­struc­tions, among many oth­ers. As inter­est in all these top­ics has increased sig­nif­i­cant­ly over the past three decades, this vol­ume pro­vides an over­due update on the state of the art. Accord­ing­ly, the chap­ters in this vol­ume account for both wide­ly dis­cussed pat­terns of dative con­struc­tions as well as those that are rel­a­tive­ly unknown.

Zur Rei­he „Open Romance Lin­guis­tics“ in der Lan­guage Sci­ence Press gibt es auch einen Blog-Post vom FID Roman­is­tik.

This book presents a range of ongo­ing stud­ies on atyp­i­cal lan­guage devel­op­ment in Romance lan­guages. Despite the steady increase in the num­ber of stud­ies on typ­i­cal lan­guage devel­op­ment, there is still lit­tle research about atyp­i­cal lan­guage devel­op­ment, espe­cial­ly in Romance lan­guages. This book cov­ers four main con­di­tions caus­ing atyp­i­cal lan­guage devel­op­ment. Part I explores the lin­guis­tic and com­mu­nica­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics of preterm chil­dren learn­ing Romance lan­guages. The focus of Part II cen­ters on chil­dren with Spe­cif­ic Lan­guage Impair­ment. Hear­ing Loss in Part III is anoth­er rel­e­vant fac­tor lead­ing to atyp­i­cal lan­guage devel­op­ment. The final part IV zeroes in on genet­ic syn­dromes cou­pled to cog­ni­tive impair­ment with spe­cial atten­tion to lan­guage devel­op­ment. This book presents a much need­ed overview of the most recent find­ings in all rel­e­vant fields deal­ing with atyp­i­cal lan­guage devel­op­ment in chil­dren speak­ing Romance lan­guages.

Gender mismatches in partitive constructions in French and German: How society shapes language

Thom West­veer |

Par­ti­tive con­struc­tions involv­ing human ref­er­ents (e.g. one of the stu­dents) may give rise to gen­der agree­ment mis­match­es between set and sub­set in some lan­guages. Native speak­ers have intu­itions about whether such mis­match­es are accept­able or not. Gen­der mis­match­es in par­ti­tive con­struc­tions have not received much atten­tion in the lit­er­a­ture yet, but are par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ing in the light of the ongo­ing dis­cus­sions on gen­der equal lan­guage, which chal­lenge the exist­ing gen­der sys­tems in many lan­guages. This dis­ser­ta­tion inves­ti­gates which fac­tors influ­ence the accep­tance of gen­der mis­match­es by speak­ers of French and Ger­man and dis­cuss­es those fac­tors in the light of the ongo­ing dis­cus­sions on gen­der equal lan­guage. Fur­ther­more, it pro­pos­es a nov­el the­o­ret­i­cal expla­na­tion for the observed facts with­in the frame­work of Gen­er­a­tive Gram­mar. As such, this dis­ser­ta­tion does not only give insight into an under­stud­ied phe­nom­e­non, gen­der agree­ment in par­ti­tive con­struc­tions, but also con­tributes to our under­stand­ing of how social fac­tors may influ­ence lan­guage and even­tu­al­ly could cause lan­guage change.
