This monograph is one of the studies on English verb syntax, especially focusing on its changes in Old and Middle English periods. Verbs of motion are ordinary words, for which cognates can be found among Germanic languages, but the choice of words as renderings of the Latin verbs can be different. Verbs of motion are ordinary words, for which cognates can be found among Germanic languages, but the choice of words as renderings of the Latin verbs can be different. She focuses on the loss of the impersonal construction as a consequence of a redefinition of the grammatical categories of subject and object, and describes the diachronic development of impersonal verbs as a result of the complex interaction of verbal and constructional meaning.
This piece of work presents various aspects of the verbs which, basically denoting coming and going, have shown diachronic changes morphologically, semantically and syntactically. Journal folia linguistica historica — de Gruyter Published: Dec 1, 2005. Appendices are added to illustrate the variant forms of these words and expressions in the versions of the Gospels and the Psalter, together with formulaic expressions of emotion in Old English poetry. We can therefore make reasonable generalizations about when impersonal usage was licensed in these verbs. Comparisons are drawn between Old and present-day English and also with other related languages such as Dutch, German, and French. The study further investigates whether support verb constructions may be employed to create periphrastic verbal expressions to denote concepts for which no simple verb exists in the language at that stage.
The editors of the present volume would like to stress that the entirety of the history of English is intertwined with variations of English in the present day. Following a relational approach, according to which single elements only get an explicit and distinct meaning in connection to other elements, the contribution first. All books are in clear copy here, and all files are secure so don't worry about it. Comparison with Verbs of Motion in Other Germanic Languages. Huber demonstrates how several non-motion verbs receive contextual motion meanings through their use in the intransitive motion construction. The contributors to the volume have joined in the discussion of Slavic motion talk from diachronic, typological, comparative, cognitive, and acquisitional perspectives with a particular focus on verbs of motion, the nuclei of the lexicalization patterns for encoding motion. This piece of work presents various aspects of the verbs which, basically denoting coming and going, have shown diachronic changes morphologically, semantically and syntactically.
Huber further investigates how in the intertypological contact with medieval French, a range of French path verbs entrer, issir, descendre, etc. This careful analysis of the correlation between Middle English verbs of emotion and use or non-use in impersonal constructions represents a new empirical and theoretical contribution to the busy research area of impersonal constructions in the history of English. She also draws on categorizations in the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary and harnesses the online Middle English Dictionary in a novel way, demonstrating that dictionary materials are in fact a valuable tool in the study of early English syntax and semantics. This volume contains ten original papers focusing specifically on the variation and change of motion event encoding in individual languages and language families. With Dative of Person; Chapter V: Verbs with Preposed or Postposed Elements; 1.
Verbs of motion are ordinary words, for which cognates can be found among Germanic languages, but the choice of words as renderings of the Latin verbs can be different. The papers all reflect or elaborate on his work, which shows how lexicon, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics interact in giving constructions their individual holistic characters as basic units of grammar. Gewitan + Infinitive and Witan + Infinitive; 4. Gewitan + Infinitive and Witan + Infinitive; 4. Miura utilizes modern linguistic approaches, including theories and methodologies adopted in the study of psych-verbs in modern languages, which bear close relevance to impersonal verbs of emotion but have traditionally been researched separately.
It determines in how far these constructions can be seen as a means to offer semantic specification of existing verbal expressions. Planned running time: June 2017 to summer 2018. Verbs of Motion Unexpressed -- Ch. The volume thus contributes to a more detailed and fine-grained foundation for the investigation of conceptual causes and consequences of different motion-event encoding strategies. Verbs Denoting 'To Turn'; 4.
Möhlig-Falke offers a detailed analysis of impersonal verbs within the framework of cognitive and constructional grammar. Due to the multiplicity of approaches to the linguistic analysis the collection offers, it will suitably complement courses and programs of study focusing on Slavic linguistics as well as typology, diachronic and comparative linguistics, semantics, and second language acquisition. A contrastive survey of the basic semantic and syntactic characteristics of verb-particle constructions in the present-day Germanic languages shows that the English construction is structurally unremarkable and its analysis as a periphrastic word-formation is proposed. The movement in which Construction Grammar, as developed by Charles Fillmore and Paul Kay, has played a significant role, has arisen in part as a response to the Chomskyan modular approach, which treats grammatical constructions as epiphenomenal, dismantling their component features and attributing these to general principles of grammar. Bound Morphemes as Prefixes; 4.
Through a careful study of the behaviour of impersonal and near-synonymous non-impersonal verbs, she identifies the factors that determined the presence, absence, and spread of impersonal usage with the verbs concerned. Huber explains how these verbs were initially borrowed not for expressing general literal motion, but in more specific, often metaphorical and abstract contexts. Bound Morphemes as Prefixes; 4. We try to determinate in this article the reasons for which the shrine of Sant Miquel de Lliria, one of the most important of the current province of Valencia, was consecrated to the war-like archangel. Verbs with Prepositional Phrases; 5.
Author by : Peter S. Offering a unique study of Old English in context, it combines a wide variety of short texts with an up-to-date assessment of the forms of language that remain as the foundation of English today. The impersonal construction has been a topic of extensive research for over a hundred years. From a cross-linguistic and comparative perspective the Old English prefix verbs are identified as preverbs and the shift towards postposition of the particles is connected to the development of more general patterns of word order. Her study is a diachronic contribution to the typology of motion encoding, and advances research on the process of borrowing and loanword integration. In addition, she analyzes which verbs and structures are employed most frequently in talking about motion in select Old and Middle English texts, demonstrating that while satellite-framing is stable, the extent of manner-conflation is influenced by text type and style.
Few studies have been made on Old English verbs of motion after Weman 1933. Thus requiring methodological pluralism, the English adjective is somewhat typical of present-day English grammar in general, which, conditioned by the mixture of Germanic and Romance elements, has settled some chapters of grammar in a hybrid way. Contributors include: Rosamund Allen, Janet M. Director: Manfred Markus; assistants: Mag. This monograph is a study of words and expressions of emotion found in Old and Middle English texts. Comparison with Verbs of Motion in Other Germanic Languages; 3. The approach of the study is both qualitative and quantitative.
