Positions and Interpretations (Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [Tilsm] #245) (Hardcover)
The structural and semantic properties of adverbials represent a still poorly understood area of sentential syntax and semantics in Germanic languages. The volume gives a detailed overview of the system of adverbial adjectives in German, linking the different types of adverbial usages to different syntactic positions and providing formal derivations for the different usages. The book is of interest not only to anyone working on the linguistics of German but also to all linguists investigating the syntax-semantics interface.
