Building Meaning In Context: A Dynamic Approach To Bantu Clause Structure

by Hannah Gibson

Building Meaning in Context: A Dynamic Approach to Bantu Clause Structure uses the tools of the Dynamic Syntax framework to explore morphosyntactic phenomena in a number of Bantu languages. Examines word order alternations, inversion constructions and negation in Bantu, showing the incremental nature of the build-up of meaning in context Highlights cross-linguistic parallels, drawing on data from Japanese, Korean, Romance languages and varieties of Greek Offers a radical new perspective on the nature of human language, showing the centrality of the concepts of underspecification and update which lie at the heart of the DS structure building process An innovative analysis with a broad empirical coverage
