Bringing jointly diachronic learn from numerous views, significantly typology, formal syntax and semantics, this quantity makes a speciality of the interaction of syntactic and semantic elements in language switch - a subject up to now mostly missed either in (mostly lexical) old semantics in addition to old syntax, yet lately introduced into concentration by means of grammaticalization conception in addition to Minimalist diachronic syntax. The contributions draw on information from quite a few Indo-European languages together with Vedic Sanskrit, heart Indic, Greek in addition to English and German, and speak about various phenomena reminiscent of switch in negation markers, indefinite articles, quantifiers, modal verbs, argument constitution between others. The papers study diachronic facts within the gentle of up to date syntactic and semantic thought, addressing the the most important query of ways syntactic and semantic swap are associated, and even if either are ruled through comparable constraints, rules and systematic mechanisms. the amount will attract students in old linguistics and formal theories of syntax and semantics.

Bringing jointly diachronic examine from a number of views, particularly typology, formal syntax and semantics, this quantity makes a speciality of the interaction of syntactic and semantic components in language switch - a topic thus far mostly missed either in (mostly lexical) ancient semantics in addition to historic syntax, yet lately introduced into concentration through grammaticalization thought in addition to Minimalist diachronic syntax.
Non c'è lingua e non c'è epoca in cui non si sia giocato con le parole: troviamo giochi di parole nei testi più solenni di religioni, letterature, filosofie. Sono una dimensione comune a tutti: dagli analfabeti ai premi Nobel.
