Book synopsis

This part of UGE offers a survey of English syntax in 10 chapters. Syntax is mainly seen from a semantic viewpoint, which explains the choice of the various problem areas, viz. Statements, Questions and Directives (M. Snell-Hornby, Zürich), Modality (N.Y. Suzuki, Yokohama), Time and Tense (L.K. Engels et al., Leuven; B. Kortmann, Hannover; R. Dirven, Duisburg), Reference: Determiners (R. Dirven, Duisburg, Richard A. Geiger, Göttingen), Reference: Relatives (W. Block, Hamburg), Semantic Roles (G. Radden, Hamburg) Complementation (I. Horiguchi, Tokyo), Space Prepositions (R. Dirven, Duisburg), Figurative Use of Prepositions (G. Radden, Hamburg) and Adverbials (A. Brisau, Ghent).
