This volume collects leading-edge work on the semantics and pragmatics of natural language, including contributions from Eve Clark, Paul Kiparsky, Stanley Peters, Dag Westerstahl and Arnold M. Zwicky. The research covers a number of languages - English, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean and Quechua - and phenomena, including adverbial modification, classifiers, constructional meaning, control phenomena, evidentiality, events semantics, focus, presupposition, and quantification. This is a valuable volume for anyone interested in the latest developments in the study of meaning.
