    A new theory of the syntax-semantics interface that relies on hierarchical orderings in language, with the English auxiliary system as its empirical ground. Research in syntax has found that there is a hierarchical ordering of projections within the verb phrase across languages (although researchers differ with respect to how fine grained they assume the hierarchy to be). This chapter presents a discussion on the syntax-semantics interface. The task of a theory of semantic interpretation is to characterize how elements in a syntactic string semantically relate to one another. Clearly, this depends on how one conceptualizes the meaning of the elementary building blocks-that is, the terminal nodes of a syntactic by:

Language is a system of communication in which grammatical structures function to express meaning in context. While all languages can achieve the same basic communicative ends, they each use different means to achieve them, particularly in the divergent ways that syntax, semantics and pragmatics interact across languages.

robert d. van valin jr. is Professor of Linguistics at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, and is the primary developer of the framework of Role and Reference Grammar. He is co-author of Func. Interrogative Phrases and the Syntax-Semantics Interface starts by analyzing the interpretation of interrogative phrases in single and multiple constituent questions, including their interpretation under adverbs of quantification.

The results are then put to work in a novel approach to some of the constraints on dependencies between fronted interrogative phrases and the associated gaps. Syntax-Semantics Interface is a collection of papers written by leading Czech linguist Eva Hajičová between and that draw on the theoretical framework of the functional generative description proposed by Petr Sgall in the early s and developed since.

The book reflects Hajičová’s research contributions to four main domains: the specification of underlying (deep) sentence. The theory of the syntax-semantics interface has to explain which aspects of structure and interpretation are related and how this relationship comes about.

This is usually done by stating what the representation of an utterance at the interface is and postulating conditions this representation is subject to.

This book is essential reading for postgraduates and researchers in language education, linguistics, applied linguistics, speech-language pathology and psychology. The clarification of Chinese as L1 is also of interest to language educators in multilingual contexts.

Semantics of Chinese Questions is the first major study of Chinese questions, especially wh-questions, within the framework of Alternative Semantics. It takes an interface approach to study the syntax, semantics, and phonology of questions and proposes a phonological scope-marking strategy in Chinese questions, based upon experimental data.
