Vol. 3.2. (July 2015): Grammatical semantics

Dear readers,

True to our initial ambition of theoretical and multilingual openness, the July 3.2 volume of ELIS 2015 presents four articles exploring the field of grammatical semantics through four languages belonging to different families: Chinese, Russian, English and French. And, once again, the contrastive approach is represented, through Daniel Henkel’s article on adjective-determiner interactions in English and French. The other three articles are more specifically about predicates in the broad sense. Thus, the reader will be able to usefully compare Romain Delhem’s article on argumentative schemes in English and Zewen Meng’s on the notion of valence in Chinese, using the example of the grammaticalisation of the verb “to give” in order to construct complements that can be assimilated to dative. Finally, the dative issue is also highlighted in the article that Bastien Poreau devoted to the criteria that govern the choice between two predicates expressing obligation in Russian.

Enjoy your reading!
