The Construction of Meaning

David I. Beaver, Luis D. Casillas Martínez, Brady Z. Clark, and Stefan Kaufmann

The Construction of Meaning collects leading-edge work on the semantics and pragmatics of natural language conducted at Stanford University. Contributors include Eve Clark, Paul Kiparsky, Stanley Peters, Dag Westerståhl and Arnold Zwicky. The volume includes research on a number of languages (English, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean and Quechua) and phenomena, including adverbial modification, classifiers, constructional meaning, control phenomena, evidentiality, event semantics, focus, presupposition and quantification. This is an essential volume for anyone interested in the latest developments in the study of meaning.
