the syntax-semantic interface: evidence from the Spanish present tense. Major Professor: Alejandro Cuza-Blanco. The current study examines the acquisition of the semantic values of the Spanish present tense among English-speaking second language learners and Spanish heritage speakers. Language Acquisition at the Interfaces Proceedings of GALA Editor(s): Jiyoung Choi, Hamida Demirdache, Oana Lungu. Contributors: Rita Nazare Santos, Barbara Zurer Pearson, Carolina Silva, Michael Clauss, Maria Teresa Guasti, Hitoyuki Shimada, Rita Nazare Santos, Barbara Zurer Pearson, Carolina Silva, Michael Clauss, Maria Teresa Guasti.

Her research focuses on lexical semantics, the syntax–semantics interface and computational linguistics. She is one of the developers of WordNet, a large lexical database that serves as a resource for computational linguistics and many natural language processing applications. This introduction to and overview of the "glue" approach is the first book to bring together the research of the major contributors to the field. A new, deductive approach to the syntax-semantics interface integrates two mature and successful lines of research: logical deduction for semantic composition and the Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG) approach to the analysis of linguistic structure.

Lexical semantics (also known as lexicosemantics), is a subfield of linguistic units of analysis in lexical semantics are lexical units which include not only words but also sub-words or sub-units such as affixes and even compound words and phrases. Lexical units include the catalogue of words in a language, the l semantics looks at how the meaning of the lexical.

Lexical Acquisition at the Syntax-Semantics Interface: Diathesis Alternations, Subcategorization Frames and Selectional Preferences. Diana McCarthy Summary Verbs frequently permit their arguments to be expressed syntactically in more than one way.

Such verbs are said to exhibit diathesis alternations. These alternations lie at the bridge between syntax. Lexical acquisition at the syntax-semantics interface: diathesis alternations, subcategorization frames and selectional preferences. Lexical Acquisition at the Syntax-Semantics Interface: Diathesis Alternations, Subcategorization Frames and Selectional Preferences.

It discusses the relation between the meaning of argument‐taking predicates and the syntactic environments they are found in. by focusing on verbs as the prototypical argument‐taking predicates, although most points carry over to argument‐taking predicates from other lexical by: 1.

Even though this correlation is frequent, a closer look at the data does not support this intuition beyond its being a statistical tendency.4 While some nouns ending in-o are indeed grammatically always masculine, such as il libro ‘the.M book’, a handful of -o nouns are grammatically always feminine, such as la.

Covering topics Lexical acquisition at the syntax-semantics interface book from infants' initial acquisition of word meaning to the more sophisticated mapping between structure and meaning in the syntax-semantics interface, and the relation between logical content and inferences on language meaning (semantics and pragmatics), the papers in this volume introduce the reader to the variety of ways in Pages: The empirical goal of research on the syntax–semantics interface is to determine the extent to which the meaning of an expression depends on its syntactic properties and the extent to which its syntactic properties are a function of its by: Acquisition of lexical knowledge is a crucial component of building natural language process-ing applications.

The requirements for lexical knowledge differ across different applications. Some of them require only a small amount of information. For example, a lexicon supporting a spelling checker. Since the appearance of verbs implies the mastery of a mapping procedure between syntactic positions and semantic roles, the syntactic regularities found for each lexical verb class suggest that the relation at the syntax-semantics interface is well-established early on.

In the recent literature, two uniform treatments of agreement have been proposed, both locating agreement at the syntax-semantics interface: the account of Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG; Polland and Sag ), and the lexicon-based account (Wunderlich ).
