Syntax - Semantics Interface
Eva Hajicova (Author)
Syntax-Semantics Interface is a collection of papers written by leading Czech linguist Eva Haji??ova between 1973 and 2014 that draw on the theoretical framework of the functional generative description proposed by Petr Sgall in the early 1960s and developed since. The book reflects Haji??ova's research contributions to four main domains: the specification of underlying (deep) sentence structure (analyzed in terms of dependency relations); the information structure of the sentence (topic-focus articulation) and its relation to the specification of presupposition and negation and to other related phenomena; the building of a scheme for an annotated corpus of Czech to serve, among other things, in the verification of theoretical linguistic claims; and some fundamental aspects of discourse structure, namely the concept of the hierarchy of elements in the stock of knowledge shared by speaker and hearer. Through new introductory statements, Haji??ova also compares her original findings with current state-of-the-art of linguistic theory at home and abroad.
