    THE SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS OF ENGLISH RELATIVE CLAUSES James D. McCAWLEY Rcceiccd J une An analysis of English restrictive relative clauses is developed that accounts for many of the differences between them and three other clause types having the same internal structure, namely nonrestrictive relative clauses, cleft clauses, and ‘pscudo- File Size: 4MB.   On the Semantics of Wh-Clauses.

In order to define the semantics of the Action Clause a small kernel of the semantic domain of every UML model needs to be by:

    Book Description. First published in , this book is concerned with certain kinds of wh-clauses, whose interpretations are easily and, the author argues, plausibly rendered by a logicosemantic analysis on which wh-phrases translate as open sentences, that is, as expressions of the semantically interpreted representation which contain free variables. The semantics of clause linking in Manambu. By Alexandra Y. Aikhenvald. Abstract. Linking clauses in Manambu involves a variety of means, including clause chaining, speech reports, conjoined dependent clauses, nominalizations, connectives, and apposition.

Polysemous clause linking devices—especially those which involve apposition—are discussed in §§4, we turn to the categories of Focal and Supporting clause and their role in determining the semantics of clause linking.

Further non-clause linking functions of clause linkers are addressed in §5. This paper presents a detailed description of clause linking in Japhug, based on a corpus of traditional narratives and conversations.

It follows the methodology used in Dixon and Aikhenvald’s () collective book on this topic, to ease crosslinguistic comparisons. Although Japhug has a very rich system of converbs, there is not a single meaning that requires a non-finite form: all.

Linking clauses in Manambu involves a variety of means, including clause chaining, speech reports, conjoined dependent clauses, nominalizations, connectives, and apposition. Many clause linking techniques are polysemous; and some can be disambiguated if necessary.

Part II deals with strategies relating to clause-chaining, conjunctive conjugations, converbial constructions, masdars.
