The Linguistics of Punctuation / Edition 2by Geoffrey Nunberg
Pub. Date: 09/28/1990
Publisher: Center for the Study of Language and Inf
Challenging approaches that regard punctuation an unsystematic and deficient means for presenting spoken-language intonation, this text's analysis reveals a coherent linguistic subsystem of text-grammar that coexists in writing with the system of lexical grammar that has been the traditional object of linguistic inquiry.
