0199219265 New. No marks or damage. Hardcover, 288 pages, Oxford University Press, USA (August 2, 2007). This is the first exhaustive investigation of gradience in syntax,
conceived of as grammatical indeterminacy. It looks at gradience in English word classes, phrases, clauses and constructions, and examines how it may be defined and differentiated. Professor Aarts addresses the tension between linguistic concepts and the continuous phenomena they describe by testing and categorizing grammatical vagueness and indeterminacy. He considers to what extent gradience is a grammatical phenomenon or a by-product of imperfect linguistic description, and makes a series of linked proposals for its theoretical formalization. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
