The principal focus is on binominal copular clauses (clauses where both the subject and the predicate are NPs/DPs). The chapter goes through the four types of copular clauses in the typology due to Higgins (, )—predicational, specificational, equational, and identificational—and for each type presents some of the main findings from.   Not all scholars accept even this allowance, that post-biblical Hebrew developed the copular use of the pronoun. In his study of the BH “tripartite nominal clause” Muroaka denies the shift to copular status in any stage of Hebrew, even in modern Israeli: “I doubt that one can prove the existence of the copula in any Semitic language.

  This article presents new data from a number of Germanic languages concerning the agreement patterns found in copular clauses that contain two nominais; in both clauses with specificational readings (such as The problem is your parents) and those with what are here termed readings of assumed identity (such as If I were you or In my dream I was you).Cited by: The Grammar Book Many of the world’s languages form yes/no questions simply by adding rising intonation to declarative statements. English speakers do this, too (see type 2), but the unmarked form of an English yes/no question, like (1), requires rising intonation and a different word order from a statement—one that inverts the subject and the operator.

The principal use of a copula is to link the subject of a clause to the predicate. A copular verb is often considered to be part of the predicate, the remainder being called a predicative expression. A simple clause containing a copula is illustrated below: The book is on the table.

Part 1 discusses copular clauses in English, whereas Part 2 critically analyzes existing proposals on copular constructions in Polish and puts forward a novel analysis for these structures.

This simple linear division of labor has the advantage of providing the reader with an overview of research that is fuller than what the author needs for her analysis of Polish. introduced$to$the$taxonomy$of$copular$constructions$in$English$basedonHiggins() andtoproposalsinMikkelsen(,),$whoseworkwillresonatethroughouttherestFile Size: KB.

Copular verbs are complemented by a subject predicative in a sentence or clause structure. A copular prepositional verb is a prepositional verb (the combination of a verb plus preposition) that is complemented by a subject : Richard Nordquist.

The book under review here, Copular clauses in English and Polish: Structure, derivation, and interpretation by Anna Bondaruk, is an interesting contribution to this already vibrant field of research. Her work has two aims: to provide a clear and state-of-the-art overview of existing proposals on a whole variety of copular constructions and to.

There is a huge literature on the study of copular clauses in books and journal articles including major works by Verhaar (), Declerck (), Hengeveld (), Stassen (), and Pustet (). This book argues for an inversion approach to specificational copular clauses, focusing on Danish and English but, in doing so, also provides a very lucid overview of the types or copular clauses, the relationship between them, and the factors responsible for inversion around the copula.

Transitive copular 5/5(1). Mikkelsen's account of copular clauses is simply elegant. She is so thorough in her treatment of these copular constructions that in our discussion of her analysis in a recent MIT seminar there wasn't any comment that wasn't already anticipated in her own caveats and footnotes.

This book is a comprehensive description of the grammar of Rapa Nui, the Polynesian language spoken on Easter Island. After an introductory chapter, the grammar deals with phonology, word classes, the noun phrase, possession, the verb phrase, verbal and nonverbal clauses, mood and negation, and clause combinations.

The phonology of Rapa Nui reveals certain issues of typological interest, such.Criterial freezing in small clauses and the cartography of copular constructions UR SHLONSKY & LUIGI RIZZI Abstract Criterial freezing is a particular instance of freezing arising in criterial configurations, i.e., in configurations dedicated to the expression of scope-discourse properties.
