The article ‘From the VVingPP construction to the VVing pattern: A descriptive account,’ jointly written by Cristiano Broccias and myself will be published in the July issue of the academic journal Lingue e Linguaggi. It is possible to download a draft of the paper.
I will review Peter Lasersohn’s book ‘Subjectivity and perspective in truth-theoretic semantics’ for The LINGUIST List. Since I am interested in the study of truth-conditional semantics and its comparison with alternative frameworks (e.g., cognitive semantics), I am looking forward to receiving this book. I will post the link to the review as soon as it is published. Stay tuned!
Next June 20-22, Professor Cristiano Broccias and I will be jointly presenting a paper at the 9th International Conference on Historical Lexicology and Lexicography (ICHLL9), which will take place in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy. Our presentation will be entitled ‘On the relationship between V and Ving in the English VVingPP pattern: A historical perspective.’ Stay tuned for more news!
My new paper, entitled ‘Concerning the radial network view of argument structure: The case of the English caused-motion pattern,’ has recently been accepted for publication in the academic journal Language Sciences. As soon as it is published, I will post the abstract and a link to the paper. Stay tuned!
Download the poster I presented at the AMLaP 2017 conference, along with the abstract! Although my presentation was much more theoretically-oriented than the vast majority of the other contributions, some colleagues showed interest in my work. It was stimulating to exchange ideas with more empirically-minded scholars on our respective research topics (special thanks to Dr. Hiroshi Nakanishi for also taking the picture).
The 23rd AMLaP Conference – Architectures and Mechanisms of Language Processing is kicking off at Lancaster University on Thursday, September 7, 2017. Download the conference program on the AMLaP2017 website. On Saturday 9, I will present a poster entitled ‘Concerning the notion of constructional polysemy.’ I will upload both the abstract and the poster shortly after the conference. Stay tuned! 😉
I have been selected to review Elisa Mattiello’s new book ‘Analogy in word-formation: A study of English neologisms and occasionalisms’ for The LINGUIST List. Since I am currently working on the role of analogy in languages (with particular reference to English), I am looking forward to carrying out this ‘task.’ I will post the review in the next few months, as soon as it is published. Stay tuned!
