'Butler and Mathieu argue persuasively that many apparently far-flung

constructions belong together under the rubric of 'split construction'.

Their generalizations are provocative and well-supported, and the theory

is firmly grounded in Predicate Logic with Barriers, a dynamic logic that

provides a fresh perspective on ideas and generalizations that have been,

and continue to be, central to syntactic and semantic theory.' - Christopher Potts, Department of Linguistics, University of Massachusetts

Klappentext

Split constructions are widespread in natural languages. The separation of the semantic restriction of a quantifier from that quantifier is a typical example of such a construction. This study addresses the problem that such discontinuous strings exhibit--namely, a number of locality constraints, including intervention effects. These are shown to follow from the interaction of a minimalist syntax with a semantics that directly assigns a model-theoretic interpretation to syntactic logical forms. The approach is shown to have wide empirical coverage and a conceptual simplicity. The book will be of interest to scholars and advanced students of syntax and semantics.

Zusammenfassung
These are shown to follow from the interaction of a minimalist syntax with a semantics that directly assigns a model-theoretic interpretation to syntactic logical forms. The book will be of interest to scholars and advanced students of syntax and semantics.
