Preferred Argument Structure: Grammar as Architecture for Function

John W. Du Bois, "Preferred Argument Structure: Grammar as Architecture for Function"
Benjamins, John Publishing Company | 2003 | ISBN: 9027226245 | 454 pages | PDF | 1,7 MB

Studies in Discourse and Grammar is a monograph series providing a forum for
research on grammar as it emerges from and is accounted for by discourse
contexts. The assumption underlying the series is that corpora reflecting
language as it is actually used are necessary, not only for the verification of
grammatical analyses, but also for understanding how the regularities we think
of as grammar emerge from communicative needs.
Research in discourse and grammar draws upon both spoken and written
corpora, and it is typically, though not necessarily, quantitative.Monographs in
the series propose explanations for grammatical regularities in terms of recurrent
discourse patterns, which reflect communicative needs, both informational
and socio-cultural.
