Language as a subject


This volume discusses how language expresses conceptual information on event structures and the reconstruction of such information in the interpretation process. Important new insights into current semantic and syntactic research on the topic are presented, and the topic is addressed not only on the basis of English and German but also on the basis of other languages such as Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Indonesian, Japanese, and Igbo.
