THE CROSS-CULTURAL STUDY OF SEMANTIC STRUCTURE. FINAL REPORT.
BURLING, ROBBINS; FRIEDRICH, PAUL
SEVERAL EXPLORATIONS WERE MADE INTO THE STRUCTURE OF MEANING IN BURMESE AND RUSSIAN. VARIOUS KINDS OF LINGUISTIC INFORMATION WERE ISOLATED BY TEXTUAL STUDY AND INTERVIEWS WITH NATIVE SPEAKERS. DISCUSSION COVERED SUCH THEORETICAL QUESTIONS AS (1) SYNCHRONY AND DIACHRONY, (2) SEMANTICS AND GRAMMAR, (3) SEMANTICS AND SOCIAL STRUCTURE, (4) SEMANTICS AND COGNITION, (5) COGNITION AND AFFECT (DENOTATION AND CONNOTATION), (6) FORMS ALTERNATIVE ANALYSES, (7) RELATIVE PRODUCT ANALYSIS, (8) DISCOVERY PROCEDURES, AND (9) APPLICABILITY TO AREAS OTHER THAN KINSHIP. THE AUTHORS CRITICIZED EACH OTHER'S PAPERS FROM CONTRASTING IF COMPLEMENTARY POINTS OF VIEW. ONE WORK WAS CONSISTENTLY CONCERNED WITH DETAILS OF RUSSIAN LIFE, WHILE THE OTHER WAS MORE TOWARD LOGICAL AND FORMAL PROBLEMS. (RS)
