On the Semantics of Focus
Kess, Joseph F.
Anthropological Linguistics, 17, 7, 353-362, Oct 75
This article discusses the semantics of the notion of focus, insofar as it relates to Filipino languages. The evolution of this notion is reviewed, and an alternative explanation of it is given, stressing the fact that grammar and semantics should be kept separate in a discussion of focus. (CLK)
