Toward a Construction-Based Theory of Language Function: The Case of Nominal Extraposition.
Michaelis, Laura A.; Lambrecht, Knud
Language, v72 n2 p215-47 Jun 1996
Using a particular sentence type--an exclamative construction referred to as "Nominal Extraposition" (NE)--this article outlines a formal model in which grammatical description includes the description of use conditions on form-meaning pairs. The article suggests that the relationship between NE and like exclamatives can be represented in an "Inheritance Network." (40 references) (Author/CK)
