Intended for students at both postgraduate and undergraduate level this series aims to provide a broad view of the subject difficult to obtain exclusively from academic journals and monographs. Coverage of this series will be extended to all main aspects of linguistic study, and will include work on major language families, on English and on other important languages. This book adopts a new approach to a major area of syntax - the way in which adjectives work with nouns to construct phrases or sentences. Key Features - Gives a comprehensive account of the semantic grammar of English adjectives and explains why these precisely form the set of adjective constructions are found in English. Uses numerous examples from modern-day language to illustrate theoretical points.
