This book presents a generative analysis of Czech nominal phrases (with determiners and adjectives). It uses previous studies as well as original paradigms and corpus data. The study analyses the feature content of nouns and their agreements with pronominals, coordinates and quantifiers, arguing that nominal agreement is a superimposed dual system.

The contributions in this volume (first published as a Special Issue of International Journal of Corpus Linguistics 6 (2001)) evolved from the EU-funded project Trans-European Language Resources Infrastructure (TELRI) and deal with various aspects of multilingual corpus linguistics. The topics reach from building parallel corpora over annotation issues and questions concerning terminology extraction to bilingual and multilingual lexicography; the statistical properties of parallel corpora and the practice of translators; and the role of corpus linguistics for multilingual language technology.

This book examines the interplay between the semantics of noun phrases and verbal predicates, with an emphasis on data drawn from Czech and English, and comparisons to German and Finnish. The primary focus is on shifts in readings assigned to verbal predicates between event-readings and process-readings, often called 'aspect shift' or 'coercion', and how these shifts are related to the semantics of constituent noun phrases. The book examines quantificational and definite interpretations of determinerless noun phrases in Czech that are induced by the semantics of grammatical aspect (perfective and imperfective), and by semantic properties of verbal affixes.Three main these are defended in this book. The first is that grammatical aspect and eventuality types (state, event, and process) are related in so far as some of their semantic properties can be modeled in terms of mereological 'part-of' relation (her, as a complete join semilattice), and this is what accounts for their systematic interactions. A second thesis is that the thematic structure of verbs governs the seemingly disparate ways in which the interactions between verbal predicates and nominal arguments are manifested. And third, we can provide a unified analysis for the various interactions between verbal predicates and nominal arguments within a constraint-based (or unification-based) approach to natural language description. The book also gives a detailed analysis of certain verbal affixes (chiefly prefixes) in Slavic languages, arguing that they have the semantic properties of quantifiers, with the variable (event or individual) they bind also determined by the thematic structure of verbs.This book will be of interestto a wide range of linguists concerned with aspect and how it interacts with lexical semantics, morphology, syntax and quantification.

Dušková is one of the eminent Czech linguists specialising in the English language. This book presents the results of long lasting research of English grammar, syntax and hyper syntax. The verb and possessive determinants are treated in the first volume, while syntax, complex and compound sentences and hyper syntax are analysed in the second volume. Dušková follows on from the most eminent Czech linguists like Vilém Mathesius, Bohumil Trnka and Josef Trnka. Dušková's work is based on structuralism and confrontation methodology.
