The growing interest in prepositions is reflected by this impressive collection of papers from leading scholars of various fields. The selected contributions of <i>Prepositions in their Syntactic, Semantic and Pragmatic Context</i> focus on the local and temporal semantics of prepositions in relation to their context, too. Following an introduction which puts this new approach into a thematical and historical perspective, the volume presents fifteen studies in the following areas: The semantics of space dynamics (mainly on French prepositions); Language acquisition (aphasia and code-switching); Artificial intelligence (mainly of English prepositions); Specific languages: Hebrew (from a number of perspectives — syntax, semiotics, and sociolinguistic impact on morphology), Maltese, the Melanesian English-based Creole Bislama, and Biblical translations into Judeo-Greek.

Subjects: Semantics; Syntax; Pragmatics
