    Lesley Stirling, Switch-reference and discourse representation. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, PP xv + Reviewed by PETER SELLS, Stanford University This excellent book is concerned with the analysis of switch-reference and, to a much lesser extent, with the phenomenon of logophoricity. The majority of. A Multimodal Analysis of Picture Books for Children goes beyond the relation between the representation of reality and language alone; instead, it aims to analyze the intersemiosis between verbal and visual elements in a sample of nine picture books. The chapters included in this book take the most relevant systemic-functional and visual social semiotic theories a step further from previous.

      Preface This book is about semantics and logic. More specifically, it is about the semantics and logic of natural language; and, even more specifically than that, it is about a particular way of dealing with those subjects, known as Discourse Representation Theory, or DRT/5(1). In contrast to most cultural histories of imperialism, which analyse Orientalist images of rather than by women, Gendering Orientalism focuses on the contributions of women themselves. Drawing on the little-known work of Henriette Browne, other `lost' women Orientlist artists and the literary works of George Eliot, Reina Lewis challenges masculinist assumptions relating to the stability and.

Switch-reference's indication of agreement or disagreement between clauses (or larger discourse units) is shown to function along various parameters contributing to discourse continuity: their major protagonists, spatial and temporal location, and their status as describing actual or non-actual situations.

Discourse Representation Theory, or DRT, is one of a number of theories of dynamic semantics, which have come upon the scene in the course of the past twenty years.

The central concern of these theories is to account for the context dependence of. formalized in the framework of Discourse Representation Theory. Part I of this book discusses the Discourse Modes and lays out the context for the inquiry. Part II presents the linguistic characterization of the modes, emphasizing the differences between them.

Part III discusses subjectivity and surface structure presentation across modes. A discourse representation structure (DRS) is a mental representation built up by the hearer as the discourse unfolds.

A DRS consists of two parts: a universe of so-called “discourse referents”, which represent the objects under discussion, and a set of DRS-conditions which encode the information that has accumulated on these discourse.

In linguistics, switch-reference (SR) describes any clause-level morpheme that signals whether certain prominent arguments in 'adjacent' clauses are most cases, it marks whether the subject of the verb in one clause is coreferent with that of the previous clause, or of a subordinate clause to the matrix (main) clause that is dominating it.

This lively and accessible study of media and discourse combines theoretical reflection with empirical engagement, and brings together insights from a range of disciplines.

Within media and cultural studies, the study of media texts is dominated by an exclusive focus on representation. This book adds long overdue attention to social interaction. Switch reference: an overview This book review seeks to examine three rather kaχa points-prospectively or retrospectively-towards a contextually relevant discourse representation.

In formal linguistics, discourse representation theory (DRT) is a framework for exploring meaning under a formal semantics approach. One of the main differences between DRT-style approaches and traditional Montagovian approaches is that DRT includes a level of abstract mental representations (discourse representation structures, DRS) within its formalism, which gives it an intrinsic ability to.

Whitesands (ISO: TNP) is an Oceanic language of the southern Vanuatu sub-group. Like the related languages of southern Vanuatu, Whitesands has developed a clause-linkage system that is a kind of switch-reference system. This device monitors referent continuity on new clauses – typically contrasting with the previous clause.

In this paper I investigate the use of this system in natural. From Discourse to Logic: Introduction to Modeltheoretic Semantics of Natural Language Formal Logic and Discourse Representation Theory [Kamp, Hans] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.
