Syntax versus Semantics [article]

Reinhard Kahle, Wilfried Keller
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We report on the idea to use colours to distinguish syntax and semantics as an educational tool in logic classes.  ...  This distinction gives also reason to reflect on some philosophical issues concerning semantics.  ...  The differentiation of syntax and semantics becomes even more significant. What it means to put "syntax first" we will discuss in the next section.  ...

Feature inheritance versus extended projections [chapter]

Hans Broekhuis
2016 Optimality-Theoretic Syntax, Semantics, and Pragmatics  
Apart from the fact that this claim is false (compare the difference between John will go home versus Will John go home?)  ...  Later research has further suggested that A-movement is also required for semantic reasons for negation (e.g.  ...

Direct versus Inverse in Murik-Kopar [chapter]

William A. Foley
2021 Explorations of the Syntax-Semantics Interface  
So unlike Murik and Yimas, which have a split case marking system of nominativeaccusative versus ergative-nominative according to local versus non-local persons, Kopar is consistently ergative-nominative  ...  For the local persons, all contrasts collapse to ma-[-addressee] versus i-[+addressee].  ...

The syntax and semantics interface of present-day and Old English speech verbs : say and tell versus secgan and tellan

Marta María González Orta
2002 Journal of English Studies  
The aim of this paper is to analyse the syntax-semantics interface of the Old English speech verbs secgan and tellan, and the Present-day English speech verbs say and tell, respectively, in order to show  ...  the differences in each language when linking their syntactic and semantic representations.  ...  THE SYNTAX-SEMANTICS INTERFACE OF SAY/SECGAN AND TELL/TELLAN In this section the analysis of the syntax-semantics interface of the speech verbs say/secgan and tell/tellan will be compared in order to show  ...

The brain circuitry of syntactic comprehension

Edith Kaan, Tamara Y. Swaab
2002 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
Many regard syntax as a cognitive module that is separable from other more general cognitive processes such as memory and attention [1] and whose properties can be distinguished from semantic-conceptual  ...  for syntax alone?  ...  Third, Broca's aphasics also exhibit semantic deficits [12] , which suggests that the damaged areas are not unique for syntax.  ...

Grammatical Competence of Grade 11 Learners

2019 University of Bohol Multidisciplinary Research Journal  
Results revealed that morphology was the area where the learners are highly competent, and they are moderately competent in both semantics and syntax.  ...  The respondents' scores on morphology versus semantics, morphology versus syntax resulted to be significant. On semantics versus syntax, the result was insignificant.  ...  areas of semantics and syntax.  ...

Towards a neural basis of auditory sentence processing

Angela D. Friederici
2002 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
One view, which is characterized by serial or syntax-first models, holds that syntax is processed autonomously prior to semantic information [1, 2] .  ...  Serial, syntax-first models assume that the parser initially constructs the simplest syntactic structure on the basis of word-category information, independent of lexical-semantic information.  ...  One view, which is characterized by serial or syntax-first models, holds that syntax is processed autonomously prior to semantic information [1, 2] .  ...

A domain-specific visual language for domain model evolution

Jonathan Sprinkle, Gabor Karsai
2004 Journal of Visual Languages and Computing  
Semantics versus syntax Syntax and semantics are quite often distinguished as two different, yet related, aspects of any language (visual and modeling languages included).  ...  In order to explore this further, let us examine the meaning of a semantic versus a syntactic evolution.  ...

Second Language Learners' Knowledge of Syntax in the Acquisition of Aspectual Semantics

Bin Yin, Elsi Kaiser
2013 Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences  
Telicity (a type of aspectual semantics information) is a syntax-semantics interface property, its semantics standardly being analyzed as the product of syntactic operations.  ...  We aimed to find out whether second language learners on the semantics of telicity would demonstrate sensitivity to the syntax underlying telicity calculation.  ...  To conclude, o therefore seems to show that this syntax-semantics interface property is not necessarily easy to acquire.  ...
