Events and Narratives in Language, Hardback Book

Events and Narratives in Language Hardback

Edited by Janusz Badio

Part of the Lodz Studies in Language series

Description

This book analyzes events and narratives from the points of view of literature, grammar, discourse, and semantics.

The contributors explore the issues related to the ways of portraying stories and their events within a cultural and literary framework.

They also examine the role of prefixes in construing events and asymmetries that exist in time-creating event markers from a contrastive perspective.

The contributions focus on narrativity as a semantic category, and on how events are described in signed languages.

They place the event and narrative categories at the center of interest and their specific goals are pursued by applying different, both qualitative and quantitative, research methods.
