Learning the Meaning of Change-of-State Verbs: A Case Study of German Child Language (Reviewer:) - - Angelika Wittek; (Jan) Verb Classification in Australian Languages. Direct object omission is a general occurrence, observed in varying degrees across the world's languages.

The expression of verbal transitivity in small children begins with the regular use of verbs without their object, even where object omissions are illicit in the ambient by: 2.

In linguistics, causative alternation is a phenomenon in which certain verbs that express a change of state (or a change of degree) can be used transitively or intransitively. A causatively alternating verb, such as "open", has both a transitive meaning ("I opened the door") and an intransitive meaning ("The door opened").When causatively alternating verbs are used transitively they.

In this thesis, I present arguments for a model of language acquisition with three characteristics. These are (1) Continuity in the abstract principles of Universal Grammar; (2) Lexical Learning, or the setting of syntactic parameters based upon the acquisition of morphology; and (3) Morpholexical Learning, which is the abstraction of morphological patterns and generalizations.

Although it is true to its title in being concerned with large issues in the language-mind-meaning-matter debate that go beyond the remit of this section, one of the case studies that Beedham presents has to do with the question whether irregular verbs in English (also German and Russian) share some element of meaning that sets them apart from Cited by: 2.

Yet, the role of language-specific role-to-argument mappings in child and adult performance (Tomasello, ) and in priming across diverse domains, including production, comprehension and non-linguistic event conceptualizations (Chang et al.,Bock et al.,Gennari et al., ) strongly suggest that the same mappings established Cited by: The approach is semantic (Chs.

2–7), but there are also two experimental studies on the processing of the different aspectual classes (Chs. 8 and 9). Although English is the language with which the majority of the phenomena are exemplified, Chs. 6 and 8 analyze two German expressions, while Ch. 4 focuses on French verbs.

Abstract This study re-examines Mandarin Placement verbs from a lexical-constructional perspective and redefines the class with semantic-to-syntactic properties pertaining to lexicalization patterns in Mandarin.

However, in the case of zit v. zitten it is possible in German, for example, to use two different lexical items, sitzen meaning `to be sitting' and sich setzen meaning `to be going to sit'.
