Rethinking the Coordinate-Subordinate Dichotomy: - download pdf or read online

This examine argues that the area characteristically coated through 'coordination' and 'subordination' in English could be subdivided into 4 exact development kinds. The buildings are outlined at the foundation of ameliorations of their 'interpersonal' constitution, i. e. the grammatical encoding of speaker-attitude and speaker-interlocutor interplay.

Example text

R) ║ fə(r)]. for by [bai ║ bi], now rare: by the by. till [til ║ tl]: not till ƒive. Evolution of the sound-system 25 It should be noted that prepositions have the full vowel before weakly-stressed pronouns: he looks at us [æt əs], but with stress on us [ət 'Λs] ; she doesn't care for him im], but with stress on him [fə 'him]. becomes [nt] when fused with auxiliary verbs; the [n] is syllabic after a Not consonant, as in haven’t, hadn’t, hasn’t, isn’t, shouldn’t, wouldn’t, mustn’t [mΛsnt], but not after a vowel, as in aren’t, weren’t; note the vowels in can’t [ka·nt], shan’t [∫a·nt], won’t [wount], don’t [dount].

In shower, OE. scūr; flower and ƒlour are two different spellings of what is etymologically and phonetically the same word; fire and hire are disyllabics as early as in Shakespeare, who rhymes the former with liar. 32. Before this weakened r, original short i, u, and e (in so far as this had not become a) have fallen together, and we have now the same vowel [ə·] resulting from the vowel and r in bird, word, herd=heard [bə·d, Wə·d, hə·d]; other examples are mirth, myrtle, cur, journey, earl, etc.

Inversely, takes and hobbles lose their -s in the plural; his becomes their, but the rest of the sentence is unchanged. Next, if instead of speaking of the present time we want to speak of the past, the two sentences become (3) The old beggar took his hat and hobbled along. (4) The old beggars took their hats and hobbled along. It will be seen that the change of time affects the verbs only (takes and take become took, hobbles and hobble become hobbled), but not the other parts of speech; further, that took and hobbled are alike in the singular and plural.
