in my corner of the world the standard textbook is Heim & Kratzer, but Chierchia & McConnell-Ginet is also used a fair bit
Okay, good to know. I’m not in a position to research those right now but I’m making this post just so I have it
Does anyone have any recommendations as far as semantics textbooks go? Frawley’s 1992 “Linguistic Semantics” is hella expensive; Sebastian Loebner’s 2002 “Understanding Semantics” is significantly cheaper; those are the two I’ve seen recommended. I’m looking for a compromise between comprehensiveness and price, and I will likely be using the textbook to teach myself on my own time, so something that supports auto-didaction would be great.
Question mark so that y’all can respond?
chomsky is on another level man, I’m reading his 1956 “Three Models for the Description of Language” and I just puzzled through the first bit of obtuse and under-explained mathematical notation (a process that took me fully two or three days) and three paragraphs later there’s another bit of it of equal or greater obscurity
there’s like a dozen of these things scattered through the article, was higher-level math part of what every linguist was required to know in 1956
yo so I have nearly thirty dollars in Barnes and Noble gift cards, what linguistics books should I buy for my NOOK?
someone talk to me about English third-person pronouns (◕‿◕✿)
diana hornoiu is blowing my mind and also my analysis out of the water, damn
found someone to do my syntax individual study with trace
murder rises a little in my heart every time my sociolinguistics textbook uses <i> for [ɪ]. and <u> for [ʊ]. and <o> for [ᴐ]. murder is approaching the spillover level in my heart.
when people transpose <etc.> to <ect.> because they parse it as a word and /ɛkt/ ends in a legal consonant cluster in English and /ɛtk/ does not~
at least I assume that’s what’s going on
anyway it’s cute~ (◡‿◡✿)
