Crosslinguistic Semantics and Semantic Interfaces des Graduiertenkollegs Sprachliche Repräsentationen und ihre Interpretation
Projektleiter: Prof. Dr. Klaus von Heusinger
Fragestellung des Projekts:
Semantics is a proper subdiscipline of linguistics with its own field or research, its own questions and its own methods. Semantic research is well established and we have a good (and continuously increasing) knowledge of semantic categories and semantic structures of natural language and languages. The project will extend current semantic analyses according to two aspects: (i) crosslinguistic semantics and (ii) the interface between semantics and other grammatical subsystems. The project assumes that crosslinguistic work in semantics and the analyses of different interfaces will not only provide more and new data, but it will also produce new and unexpected questions and open up a new field of research.
