Readership: Scholars and advanced students of morphology, syntax, semantics, and their interfaces. It will also appeal to researchers in philosophy, psycholinguistics,
and language acquisition who are interested in the notions of telicity, change, and stativity.
Edited by Violeta Demonte, Spanish National Research Council, and Louise McNally, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona
Violeta Demonte is Research Professor of Linguistics at the Spanish National Research Council. Her research has mostly concentrated on the areas of syntax and lexical semantics. Among her research topics are complement clauses, the syntax and semantics of adjectives, NP structure, aspect in secondary predication, and syntactic variation. She was the Director (with I. Bosque) of the Gramática descriptiva de la lengua española (RAE-Espasa Calpe, 5.500 p.)
Louise McNally is Professor of Linguistics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. Her research focuses on various aspects of nominal, verbal, and adjectival semantics, the semantics of modification, and more generally on the syntax/semantics and semantics/pragmatics interfaces. Her most recent book, co-edited with Christopher Kennedy, is Adjectives and Adverbs: Syntax, Semantics, and Discourse (Oxford, 2008).
