    Another look at spatial prepositions and the modification problem2013Inngår i: Iberia: An International Journal of Theoretical Linguistics, ISSN 1989-8525, E-ISSN 1989-8525, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 1-40Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The goal of this paper is to propose a unification of two strands of research within the semantics of spatial prepositions. The first strand focuses on the so-called modification problem, which can be stated as follows. Some, but not all spatial prepositions can be modified by measure phrases, such as ten meters (e.g. ten meters in front of the car). The second strand focuses on so-called prepositional aspect, in particular the fact that some but not all spatial prepositions can occur with the temporal adverbial phrase in one hour (e.g. to). A simple unified syntactic and semantic approach of aspect properties is offered, to account the data. This unified account is shown to explain and predict why telic/non-cumulative prepositions cannot combine with measure phrases (viz. *ten meters to the park). It is discussed whether prepositions that can combine with measure phrases, such as ten meters in front of the car and ten meters towards the car, have different lexical aspect properties, such as cumulativity and/or monotonicity. The answer is offered via a standard analysis of the distribution of these complex phrases with the temporal adverbs in one hour/for one hour. The consequences of the unified analysis are discussed in detail.

    Ave' and Tene': Another look at auxiliary selection in Aquilan2014Inngår i: Dialectologia, ISSN 2013-2247, E-ISSN 2013-2247, nr 13, s. 115-143Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a unified approach on two poorly understood problems of auxiliary selection in the Aquilan dialect. The first problem pertains to the distribution of an auxiliary verb that denotes the notion of “possession”, tene’. The second problem pertains to the distribution of a more standard auxiliary verb, ave´, which denotes the notion of “existence” in compound tenses, in suppletive distribution with esse. A proposed solution is that the distribution of both auxiliary verbs can be accounted via a simple analysis of Aquilan’s person-driven agreement: how a verb interacts with its arguments. This analysis is based on a formal (type-logical) representation of Distributed Morphology combined with Type-Logical calculi, and shown to correctly account and predict the distribution of these auxiliary verbs.

    Experimental Entailments: The Case of Spatial Prepositions2014Inngår i: Nordic Journal of English Studies, ISSN 1654-6970, E-ISSN 1654-6970, Vol. 13, nr 3, s. 112-138Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present an experimental study on native speakers’ access to lexical relations among spatial relations. Our main focus is a still poorly understood domain: the lexical relations that hold between (pairs of) directional spatial prepositions (from, to) and locative prepositions (at). Two broad families of proposals exist in the literature. One family suggests that the members of these two classes of prepositions are connected via the entailment relation. Another family suggests that the overlap relation connects directional and locative prepositions. These two proposals differ with respect to the predictions they make on how speakers can accept and logically connect sentences that include such pairs of prepositions. We offer an experimental study, based on a variant of the Truth-Value Judgment Task, which aims to adjudicate which family of proposals makes the correct predictions. Then, we discuss the theoretical import of the results.

    Language and Thought in The Invisibles2015Inngår i: ImageTexT: Interdisciplinary Comics Studies, ISSN 1549-6732, E-ISSN 1549-6732, Vol. 8, nr 2Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to explore how the relation between language and cognition is used as a complex trope in the 1994-2000 comic The Invisibles (Morrison et al.). The Invisibles features a secret language that different characters can access and use to manipulate how other characters can cognize reality. Although this secret language seems to posit the existence of a universal ability of humans to access an enriched understanding of reality, such secret language is also used as a tool of ultimate cognitive manipulation. Thus, language and cognition act as a complex trope that Morrison employs to explore themes of freedom and control, as well as different views on the mind/external world problem. We address this complex trope by discussing which scientific theories of language and cognition appear to be implemented in the story, and how they are used as tropes in the narrative.

    Metaphoric and Literal Readings for Spatial Prepositions: The Case of Boolean Phrases2015Inngår i: Language and Semiotic Studies, ISSN 2096-031X, Vol. 1, nr 3, s. 52-79Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an account of how literal and metaphoric readings of spatial prepositions in so-called “Boolean Phrases” can arise. The account aims to explain how metaphoric and literal readings can interact, when two (spatial) prepositional phrases are the arguments of one phrase headed by Boolean connectives and and or (e.g. in front of the car and over his problems). It is shown that these phenomena can receive a more thorough compositional analysis by assuming that both types of readings are part of a larger semantic domain for spatial prepositions, logical connectives and their combinations thereof.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a Distributed Morphology approach to the morphology and semantics of spatial prepositions (in front of) and anaphors (here), complete with a situation semantics interpretation. The proposal is shown to account both known and recalcitrant data, such as anaphoric relations between elements of the two categories. Ideal follow-up to the "Borealis" paper.More Info: Conference proceeding in which we introduce a type-logical version of Distributed Morphology, with a Situation Semantics interpretation.

    On the Syntax and Semantics of Haber and Tener2013Inngår i: Lingue e linguaggio, ISSN 1720-9331, Vol. 12, nr 1, s. 89-120Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a novel approach on the syntax and semantics of the two spanish auxiliary verbs haber and tener and their distributional properties. It is argued that these verbs share key syntactic properties, but denote two different types of semantic relations. While tener denotes a property ascribed to the subject, haber only introduces the temporal reference of a sentence. This proposal on the semantics of tener and haber is then inserted in a broader proposal on auxiliary verbs, copulae and their distribution. It is shown that the current proposal can correctly account the distribution of tener and haber, and be seamlessly integrated with standard approaches to ser and estar.

    On the syntax and semantics of Italian spatial Ps2015Inngår i: Acta Linguistica Hungarica, ISSN 1216-8076, E-ISSN 1588-2624, Vol. 62, nr 1, s. 63-110Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper offers a unified approach to Italian spatial prepositions, such as di fronte a 'in front of', verso 'towards', in 'in', dietro a 'behind', and nel mezzo di 'in the middle of'. Three assumptions play a key role. First, Italian spatial prepositions can differ sensibly in their morphological structure, but share the same syntactic properties. Second, their sentential distribution is in part context-sensitive, thus based on the categories with which they combine. Third, their semantic contribution is layered, in the sense that it includes the meaning dimensions of both aspectual boundedness and specificity. The main result is a generalised theory on the structure and semantic interpretation of these prepositions.

    The interpretation of Spatial 'At': An Experimental Study2013Inngår i: Journal of cognitive science, ISSN 1598-2327, Vol. 14, nr 1, s. 47-76Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an experimental study on the interpretation of the spatialpreposition at in adult speakers, based on a variant of the Truth ValueJudgment Task. It is shown that speakers can interpret at as denoting a spatialrelation that stands in the “lexical entailment” relation with other spatial prepositions(e.g. inside, in front of, on top of, behind). For instance, if multiplelocated entities are involved in this relation, then they may occupy locationsthat can be “internal”, “external”, or placed on different verses of the samedirection, e.g. in front or behind a certain landmark object. It is discussed whichsemantic hypothesis correctly predicts these findings, and what the implicationscould be, for a theory of spatial prepositions and their Semantics.

    The Language Of Space: The Acquisition And Interpretation of Spatial Adpositions In English2011Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis by publication presents a study on English adpositions (e.g. to, in, at, from, in frontof, through). It attempts to offer a solution to the following three outstanding problems, whichare presented in each of the three parts making up the thesis, preceded by a general introduction(chapter 1) and followed by the general conclusions (chapter 7). The first part includes chapter2, and discusses the problem of What is the relation between adpositions and the non-linguistic,visual content they represent. The second part includes chapters 3 and 4, and discusses theproblem ofwhat is a proper compositional theory of the Syntax and Semantics of adpositions.The third part includes chapters 5 and 6, and discusses the problem of what is the psychologicalreality of this theory, regarding adults and children’s data.The following three solutions are suggested. First, the relation between adpositions and theircorresponding visual information is an isomorphism: adpositions capture how we “see” possiblespatio-temporal relations between objects, at a flexible level of fine-grainedness. Second, aproper compositional treatment of adpositions treats each syntactic unit (in front, of ) as offeringa distinct semantic contribution, hence spelling out a restricted instance of a spatio-temporalpart-of relation. Third, this compositional treatment of adpositions can also stand as a theory ofon-line interpretation in adults and a theory of their acquisition in children.These three answers are couched within a single theoretical approach, that of Discourse Representation Theory, and offer a unified solution to three apparently distinct problems regardingspatial adpositions and their linguistic properties.

    The interpretation of plural definites in discourse: the case of spatial prepositions2013Inngår i: Linguistics and the human sciences, ISSN 1742-2906, E-ISSN 1743-1662, Vol. 9, nr 2, s. 201-226Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    n this paper we offer a study on the interpretation of plural definites in discourse (‘the tank engines’) and their interaction with spatial adpositions (‘to’ and ‘at’). The novel empirical findings in the paper support the following assumptions on the contribution of spatial adpositions to the interpretation of plural definites. First, the interpretation of plural definites can be influenced by the lexical aspect type of adpositions. While ‘to’ as ‘telic’ predicate can license both a ‘collective’ and a ‘distributive’ reading for plural definites, ‘at’ as an ‘atelic’ predicate only licenses a ‘collective’ reading. Second, the precise lexical content of adpositions determines which interpretation is accessed. It is claimed that ‘at’ denotes a ‘general location’ relation between locatum and landmark object, and thus licenses a collective reading for plural definites.

    Objects and Nouns: Ontologies and Relations2014Inngår i: Online Proceedings of the Second Workshop on Action, Perception and Language (APL 2) / [ed] Simon Dobnik, 2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper sketches a theory, based on the notion of infomorphism, on the ontological structures that underlie two related cognitive processes within vision and language: object recognition and noun interpretation. It is suggested that such a proposal can shed notion on at least three phenomena (reference, lexical variation, and “thinking-for speaking”).

    Visions of the Future in Comics: International Perspectives2017Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Across generations and genres, comics have imagined different views of the future, from unattainable utopias to worrisome dystopias. These presaging narratives can be read as reflections of their authors' (and readers') hopes, fears and beliefs about the present. This collection of new essays explores the creative processes in comics production that bring plausible futures to the page. The contributors investigate portrayals in different stylistic traditions-manga, bande desinees-from a variety of theoretical perspectives. The disparate yet coherent picture that emerges documents the elaborate storylines and complex universes comics creators have been crafting for decades.
