By Etsuyo Yuasa

In Modularity in Language, Etsuyo Yuasa investigates exceptions and idiosyncrasies in a number of advanced clauses in jap and English in the framework of multi-modular methods to grammar. She proposes unique analyses of varied advanced clauses in eastern and English, which deviate from the norms of different complicated clauses within the similar language or in different languages, and indicates how those situations of syntax-semantics mismatch justify the independence (or 'autonomy') of other degrees of grammatical structures.

Yuasa's major contribution is the incorporation of the proposal of 'construction' from development Grammar into multi-modular ways to grammar. She claims that the idiosyncratic instances tested during this examine are situations of constructional and categorial mismatches the place a syntactic illustration of a prototypical building is paired with a semantic illustration of one other prototypical construction.

Modularity in Language is geared toward these attracted to grammatical theories normally, the parallel structure of grammar (including Lexical-Functional Grammar, Autolexical Grammar, Representational Modularity), Constructional Grammar, syntax/semantics interface, and eastern linguistics.
