Abstract:

The book introduces the concept of <i>asymmetric events</i>, an important
concept in language and cognition, which, for the first time in linguistic
literature, is identified in a more systematic way and analyzed in a number
of different languages, including typologically or genetically unrelated
ones. Asymmetric events are <i>two or more events of unequal status in an
utterance</i> and papers in the volume present ways in which a linguistic
description of main events in a sentence is different (morphologically,
syntactically, discursively) from a description of backgrounded events. The
prototypical asymmetries involving perception, cognition, and language are
identified in subordination, nominalization and modification of various
kinds but they extend to coordinate structures, serial verbs, spatial
language and viewing arrangement, as well as part - whole relations. The
perspective is broadly cognitive and functional, the authors use different
though complementing methodologies, some include corpus data, and the
asymmetries are shown to have a variety of stylistic and ideological
implications. An in-depth analysis of manifold asymmetries in structure and
function of diverse languages makes this volume of interest to linguists of
different persuasion, philosophers, cognitive researchers, discourse
analysts and students of language and cognition.
