The Directionality of (Inter)subjectification in the English Noun Phrase
Author: Lobke Ghesquière
Publisher: De Gruyter Mouton
The book investigates pathways of (inter)subjectification followed by prenominal elements in the English Noun Phrase, by tracing the development of identifying, noun-intensifying and subjective compound uses. By means of in-depth corpus study, the assumed unidirectionality of (inter)subjectification in the NP is verified and refined.
