      AbstractLinguistic animacy reflects a particular construal of biological distinctions encountered in the world, passed through cultural and cognitive filters. This study explores the process by which our construal of animacy becomes encoded in the grammars of human languages. We ran an iterated learning experiment investigating the effect of animacy on Cited by: 1. Animacy (antonym: inanimacy) is a grammatical and semantic feature, existing in some languages, expressing how sentient or alive the referent of a noun is. Widely expressed, animacy is one of the most elementary principles in languages around the globe, and is a distinction acquired as early as six months of age.

    In fact the opposite is largely the case. That is, the way language is used for communication is still one of the most perplexing and challenging issues facing anyone interested in questions of language. In order to approach the issue, it must be addressed through reference, and in particular to how reference is embedded in linguistic by: 2. ‘animacy hierarchy Access to the complete content on Oxford Reference requires a subscription or purchase.

The concept of 'animacy' concerns the fundamental and cognitive question of the extent to which we recognize and express living things as saliently human-like or animal-like.

Unlike previous studies on the subject focussing on grammatical manifestations, Animacy and Reference sheds light upon the conceptual properties of animacy itself and its reflection in referential processes. For the research of this study the author focussed on languages that show completely different : Mutsumi Yamamoto.

Animacy and reference: a cognitive approach to corpus linguistics. [Mutsumi Yamamoto] -- The concept of 'animacy' concerns the fundamental and cognitive question of the extent to which we recognize and express living things as saliently human-like or animal-like.

Get this from a library. Animacy and reference: a cognitive approach to corpus linguistics. [Mutsumi Yamamoto]. We find that, as predicted by models of animacy proposed by Dahl () and Yamamoto (), among others, Animacy and Reference book in reference – specifically from common noun to proper noun to pronoun, and from collective to individuated referents – reflect characters’ shifting conceptualisation of, and empathy with, each other.

In Animacy and Reference Mutsumi Yamamoto pursues two main objectives: First, to establish a conceptual framework of animacy, and secondly, to explain how the concept of animacy can be reflected in the use of referential expressions.

This chapter addresses the role of case and animacy as interacting cues to role-semantic interpretation in grammar and language processing.

Animacy is interpreted as a cue to agentivity taken as a multidimensional, generalized semantic : Beatrice Primus. Animacy and Reference (review) The remaining chapters directly address the role of animacy in the referential expressions of English and Japanese.

3 (73­) explores the hierarchy of persons and the role of animacy in number distinctions. The chapters of this volume scrutinize the interplay of different combinations of case, animacy and semantic roles, thus contributing to our understanding of these notions in a novel way.

The focus of the chapters lies on showing how animacy affects argument marking. Unlike previous studies, these chapters primarily deal with lesser studied phenomena, such as animacy. Y explores animacy in terms of several overlapping parameters: the General Animacy Scale, person hierarchy, individuation scale, semantic (thematic) roles, and politeness (or deference; Y draws no distinction between the two concepts).

Each of these parameters is defined and briefly discussed in the introduction (1–7).Author: Edward J. Vajda. These are the sources and citations used to research Animacy and Memory Lab Report.

The answer lies in animacy: taking the premise that subjects are animate, the book argues that children can exploit the occurrence of an inanimate subject as a cue to a non-canonical structure, in which that subject is displaced (the book is easy/*eager to read).
