Secondary Predication and Adverbial Modification Book Summary/Review:

Depictive secondary predicates, such as 'raw' in 'George ate the fish raw', are central to current issues in syntactic and semantic theory - in particular predication theory, phrase structure theories, issues of control and grammatical relations, and verbal aspect. This is the first book to approach depictive secondary predication from a cross-linguistic perspective. It describes all the relevant phenomena and brings together critical surveys and new contributions on their morphosyntactic and semantic properties. It considers similarities and differences between secondary predicates and other types of adjuncts, including adverbials of manner, comparison, quantity, and location. The authors are leading scholars with a first-hand knowledge of the languages they discuss. Their approach is theory-neutral and pragmatic: they draw on insights and research traditions ranging from the minimalist program to semantic maps methodology. The book will interest scholars working on the semantics or syntax of secondary predicates, adverbials, and the role of agreement and other morphological marking. It has been designed for use in advanced syntax and typology classes.

All I Ask Of You is the love song that triggers the Phantom of The Opera’s jealous campaign of retribution in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary musical; Cliff Richard and Sarah Brightman took it for a spin in 1986 and had a hit single. Big Spender became even more popular than the 1966 musical from which it came — ‘Sweet Charity’ — and Shirley Bassey did much to popularise it later. Written specifically for Colm Wilkinson, Bring Him Home is the emotional song

But not without peril. Sappho’s writing remains only in fragments, partly due to the passage of time, but mostly as a result of systematic efforts to silence women’s voices. Sappho’s hopeful boast captures the mission of this anthology:
