Towards a Proper Treatment of “NP-Related” Floating Numeral Quantifiers in Japanese  [PDF]
Kenji Yokota
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2015.54033
Abstract: One of the central questions in linguistics is whether or not the Japanese floating numeral quantifier (FNQ) is always a distributive operator, as Gunji and Hasida (1998), Nakanishi (2004, 2007, 2008), and Kobuchi (2003, 2007) contend. This paper argues against their view and that the interpretive ambiguity is resolved if the semantic ambiguity arises due to the existence of the two different types of FNQs. It is argued that, discourse-semantically, what is crucial to the distinction between the two types of FNQs is whether an FNQ is interpreted via quantificational adverbs or quantificational determiners. This distinction is required when variance in FNQ interpretation is considered. In particular, it is shown that NP-related FNQs have much in common with referential (-like) nouns, functioning as discourse anaphoric items.
A triparti??o pronominal e o estatuto das proformas cê, ocê e você
Petersen, Carol;
DELTA: Documenta??o de Estudos em Lingüística Teórica e Aplicada , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-44502008000200005
Abstract: this paper shows that the arguments presented by ramos (1997) and vitral (1996) to support the proposal of classifying the proform cê as a clitic do not account for the particular behavior of this proform in the brazilian portuguese pronominal system. to solve the problem, i reanalyze these arguments assuming the tripartite pronominal system approach, proposed by cardinaletti and starke (1999). according to this perspective, the evidence presented by the authors in favor of the cliticization of cê only shows that cê is not a strong pronoun. cê is rather shown to be a weak pronoun, which explains its contrast with ocê and você, proforms that have both weak and strong counterparts.

Hotza, Dachamir;
Revista Brasileira de Linguística Aplicada , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-63982010000300007
Abstract: this article presents an analysis about the use of pronouns in the text "sendbrief von dolmetschen" ("open letter on translating") originally written by martin luther in germany in 1530. the objective is to try to identify the addressee(s) referred by luther from frequency and location of pronouns use in this text. regarding the question about justification by belief, there is clearly a debate of ideas between luther and his opponents ("i" against "them"). when the question about the intercession of saints is concerned, the text is directed to his followers (noticeable use of "we"). it is concluded that there is not a single addressee, but many of them, which are highlighted along the text.

Abstract: The study of pronouns of address in Brazil has deserved a lot of attention in the last years. The growing use of "você" in detriment of " tu " have been analyzed thoroughly as an option by an equalitarian treatment. It is average the statement that the form " você " is acquiring pronominal statute, this weakening the agreement and carting a lot of changes starting from middles of the XIX centuries. Amid that co-occurrence, we have the form " osenhor " and " a senhora ", that indicates more formal treatment. The forms " vós " and " vos ", vosso ", they also disappear giving up place to " vocês". This paper makes a reflection on the results of some works developed in Brazil on that theme.

Sánchez Doreste,Rosa Elvira;
Opción , 2005,
Abstract: this study quantifies, interprets and explains some aspects of the behavior of the caracan speakers with regard to the use of third person pronominal clitics; the data is based on the1987 corpus of spontaneous speech gathered by the instituto de philology at the venezuelan centraluniversity (ucv). possible correlations of their non canonical use with different linguistic and extralinguistic variables are analyzed. among the conclusions of the study the following are highlighted: 1) when the clitical referent designated possesses an animated nature and a sexual character, the discordances between the generic and the numerical differentiated clitics have little relevance; 2) when the clitical referent designates only one single thing, number discordances between the clitic and referent are practically null; and on the contrary, when a plurality of things is designated, they are relevant, specially with the dative form when the referent is in a postverbal position; 3) the genus itself does not have a relation in the production of discordance, since anomalies are due to "ad sensum" concordances.

El pronombre "tú" como recurso objetivador en espa ol: variación textual y discursiva
María José Serrano
Borealis : An International Journal of Hispanic Linguistics , 2013, DOI: 10.7557/
Abstract: El pronombre tú en espa ol puede adoptar dos tipos de referencia: una deíctica que se ala prototípicamente al interlocutor y otra que no se refiere directamente a él, sino que utiliza la segunda persona para expresar contenidos generales o argumentos. Esta segunda, que se ha dado en llamar genérica o inespecífica, la hemos redenominado tú objetivador ya que constituye un tránsito del dominio de la primera persona hacia la segunda; esto es, un uso de ‘tú’ en lugar de ‘yo’ como recurso de objetivación. Se estudiarán las frecuencias de la variante expresa y omitida en distintos textos conversacionales y de los medios de comunicación del Corpus Conversacional del Espa ol de Canarias. Las diferencias entre el significado de objetivación de la variante expresa y omitida respectivamente es gradual, además, cada una de ellas coaparece con distintos elementos lingüísticos que contribuyen a conformar este significado y obtienen frecuencias dispares en los textos analizados.
Alpha (Osorno) , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22012010000200007
Abstract: this paper explores how second and third generation cuban americans from miami, florida, use the address pronouns “tú” and “ud.” when formulating speech acts such as requests in spanish. a qualitative analysis shows that the explicit use of the pronouns when uttering a speech act fulfills a double purpose: 1) to flatter the hearer and express solidarity towards her/him, and 2) to establish distance towards the interlocutor when the speaker is in a position of power.
