The objectives of the current paper are: 1) to define the pronoun as a grammatical category
and means of impersonal presentation in the English language, 2) to determine the most frequently used classes of pronouns as means of impersonal presentation in English quality press, 3) to identify the reasons for the use of this impersonalization strategy in the quality press, and 4) to compare the frequency of use of the pronouns as means of impersonal presentation.
In the languages which have the grammatical category
of gender, personified images are stenciled basically along the lines suggested by the grammatical gender of the nouns that denote those objects and notions that undergo personification.
Articles as a grammatical category
are not present in all modern European languages, even though they are considered a feature of the so-called Standard Average European (van der Auwera 2011: 293).
In the last two decades, evidentiality as a semantic and grammatical category
has shown an increase in attention from researchers (Bybee 1985; Evidentiality 1986; Willett 1988; Aikhenvald 2004).
However, the core intuition of Ross does not necessarily argue in favour of this approach: it could be, also, that each property corresponds to a formal feature and features combine in different ways inside heads or configurations that collectively define a grammatical category
Arakaki examines the marks of evidence that control the source of speaker identification, then analyzes Luchuan grammar the direct evidence of verb morphology, the inferential and assumed evidence, the reportive evidence as a contribution to the study of evidentiality in Luchuan, and the typological and theoretical study of evidentiality as a grammatical category
The purpose of this analysis was to test whether the words-in-isolation strategy would equally favor all words from all grammatical categories, or whether, on the contrary, most words found in isolation belonged just to a specific grammatical category
such as noun or verb.
Hence results of the grammatical category
help the researcher to sustain her claim that G-1 was much sensitive towards the acquisition of the language specific rule as the grammatical constructions were designed with no sub agency and the ECP violation.
Then, verbs, adjectives and adverbs and finally color each grammatical category
The dictionary section (166 pages) contains 115 double-column pages of Gathang headwords followed by an English translation (referred to as a 'definition' in the introduction), grammatical category
information, illustrative sentences, cross-references (both to the grammar and to synonyms and variant forms in the dictionary), data from neighbouring languages, and all source data in its original form.
In the case of demonstratives, the grammatical category
number was the main cause of error, since the demonstrative was used in the singular when the head of the noun phrase was in the plural.
Languages like Brazilian Portuguese or English (CHAFE, 1986) do not encode evidentiality as an obligatory grammatical category
, but such languages can develop devices to indicate mirativity, providing evidence to support the claim that the latter is indeed a distinct universal semantic category, as DeLancey (1997) suggests.
