A Cognitive-Functional Approach to Nominalization in English
A Cognitive-Functional Approach to Nominalization in English aims to develop a new approach to the analysis of nominalization. The book takes on this challenge in three parts. In the first part, a general-descriptive model is mapped out for analyzing language and nominalization in particular. The two subsequent parts are case studies, in which the model is applied to deverbal -er nominalization (e.g. bake -> baker) and three types of factive nominalization (e.g. [That he managed to do it] surprised everyone). Heyvaert's study proves to be - to say it with a deverbal nominalization - a real eye-opener.
