Central Coincidence: The Preposition with

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, I examine the preposition with and its expression of the relation of central coincidence. The term central coincidence originates with Hale 1986, in which the terminal coincidence - central coincidence contrast parallels a basic semantic opposition that exists throughout language: the opposition between the dynamic, the change, and the stative, the static.
I argue here that with connects two arguments in a relation of central coincidence and show some of the unexpected interpretive consequences of this particular relation
