This paper investigates the underlying structure of exceptive constructions with the Arabic exceptive marker ’illā and reveals the existence of two types of constructions: r(estrictive)-exceptives and s(ubtractive)-exceptives. The underlying factor that distinguishes these two constructions relates to the existence of a subtraction domain in s-exce...

Ever since the first humans migrated out of Africa many years ago, humanity has been on the move and humans have been migrating on a global scale ever since. But what exactly is migration? In some non-human animals (for example, some geese, hummingbirds, butterflies and whales), migration is a behavioural adaptation (learned behaviour) but it can...

I argue that these adpositions as used in spatial relationships a...

Article
Full-text available
This paper explores the internal syntax and semantics of Arabic spatial prepositions. It is shown that Arabic prepositional elements can be divided into the two main spatial domains: place and path. Moreover, the categorial status and semantics of the two main classes of Arabic prepositions, true prepositions and semi-prepositions, show differences...

This book will primarily focus on the formal and informal educational opportunities that are available to the migrant students, as well as the barriers that prevent them from fully accessing these opportunities. The book will also focus on how the experiences of migrant and refugee students in higher education have evolved over time, and the impact that this evolution has had on their educational experiences. Finally, the book will focus on the ways in which higher education institutions have responded to the educational needs of migrant and refugee students, and the role that the education industry has played in this response, both formally and informally.
