  • Tibetanby Philip Denwood

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 188.00

    The Tibetan language comprises a wide range of spoken and written varieties whose known history dates from the 7th century AD to the present day. Its speakers inhabit a vast area in Central Asia and the Himalayas extending into seven modern nation states, while its abundant literature includes much of vital importance to the study of Buddhism. After... more...

  • Theory and Data in Cognitive Linguisticsby Nikolas Gisborne; Willem B. Hollmann

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    How do people describe events they have witnessed? What role does linguistic aspect play in this process? To provide answers to these questions, we conducted an experiment on aspectual framing. In our task, people were asked to view videotaped vehicular accidents and to describe what happened (perfective framing) or what was happening (imperfective... more...

  • Paradigm Changeby Martine Robbeets; Walter Bisang

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    The paper reviews the data concerning the nominal inflectional morphology in the chain of languages comprising Uralic, Turkic, Mongolic, Tungusic, Koreanic and Japonic, collectively termed “Ural-Altaic”. Although nominal morphology has traditionally been quoted in support of the hypothesis concerning the genetic relationship of these languages,... more...

  • Input and Experience in Bilingual Developmentby Theres Grüter; Johanne Paradis

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 135.00

    Amount of exposure has been observed to affect the linguistic development of bilingual children in a variety of domains. As yet, however, relatively few studies have compared the acquisition across domains within the same group of children. Such a comparative approach is arguably essential to gain a more complete understanding of input effects in bilingual... more...

  • Mots nous en catalŕ / New words in Catalanby M. Teresa Cabré Castellví; Ona Domčnech Bagaria; Rosa Estopŕ Bagot

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    Semantic neologisms contribute to renewing and enlarging the capacity of expression and communicating resources of languages. They usually help speakers to make their descriptions more powerful and their speech more effective. However, neologisms related to semantic change are rather difficult to detect by automatic procedures, because changes in meaning... more...

  • The Diachrony of Negationby Maj-Britt Mosegaard Hansen; Jacqueline Visconti

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    Labov’s idea that the vernacular is the most stable variety of a language raises questions especially where languages of wider communication are concerned. Whether the vernacular practices of a language’s geographical varieties are convergent synchronically and historically can be established by looking at particular variables. One such... more...

  • Minimalism and Beyondby Peter Kosta; Steven L. Franks; Teodora Radeva-Bork; Lilia Schürcks

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    The problem pursued in this paper concerns the role of Arbitrariness in linguistic expressions. Saussurean Arbitrariness is due to the conventional sound-meaning-relation of linguistic expressions. It is systematically projected (but not reduced) from Lexical Items to linguistic expressions of unrestricted complexity by the operation of Merge. This... more...

  • Communication in Autismby Joanne Arciuli; Jon Brock

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    Autism is among the most severe, prevalent and heritable of all neurodevelopmental disorders. However, the factors causing autism are still unclear. Language difficulties are at the core of autism, and any aetiological theory must incorporate a plausible explanation of this symptom. The development of cerebral lateralisation has long been theorised... more...

  • Reclaiming Control as a Semantic and Pragmatic Phenomenonby Patrick Duffley

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    This monograph is part of a growing research agenda in which semantics and pragmatics not only complement the grammar, but replace it. The analysis is based on the assumption that human language is not primarily about form, but about form-meaning pairings. This runs counter to the autonomous-syntax postulate underlying Landau (2013)?s Control in Generative... more...

  • Perspectives on Arabic Linguistics XXVIby Reem Khamis-Dakwar; Karen Froud

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    Diglossia is one distinctive feature of Arabic and other languages, such as Swiss-German (Ferguson 1959). Neurocognitive studies aiming to understand the neural mechanisms of diglossia in general, and Arabic diglossia in particular, are sparse. This paper provides a framework for discussing neurophysiological approaches to questions concerning the... more...
