    For a long time, Toolbox has been the most used software dedicated to text annotation in the community of field linguists, especially for African linguistics. However, its limitations, and the growing need to pair text and sound, have made it important to find another solution to text annotation. This paper, aimed at a readership of information technology... more...

  • Narrative and Identity Construction in the Pacific Islandsby Farzana Gounder

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2015; US$ 149.00

    Post-structural and post-modern theories have understood the concept of gender as a “fictitious” element rooted exclusively in a linguistic reality (see Butler, 1990), constituted by an illusory metaphysic of substances. Therefore, for these schools, “there is no gender identity behind the expression of gender” and consequently,... more...

  • Consciousness, Emotional Self-Regulation and the Brainby Mario Beauregard

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 149.00

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 158.00

    It is a commonplace to say that the meaning of text is more than the conjunction of the meaning of its constituents.

In this edited volume, leading scientists in the... more...
