  • Error Analysisby Bernd Spillner

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1991; US$ 240.00

    Errors are information. In contrastive linguistics, they are thought to be caused by unconscious transfer of mother tongue structures to the system of the target language and give information about both systems. In the interlanguage hypothesis of second language acquisition, errors are indicative of the different intermediate learning levels and are... more...

  • Deixis and Information Packaging in Russian Discourseby Lenore A. Grenoble

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 180.00

    The role deixis plays in structuring language and its relation to the context of utterance provides the focus for an examination of information packaging in Russian discourse. The analysis is based on a model which interprets discourse as constituted by four interrelated frameworks — the linguistic text, the text setting, the text content, and... more...

  • Greek and Indo-European Etymology in Actionby Raimo Anttila

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 180.00

    This study resurrects the genre of Wortstudien contributions or lexilogus treatments, the core of historical lexical semantics. Such studies used to be quite popular, and interest in lexical matters is again rising. The word family around the Indo-European root *aǵ- ‘drive’ is placed against its Germanic replacement drive as a typological... more...

  • Language and its Functionsby Pieter A. Verburg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 225.00

    When Pieter Verburg (1905-1989) published Taal en Functionaliteit in 1952, the work was received with admiration by linguistic scholars, though the number of those who could read the Dutch text for themselves remained limited. The title alludes to the theories of linguistic function set out in 1936 by Karl Bühler, but Verburg regards the three... more...

  • The Minimalist Parameterby Galina M. Alexandrova; Olga Arnaudova

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 188.00

    In view of its exploratory nature, Chomsky's 'minimalist' model has undergone multiple changes, triggering in response numerous proposals that are consistent with the tendencies that it follows or anticipates, and numerous proposals that offer alternatives to it. A good illustration of the variety of 'parallel' proposals is provided in the present... more...
