    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1985; US$ 135.00

    Chicano English can rightly be said to be, in its different varieties, the most widespread ethnic dialect of U.S. English, spoken by large sections of the population in the American Southwest. It represents a type of speech referred to by E. Haugen as a ‘bilingual’ dialect, having developed out of a stable Spanish-English setting. In their book, the... more...

  • Grooming, Gossip and the Evolution of Languageby Robin Dunbar

    Faber & Faber 2011; US$ 12.49

    Did mankind evolve unusually large brains simply in order to gossip? Primates differ from other animals by the intensity of their social relationships, by the amount of time they spend grooming one another. Not just a matter of hygiene, grooming is all about cementing bonds, making friends and influencing your fellow ape. Early humans, in their characteristic... more...

  • Historical Cognitive Linguisticsby Margaret E. Winters; Heli Tissari; Kathryn Allan

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 210.00

    The volume explores the ways in which language change is studied within the framework of Cognitive Linguistics, a semantics-based theory of language production and perception. The eleven chapters explore two kinds of changes: firstly, those which involve mental prototypes or 'best instances' of particular concepts and extensions of these... more...

  • 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...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 165.00

    This collection of papers consolidates the observation that linguistic change typically is actualized step by step: any structural innovation being introduced, accepted, and generalized, over time, in one grammatical environment after another, in a progression that can be understood by reference to the markedness values and the ranking of the conditioning... more...

  • Events and Predicationby Montserrat Sanz

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 158.00

    Studies on the syntactic consequences of event type in languages have shown that Aktionsart plays a role in Universal Grammar. This book contributes to the exploration of the syntax/semantics interface by presenting a thorough comparison of event and predicate types in English and Spanish. The mapping between event and syntactic predicate types,... more...

  • Grammatical Relations in Romaniby Viktor Elšík; Yaron Matras

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 165.00

    This is the first typologically-oriented collection on Romani that is devoted to a particular thematic domain — that of noun phrase grammar. The approach taken is unique in that it places this typologically hybrid language in the centre of a general linguistic, universal discussion of the relevant noun phrase phenomena. The book is also the first assembly... more...
