  • Standardizing Minority Languagesby Pia Lane; James Costa; Haley De Korne

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 0.01

    This volume addresses a crucial, yet largely unaddressed dimension of minority language standardization, namely how social actors engage with, support, negotiate, resist and even reject such processes. The focus is on social actors rather than language as a means for analysing the complexity and tensions inherent in contemporary standardization processes.... more...

    Lexington Books 2017; US$ 95.00

    Bilingual and multicultural approaches to the study of literature and music give the most complete panorama of the problems related to understanding artistic ability and sensibility.

  • The Materiality of Writingby Christian Mosbæk Johannessen; Theo van Leeuwen

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    This book examines the materiality of writing. It adopts a multimodal approach to argue that writing as we know it is only a small part of the myriad gestures we make, practices we engage in, and media we use in the process of trace-making. Taking a broad view of the act of writing, the volume features contributions from both established and up-and-coming... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Historical Research on Spoken Language: Corpus Perspectives uses historical sources to discuss continuity and change in spoken language.

  • Approaches to Hungarianby Harry van der Hulst; Anikó Lipták

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 203.00

    In Hungarian, suffixation derives robust instances of heteromorphemic vowel sequences (V 1 +V 2 ). This work reports on an investigation of the facts (as culled, inter alia , from traditional grammars; Kenesei et al . 1998; Siptár & Törkenczy 2000; Siptár 2008) and provides analyses for the data within the framework of Optimality... more...

  • L3 Syntactic Transferby Tanja Angelovska; Angela Hahn

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 143.00

    In the field of Instructed Third Language Acquisition (ITLA), teachers are left alone not knowing how to predict possible transfer phenomena, how to overcome them and how to raise their learners’ metalinguistic awareness. We start from the existing results and non-results of L3 acquisition (transfer) and develop practical applications as part... more...

  • Studies in Chinese and Japanese Language Acquisitionby Mineharu Nakayama; Yi-ching Su; Aijun Huang

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 149.00

    Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are traditionally believed to demonstrate profound impairment in processing semantic relations or concepts, in contrast to their relative strengths in syntax. This conclusion may be partially caused by the limitations of the traditional assessments, without incorporating fine-grained analyses of specific... more...

  • Space in Diachronyby Silvia Luraghi; Tatiana Nikitina; Chiara Zanchi

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2017; US$ 149.00

    The trajectory of motion in Russian can be expressed by a prepositional phrase with the noun in the dative case or a bare NP in the instrumental case. It is argued that the latter construction is falling into disuse, along with the general trend toward analyticity in Slavic languages (Comrie et al. 1996). In this paper, I present a corpus-based... more...
