  • What to Talk Aboutby Chris Colin; Rob Baedeker; Tony Millionaire

    Chronicle Books LLC 2014; US$ 11.99

    Homo sapiens have been speaking for hundreds of years?and yet basic communication still stymies us. We freeze up in elevators, on dates, at parties, under Dumpsters. We stagger through our exchanges merely hoping not to crash, never considering that we might soar. We go home sweaty and eat a birthday cake in the shower. But no more. With What to... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 135.00

    The essay describes how Polish members of parliament (MPs) reinvented the institution of parliament (conceived of in its essentially discursive character as parleyment) in the course of the political transition of 1989.

  • Renaissance Truthsby Alan R. Perreiah

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    For humanists the perfect language was a revived Classical Latin. For scholastics it was a practical logic adapted to the needs of education. Though they have long been portrayed as arch rivals, Alan Perreiah here argues that humanists and scholastics were working in complementary ways toward some of the same goals: most significantly, the early modern... more...

  • Sorry About Thatby Edwin L. Battistella

    Oxford University Press, USA 2014; US$ 16.99

    People do bad things. They misspeak, mislead, and misbehave. They lie, cheat, steal, and kill. Often, afterward, they apologize. But what makes a successful apology? Why does Joe Biden's 2007 apology for referring to Barack Obama as "articulate and bright" succeed, whereas Mel Gibson's 2006 apology for his anti-Semitic tirade fails?... more...

  • Chiasmus And Cultureby Boris Wiseman; Anthony Paul

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 29.95

    Anyone who has heard of chiasmus is likely to think of it as no more than a piece of rhetorical playfulness, at times challenging, though useful for supplying a memorable sententious note or for performing a pirouette of syntax and thought. Going beyond traditional rhetoric, this volume is concerned with the possibility of using the figure of chiasmus... more...

  • Ästhetische Transfers zwischen Literatur und Werbungby Dominik Baumgarten

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 27.61

Einen besonderen Fokus legt... more...
