  • Parts of Speechby Umberto Ansaldo; Jan Don; Roland Pfau

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 143.00

    Parts of Speech are a central aspect of linguistic theory and analysis. Though a long-established tradition in Western linguistics and philosophy has assumed the validity of Parts of Speech in the study of language, there are still many questions left unanswered. For example, should Parts of Speech be treated as descriptive tools or are they to be... more...

  • Consonant Structure and Prevocalizationby Natalie Operstein

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 158.00

    This monograph proposes a new interpretation of the intrasegmental structure of consonants and provides the first systematic intra- and cross-linguistic study of consonant prevocalization. The proposed model represents consonants as inherently bigestural and makes strong predictions that are automatically relevant to phonological theory at both the... more...

  • Analogy as Structure and Processby Esa Itkonen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 165.00

    The concept of analogy is of central concern to modern cognitive scientists, whereas it has been largely neglected in linguistics in the past four decades. The goal of this thought-provoking book is (1) to introduce a cognitively and linguistically viable notion of analogy; and (2) to re-establish and build on traditional linguistic analogy-based... more...

  • Meaning Change in Grammaticalizationby Regine Eckardt

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 48.99

    This book explores the semantic and pragmatic mechanisms underlying grammaticalization. Regine Eckardt argues that language change frequently involves a structural reorganization at the phonological, morphological, and syntactic levels. Speakers not only master the structural aspect of such reanalyses, they also-as the author argues-keep a detailed... more...

  • The Linguistics of Literacyby Pamela A. Downing; Susan D. Lima; Michael Noonan

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1992; US$ 195.00

    This volume grew out of the Seventeenth Annual University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Linguistics Symposium, which was held in Milwaukee on April 8-10, 1988. The theme of the conference was the relationship between linguistics and literacy. In this volume, a selection of papers are presented which cluster around three of the major themes that developed... more...

  • The Oxford Handbook of Laboratory Phonologyby Abigail C. Cohn; Cecile Fougeron; Marie Huffman

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 169.99

    This book provides state-of-the-art coverage of research in laboratory phonology. Laboratory phonology denotes a research perspective, not a specific theory: it represents a broad community of scholars dedicated to bringing interdisciplinary experimental more...

    Michael O' Mara Books 2012; US$ 2.99

    If you have ever attempted to swallow a mattress or have forgotten to remove clothes before ironing them then this book will become a vital survival tool. For the rest of us it is a collection of the oddest, funniest and frankly most worrying instructions taken from genuine products around the world. Manufacturers from Turin to Tokyo seem truly concerned... more...

  • Case, Word Order and Prominenceby Monique Lamers; Peter de Swart

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    Language users have access to several sources of information during the build up of a meaningful construction. These include grammatical rules, situational knowledge, and general world knowledge. A central role in this process is played by the argument structure of verbs, which establishes the syntactic and semantic relationships between arguments.... more...

  • Interpreting Imperativesby Magdalena Kaufmann

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    Imperative clauses are recognized as one of the major clause types alongside those known as declarative and interrogative. Nevertheless, they are still an enigma in the study of meaning, which relies largely on either the concept of truth conditions or the concept of information growth-neither of which are easily applied to imperatives. This book puts... more...
