  • The Emergence of Protolanguageby Michael A. Arbib; Derek Bickerton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 128.00

    In dealing with the nature of protolanguage, an important formative factor in its development, and one that would surely have influenced that nature, has too often been neglected: the precise circumstances under which protolanguage arose. Three factors are involved in this neglect: a failure to appreciate radical differences between the functions of... more...

  • Theory and Typology of Proper Namesby Willy Van Langendonck

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 224.00

    This book proposes a new synthesis of the functions of proper names, from a semantic, pragmatic and syntactic perspective and provides a new classification of names. Since the most recent linguistic book in English on name theory dates back to 1973, this book fills an important gap in the current literature. more...

    The book contains 30 descriptive chapters dealing with a specific language contact situation.

  • Namen des Frühmittelalters als sprachliche Zeugnisse und als Geschichtsquellenby Albrecht Greule; Matthias Springer

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 210.00

    The main focus of the present collected volume is placed on early medieval personal names, which are examined for their value as sources both for linguists and for historians. There is a discussion of Germanic, Romance and Slavonic names. In addition, there is a paper dealing with pre-historic place-names, and one looking into the future under... more...

  • Linguistic Borrowing in Bilingual Contextsby Fredric Field; Bernard Comrie

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 165.00

    A number of previous approaches to linguistic borrowing and contact phenomena in general have concluded that there are no formal boundaries whatsoever to the kinds of material that can pass from one language into another. At the same time, various hierarchies illustrate that some things are indeed more likely to be borrowed than others. Linguistic... more...

  • Named Entitiesby Satoshi Sekine; Elisabete Ranchhod

    Named Entities provides critical information for many NLP applications.

  • Semitic and Indo-Europeanby Saul Levin

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1995; US$ 210.00

    This volume presents the key examples of morphological correspondences between Indo-European and Semitic languages, afforded by nouns, verbal roots, pronouns, prepositions, and numerals. Its focus is on shared morphology embodied in the cognate vocabulary. The facts that are brought out in this volume do not fit comfortably within either the Indo-Europeanists’... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 225.00

    This is a sequel to the author's Semitic and Indo-European: The Principal Etymologies (1995). That volume provided the key examples of morphological correspondences between the Semitic and the Indo-European languages. In this sequel, the author analyzes correspondences of structure, either within a certain group of languages or belonging to a distantly... more...

  • Onomastik und Lexikographie, Deonomastikby Jean-Pierre Chambon; Wolfgang Schweickard

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 321.00

    Der Wörterbuchcharakter vieler namenkundlichen Arbeiten ist ein deutliches Indiz für die Berührungspunkte zwischen Onomastik und Lexikographie. Umgekehrt sieht sich die Lexikographie (und mit ihr die Lexikologie) in mancherlei Hinsicht mit der Frage der Behandlung der Eigennamen konfrontiert. Die Sektionsarbeit ging auf eine Reihe dieser... more...

  • Namenforschung / Name Studies / Les noms propres. 2. Halbband+Registerbandby Ernst Eichler
