  • Clitic Doubling in the Balkan Languagesby Dalina Kallulli; Liliane Tasmowski

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 173.00

    Despite the extensive, long standing and multi-focused literature on clitics and clitic doubling in the clause, clitic doubling in the dp is a phenomenon still very little, if at all, understood. Our primary concern in this paper is to contribute to the literature on possessor doubling by looking at the co-occurrence of a possessive dp and a possessive... more...

  • Clitic Phenomena in European Languagesby Frits Beukema; Marcel den Dikken

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 180.00

    This book is concerned with a number of central issues in the theory of clitics, a topic that has become much debated in recent years. Mainly written within a recent generative framework, its contrastive approach discusses these issues against the background of a number of European languages, among which the Balkan Slavic languages figure prominently.... more...

  • The Discourse of Europeby Sharon Millar; John Wilson

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 149.00

    In this volume we approach the question of what it is to be European by considering the way in which citizens talk about their everyday lives, as they are perceived against the background of Europe and European issues. Hence, the volume will offer insights into the rarely glimpsed micro political world of ordinary talk and explore the way in which... more...

  • Europe and the Mediterranean as Linguistic Areasby Paolo Ramat; Elisa Roma

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 180.00

    This article provides a new vista of an old problem, viz. the supposed counter-iconic nature of a variety of reduplicative patterns which encode categories such as diminution, attenuation, etc. It is argued that even these categories are iconically represented by reduplication because iconicity is not tied to an increase in size of the entities referred... more...

  • Handbook of Perceptual Dialectologyby Dennis R. Preston

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 261.00

    Perceptual dialectology investigates what ordinary people (as opposed to professional linguists) believe about the distribution of language varieties in their own and surrounding speech communities and how they have arrived at and implement those beliefs. It studies the beliefs of the common folk about which dialects exist and, indeed, about what attitudes... more...

  • Handbook of Perceptual Dialectologyby Daniel Long; Dennis R. Preston

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 261.00

    The Handbook of Perceptual Dialectology, Volume 2, expands on the coverage of both regions and methodologies in the investigation of nonlinguists' perceptions of language variety. New areas studied include Canada (anglophone and francophone), Cuba, Hungary, Italy, Korea, and Mali, and most prominent among the new approaches are studies of the salience... more...

  • Language, Religion and National Identity in Europe and the Middle Eastby John Myhill

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 173.00

    This book discusses the historical record of the idea that language is associated with national identity, demonstrating that different applications of this idea have consistently produced certain types of results. Nationalist movements aimed at ?unification?, based upon languages which vary greatly at the spoken level, e.g. German, Italian, Pan-Turkish... more...

  • Linguistic Theory and South Asian Languagesby Josef Bayer; Tanmoy Bhattacharya; M.T. Hany Babu

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 173.00

    This article deals with phonological awareness which is explicit or conscious knowledge of the phonological structure that speakers of a language exhibit. It seeks to establish whether biliterate speakers of Telugu and English who are exposed to an alphabetic writing system and a semi-syllabic writing system are able to manipulate words in terms of... more...

  • Split Possessionby Thomas Stolz; Sonja Kettler; Cornelia Stroh; Aina Urdze

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 195.00

    This book is a functional-typological study of possession splits in European languages. It shows that genetically and structurally diverse languages such as Icelandic, Welsh, and Maltese display possessive systems which are sensitive to semantically based distinctions reminiscent of the alienability correlation. These distinctions are grammatically... more...

  • Subordination and Coordination Strategies in North Asian Languagesby Edward J. Vajda

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 158.00

    Across North Asia, complex sentence formation patterns display an unusually high prevalence of suffixed relational morphemes used to convey subordination. Suffixal subordinators occur in a variety of genetic groupings, most notably Samoyedic, Turkic, and Tungusic, but also in some of the region?s language isolates, such as Ket and Ainu. No general... more...
