  • Invitation to Systemic Functional Linguistics through the Cardiff Grammarby Robin Fawcett

    Equinox Publishing Ltd 2008; US$ 28.45

  • Structure in Languageby Thomas Berg

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 54.95

    This book examines one of the allegedly unique features of human language: structure sensitivity.
