Most popular at the top

  • Variation, Selection, Developmentby Regine Eckardt; Gerhard Jäger; Tonjes Veenstra

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 169.12

    Can language change be modelled as an evolutionary process? Can notions like variation, selection and competition be fruitfully applied to facts of language development? This volume offers a rich spectrum of ways to elucidate these questions, confronting studies from the perspective of historical and creole linguistics with research in Artificial... more...

  • Fortgeschrittene Lernervarietätenby Maik Walter; Patrick Grommes

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 116.25

    This collected volume presents papers dealing with the language behaviour of advanced learners of a foreign language. In recent decades, research into second language acquisition has concerned itself principally with the early stages. In contrast to these early stages, the language behaviour of advanced learners is far more difficult to analyse,... more...

  • 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. Its point of departure is the distinction between content and structural units, which are defined in psycholinguistic terms. The focus of the book is on structural representations, in particular their hierarchicalness and their branching direction. Structural... more...

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

    Equinox Publishing Ltd 2008; US$ 28.45

    This short book is intended for two groups of readers, and so is two books in one. First, it is a genuinely introductory introduction to Systemic Functional Grammar (SFG) for the 21st century. But this is also a book for experienced linguists who are interested in a scholarly comparison of the two main current versions of SFG – the Sydney Grammar... more...

  • Linguistic Fieldworkby Dr Claire Bowern

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 42.00

    This is a practical guide to all aspects of linguistic fieldwork. It not only discusses techniques for working on the phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax and discourse of an undescribed language, but also considers field technology, grant application preparation, ethical research methods and problems which might arise when in the field. more...

  • Constructions and Language Changeby Alexander Bergs; Gabriele Diewald

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 169.12

    Studies in diachronic linguistics increasingly acknowledge that linguistic change is highly context-dependent and somehow tied to constructions as linguistic units. This is the first volume to investigate the role of constructions and the potential of constructional approaches in linguistic change. The contributions in this volume comprise... more...

  • The Discourse Potential of Underspecified Structuresby Anita Steube

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 179.69

    The volume demonstrates the interdependence of man?s language capacity and his other conceptual capacities. This enables linguistic structures to be minimalised, and for extra-linguistic domains to provide much of the interpretations of sound and meaning. Underspecification is demonstrated in the word formation of Indo-European, Late Archaic... more...

  • Applied Linguistics at the Interfaceby Mike Baynham; Alice Deignan; Goodith White

    Equinox Publishing Ltd 2004; US$ 31.30

    The theme of this volume, a selection of papers from the 2003 conference of the British Association of Applied Linguistics, celebrates the productive interface between Applied Linguistics research and other disciplinary ways of knowing, forms of professional practice and issues of public concern. more...

  • Continuing Discourse on Languageby Ruqaiya Hasan; Christian Matthiessen; Jonathan Webster

    Equinox Publishing Ltd 2007; US$ 114.00

    The two volume set Continuing Discourse on Language offers the reader a selective account of the evolution of important aspects of Halliday's Systemic Functional Linguistics over the last couple of decades. more...

  • System and Corpusby Geoff Thompson; Susan Hunston

    Equinox Publishing Ltd 2006; US$ 28.45

    This book is the first to combine interests in two currently popular approaches to language description, both of which are based on the observation of naturally-occurring, as opposed to invented, language. Systemic Functional Linguistics is a theory that focuses on meaning, choice and probability in language and on language as a social phenomenon.... more...
