  • Fortgeschrittene Lernervarietštenby Maik Walter; Patrick Grommes

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 116.72

    This collected volume presents papers dealing with the language behaviour of advanced learners of a foreign language.

  • 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.

  • 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...

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 169.79

    The series publishes state-of-the-art work on core areas of linguistics across theoretical frameworks as well as studies that provide new insights by building bridges to neighbouring fields such as neuroscience and cognitive science. The series considers itself a forum for cutting-edge research based on solid empirical data on language... more...

  • The Discourse Potential of Underspecified Structuresby Anita Steube

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 180.41

    Human languages are very economical systems of knowledge, which usually contribute to the formation and interpretation of an utterance only what cannot be supplied by other conceptual systems. Thus, conceptual underspecification and context-dependence are essential properties, which vary from one particular language to the next in dependence... more...

  • Linguisticsby Andrew Radford; Martin Atkinson; David Britain; Harald Clahsen; Andrew Spencer

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 48.00

    The second edition of this highly successful textbook offering a unified approach to language from a range of perspectives. more...

    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

  • 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...
