    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 128.00

  • 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...

  • Aspects of Language Contactby Thomas Stolz; Dik Bakker; Rosa Salas Palomo

    De Gruyter Mouton 2008; US$ 224.00

    This edited volume brings together fourteen original contributions to the on-going debate about what is possible in contact-induced language change. The authors present a number of new vistas on language contact which represent new developments in the field. In the first part of the volume, the focus is on methodology and theory. The second part of... more...

  • Structure in Languageby Thomas Berg

    Taylor and Francis 2008; 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...

  • Rootsby Sam Featherston; Wolfgang Sternefeld

    De Gruyter Mouton 2007; US$ 196.00

    The renewed focus on the evidential base of linguistics in general, but particularly on syntax, is in to a large degree dependent on technological developments: computers, electronic storage and transmission. These factors have enabled a revolution in the accessibility of digitally stored language, both in sampled and organized corpora and in its raw... more...

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

    De Gruyter Mouton 2008; US$ 196.00

    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 Intelligence... more...

  • Fortgeschrittene Lernervarietätenby Maik Walter; Patrick Grommes

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 133.00

    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, as... more...

  • Linguistic Fieldworkby Dr Claire Bowern

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 40.00

    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 Mouton 2008; US$ 196.00

    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 both theoretical... more...

  • The Discourse Potential of Underspecified Structuresby Anita Steube

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 210.00

    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 Chinese... more...
