    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...

  • Constructions and Language Changeby Alexander Bergs; Gabriele Diewald

    De Gruyter 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Field Linguisticsby Terry Crowley

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 44.99

    This book is a comprehensive, practical guide to field linguistics. It deals in particular with the problems arising from the documentation of endangered languages. Terry Crowley shows how to prepare for that task, and how to record, analyse, and describe languages in the field. Mixing formal instruction and anecdote, the author shares his rich experience... more...
