Science of language (Linguistics)

  • The Evidential Basis of Linguistic Argumentationby András Kertész; Csilla Rákosi

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    This chapter provides a survey about the most frequent methods of inconsistency resolution in Optimality Theory. With the help of the p-model, inconsistencies in OT are divided into two main groups. The first group includes conflicts that are deemed to be fatal and are solved usually by the modification of the theory: namely, clashes between “linguistic... more...

  • Linguistic Approaches to Emotions in Contextby Fabienne Baider; Georgeta Cislaru

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    In this article I examine ways in which emotional distance is narrated in autobiographical accounts of language learning and then I suggest how these insights might inform the pedagogic goal of integrating creativity and emotion in language teaching. Citing extracts from autobiographical interviews (with British adults who had learnt French or German)... more...

  • Measured Languageby Jeffrey Connor-Linton; Luke Wander Amoroso

    Georgetown University Press 2014; US$ 49.95

    Measured Language: Quantitative Studies of Acquisition, Assessment, and Variation focuses on ways in which various aspects of language can be quantified and how measurement informs and advances our understanding of language.

  • Sprachverfall?by Andreas Witt; Albrecht Plewnia

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The 2013 Annual of the Institute for the German Language provides a classification of discourse on language decline based on language history and variation linguistics.

  • Multiple Determiners and the Structure of DPsby Artemis Alexiadou

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    This book is a research monograph that investigates the crosslinguistic distribution of multiple determiners. In some languages, noun phrases permit or even seem to require a double or multiple realization of definite/indefinite markers in certain modification environments. The book develops tools that can be used to keep the different instantiations... more...

  • Using Statistics in Small-Scale Language Education Research: Focus on Non-Parametric Databy Jean L. Turner

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    Assuming no familiarity with statistical methods, this text for language education research methods and statistics courses  provides detailed guidance and instruction on principles of designing, conducting, interpreting, reading, and evaluating statistical research done in classroom settings or with a small number of participants. While three different... more...

  • Adjectives in Germanic and Romanceby Petra Sleeman; Freek Van de Velde; Harry Perridon

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    The Germanic languages display cross-linguistic variation with respect to whether predicative adjectives agree. This paper attempts to determine which component of the grammar is responsible for this variation. In order to do so, it examines three different options: the variation has a lexical source, a syntactic source, or is due to an interaction... more...

  • Cross-linguistic Investigations of Nominalization Patternsby Ileana Paul

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    Patterns of nominalization in Blackfoot are surveyed. It is demonstrated that two of these patterns behave like nouns while two others only partially behave like nouns. Degrees of nominality are analyzed within the assumption that there is a universal syntactic spine, a hierarchically organized set of categories, which are not intrinsically specified... more...

  • Historical Linguisticsby Charles Jones

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 84.95

    First Published in 1993. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company. more...

  • Meanings and Prototypes (RLE Linguistics B: Grammar)by S.L. Tsohatzidis

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 160.00

    There are fewer distinctions in any language than there are distinct things in the universe. If, therefore, languages are ways of representing the universe, a primary function of their elements must be to allow the much more varied kinds of elements out of which the universe is made to be categorized in specific ways. A prototype approach to linguistic... more...
