  • "Wenn die Ränder ins Zentrum drängen ..."by Joachim Born; Wolfgang Pöckl

    Frank & Timme 2014; US$ 47.32

    Die herkömmliche Wortbildungsforschung ist stark auf Einzelsprachen fokussiert, was die Herausbildung nationaler Terminologien fördert. Wenn sich Vertreter(innen) verschiedener Philologien und Traditionen treffen, um neue Entwicklungen aus ihrem Fachgebiet zu beschreiben, stellen sie daher fest, dass es zwar generell viele innovative und expansive... more...

  • 'You Know'by Jan-Ola Östman

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1981; US$ 102.00

    The basic function the expression you know serves in conversational discourse is said to be that of a pragmatic particle used when the speaker wants the addressee to accept as mutual knowledge (or at least be cooperative with respect to) the propositional content of his utterance. The fact that you know is even used when the addressee is assumed... more...

  • Above and Beyond the Segmentsby Johanneke Caspers; Yiya Chen; Willemijn Heeren; Jos Pacilly; Niels O. Schiller; Ellen van Zanten

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    This paper investigates the role of affricates in the phonotactics of English, and notes that these segments behave differently from stops and differently from fricatives. This is taken as evidence against the proposal that affricates cannot form a natural class by themselves, which is inherent in the so-called “Stop Approach” to the representation... 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...

  • Advances in Corpus-based Contrastive Linguisticsby Karin Aijmer; Bengt Altenberg

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 143.00

    This paper describes the thematic variation observed in two newspaper genres – news reports and commentaries – in English and Spanish and studies the influence of genre-specific and language-specific constraints on the observed variation. The study is based on the contrastive analysis of certain clausal and discourse-thematic features... more...

  • Advances in Functional Linguisticsby Joseph Davis; Radmila J. Gorup; Nancy Stern

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 188.00

    This collection carries the functionalist Columbia School of linguistics forward with contributions on linguistic theory, semiotics, phonology, grammar, lexicon, and anthropology. Columbia School linguistics views language as a symbolic tool whose structure is shaped both by its communicative function and by the characteristics of its users, and considers... more...

  • Ambiguityby Susanne Winkler

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    This volume uncovers a great mystery about language: why can we communicate so effectively despite the fact that ambiguity is pervasive? Conversely, how do speakers use ambiguity to achieve a specific goal? Answers to these questions are provided in contributions from different academic fields: (psycho)linguistics, literary criticism,... more...
