  • Cultural Semantics and Social Cognitionby Carsten Levisen

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 154.00

With an engaging study of Danish cultural keywords, this book offers a new framework for understanding language-particular universes of meaning and lays the ground for comparative research into the diversity of... more...
