  • Virtusby Silke Schwandt

    Campus Verlag 2014; US$ 35.86

    Die Verwendung des lateinischen Wortes »virtus« ist in den Schriften des Mittelalters nahezu omnipräsent. Gleichzeitig ist das Konzept, das mit dieser Vokabel verbunden wird, mehrdeutig und schillernd. Was uns heute als »Tugend« verständlich erscheint, hat eine semantische Karriere hinter sich, die sich zwischen so unterschiedlichen Bedeutungen wie... more...

  • Events, Arguments, and Aspectsby Klaus Robering

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    The aspectual interpretation of sentences is constrained by the truth conditions predicates impose on points of times or time intervals. Using data from English, Vendler (1967) established a classification of four verb types on these grounds, that has been widely accepted in linguistic theory. Various researchers, among them Dowty (1979) for English... more...

  • Kiss My Asteriskby Jenny Baranick

    Skyhorse Publishing 2014; US$ 14.95

    Grammar has finally let its hair down! Unlike uptight grammar books that overwhelm us with every single grammar rule, Kiss My Asterisk is like a bikini: it?s fun, flirty, and covers only the most important bits. Its lessons, which are 100 percent free of complicated grammar jargon, have been carefully selected to include today?s most common, noticeable... more...

  • The Foundations of Linguistic Theory (RLE Linguistics B: Grammar)by Nigel Love

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    For Roy Harris, the fundamental problem about linguistics is that it has been led astray by the fact that we are capable intellectually of ?decontextualising? our own verbal behaviour. A whole interlocking system of doctrines about forms, meanings and communication has arisen designed to support the idea that one particular kind of decontextualising... more...

  • Linguistic Meaning (RLE Linguistics A: General Linguistics)by Keith Allan

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 185.00

    The work assumes that the primary task of a theory of linguistic meaning is to describe the meaning of speech acts. This in turn presupposes a theory of semantics and a theory of prosodic meaning, as well as a proper treatment of the co-operative principle, context and background information. These matters are dealt with in detail. The second task... more...

  • The Linguistic Description of Opaque Contexts (RLE Linguistics A: General Linguistics)by Janet Dean Fodor

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    The study of opacity falls under the general programme of showing how the meaning of any complex sentence is composed from the meanings of its constituent clauses, phrases and words. Opaque constructions are special from this point of view because the compositional principles that determine their meaning are so intricate. The main argument of this... more...

  • Accessing Noun-Phrase Antecedents (RLE Linguistics B: Grammar)by Mira Ariel

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    This book offers a radical shift in the analysis of discourse anaphora, from a purely pragmatic account to a cognitive account, in terms of processing procedures. Referring expressions are defined as markers signalling the degree of Accessibility in memory of the antecedent. This analysis yields an astonishing array of new results. The precise distribution... more...

  • The Prefunctional Stage of First Language Acquistion (RLE Linguistics C: Applied Linguistics)by Ianthi-Maria Tsimpli

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    This book provides a theory of first language acquisition in the syntactic framework of the theory of Universal Grammar. It addresses issues related to the earliest stage of development which ends roughly around the child?s second birthday. The theory put forward capitalises on the traditional observation that early child grammars characteristically... more...
