The findings show that during the Hellenistic period agorai had a crucial... more...

  • Semanticsby Igor Mel?cuk; David Beck; Alain Polguère

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2015; US$ 158.00

    This book presents an innovative and novel approach to linguistic semantics, starting from the idea that language can be described as a mechanism for the expression of linguistic Meanings as particular surface forms, or Texts.

It is explained why logistic regression is exceptionally well suited for the comparison of near-synonyms in corpus data; the technique allows the researcher to identify... more...

  • Frames of Understanding in Text and Discourseby Alexander Ziem

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    How do words mean? What is the nature of meaning? How can we grasp a word?s meaning? The frame-semantic approach developed in this book offers some well-founded answers to such long-standing, but still controversial issues. Following Charles Fillmore?s definition of frames as both organizers of experience and tools for understanding, the monograph... more...

  • The 25 Rules of Grammarby Joseph Piercy

    Michael O'Mara 2014; US$ 9.99

    English grammar is often said to be over-complicated and difficult to get to grips with but the truth is that, while there are certain rules that should be obeyed, the language evolves and develops over time - and quite rightly so. In this book, Joseph Piercy outlines the 25 rules that should be adhered to in written and spoken English, defining the... more...

  • Kulturwissenschaftliche Linguistikby Thomas Metten

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Repeatedly, scholars have demanded that language, due to its materiality and performativity, be understood as a medium. Along these lines, this book provides a systematic foundation of a media theory of communication, which envisions language as cultural practice of understanding. From this, a new, linguistically oriented way of cultural studies... more...
