  • 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...

  • A-Gby Peter Rolf Lutzeier

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 377.00

    The 3-volume dictionary presents words in German that have opposed readings as part of their individual polysemy. Such an opposite meaning is, for an individual word, analogous to the common antonymy that exists between different words. The concept of opposite meaning is relatively unknown and, in contrast to synonym and anytonym dictionaries, there... more...

  • About the Speakerby Alessandra Giorgi

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 49.99

    This book considers important aspects of the syntax of sentences and their relation to the extra-sentential context. The relation between a sentence and the context is frequently reckoned to be in some sense <"syntax-free>", in that it is not syntactically represented but introduced post-syntactically by semantic rules of interpretation.... more...

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

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 120.00

    Accessing Noun-Phrase Antecedents offers a radical shift in the analysis of discourse anaphora, from a purely pragmatic account to a cognitive account, in terms of processing procedures. Mira Ariel defines referring expressions as markers signalling the degree of Accessibility in memory of the antecedent. The notion of Accessibility is explicitly... more...

  • Advances in Frame Semanticsby Mirjam Fried; Kiki Nikiforidou

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 128.00

    Construction grammarians are still quite reluctant to extend their descriptions to units beyond the sentence. However, the theoretical premises of construction grammar and frame semantics are particularly suited to cover spoken interaction from a cognitive perspective. Furthermore, as construction grammar is anchored in the cognitive linguistics paradigm... more...

  • Alignment in Communicationby Ipke Wachsmuth; Jan de Ruiter; Petra Jaecks; Stefan Kopp

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2013; US$ 149.00

    In accordance with accumulating evidence from research, we assume a strong but flexible relation between emotional and communicative alignment in interaction. The communicative function of emotional adaptation, the processing of emotions on all linguistic levels and the empirical evidence in studies with neurological patient groups support our approach.... more...

  • Antonymyby Steven Jones

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 175.00

    Antonymy is the technical name used to describe 'opposites', pairs of words such as rich/poor, love/hate and male/female. Antonyms are a ubiquitous part of everyday language, and this book provides a detailed, comprehensive account of the phenomenon. This book demonstrates how traditional linguistic theory can be revisited, updated and challenged in... more...

  • Aspects of Meaning Constructionby Günter Radden; Klaus-Michael Köpcke; Thomas Berg; Peter Siemund

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 165.00

    Meaning does not reside in linguistic units but is constructed in the minds of the language users. Meaning construction is an on-line mental activity whereby speech participants create meanings on the basis of underspecified linguistic units. The construction of meaning is guided by cognitive principles. The contributions collected in the volume focus... more...

  • Barrieren überwindenby Gerhard Vohs

    tredition 2014; US$ 5.58

    Eine ironisch-satirische Geschichte, die auf wirkliche Ereignisse beruht, allerdings mit viel Ironie und Sarkasmus dargestellt. Sie beginnt mit dem Leben in der Türkei, einem Schmerzempfinden mit falscher Diagnose, die Fahrt nach Deutschland und der Besuch dortiger Ärzte. Auch hier zunächst eine Falschdiagnose, dann aber die Feststellung eines Anal... more...
