    IOS Press 2013; US$ 174.00

    Dependencies ? directed labeled graph structures representing hierarchical relations between morphemes, words, and semantic units ? are the standard representation in many fields of computational linguistics. The linguistic significance of these structures often remains vague, however, and those working in the field stress the need for the development... more...

  • Language Processing and Grammarsby Brian Nolan; Carlos Perińán-Pascual

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This paper investigates the notion of low-level situational cognitive model, its role in linguistic description and its possible computational treatment in the knowledge base FunGramKB. Low-level situational models are exploited metonymically to produce situation-based implicatures. When such inferences become stably associated with a formal pattern,... more...

  • Literary Detective Work on the Computerby Michael P. Oakes

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    Computational linguistics can be used to uncover mysteries in text which are not always obvious to visual inspection. For example, the computer analysis of writing style can show who might be the true author of a text in cases of disputed authorship or suspected plagiarism. The theoretical background to authorship attribution is presented in a step... more...

  • Pragmatic Development in First Language Acquisitionby Danielle Matthews

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    This chapter highlights the growing need and importance of assessing young children’s pragmatic language abilities given such factors as the increasing recognition of disproportionate difficulties in pragmatics among different clinical groups, the rise of more usage-based and functional approaches to language acquisition and competence, and evidence... more...

  • Theory and Data in Cognitive Linguisticsby Nikolas Gisborne; Willem B. Hollmann

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    How do people describe events they have witnessed? What role does linguistic aspect play in this process? To provide answers to these questions, we conducted an experiment on aspectual framing. In our task, people were asked to view videotaped vehicular accidents and to describe what happened (perfective framing) or what was happening (imperfective... more...

  • Paradigm Changeby Martine Robbeets; Walter Bisang

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    The paper reviews the data concerning the nominal inflectional morphology in the chain of languages comprising Uralic, Turkic, Mongolic, Tungusic, Koreanic and Japonic, collectively termed “Ural-Altaic”. Although nominal morphology has traditionally been quoted in support of the hypothesis concerning the genetic relationship of these languages,... more...

    Channel View Publications 2014; US$ 35.00

    Starting from the key idea that learners and teachers bring diverse linguistic knowledge and resources to education, this book establishes and explores the concept of the ?multilingual turn? in languages education and the potential benefits for individuals and societies. It takes account of recent research, policy and practice in the fields of bilingual... more...

  • Discontinuity in Second Language Acquisitionby Stefano Rastelli

    Channel View Publications 2014; US$ 45.00

    With a particular focus on the morphosyntactic features of second language, this book discusses the idea that language acquisition is a discontinuous and 'quantized' process and thus that some items might be learned twice, statistically and grammatically. It argues that the switch from one way of learning to another is statistically-driven and grammatically... more...

  • The Construction of Professional Discourseby Britt-Louise Gunnarsson; Per Linell; Bengt Nordberg

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 73.95

Studies of professional communication... more...
