  • Reflecting the Mindby Eros Corazza

    Clarendon Press 2004; US$ 114.99

    Eros Corazza presents a fascinating investigation of the role that indexicals (e.g. 'I', 'she', 'this', 'today', 'here') play in our thought. Indexicality is crucial to the understanding of such puzzling issues as the nature of the self, the nature of perception, social interaction, psychological pathologies,... more...

  • Negation in Gappingby Sophie Repp

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 48.99

    This book presents a cross-linguistic investigation of the behaviour of negation in gapping sentences. Sophie Repp focusses on German and English with reference to Dutch, Japanese, Polish, Russian, and Slovak. She shows that these languages exhibit important differences in the interaction of gapping and negation and further that no account in the literature... more...

  • Simple Sentences, Substitution, and Intuitionsby Jennifer M. Saul

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 28.99

    The phenomenon of substitution failure is a longstanding focus of discussion for philosophers of language. Substitution failure occurs when a change from one co-referential name to another (e.g. from 'Superman' to 'Clark Kent') affects the truth-value of a sentence. Jennifer Saul has shown that this can occur even in the simplest of... more...

  • Explorations in Linguistic Relativityby Martin Pütz; Marjolijn H. Verspoor

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 188.00

    About a century after the year Benjamin Lee Whorf (1897?1941) was born, his theory complex is still the object of keen interest to linguists. Rencently, scholars have argued that it was not his theory complex itself, but an over-simplified, reduced section taken out of context that has become known as the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis that has met with so... more...

  • Polysemy in Cognitive Linguisticsby Hubert Cuyckens; Britta E. Zawada

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 180.00

    In Cognitive Linguistics, polysemy is regarded as a categorizing phenomenon; i.e., related meanings of words form categories centering around a prototype and bearing family resemblance relations to one another. Under this polysemy = categorization view, the scope of investigation has been gradually broadened from categories in the lexical and lexico-grammatical... more...

  • Semiotics and Dialecticsby Peter V. Zima

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1981; US$ 224.00

    By focusing on the ?East European? dialogues and polemics, both contemporary and past, the present volume pursues two aims: 1) It would like to locate the discussion between semiotics and dialectics in an historical context. 2) It would like to make the reader familiar with the solutions proposed by theoreticians like Bakhtin, Lotman, Voloshinov, Fischer... more...

  • History of Semioticsby Achim Eschbach; Jürgen Trabant

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1983; US$ 203.00

    This volume brings together a collection of papers on the general theoretical and methodological problems in the historiography of semiotics. It is not a history in the conventional sense, even though the main periods and figures in the development of semiotics are given due prominence. Nevertheless, it should offer the reader stimulation and food... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1981; US$ 102.00

    The four studies grouped under the title Essai sur les modalités tensives touch upon several questions of semiotics presently debated in the theoretical framework proposed by A.J. Greimas. They are mainly concerned with the passages between meaning and form, and with the convertibilités between the different levels. more...
