  • 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 Truth of the Technological Worldby Friedrich Kittler; Erik Butler

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 27.95

    Friedrich Kittler (1943?2011) combined the study of literature, cinema, technology, and philosophy in a manner sufficiently novel to be recognized as a new field of academic endeavor in his native Germany.

  • The Sociological Turn in Translation and Interpreting Studiesby Claudia V. Angelelli

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 120.00

    The traditional view holds that professional interpreters should be transparent, invisible, passive, neutral, and detached, a view reiterated and reinforced in the prescribed interpreters’ codes of conduct of national and international professional organizations. Such an idealized role construct, however, is from time to time deconstructed in... more...

  • Interacting with Objectsby Maurice Nevile; Pentti Haddington; Trine Heinemann; Mirka Rauniomaa

We will present particular syntactic structures raised from a change... more...
