  • "Picking up the Pieces"by Sibille Rigler

    Harrassowitz Verlag 2014; US$ 65.88

    Woody Allens Filme sind reich an Zitaten und Anspielungen, philosophischen Diskursen und direkten Bezugnahmen auf andere Künstler.

  • The Mannequins' Ballby Daniel Gerould; Bruno Jaslenski

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    This play, by Futurist poet Bruno Jasienski, is an outstanding example of the joining of left-wing politics and avant-garde interest in human mechanization that characterized the experimental theatre of Poland in the inter-war years. Stalinism and the purges cut short Jasienski's career and prevented productions of his play for many years - except... more...

    Klop Ustinov was Britain's most ingenious secret agent, but he wasn't authorised to kill. Instead, he was authorised to tell tall tales, bemusing and beguiling his enemies into revealing their deepest, darkest secrets. From the Russian Revolution to the Cold War, he bluffed and tricked his way into the confidence of everyone from Soviet commissars... more...

  • Between Phonology and Phoneticsby Eugeniusz Cyran

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    For decades, the voicing system of Polish has been at the center of a heated theoretical debate concerning laryngeal phonology as it features a number of phenomena, such as Final Obstruent Devoicing, Regressive Voice Assimilation, Progressive Voice Assimilation, dialectally distributed external sandhi voicing in pre-sonorant context, and other instances... more...

  • Grammatical Relations and their Non-Canonical Encoding in Balticby Axel Holvoet; Nicole Nau

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 165.00

    This paper is a first report on an ongoing project aiming at building up a database of non-canonical argument marking in Lithuanian in contrast to other languages with relatively rich systems of morphological cases.

  • Politische Schlagwörter im postkommunistischen Albanien (1990-2001)by Ema Kristo

    Harrassowitz Verlag 2014; US$ 75.93

    Besonders in schwierigen gesellschaftlich-politischen Situationen ist die Sprache eines der wichtigsten Mittel zur Durchsetzung von Zielen, und so führt das Bedürfnis der Politik, Interessenkonflikte mit publizistischen Mitteln in der medialen Öffentlichkeit auszutragen, oft zur Verwendung von Feind-, Stigma- und Schlagwörtern. Bezeichnend für den... more...
