    BRILL 2008; US$ 189.00

    Taking a functional-typological approach, this work argues that the Sumerian conjugation prefixes, in their primary function, constitute a system of grammatical voice, in which the active voice is set against the middle voice. These prefixes are, in turn, represented by heavy and light markers that differ with respect to focus and emphasis. more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 143.00

    Metalanguage in Interaction is about the crystallization of metalanguage employed throughout interaction into the discourse markers which permeate talk.
