  • History of Linguistics 2005by Douglas A. Kibbee

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 195.00

    In 1959, Gaifman proved that category grammars were the equivalents of phrasal grammars, so much so that they could never have the expressive power for representing the complexity of natural languages. As a consequence, no new category model was proposed for more than thirty years. Nevertheless, we are now witnessing a renaissance of the category perspective,... more...

Describing and explaining these interactions is fundamentally important to theories... more...

  • Learner and Teacher Autonomyby Terry Lamb; Hayo Reinders

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 149.00

    Despite a shift in the field of learner autonomy towards a consideration of the role of the teacher and ways in which learner autonomy is bound up not only with the learners? but also the teachers? own learning and teaching experiences and their beliefs about autonomy, the interrelationships between the concepts are still largely unclear.
