    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 165.00

This opens the possibility of reading number marking in aspectual... more...

  • Speech and Sociability at French Urban Marketplacesby Jacqueline Lindenfeld

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1990; US$ 149.00

    This study is both particularistic and generalizing.

At another level it constitutes an attempt to show some relationships between the... more...
