“The ideal combination, for an introductory textbook, of individual chapters written by internationally acknowledged experts, all writing within a didactic framework created and strictly monitored by the editors. Teachers will be delighted with the variety of group tasks and exercises, and students with the glossary and the unusually detailed index.” Malcolm Coulthard, Emeritus Professor, University of Aston “a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the study of linguistic science. It has a good balance between the formal tools needed to study languages (syntax, phonology, etc.) and more practical, applied areas of study.” Misha Becker, Associate Professor, University of North Carolina.

The Linguistic Typology of Templates Jeff Good State University of New York, Buffalo

Linguistic templates have long been of interest to linguists. They have yet to be comprehensively studied at the word and sentential level. This book provides the first general reference and develops cutting-edge computational methods to examine their cross-linguistic variation. It will be of interest to theoretical, descriptive, and typologically oriented linguists. Advance praise: ‘This book serves as an important gateway into a more productive cross-linguistic understanding of these constructions across a broad range of structural domains. It will quickly become a standard reference for typological investigations of seemingly unrelated templatic phenomena.’ Kristine A.

It proposes how we can deduce from universal and language-particular hypotheses definite predictions about acceptability judgments by individual speakers and obtain experimental results precisely in accordance with such predictions.

Inflectional Defectiveness Andrea D. Sims Ohio State University

An innovative investigation of ‘missing’ grammatical forms and their significance for linguistic theory. This accessible introduction to inflectional defectiveness draws on both formal and psycholinguistic perspectives to explore the structure of inflectional paradigms: the text’s novel approach makes it essential reading for graduate students and researchers in linguistics. ‘Sims’ study is an important contribution to our understanding of inflectional systems. It is a very wideranging survey of defectiveness and makes a compelling case for treating it as an important and often very systematic property of inflectional systems. At the same time the book provides a clear and readable survey of the key features of the informationtheoretic word-and-paradigm model,

The Structure of Spoken Language Intonation in Romance Philippe Martin Université Paris Diderot

Drawing on data from six Romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and Romanian), this monograph focuses on a widely debated area of phonetics and phonology: intonation, and specifically its relation to metrics, its interface with syntax, and whether it can be attributed to phonetics or phonology, or to both. ‘One of the leading scholars in the field of prosody presents his framework in this comprehensive book. The ‘incremental storage concatenation model’ challenges the ‘autosegmental model’ on the basis of large spoken corpora, looking at the Romance languages in particular, while also extending to English and Chinese Mandarin.

The Cambridge Handbook of Morphology Edited by Andrew Hippisley University of Kentucky

and Greg Stump University of Kentucky

The Cambridge Handbook of Morphology describes the diversity of morphological phenomena in the world’s languages, surveying the methodologies by which these phenomena are investigated and the theoretical interpretations that have been proposed to explain them. The Handbook provides morphologists with a comprehensive account of the interlocking issues and hypotheses that drive research in morphology; for linguists generally, it presents current thought on the interface of morphology with other grammatical components and on the significance of morphology for

understanding language change and the psychology of language; for students of linguistics, it is a guide to the presentday landscape of morphological science and to the advances that have brought it to its current state; and for readers in other fields (psychology, philosophy, computer science, and others), it reveals just how much we know about systematic relations of form to content in a language’s words – and how much we have yet to learn.

The Cambridge Handbook of English Corpus Linguistics (CHECL) surveys the breadth of corpus-based linguistic research on English, including chapters on collocations, phraseology, grammatical variation, historical change, and the description of registers and dialects. The most innovative aspects of the CHECL are its emphasis on critical discussion, its explicit evaluation of the state of the art in each sub-discipline, and the inclusion of empirical case studies. While each chapter includes a broad survey of previous research, the primary focus is on a detailed description of the most important corpus-based studies in this area, with discussion of what those studies found, and why they are important. Each chapter also includes a critical discussion of the corpus-based methods employed for research in this area, as well as an explicit summary of new findings and discoveries.

Linguistic Typology refers to the crosslinguistic study of languages, which involves comparing languages in terms of their structure and function, and categorising them into types, and language families. Languages are classified in terms of the range of linguistic levels such as syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics, lexicon and cultural/social conventions, making this field relevant to work in almost every subdiscipline of linguistics. This field-defining handbook consists of twenty-nine chapters written by leading experts in the field, and covers methodology, typological profiling and categorisation.

The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Multi-Competence Edited by Vivian Cook University of Newcastle upon Tyne

and Li Wei Birkbeck, University of London

How are two or more languages learned and contained in the same mind or the same community? This handbook presents an up-to-date view of the concept of multi-competence, exploring the research questions it has generated and the methods that have been used to investigate it. The book brings together psychologists, sociolinguists, Second Language Acquisition (SLA) researchers, and language teachers from across the world to look at how multi-competence relates to their own areas of study. This comprehensive, state-of-the-art exploration of multicompetence research and ideas offers a powerful critique of the values and methods of classical SLA research, and an exciting preview of the future implications of multi-competence for research and thinking about language. It is an essential reference for all those concerned with language learning, language use and language teaching.

Why We Gesture The Surprising Role of Hand Movements in Communication David McNeill University of Chicago

This unique contribution to the field builds upon decades of research and presents a compelling new perspective on speech and gesture. Why We Gesture brings gestures to the fore, countering the traditional view that they are simply add-ons with a decorative function. McNeill’s central idea is that gestures orchestrate speech. ‘David McNeill explores and extends his life’s work, the study of the gesture/language system – our unique, human, expressive being – in this exhilarating, challenging, masterly tour-de-force.’ Jonathan Cole 2015 228 x 152 mm 150pp 118 b/w illus.  11 tables   978-1-107-13718-9 Hardback £64.99 / US$99.99

and reading disorders, cementing the handbook’s position as the best study of the subject available. In a wide-ranging survey, language development is traced from prelinguistic infancy to adolescence in typical and atypical contexts; the material is intuitively grouped into six thematic sections, enabling readers to easily find specific in-depth information. With topics as varied as statistical learning, bilingualism, and the neurobiology of reading disorders, this multidisciplinary Handbook is an essential reference for students and researchers in linguistics, psychology, cognitive science, speech pathology, education and anthropology.

Bilingual Figurative Language Processing Edited by Roberto R. Heredia Texas A & M University

and Anna B. Cieślicka Texas A & M University

Bilingual Figurative Language Processing provides a much-needed bilingual perspective to the field of figurative language. This is the first book of its kind to address how bilinguals learn, store and comprehend figurative language. It offers readers an overview of the major theoretical and methodological advances in this field. ‘This groundbreaking book dares to venture not just in one but in two areas that are rarely visited by research in bilingualism and figurative language. Grounded in state-of-the-art theoretical, methodological, analytical, and experimental approaches, this volume offers cutting-edge research on acquisition, production, processing

and comprehension of figurative language in the bilingual linguistic repertoire. The editors deserve our great admiration for bringing together a team of international researchers to cover a wide spectrum of topics ranging from humor, metaphors and irony to negative sentiments in order to foreground applied and crosslinguistic issues.’ Tej K.

The Emergence of Hybrid Grammars Language Contact and Change Enoch Oladé Aboh Universiteit van Amsterdam

Based on a detailed study of creole languages, this book contributes to the debate on language acquisition and change by showing that language acquisition requires contact between different linguistic sub-systems that feed into the hybrid grammars that learners develop. Competition between

13

these grammars may eventually result in language change. ‘Enoch Aboh’s book is a tour de force as it weaves together painstakingly documented history, novel and reliable empirical bases and elegant theoretical analyses in order to draw a fascinating and often profoundly satisfying scenario of Creole formation. Such a scenario will enliven and enlighten current debates in Creole studies. Aboh raises the bar by many notches – way above the quality level of most other hypotheses on the market. This book is a delight as it takes us up close and personal to the theater of Creole formation, from Africa to the Americas … original and insightful … This book is a refreshing contribution to Creole studies and beyond, with many enriching insights for linguistic theory and for theories of language contact and language change writ large.

Using a multidisciplinary approach, this book explores how multilingualism is shaped by a variety of factors.

repetitive or not, and can be uttered with different intonational ‘melodies’. ‘[This book] challenges serious scholars of language and social interaction with a rich, new and exquisitely contextual account of the work people do through their responses in real-time social interaction. Findings presented in the book are fully data-driven and compel us to critically re-envision the traditionally taken-for-granted notions that some utterances are ‘elliptical’ or ‘non-sentential’. [The authors] demonstrate that response formats are artfully and precisely fitted to their contexts, and that the attested composition of utterances results from the limited range of meaning-making potentials opened up in the course of developing sequences of action. The presentation of findings, representing a new standard of methodological and theoretical integrity, is tightly articulated with forty years of research on language form and interactional sequence. Future research on sequence organization and action formats must take this book as a fundamental reference point, including the cross-linguistic expansion of this project, which the authors enthusiastically invite.’ Cecilia E. Ford, University of Wisconsin, Madison Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics, 31

The Colloquia of the Hermeneumata Pseudodositheana Edited by Eleanor Dickey University of Reading

The Colloquia are manuals written to help ancient Greeks and Romans get around in each other’s languages; they contain examples of how to conduct activities like shopping, banking, visiting friends, hosting parties, taking oaths, winning lawsuits, using the public baths, having fights, making excuses and going to school. They thus offer a unique glimpse of daily life in the early Roman Empire and are an important resource for understanding ancient culture. They have, however, been unjustly neglected because until now there were no modern editions of the

The Cambridge Handbook of English Historical Linguistics Edited by Merja Kytö Uppsala Universitet, Sweden

and Päivi Pahta University of Tampere, Finland

English historical linguistics is a subfield of linguistics which has developed theories and methods for exploring the history of the English language. This Handbook provides an account of state-of-the-art research on this history. It offers an in-depth survey of materials, methods, and language-theoretical models used to study the long diachrony of English. The frameworks covered include corpus linguistics, historical sociolinguistics, historical pragmatics and manuscript studies, among others. The chapters, by leading experts, examine the interplay of language theory and empirical data throughout, critically assessing the work in the field. Of particular importance are the diverse data sources which have become increasingly available in electronic form, allowing the discipline to develop in new directions. The Handbook offers access to the rich and many-faceted spectrum of work in English historical linguistics, past and present, and will be useful for researchers and students interested in hands-on research on the history of English. Advance praise: ‘Written by the foremost experts in the field, this timely handbook provides a fresh and exciting overview of methodologies and approaches in the diachronic study of the English language.’ Andreas H. Jucker, University of Zurich

Foreword by Fred Genesee McGill University, Montréal

The study of families and educators sustaining children’s linguistic resources is a novelty in current educational research. This book presents new research findings and combines these with compelling firsthand accounts of success and concern from families and educators, making its content pertinent to a wide audience of researchers and practitioners. ‘The time for this book is now! It shares multilayered data from a robust research study and will contribute much to the literature and to an improved understanding of the education of multilingual students. Since reading the book I have found myself quoting sections in my conversations with practicing teachers, graduate students, and parents who are raising their children multilingually.’ Lori Helman, University of Minnesota 2015 228 x 152 mm 342pp 2 b/w illus.  21 tables   978-1-107-04244-5 Hardback £69.99 / US$110.00 For all formats available, see

Language Evolution The Windows Approach Rudolf Botha University of Stellenbosch, South Africa

The lack of direct evidence about language evolution makes it notoriously difficult to study. The Windows Approach gleans indirect evidence about it from phenomena such as fossil skulls, prehistoric shell-beads, homesign systems, pidgin languages and motherese. Botha elucidates, analyses and appraises this approach in detail. Advance praise: ‘In 2006, Rudie Botha launched an all out attack on the legitimacy of the claim that the South African archaeological site of Blombos had evidence of ‘fully syntactic’ language 75,000 years ago. No one has been able to counter the logic of his argument, and this book applies that same relentless, illuminating logic to other claims in the study of language origins. In doing so, Botha shows just how carefully any claims must be justified, and just how powerful his Windows Approach is. Students and researchers in archaeology, primatology, linguistics, and comparative ethology cannot ignore this book.’ Iain Davidson, University of New England Approaches to the Evolution of Language

University of Calgary

and James A. Woodbridge

Drawing upon the perspectives of neuroscience, philosophy, psychology and law in explaining and assessing human thought and behavior, Free Will and the Brain provides a distinctive approach to the perennial question of whether we have free will and can be responsible for our actions.

University of Nevada, Las Vegas

‘If ever a subject needed multi-author perspectives, it is this one. Free Will and the Brain fulfils a crucial need by bringing together the expertise of philosophers, psychiatrists, neuroscientists and legal experts. It deals with most aspects of this vast subject, but is particularly strong on brain disorders that disrupt free will and their implications for legal decisions. I strongly recommend it!’ Peter Clarke, neuroscientist and former Associate Professor, University of Lausanne 2015 228 x 152 mm 308pp 2 b/w illus.   978-1-107-03603-1 Hardback £65.00 / US$99.00 For all formats available, see

Dilemmas The Tarner Lectures 1953 Gilbert Ryle

Gilbert Ryle’s classic book is an exploration of the apparent dilemmas that arise from everyday ways of thinking, showing that these conflicts are in fact false dilemmas. Presented in a fresh series livery, featuring a specially commissioned Preface written by Barry Stroud, it has been revived for a new generation of readers. ‘The great merit of this book is that it grasps philosophical problems at that critical stage when they are just casting off their connexions with everyday life, just about to launch on their long academic flight, and that it attempts to deal with them then and there, before they can become airborne. Brisk, homely and almost practical, it really challenges everyone to try to be his own philosopher … the peculiar, penetrating simplicity of this kind of philosophy is exceedingly hard to achieve.’ The Times Literary Supplement Cambridge Philosophy Classics

Advance praise: ‘This important new book brings Putnam’s famous brain-in-a-vat argument bang up to date. Cutting edge papers by some of today’s leading philosophers show how the argument provides a powerful lens through which to examine central topics such as semantic externalism, self-knowledge, the nature of justification, and metaphysical realism.’ Åsa Wikforss, Stockholms Universitet Classic Philosophical Arguments

Cambridge Handbooks in Language and Linguistics

Linguistic Multi-Competence Editors: Vivian Cook, University of Newcastle upon Tyne Li Wei, Birkbeck, University of London With contributions from a team of international experts, this handbook presents the innovative multi-competence approach to speakers who know more than one language.

• Integrates a wide range of research areas, from sociology to psychology, language teaching to heritage languages and beyond

• Challenges the accepted view of native speaker norm in psychology and second language acquisition
