Dear Readers, The upcoming year will mark the completion of the current stage of Mouton’s strategy to shed any remaining vestiges of ‘Eurocentricity’. This particular stage focused on expanding our offerings on languages of the Asia-Pacific region. Of particular mention are several new titles in the series Pacific Linguistics, including books on Tahitian, Owa, Garrwa, and Bilinarra. Among our many China-related titles are a new book series, Language Policies and Practices in China; two journals; and a host of new books on a variety of topics in Chinese linguistics including classifiers, tense and aspect, first- and second-language acquisition, and plurality. We will also be launching a landmark new reference series, the Handbooks of Japanese Language and Linguistics, which will cover all aspects of the Japanese language as well as the other indigenous languages of Japan: Ryukyuan, Ainu, and Japanese Sign Language. To complete the picture, the new Journal of South Asian Linguistics will replace our successful yearbook series on the topic.

Dictionaries & HSK

3 CommuniCations

5 Syntax

7 Phonology, PROSODY

9 Pragmatics & Semantics

Special focus on the Asia-Pacific region does not mean other regions are being neglected. The series Dialects of English, recently taken over by Mouton, will resume publication with titles on Irish English, New York City English, and Welsh English. We will also publish the first comprehensive grammars of Tundra Nenets (Siberia), Tommo So (Mali), and Hinuq (Daghestan), as well as a new grammar of Pashto. A new volume in our flagship handbook series HSK will highlight the Slavic languages, while another volume will focus on Dutch. Other new HSK titles include Body-Language-Communication and a second, thoroughly revised edition of the volume Syntax. A major new reference series, the Handbooks of Communication Science, will cover all aspects of this sister discipline of linguistics in 26 comprehensive volumes. Finally, following the success of a few recent textbooks, Mouton will be expanding its offerings with new textbooks on such varied topics such as English syntax, forensic semiotics, contrastive linguistics, and semantics. A second, revised edition of the best-selling Statistics for Linguistics with R will also be published. We hope you will enjoy this bouquet of new offerings. Happy browsing! Cordially,

Die slavischen Sprachen / The Slavic Languages Ein internationales Handbuch zu ihrer Struktur, ihrer Geschichte und ihrer Erforschung / An International Handbook of their Structure, their History and their Investigation   

The handbook is intended to present a well balanced general view of the current state of Slavic linguistics and the Slavic languages with regard to their synchronic and diachronic description. In contrast to previous undertakings of a similar nature, this handbook is not intended to be a grammar with chapters on individual languages. Its length, the extensive scope of its subject matter, the systematic approach and the method of description which reflect the current state of Slavic Linguistics set this handbook apart from others. Key features: up-to-date and complete handbook includes both an overview and detailed discussions gathers together a great number of renowned experts Tilman Berger, University of Tübingen, Germany; Karl Gutschmidt, Humboldt University Berlin, Germany; Sebastian Kempgen, University of Bamberg, Germany; Peter Kosta, University Potsdam, Germany.

An International Handbook of Linguistic Variation

eBook RRP € 329.00 / *US$ 461.00

  

The dimensions of time and space fundamentally cause and shape the variability of all human language. To reduce investigation of this insight to manageable proportions, researchers have traditionally concentrated on the „deepest“ dialects. But it is increasingly apparent that, although most people still speak with a distinct regional coloring, the new mobility of speakers in recently industrialized and postindustrial societies and the efflorescence of communication technologies cannot be ignored. This has given rise to a reconsideration of the relationship between geographical place and cultural space, and the fundamental link between language and a spatially bounded territory. Language and Space: An International Handbook of Linguistic Variation seeks to take full account of these developments in a comprehensive, theoretically rich way. The introductory volume examines the concept of space and linguistic approaches to it, the structure and dynamics of language spaces, and relevant research methods. A second volume offers the first thorough exploration of the interplay between linguistic investigation and cartography, and subsequent volumes uniformly document the state of research into the spatial dimension of particular language groupings. Jürgen Erich Schmidt, University of Marburg, Germany.

   Frans Hinskens, Johan Taeldeman (Eds.) Volume 3: Dutch An International Handbook on Linguistic Variation   

This new handbook aims at a state-of-the-art overview of both earlier and recent research into older, newer and emerging non-standard varieties of Dutch. The discussion concerns (among other things) theoretical embedding, potential interdisciplinary connections and the methodology of the studies at issue, keeping in mind comparability and generalizability of the findings. It should present general concepts and approaches in the relatively broad domain of Dutch variation linguistics and the main actual developments in different varieties of Dutch.

This handbooks series aims to integrate knowledge of communication structures and processes. It is global in orientation, dedicated to cultural and epistemological diversity as well as different scholarly approaches. The series features volumes on ‚messages, codes and channels‘, ‚mode of address: communication situations and context‘, ‚methodology in communication science‘ and ‚application areas‘. The latter features volumes devoted to a large range of specialist areas of communication science. The series as a whole aims at meeting the needs of undergraduates, postgraduates, academics and researchers across the area of communication studies. Peter J. Schulz, University of Lugano, Switzerland; Paul Cobley, London Metropolitan University, UK.

  

Visual Communication   

The primary goal of the volume on „Visual Communication“ is to provide a collection of high quality, accessible papers that offer an overview of the different academic approaches to Visual Communication, the different theoretical perspectives on which they are based, the methods of analysis used and the different media and genre that have come under analysis.  There is not such existing volume that draws together this range of closely related material generally found in much less related areas of publishing, across semiotics, art history, design, new media theory, etc.  The volume is planned to have a total of 34 individual chapters that are organized into two sections: theories and methods, and areas of visual analysis.   These are all to be written by quality theorists and researchers who will be asked to produce their work with a view that it should be accessible to non-specialists in their own field while at the same time maintaining a high quality of work.   The volume will contain an introduction which plots and locates the different approaches contained in it within broader developments and history of approaches to visual communication across different disciplines as each has attempted to define its terrain sometimes through

Interpersonal Communication   

The proposed Handbook reflects substantive research areas in terms of both communication functions and the specialized contexts within which interpersonal communication has been studied. Main areas of interest are: social influence processes, the role communication plays in the development, maintenance and decline of close personal relationships, nonverbal communication and the role it plays in social interaction, cognitive approaches to interpersonal communication, study of communication and conflict, bargaining and negotiation and social networks, health communication, organizational socialization and supervisorsubordinate communication, and technologicallymediated interpersonal communication. In addition, two chapters will be devoted to methods used to study social interaction and statistical approaches to the analysis of interaction data. Because social interaction data are by their nature correlated, special methods are necessary to tease out effects that arise from individual differences and those that emerge from mutual influence processes occurring during interactions. The handbook will contain 23 articles written by widely recognized and highly respected scholars.

Mediatization of Communication   

This handbook will search for dynamic encounters between researchers that may have different approaches to processes of mediatization. It will not impose one definition of mediatization but rather foster a variety of definitions of and discussion about this contested concept to be played out among the chapters and their authors. However, the editorial range is limited to scholars who have applied the term ‚mediatization‘ (or the related ‚medialization‘, ‚mediazation‘ – or ‚mediation‘ in the meaning of socio-cultural change or transformation related to the media.) The volume will consist of three parts: Part I:  Modernity and Mediatization, Part II: Modes of Mediatization, and Part III: Mediatized Areas.

Vocative! Addressing between System and Performance

Classifier Structures in Mandarin Chinese

  

  

  

Communications is an established forum for scholarship and academic debate in the field of communication science and research from a European perspective. The journal encompasses the entire field of communication science as its domain of interest. Contributions published in the journal cover a wide range of subfields in communication science, including interpersonal communication, mass communication and communication theory.

Vocatives have rarely been comprehensively discussed in their various facets. With 12 contributions covering the diversity of vocative marking, structures, and functions, as well as the relevance of vocatives for theoretical and methodological reasoning, this volume contributes to closing a significant gap in linguistic research. It provides a detailed picture of the vocative as a structure between ‚system‘ and ‚performance‘.

   Increased IMPACT FACTOR 2012: 0.239

Barbara Sonnenhauser, University of München, Germany; Patricia Noel, Otto-FriedrichUniversität Bamberg, Germany.

In Classifier Structure in Mandarin Chinese, Niina Ning Zhang proposes a new approach to the countmass contrast, and the properties and functions of classifiers when they occur with numerals, with various quantifiers, in compounds, and in reduplicative forms. The new approach makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the existence of classifiers in numeral classifier languages. The investigation also uncovers that certain non-classifier languages lack only one type of classifiers, whereas other non-classifier languages may lack other types of classifiers.

New Perspectives on Chinese Syntax

Greek Interjections

Tense and Aspect in Han Period Chinese

Syntax, Semantics and Pragmatics

A Linguistic Analysis of the ’

  

  

Interjections in Ancient Greek have long lacked a comprehensive account, despite their frequent occurrence in major texts. The present study of their semantics and pragmatics, encompassing all items encountered in Greek drama from the 5th century BC, applies a moderate minimalism, data-driven method. Readers are offered a thorough and detailed study of this elusive, and in several respects deviant, class of linguistic items.

Many grammatical issues of Archaic and Medieval Chinese still lack a comprehensive analysis. The present book provides the first thorough investigation of the syntactic and the semantic constraints of the linguistic categories Tense, and Aspect, and their relation with the Lexical Aspect of the verb in Han period Chinese and thus covers a crucial linguistic domain of a language with a very restricted verbal morphology.

Lars Nordgren, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden.

  

  

In the last thirty years, Mandarin Chinese has been playing an increasingly important role in general linguistics and has become a „must“ for everyone interested in crosslinguistic comparison and syntactic theorizing. The proposed book aims at demystifying Chinese.

Laboratory Phonology

Pragmatics of Speech Actions

Studies in the Evolution of Languages and Techniques   

Botanist, linguist, ethnologist, and historian of techniques, A.-G. Haudricourt is best known for his seminal articles on the origin of tone in East Asian languages. This volume presents his most important articles, and excerpts from his book on the history of the plow, in English translation, with epilogues on their current relevance. Haudricourt‘s methodology, applying insights from across the sciences, is a model for researchers.

Journal of the Association for Laboratory Phonology   

Laboratory phonology represents the scientific study of the elements of spoken and signed language and their organization, grammatical function and role in speech communication. The Laboratory Phonology journal – the official journal of the LabPhon Association – publishes research on phonology from a range of disciplinary perspectives including linguistics, psychology, speech and hearing science, computer science and other related fields.

  

This volume provides extensive critical information about current discussions in the study of speech actions. Its central reference point is classic speech act theory, but attention is also paid to nonstandard developments and other approaches that study speech as action. The first part of the volume deals with main concepts, methodological issues and phenomena common to different kinds of speech action. The second part deals with specific kinds of speech actions, including types of illocutionary acts and some discourse and conversational phenomena.

Pragmatics of Discourse

(Im)Politeness Implicatures

Discourse is language as it occurs, in any form or context, beyond the speech act. It may be written or spoken, monological or dialogical, but there is always a communicative aim or purpose. The present volume provides systematic orientation in the vast field of studying discourse from a pragmatic perspective. It first gives an overview of a range of approaches developed for the analysis of discourse, including, among others, conversation analysis, genre analysis, functional discourse grammar and corpus-driven approaches. The focus is furthermore on functional units in discourse, such as discourse markers, speech act sequences, interactional moves and phases, and also silence. Finally, the volume examines different types of discourse (e.g. narratives, service encounters, press releases) in various discourse domains (e.g. medical contexts, the media, education). Each article surveys the current state of the art of the respective topic area while also presenting new research findings.

The originality of this volume lies on the fact that the author does not apply or test existing theories of politeness but attempts his own exploration by bringing together two highly researched but also highly controversial concepts, those of politeness and implicature, and by investigating their relationship. Recent research into politeness phenomena, discontent with more traditional pragmatic (speech act theory and maxim-based) approaches, has turned into social theory to account for politeness phenomena, thus relegating pragmatics into a secondary position. This book is a welcome attempt to redress the balance and bridge the gap between the two, constituting a fresh look at the issues involved.

While lying has been of interest to philosophers and in everyday life, there has been a lack of genuine linguistic analyses of lying. In this book, lying is viewed as a speech act of insincere assertion, misrepresenting truth in order to deceive. This book takes a moderate relativist stand by showing that the possibility of lying is built into language, allowing speakers to manipulate the representation of truth according to certain social goals.

The SemanticsPragmatics Controversy

Two-dimensional Semantics

Thomas Ede Zimmermann, Wolfgang Sternefeld

  

  

Currently, there is a great number of approaches to the semantics-pragmatics distinction on the market. This book is unique in that it offers a comprehensive overview, comparison and critical evaluation of these approaches. At the same time, it covers a wide range of the key current topics in semantics and pragmatics (e.g., the saying/meaning distinction, minimalism vs. contextualism, unarticulated constituents, indexicalism, (generalised) conversational implicatures). As such it addresses both undergraduate and postgraduate students of linguistics/philosophy of language.

This book argues that while some adjuncts and complements contribute regular assertions, others operate in the conventional implicature dimension, which expresses additional side comments. This distinction of semantic dimension is shown as necessary to account for regular vs. speech act uses of ‘weil’ vs. ‘denn’ (because) in German, for regular vs. relevance conditionals, as well as certain sentence adverbs. Further, a new two-dimensional analysis is crucial to account for the differences between parenthetical-like sliftings and true verbsecond embedded clauses in German.

Introduction to Semantics An Essential Guide to the Composition of Meaning   

This textbook introduces undergraduate students of language and linguistics to the basic ideas, insights, and techniques of contemporary semantic theory. The book starts with everyday observations about word meaning and use primarily and then gradually zooms in on the question of how speakers manage to meaningfully communicate with phrases, sentences, and texts they have never come across before. Extensive English examples provide ample illustration. Thomas Ede Zimmermann, Goethe University Frankfurt; Wolfgang Sternefeld, University of Tübingen.

Cognitive Linguistics and Translation

Pluricentricity

Linguistic Relativity

Advances in Some Theoretical Models and Applications

The studies collected in this volume explore the sociocultural, conceptual and structural dimensions of variation and change within pluricentric languages, with specific emphasis on the relationship between national varieties. The volume describes patterns of phonetic, lexical and morphosyntactic variation, and language attitudes. It brings together Cognitive Linguistics and sociolinguistics and makes use of advanced empirical methods. The volume addresses a wider audience of scholars including linguists, sociologists, anthropologists, and language planners and teachers.

  

This volume contains a collection of papers which discuss the contributions of cognitive linguistics to translation. It constitutes the first attempt to unify previous isolated works on both disciplines. The papers compiled in the present volume purport to investigate the many fruitful manners in which cognitive linguistics can expand further on the formulation of a cognitive translation theory. They provide a picture of the different theoretical and applied models which originate at the crossroads between both disciplines, and suggest ways in which they can take advantage of the synergy between them.

Lexical Bootstrapping

The Nature of Rules, Regularities and Units in Language

Metaphor and Metonomy through Time and Cultures

The Role of Lexis and Semantics in Child Language Development   

  

This volume offers new insights into figurative language and its pervasive role as a factor of linguistic change. The case studies included in this book explore some of the different ways new metaphoric and metonymic expressions emerge and spread among speech communities, and how these changes can be related to the need to encode ongoing social and cultural processes in the language. They cover a wide series of languages and historical stages.

The internal bootstrapps for establishing the grammatical system of a human language build an essential topic in language acquisition research. The discussion of the last 20 years came up with the Lexical Bootstrapping Hypothesis which assigns lexical development the role of the central bootstrapping process. The volume presents work from different theoretical perspectives evaluating the strength and weaknesses of this hypothesis.

The Expression of Gender

Reinventing Structuralism

Understanding Relative Clauses

What Sign Relations Reveal About Consciousness

A Usage-Based View on the Processing of Complex Constructions

  

  

Structuralism was abandoned long before its potential as a cognitive science could be realized.  Reviving it with what we know today about the self-organizing capacity of living systems provides new insights into the role of sign relations in the evolution of higher-order consciousness.  Treating the signs of language as inherently evolutionary properties of mind offers a window into the constitution of consciousness at the most profound level.

The present study offers a usage-based account of how humans comprehend complex linguistic structures. It proposes a theory of constructional access, which treats syntactic patterns as complex and abstract signs. In this view, syntactic processing is subject to the very same dynamics as lexical processing and should yield the same type of frequency effects.

Linguistics, Psycholinguistics

  

There is discussion of the appropriate use of gendered pronouns; the gender of borrowings may arouse the curiosity of first language speakers. But given its links to the real world, gender is a feature that speakers are partly aware of. The authors of the volume take seven complementary perspectives on gender, from the myth of ‘natural’ gender to Konso, a language with a challenging gender/ number system.

A Grammar of Tommo So

A Grammar of Hinuq

A Grammar of Nuosu

This volume provides the first full description of the grammatical structure of Tommo So, a language of Mali, West Africa. It is one of about twenty languages of the Dogon people, best known for their masked dances and distinctive cliff villages. Like most African languages, Tommo So is tonal and displays a rich system of grammatical tone, wherein the tonal realization of a word depends on its syntactic context. In addition to a grammatical description, this book offers a wide range of naturalistic texts, making it of value to linguists and anthropologists alike.

This is the first thorough description of the NakhDaghestanian language Hinuq. Hinuq has about 600 speakers living primarily in a single village in the Caucasus mountains in southern Russia (Daghestan). During several fieldwork trips, the author collected an extensive corpus of texts. Based on the data, Forker provides a comprehensive analysis of Hinuq grammar with reference to other NakhDaghestanian languages, to Caucasian studies and to typological and general linguistic topics.

This is the first modern grammar of Nuosu written in English. Nuosu belongs to a little known section of Tibeto-Burman. The 2.5 Million ethnic Nuosu are part of the Yi nationality and live in Sichuan (China). This grammar informs Tibeto-Burman linguists, typologists, scholars of language contact and foreign learners of Nuosu.

A Grammar of (Western) Garrwa

The book is the first substantial description of Tundra Nenets, a Uralic language spoken in Western Siberia and the north of European Russia. It provides a lasting piece of documentation of this highly endangered language. For a language as little researched as Nenets, any aspect of grammar may prove to be of potential significance for the field of linguistics and turn out to be theoretically challenging.

Grammar Without Grammaticality

On Ancient Grammars of Space

Yiddish Language Structures

Growth and Limits of Grammatical Precision

Linguistic Research on the Expression of Spatial Relations and Motion in Ancient Languages

  

Grammar is said to be about defining all and only the ‘good’ sentences of a language, implying that there are other, ‘bad’ sentences – but it is hard to pin those down.  A century ago, grammarians did not think that way, and they were right:  linguists can and should dispense with ‘starred sentences’.  Corpus data support a different model:  individuals develop positive grammatical habits of growing refinement, but nothing is ever ruled out.  The contrasting models entail contrasting pictures of human nature; our final chapter shows that grammatical theory is not value-neutral but has an ethical dimension.

  

This volume presents new research by the TOPOI group “Spaces in Language” on the expression of spatial relations in ancient languages. The six articles in this volume discuss static and dynamic aspects of the spatial grammars of Ancient to Modern Greek, Akkadian, Hittite, and Ancient Egyptian, as well as field data on eight modern languages. All ancient language data are fully explained in linguistic glosses. Taken together, these contributions extend the scope of research on spatial grammar back to the third millennium BCE.

  

This volume presents new studies on structural aspects of the Yiddish language system(s) in the light of modern linguistic theories. The occasion which led to the creation of this collection was the international conference on Yiddish Language Structures held at the University of Regensburg from 30 November–1 December 2009.

An Empirical Study of Chinese Dialects   

This comprehensive study concentrates particularly on the use of a closed set of motion verbs in five of the major dialects, including Mandarin, Wú, Hakka, Mǐn and Cantonese. The author shows that these dialects form a continuum with some exhibiting more characteristics of a verb-framed language than the others. The phenomenon reflects the various stages of typological transformation and grammaticalization that the dialects have undergone.

A Cross-Linguistic Study   

Bringing together the research fields of sign language linguistics and information structure, this book focuses on the realization of modal and focus particles in German Sign Language, Sign Language of the Netherlands, and Irish Sign Language. The study analyzes professionally elicited data with regard to nonmanual features expressed by articulators such as the body, head, and face, and accounts for the results within existing theoretical models. The analyses contribute to recent debates about information structure and the syntax-prosody interface. Thus, this book is of special interest to both sign and spoken language linguists. Annika Herrmann, Göttingen University, Germany.

  

Since the 1970s functionalism has been attached to a variety of movements and models making major contributions to linguistic theory. Over the past decades it has gained more ground, and we now have a substantial body of literature from various perspectives making a positive impact on the field of linguistics. This collection of papers brings leading scholars in this area together to provide recognition to the impact of functionalism on current linguistic theory highlighting its nature as a leading force within linguistics and beyond and defining its current and future directions.

Beyond ‘Any’ and ‘Ever’ New Explorations in Negative Polarity Sensitivity   

The grammar of negative polarity items is one of the challenges for linguistic theory. NPIs cross-cut all traditional categories in grammar and semantics, yet their distribution is by no means arbitrary. Theories of NPI licensing have been proposed in terms of syntax, semantics, and pragmatics – each with its own merits and problems. The volume comprises state-of-the-art studies and suggests an interpolation approach to NPI licensing.

This book is dedicated to Anna Siewierska, who died, far too young, in 2011. It gathers contributions by the foremost scholars in the field of linguistic typology. They discuss topics that are prominent in Anna‘s work, taking either a typological or a more language specific perspective. Mindful of Anna‘s last monograph, Person, the majority of the articles discuss person forms, reference tracking and related issues. Further topics are grammatical alignment, voice, ditransitives, and word order.    Keywords Linguistic Typology; Person and Pronouns; Grammatical Alignment; Grammatical Voice Language German Date of publication 3rd quarter 2013

Linguistic Typology

Prepositional Clauses in Spanish

‘Come’ and ‘Go’ in Grammatic Theory

  

Linguistic Typology distinguishes itself as a forum for the typological community, catering to its special professional needs. In particular, these concern the empirical dimensions of the typological enterprise and the ensuing demands to coordinate research and keep track of a profusion of data and results. Therefore, Lingustic Typology specifically encourages informed dialogue and the proper recording of past and present achievements.    Language English

A Diachronic and Comparative Syntactic Study   

This book presents a historical and comparative syntactic analysis of Spanish prepositional clauses – traditionally called complement and adverbial clauses. This study examines the properties behind the evolution of clauses introduced by prepositions in Spanish, including clausal nominality, argumenthood, and preposition optionality. It devotes special attention to the nature and constraints of comparable constructions in other past and present European languages, particularly Portuguese, French, and Italian. Manuel Delicado Cantero, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.

  

This edition brings together some lesser known grammaticalization paths travelled by ‘come’ and ‘go’ in familiar and less familiar languages. No single book volume has been dedicated to the topic of grammatical targets different from tense and aspect so far. This study will increase our insight in grammaticalization processes in general as they force us to rethink certain aspects of grammaticalization.

Zeitschrift für celtische Philologie   

Folia Linguistica

The Zeitschrift für celtische Philologie (ZcP) was founded in 1897 by Kuno Meyer and Ludwig Christian Stern. It is thus the oldest significant journal of Celtic studies still in existence. In the early period, its focus was Celtic (mainly Irish) philology and „linguistic monuments“ to mainland Celtic (mainly Gallic) languages. Later, these areas were extended to include new Celtic languages and typological questions.

A History of the Chambers Dictionary   

So far there have been few attempts at a systematic study of the history of popular dictionaries. A dictionary like Chambers deserves special attention because of its long tradition that goes back to the nineteenth century. This book traces the development of the Chambers Dictionary from its origins to the present time by comparing successive editions of the dictionary. This comparative approach will provide scholars and students with insights into the Chambers lexicographers’ work, the goals they aimed to achieve, and the problems they had to face when revising the dictionary.

Aggregating Dialectology, Typology, and Register Analysis Linguistic Variation in Text and Speech   

This book is concerned with the quantitative, usage based, and aggregational study of linguistic variation. Even though dialectologists, register analysts, typologists, and quantitative linguists deal with linguistic variation, there has been little interaction across these fields. The contributions, written by renowned specialists in their subfields, demonstrate that there is mutual inspiration by thinking outside the disciplinary box.

The L2 Acquisition of Spanish Subjects

Research in Chinese as a Second Language

Multiple Perspectives   

This volume has two principle objectives: the first is to understand what it is that L2 learners are capable of acquiring in terms of subject expression in Spanish. The second aim is to identify the distinct contributions of each theoretical model and the like findings among them to discover common ground among varying perspectives in L2 acquisition research. This examination of the diverse body of research considers a wider range of universal properties of language, thus bringing us closer to a unified account of the L2 acquisition of Spanish subject expression. Margaret Lubbers Quesada, University of Georgia, USA.

  

The rapidly growing interest in Chinese language teaching has not resulted in the development of a strong research framework for the discipline. The book addresses this gap by drawing together research from international scholars working in the field of Chinese as a second language research. The volume is organized in three sections: Research Base for Practice, Integrating Culture and Language and Acquisition of Language Structures. One of the central contributions of the book is that each paper brings together theory and practice. Thus the book is recommended to both researchers and language practitioners.

International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching

Journal of Politeness Research

  

  

IRAL is devoted to problems of general and applied linguistics in their various forms. Its focus of interest lies in areas of research which concern first- and second-language acquisition (including sign language and gestural systems). Contributions cover topics such as naturalistic and instructed language learning, language loss, bilingualism, language contact, language for specific purposes, language technology and mother-tongue education.

The Journal of Politeness Research broadens and sharpens the understanding of the nature of politeness by providing a much-needed forum for synergies to develop between researchers approaching politeness from different disciplinary angles. The journal also strengthens and widens the existing cross-cultural and intercultural body of politeness research by encouraging new contributions from lesser-studied cultures and languages.

Constructing the Heritage Language Learner Knowledge, Power and New Subjectivities   

Though often treated as an objective category, heritage language learner is a social construct contested by researchers, government officials, school administrators, and students themselves. Based on ethnographic fieldwork at a Japanese language school in the US, the book examines the construction of the heritage language learner, viewing the notion as a site of negotiation regarding the legitimate knowledge of language and ways of belonging.

The Republic of Ireland   

This volume continues the Dialects of English series, considering the establishment of English in what is now the Republic of Ireland. Discussions of phonology, syntax, the lexicon, and discourse focus on traditional dialect, with further reference to colloquial Irish English, the use of dialect in literature, and the standard language. Irish English – forged in part by an ever-changing relationship with the Irish language – is considered in its local, national, and international aspects. Jeffrey L. Kallen, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

  

This book is the first to examine the English spoken in New York City comprehensively, including pronunciation, grammar, and discourse. Using sources from classic studies to original data, Newman describes New Yorkers‘ speech in a way that is linguistically rigorous yet accessible to nonspecialists. The book also shows how the linguistic similarities and differences among New Yorkers are rooted in social, cultural, and historical factors.

Sign Language Research, Uses and Practices Crossing Views on Theoretical and Applied Sign Language Linguistics   

Sign linguistics cannot be separated from deaf community practices, especially with regard to education and interpretation. This book brings together work on sign language interpreting, the use of spoken and sign language with CI children and early language development in children exposed to both a spoken and sign language. In addition, it includes papers addressing aspects of sign language structure and methodological issues in sign language research. This book has relevance for those teaching and learning sign languages, for professional and student interpreters and for teachers of the deaf.

Semiotics and Documentary Film The Living Sign in the Cinema   

This volume reintroduces Peircean ideas within documentary studies. Taking from Peirce‘s semeiotic and parallel ideas within recent visual anthropology, it defends documentary practice as a vital form of human inquiry. Through the work of three renowned filmmakers  – Jon Jost, Johan Van der Keuken, and Rithy Panh – this monograph attempts to reassert human agency within a global age, dominated by scepticism and an unquestioning subservience to mechanistic military technoculture.

Contact Languages A Comprehensive Guide   

This volume deals with several types of contact languages: pidgins, creoles, mixed languages, and multi-ethnolects. It also approaches contact languages from two perspectives: an historical linguistic perspective, more specifically from a viewpoint of genealogical linguistics, language descent and linguistic family tree models; and a sociolinguistic perspective, identifying specific social contexts in which contact languages emerge.

Borrowed Morphology   

The volume is highly relevant to the current regional and international discussion on endangered languages, language contact, documentation and areal typology. The publication is the outcome of a fruitful theoretical and methodological exchange between Latin American scholars and international scholars working in other regions. Most of the papers target Latin American languages. Additionally, new insight into the contact situations in Indonesia, Iran, Australia and Papua New Guinea is provided.

By integrating novel developments in both contact linguistics and morphological theory, this volume pursues the topic of borrowed morphology by recourse to sophisticated theoretical and methodological accounts. The authors address fundamental issues, such as the alleged universal dispreference for morphological borrowing and its effects on morphosyntactic complexity, and corroborate their analyses with strong cross-linguistic evidence.

Reflexively Speaking

A Study of Students in a Central European Context

Reflexive language – the capacity of language to speak about itself – is unique to human languages; yet little is known of its use in actual dialogue. Fundamental features of language are manifest in dialogic speech and in lingua francas. Both are taken on board in this book, which radically widens our conception of reflexivity in discourse. Reflexivity, or metadiscourse, is central to successful communication. It is also vital in understanding academic argumentation, essential to academic self-understanding, and at the same time it has wide applications.

Idiom and Metaphor   

This book investigates formal characteristics and discourse functions of linguistic creativity at the level of idioms in spoken ELF as represented in the Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English (VOICE). Building on the findings of previous ELF research, the book proposes that creativity might serve as a fundamental concept in accounting for the variation that seems to be central to describing and understanding English as a lingua franca.

This is a timely book on one of the most widely debated issues in applied linguistics: what is the social and cultural significance of English as a lingua franca for the internationally mobile students of the 21st century in Central Europe? Through an in-depth analysis of social practices, the book develops an exciting, innovative multilingual approach to out-of-class language use and language learning that engages students in the co-construction of identities. Apart from scholars, the book will appeal to policy makers and educators who are concerned with the internationalization of universities in Central Europe.

This book explores the nature and causes of misunderstandings in ELF interactions. It is based on a corpus of conversations between English speakers from south and east Asia that helps us investigate what causes misunderstandings, particularly the pronunciation, grammar, word choice, and discourse. The book also considers how such misunderstandings may be signalled and repaired. Finally, it discusses the implications for teaching English around the world and offers guidance to teachers in enabling their students to become highly intelligible.

Salience in Sociolinguistics

The Directionality of (Inter) subjec­tification in the English Noun Phrase

  

This work proposes a definition of the notion of salience in sociolinguistics. Salient linguistic variants are those that are easily picked up by the listeners, and these stand in opposition to `invisible‘ variants, which are, even if they also show complex social stratification, completely ignored. Taking a quantitative angle, this work sees salience as a function of relative frequency differences, giving it an empirically testable operationalisation.

DialectS of eNgliSh [Doe] The Dialects of English series provides concise, accessible, authoritative, and up-to-date documentation for varieties of English, including English-based pidgins and creoles, from all over the English-speaking world. Written by experts who have conducted first-hand research, the volumes are the most obvious starting point for readers who would like to know more about a particular regional, urban, or ethnic variety. The volumes follow a common structure, covering the context in which one clearly defined variety of English (or a number of closely related varieties) has been established as well as their phonetics and phonology, morphosyntax, lexis and social history. Each volume concludes with an annotated bibliography and some sample texts. Joan C. Beal, University of Sheffield, UK; Karen P. Corrigan, Edinburgh University, UK; Bernd Kortmann, Universität Freiburg, Germany.

This book is the first to examine the English spoken in New York City comprehensively, including pronunciation, grammar, discourse, and lexicon. Using sources from classic studies to original data, Newman describes the varied forms of New Yorkers’ speech in a way that is linguistically rigorous yet accessible to non-specialists. The book also shows how the linguistic similarities and differences among New Yorkers are rooted in social, cultural, and historical factors. This book will be of interest to sociolinguists and anyone interested in the English spoken in this great city.

Pittsburgh sPeech anD Pittsburghese

Linguists have sporadically noted peculiarities of pronunciation, lexis, and morphosyntax in the speech of European Americans in the Pittsburgh area, and Pittsburgh speech, locally known as “Pittsburghese,” has been a topic of discussion in the Pittsburgh area for decades. This variety has never before been systematically documented, however. The first and only scholarly book to describe Pittsburgh-area varieties of English, Pittsburgh Speech and Pittsburghese is an essential reference tool for anyone studying the dialect of the Pittsburgh area and the only textbook choice for anyone teaching about it.

A Grammar of Bilinarra An Australian Aboriginal Language of the Northern Territory   

This volume is a grammatical description of Bilinarra, an endangered Australian language. This work draws on materials collected over a 20-year period from the last first-language speakers of the language, most of whom have since passed away. Detailed attention is paid to all aspects of the grammar, with all examples provided with associated sound files.

Keywords Australian Aboriginal Languages,

The handbook series The World of Linguistics provides an up-to-date overview of linguistic work on the world‘s languages. The volumes cover the entire world divided into major geographical areas: Africa, Europe, North and Central America, South America, Central and Northern Asia, South Asia, East and Southeast Asia, Western Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. Each volume is written and edited by leading scholars on the languages and linguistics of the relevant area. In addition to linguistic classification, contact-induced areal phenomena are also discussed, as well as work in different disciplines, such as syntax, morphology, phonology, sociolinguistics, and computational linguistics. The aim is to present not only the major achievements in linguistic research in each geographical area, but also topics that are controversial or under-researched. The handbooks also provide extensive bibliographical information on major publications and databases that will enable the reader to delve further into the subject area. The World of Linguistics will remain an indispensable companion to the general linguist as well as the specialist for years to come.

Repairs The Added Value of Being Wrong   

Grammatical structures connect systems of thought and articulation, the conditions of which hardly seem to fit each other. Repairs are productive mechanisms that solve translation problems between modules or levels by adapting derivations or representations to requirements that have to be met unconditionally. Compensating for derivational and interpretive defects, repairs determine core properties of natural language grammars and their interfaces.

Strengthening the PRO Hypothesis

Order and Change

  

Generative theory has long sought to capture the syntax of Control, questioning whether the complement clause contains a syntactically projected thematic subject, whether such an argument undergoes displacement and, if so, where and why, and what role semantics may play. This book continues in this tradition, critically examining paradigms erroneously assumed to favor PRO analyses over Movement and implicit argument accounts. It offers novel data amenable to analysis only within a PRO approach – but one radically different from its predecessors in form and interpretation.

Diachronic Pathways and the SyntaxMorphology Interface

  

Across time and languages, we can observe that linguistic change is not random, but rather proceeds along recurrent patterns and pathways. Focusing on the history of the Germanic languages, this book explores how directions and tendencies in morphosyntactic change (word order change, the rise and fall of null subjects, and the development of paradigmatic syncretism) can be attributed to the interplay between language acquisition strategies and universal ‘hard wired’ principles of grammar.

Syntax; Semantics

The contributions in this volume shed new light on the discussion of whether the DP hypothesis applies universally or not. The issue is prominent not only for Slavic languages. Drawing on evidence from many other languages, Greek, East Asian, and Basque among them, the book has important implications for answering fundamental questions about the nature of definiteness and quantification.

Clausal Word Order and the Left Periphery in Galician   

The syntactic analysis of preverbal subjects has been the topic of debate for a wide variety of languages. This book establishes clausal word order preferences for Galician, a null-subject language of the Iberian Peninsula, based on quantitative and qualitative data. The experimental methodology and information structure assumptions employed create several testable predictions. The results suggest that, in a wide range of contexts, preverbal subjects behave like canonical elements, and not clitic left-dislocated (CLLD) elements.
