Analyzing Syntax  A Lexical-Functional Approach, Kroeger, Paul
2 Analyzing Syntax A Lexical-Functional Approach
Kroeger, Paul
United Kingdom Cambridge University Press 27/May/2004 0521016541 / 9780521016544 11 tables 340 Analyzing Syntax: A Lexical-Functional Approach is a comprehensive and accessible textbook on syntactic analysis, designed for students of linguistics at advanced undergraduate or graduate level. Working within the 'Lexical Functional Grammar' (LFG) approach, it provides students with a framework for analyzing and describing grammatical structure, using extensive examples from both European and non-European languages. Topics covered include: tests for constituency, passivization and other relation-changing processes, reflexive pronouns, the control relation, Topic and Focus, relative clauses and Wh-questions, causative constructions, serial verbs, 'quirky case', and ergativity. As well as building on what linguists have learned about language in general, particular attention is paid to the unique features of individual languages. While its primary focus is on syntactic structure, the book also deals with aspects of meaning, function and word-structure that are directly relevant to syntax. Clearly organised into topics, this textbook is ideal for one-semester courses in syntax and grammatical analysis. (ISBN: 9780521016544 - When referring to this item please quote our stock ID: 7071)

Electronic Discourse  Linguistic Individuals in Virtual Space, Davis, Boyd H.,  Brewer, Jeutonne
5 Electronic Discourse Linguistic Individuals in Virtual Space
Davis, Boyd H., Brewer, Jeutonne
United States State University of New York Press 5/Sep/1997 0791434761 / 9780791434765 Illustrations 196 Investigates the new world of computer conferencing and details how writers use language when their social interaction is exclusively enacted through text on screens.

This book examines interactive electronic discourse, exposing use of language that has the immediacy characteristic of speech and the permanence characteristic of writing. The authors created an asynchronous mainframe conference for language and linguistics classes in which they presented students with the task of analyzing the language used in original newspaper reports of the 1960s Civil Rights Sitlns. The authors observed how students wrote to each other across a wide range of social and virtual settings, how they built a real, if short-lived, community within and across campus boundaries, and how they handled conflict while avoiding confrontation on sensitive issues of race and power. The result is a study that details how people use language when their social interaction is exclusively enacted through text on screens, and how their exchange is affected by computer conferencing.

The students who wrote in the electronic conferences faced two interrelated tasks: participating in a multiparty "conversation" and negotiating the individual identities they presented to one another in their virtual space. Individual writers used their own idiolects to influence the form and content of electronic discourse, adapting their own tacit knowledge of conversational strategies and written discourse to the new medium, as they created a real, although temporary, community.

Frontiers of Phonology  Atoms, Structures and Derivations, Durand, Jacques,  Katamba, Francis
12 Frontiers of Phonology Atoms, Structures and Derivations
Durand, Jacques, Katamba, Francis
United Kingdom Taylor & Francis Ltd 30/Apr/1995 0582082676 / 9780582082670 Illustrations 432 Frontiers of Phonology is a collection of essays that present a selective overview of trends in the linguistic analysis of sound structure. The essays are written by specialists from Europe, Canada and the USA and discuss issues from three broad areas of phonology: the nature and representation of phonological features; the role and structure of the skeletal tier and syllable structure; and the competing claims of derivational and declarative approaches to phonology. The book provides a forum for lively discussion of important theoretical topics from various standpoints including metrical and autosegmental phonology, dependency phonology and declarative phonology. The contributors, who are protagonists of these different standpoints, compare notes and show the merits of their different approaches. The essays discussing derivational issues offer an excellent introduction to the area of constraints based phonology, and by covering the phonology of many languages the book provides an understanding of how human languages in general use sound.

Global Literacies and the World Wide Web, Hawisher, Gail E.,  Selfe, Cynthia L.
13 Global Literacies and the World Wide Web
Hawisher, Gail E., Selfe, Cynthia L.
United Kingdom Taylor & Francis Ltd 21/Oct/1999 041518942X / 9780415189422 4 black & white tables 312 The World Wide Web is transforming the way that information is distributed, received and acted upon. Global Literacies and the World Wide Web provides a critical examination of the new on line literacy practices and values, and how these are determined by national, cultural and educational contexts. Gail Hawisher and Cynthia L. Selfe have brought together scholars from around the world, including: Mexico, Hungary, Australia, Palau, Cuba, Scotland, Greece, Japan, Africa and the United States. Each represents and examines on line literacy practices in their specific culture. Global Literacies and the World Wide Web resists a romanticised and inaccurate vision of global oneness. Instead, this book celebrates the dynamic capacity of these new self defined literacy communities to challenge the global village myth with robust, hybrid redefintions of identity that honour ethnic, cultural, economic, historical, and ideological differences. This is a lively and original challenge to conventional notions of the relationship between literacy and technology.

United Kingdom John Wiley and Sons Ltd 30/Apr/1994 0631186913 / 9780631186915 Reprinted references, index 368 This text provides a succinct introduction to the field of pragmatics, the study of language from the point of view of its users - of the choices they make, the constraints they encounter in using language in social interaction and the effects their use of language has on other participants in an act of communication. Reviewing the work of Austin, Grice, Searle, Sacks and others, the book includes chapters on what we say when we do not say (explicitly) what we mean; on the regularities and irregularities of everyday conversation; on the social importance and the societal determination of even the least consciously proffered "act of language". It aims to introduce the reader to the complexities of language use, and the use of language for cognitive and social effect.
