VA02-147 Language Rights, 4-Vols/Set.
  Tove Skutnabb-Kangas/ 9780415740821/ Price:£ 940.00
 
Book Cover Now, to enable researchers and advanced students to make sense of this vast literature, and the competing scholarly approaches, Routledge announces Language Rights, a new title in its Critical Concepts in Language Studies series. In four volumes, the set draws on a wide range of disciplines, including Sociolinguistics, Law, Anthropology, Education, Sociology, Political Science, and Economics. The learned editors have assembled both normative texts and studies of their practical applications, as well as more diverse interventions and interpretations. Volume I (‘Language Rights, Past and Present: From Minority Rights to Linguistic Human Rights’) presents some of the basic concepts in language rights and traces developments from treaties and national constitutions to human-rights principles, and conditions for the maintenance of languages. Volume II (‘Multilingualism, Education, and Language Rights Granted or Denied: Policies and Politics’), meanwhile, explores the tensions between homogenizing nation states and the status of indigenous and minority languages in education. The third volume in the collection (‘Language Rights and Endangered Languages’) brings together the best thinking on recent developments in language and cultural revitalization through community mobilization around language rights, especially in education, the preconditions for their success, their relationship to land rights and self-determination, and state responses to demands for language rights. Finally, Volume IV (‘Language Rights: Global and Regional Integration and Diversity Maintenance’) assesses ongoing trends of regional and global integration and questions the prospects for the world’s languages in the light of economic and cultural constraints.

SA02-460 Language Program Evaluation: Theory and Practice.
  Que, Lee X./ 9781682503454/ Price:US$ 145.00
 
Book Cover Evaluation is a systematic process which involves gathering information and giving feedback on the way the program works so that improvements can be made in an ongoing way. Like assessment, evaluation can be formative and summative. Formative evaluation is the regular ongoing reflection on how the program is going while summative evaluation occurs at the end of a program and provides a perspective on the effectiveness of the program. As educators, we reflect constantly on our daily work, often in an instinctive manner. While this is useful, the process can be more effective when it is systematic, explicit and articulated to others. Language Program Evaluation provides teachers, researchers, and administrators with a complete introduction to both qualitative and quantitative approaches to evaluating the effectiveness of their programs.

SA02-460 Applied Cognitive Linguistics: Theory and Language Acquisition.
  Collins, Jack/ 9781682503478/ Price:US$ 145.00
 
Book Cover Cognitive linguistics (CL) refers to the branch of linguistics that interprets language in terms of the concepts, sometimes universal, sometimes specific to a particular tongue, which underlie its forms. It is thus closely associated with semantics but is distinct from psycholinguistics, which draws upon empirical findings from cognitive psychology in order to explain the mental processes that underlie the acquisition, storage, production and understanding of speech and writing. This introductory book sketches the theoretical position of cognitive linguistics together with a number of practical features of the way in which research in cognitive linguistics is organized. The book deals with different conceptual phenomena that are recognized by cognitive linguistics.
   
SA02-460 Sociolinguistics and Corpus Linguistics.
  Eric, Anek/ 9781682503485/ Price:US$ 145.00
 
Book Cover Sociolinguistics is the descriptive study of the effect of any and all aspects of society, including cultural norms, expectations, and context, on the way language is used, and the effects of language use on society. Corpus linguistics is the analysis of naturally occurring language on the basis of computerized corpora. Usually, the analysis is performed with the help of the computer, i.e. with specialized software, and takes into account the frequency of the phenomena investigated. This book introduces students to the ways in which techniques from corpus linguistics can be used to aid sociolinguistic research. Corpus linguistics shares with variationist sociolinguistics a quantitative approach to the study of variation or differences between populations.

SA02-460 Corpus-Based Language Analysis.
  Yen, Lynne/ 9781682503607/ Price:US$ 145.00
 
Book Cover An investigation into the way people use language in speech and writing, this book introduces the corpus-based approach. This book illustrates the kinds of analyses and perspectives on language use possible from both corpus-based and corpus-driven approaches. Corpus linguistics is the study of language as expressed in corpora (samples) of “real world” text. The text-corpus method is a digestive approach for deriving a set of abstract rules, from a text, for governing a natural language, and how that language relates to and with another language; originally derived manually, corpora now are automatically derived from the source texts. Corpus linguistics proposes that reliable language analysis is more feasible with corpora collected in the field, in their natural contexts, and with minimal experimental-interference.
   
SA02-460 Translation and Linguistics.
  Hatim, Sara/ 9781682503614/ Price:US$ 145.00
 
Book Cover Translation is the communication of the meaning of a source-language text by means of an equivalent target-language text. Linguistics plays an important role in the translation of a document from one language to another. Translating information includes more than just changing each word from the original language to another. One must also decode and decipher all the facets and functions of the original language into the new language. This is where the study and understanding of linguistics comes into play in translation. This book takes a linguistic approach to translation issues, looking first at the structural view of language that explains the difficulty of translation. It also seeks to provide further insights into the way scientific and technical knowledge is communicated.

VA02-136 Cognitive Linguistics, 5-Vols/Set.
  Yamanashi, Masa-aki/ 9781446298732/ Price:£ 965.00
 
Book Cover In the past few decades, cognitive linguistics has developed into one of the most dynamic and empirically insightful frameworks within theoretical and descriptive linguistics. It represents a revolutionary, new movement in modern linguistics which includes a variety of approaches and methodologies. They are, however, unified by a number of common assumptions. Foremost among these is the thesis of “cognition and embodiment”: (i) language forms an integral part of human cognition, and (ii) any insightful analysis of linguistic phenomena needs to be embedded in what is known about human cognitive abilities and embodied experience. Cognitive linguistics aims, in new and insightful perspectives, for a cognitively plausible and natural account of what it means to know language, how language evolutionally emerged, how language is acquired, how language dynamically changes, and how language is used for communication in a creative way. This five-volume major work brings together articles on this broad subject which take up a number of crucial issues both theoretical and methodological; investigate research questions relating to phonology, morphology and grammar; explore issues relating to the semantic and pragmatic mechanism of language and communication; and outline and survey the interdisciplinary relationship between cognitive linguistics and related fields of cognitive science.

  Forsyth, Helen/ 9781682510001/ Price:US$ 160.00
 
Book Cover Linguistics refers to the scientific study of language. There are three aspects to this study: language form, language meaning, and language in context. Linguistics analyzes human language as a system for relating sounds or signs and meaning. Phonetics studies acoustic and articulatory properties of the production and perception of speech sounds and non-speech sounds. On the other hand, the study of language deals with how languages encode relations between entities, properties, and other aspects of the world to convey, process, and assign meaning, as well as to manage and resolve ambiguity. This book covers general linguistics, phonetics, phonology, syntax and semantics, psycholinguistics and in the history and structure of many individual languages and language families.

VA02-137 Language Testing and Assessment, 4-Vols/Set.
  Kunnan, Antony John/ 9780415708425/ Price:£ 940.00
 
Most scholars consider the birth of modern language testing as a field of study to be the year 1961 with the publication of Robert Lado’s book Language Testing and John Carroll’s chapter ‘Fundamental Considerations in Language Testing’. In the decades since it has grown in scope into a deeper and wider theoretical and intellectual field of study. The intellectual growth has come with the birth of psychometrics, specifically, in using statistical analyses for test development and research; with ideas from linguistics, in developing language tests that are communicatively oriented; with ideas from ethics, specifically, in developing qualities, codes, and standards so that tests are fair and just. This has been coupled with the growth of the field into a billion-dollar worldwide enterprise partly fuelled by the practical need to assess the English language ability of test-takers who want to study at English-medium universities or work in offices that mainly use English for communication. This new four-volume collection from Routledge captures this burgeoning field by offering a cogent and comprehensive state-of-the-art coverage of the very best material. The volumes have been conceptualized both as a scholarly contribution in terms of theories and research as well as a practical guide in terms of test development in the field of language testing and assessment. Volume I: Foundations Volume II: Development Volume III: Research Volume IV: Looking forward

VA02-127 Encyclopedia of Language Development.
  Brooks, Patricia J./ 9781452258768/ Price:£ 175.00
 
Book Cover The progression from newborn to sophisticated language user in just a few short years is often described as wonderful and miraculous. What are the biological, cognitive, and social underpinnings of this miracle? What major language development milestones occur in infancy? What methodologies do researchers employ in studying this progression? Why do some become adept at multiple languages while others face a lifelong struggle with just one? What accounts for declines in language proficiency, and how might such declines be moderated? Despite an abundance of textbooks, specialized monographs, and a couple of academic handbooks, there has been no encyclopedic reference work in this area--until now. The Encyclopedia of Language Development covers the breadth of theory and research on language development from birth through adulthood, as well as their practical application. Key Themes: •Categories •Effects of language on cognitive development •Fundamentals, theories and models of language development •Impairments of language development •Language development in special populations •Literacy and language development •Mechanisms of language development •Methods in language development research •Prelinguistic communicative development •Social effects in language acquisition •Specific aspects of language development
   
VA02-125 Writing Systems, 4-Vols/Set.
  Moseley, Christopher/ 9780415520027/ Price:£ 715.00
 
Throughout most of the history of linguistics, the primacy of the spoken word over the written word has been virtually axiomatic. Scholars working at what is perceived as the core of linguistic science, on grammar, sociolinguistics, phonetics, phonology, have generally perceived the written word as merely the means of representing the true matter of linguistics, spoken language, with varying degrees of efficiency. Yet the written word has demonstrably shaped the course of languages, been the means of their maintenance or, under different circumstances, their downfall. Written language has been the means of holding speech communities together. Speech communities have become writing communities and, in doing so, gained hegemony over their less literate neighbours. Because writing has for so long and so often been treated as the poor relation of speech, the serious study of writing as a discipline itself has been relegated to disparate parts of the linguistic domain. It is only in the last fifty years that scripts and writing systems, their evolution and impact, have been the subject of scholarly works. Writing Systems aims at the widest possible sweep in collecting materials on the subject of written language and presents not only the latest research findings, but also anthologises writings on particular themes under each of these headings, both journal articles and longer works, extending over a long period of time. It provides an extensive bibliographical resource for scholars interested in pursuing the connections between the social, linguistic, historical, pedagogical, legal, and economic aspects of writing.

VA02-124 Second-Language Education, 5-Vols/Set.
  Evans, Michael/ 9780415500241/ Price:£ 1340.00
 
Language is at the very core of the educational process, both as a medium for the transmission of knowledge and as a cognitive tool. The learning and use of second languages has often been associated with purely instrumental views of education. But the importance of the socio-cultural dimension of language learning is increasingly acknowledged as the need to educate children for life in multilingual and multicultural societies becomes compelling, and as new technologies transform communication. Second-language education is a well-established and flourishing area of research and study in the Anglophone world, and increasingly too in China and other Asian countries. It is also a complex and contested sphere in which many learning theories and pedagogies compete for attention. This new five-volume collection from Routledge’s acclaimed Major Themes in Education series meets the need for an authoritative, up-to-date, and comprehensive reference work to make sense of the area’s voluminous literature. Indeed, the dizzying scale of the research output—and the breadth of the field—makes this new Routledge title especially welcome. It provides a one-stop collection of classic and contemporary contributions to facilitate ready access to the most influential and important scholarship. Fully indexed and with an introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Second-Language Education is an essential work of reference. It is destined to be valued by L2 specialists and scholars working in related areas—as well as by educational policy-makers and professionals—as a vital research tool. Part 1: Second Language Teacher Education Part 2: Second Language Education Policy-making Part 3: Second Language Pedagogy Part 4: Second Language Learning Part 5: Study Abroad Part 6: Codeswitching Part 7: Second Language Teacher and Learner Beliefs Part 8: Culture and Second-Language Learning

VA02-121 Critical Discourse Analysis, 4-Vols/Set.
  Wodak, Ruth/ 9781446210581/ Price:£ 675.00
 
Book Cover Since the late 1980s, Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) has become a well-established field in the social sciences. However, in contrast with some branches of linguistics, CDA is not a discrete academic discipline in the traditional sense, with a fixed set of research methods. The manifold roots of CDA lie in a myriad of disciplines including rhetoric, anthropology, philosophy and cognitive science, to name a few. This four-volume set brings together seminal articles on the subject from varied sources, creating an invaluable roadmap for scholars seeking to consolidate their knowledge of CDA, and of its continued development. Sculpted and edited by a leading voice in the field, this work covers the interdisciplinary roots, the most important approaches and methodologies of CDA, as well as applications in other disciplines in an updated and comprehensive way. Structured thematically, the four volumes cover a wide range of aspects and considerations: Volume One: Histories, Concepts and Interdisciplinarity Volume Two: Theoretical Approaches and Methodologies Volume Three: 'Doing CDA' - Case Studies Volume Four: Applications and Perspectives - New Trends in CDA

VA02-119 Language Evolution, 4-Vols/Set.
  Fitch, W. Tecumseh/ 9780415679152/ Price:£ 860.00
 
This new four-volume collection, part of Routledge's Critical Concepts in Linguistics series, assembles the most important scholarly writings concerning the biological evolution of language, particularly those incorporating a Darwinian view of evolution. Including excerpts from ancient sources such as the Bible, Plato, and Aristotle, along with classical sources like Condillac, Rousseau, and Herder, Language Evolution provides an overview of the intensive debate on language evolution following the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species. It also outlines each of the major conceptions of protolanguage and examines the evolution of our human capacity for speech, as well as focusing on the modern (mostly post-1990) literature attempting to reconcile the Chomskyean approach to linguistics with a Darwinian evolutionary viewpoint. In addition, it incorporates the new insights and approaches based on computer modelling, which have played a growing role in the recent literature. This is an important resource for those scholars interested in possessing a deeper, historically informed overview of the immense literature on this topic. The collection will also, of course, provide unified and ready access to a selection of the most important papers from the 1990s onward. It is supplemented with a full index, and includes an introduction to each volume, newly written by the editors, which places the assembled materials in their historical and intellectual context.
   
VA02-116 Educational Linguistics, 6-Vols/Set.
  Hornberger/ 9780415588393/ Price:£ 1375.00
 
What educational approaches best serve language-minority children? What policies, programmes, and circumstances encourage or contribute to minority-language maintenance? How do we make sense of the ecology of language development and socialization in non-traditional settings? And what is the relationship of language, learning, and technology? These are the kinds of dizzying questions addressed by those working in educational linguistics. The subdiscipline first came to prominence in the 1970s, and in recent decades it has expanded rapidly. It is now a well-established field of teaching and scholarly research. As serious academic thinking about and around educational linguistics continues to flourish and develop, this new title in the Routledge Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Linguistics, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subject's vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Edited by Nancy H. Hornberger, Goldie Anna Professor of Education and Director of the Educational Linguistics Program at the University of Pennsylvania, USA, this Routledge Major Work is a four-volume collection of foundational and cutting-edge contributions. With a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Educational Linguistics is an essential work of reference. It is destined to be valued by specialists and scholars working in the area-as well as by educational policy-makers and professionals-as a vital one-stop research tool.

SA02-413 Reinterpreting Gesture as Language: Language ''in Action''.
  Rossini, Nicla/ 9781607509752/ Price:EUR 110.00
 
Book Cover This book exploits a number of methodological instruments from the study of linguistics to restore gesture to its original position of importance within the field. The data presented here are analyzed as pieces of information that describe behavior, but which are also an integral part of the more complex phenomenon of human communication. Evidence is provided by means of experiments on hearing and deaf subjects, in addition to a review of the major findings about the use and function of gesture in situations of handicap, such as aphasia and blindness. The ideas proposed here are a result of the author’s long study and speculation on the role of gesture, both in communicative acts and with respect to language.

VA02-88 Endangered Languages, 4-Vols/Set.
  Austin, Peter K./ 9780415438438/ Price:£ 1020.00
 
At least half of the seven thousand or so languages spoken today are in danger of disappearing during the 21st century. Although languages have always come and gone, the current rate of language extinction is unprecedented, a loss which not only affects individual communities but also diminishes the world's linguistic heritage. This crisis has stimulated a variety of responses from linguists: sociolinguists have been concerned with the study of language revitalisation-how the tendency to shift away from minority languages can be reversed-while general linguists have paid more attention to the structural aspects of language endangerment-how languages change as they fall into disuse. In recent years linguists have been particularly concerned with language documentation-the activity of recording, annotating, translating and archiving audiovisual materials of languages before they are lost. In addition, all linguists working on endangered languages face the ethical question of how much effort they should devote to non-academic activities in support of the communities with whom they work. The study of language endangerment has only really become a concern of mainstream linguistics in the past twenty years, and this four-volume collection is the first of its kind, bringing together research on language endangerment from leading scholars. Theoretical and practical responses by linguists have led to the emergence of the linguistic sub-fields of language documentation and language revitalisation, and most of the publications within them date from just the last ten years. There has however been a veritable flood of books and articles during this time, and an enormous flowering of interest both within academia and in the wider community as well. Twenty years ago an extensive collection on this topic could not have been put together.
   
VA02-118 Corpus Linguistics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Biber, Douglas/ 9780857029645/ Price:£ 645.00
 
Book Cover Corpus linguistics is a research approach to investigate the patterns of language use empirically, based on analysis of large collections of natural texts. While corpus-based analysis has had relatively little influence on theoretical linguistics, it has revolutionized the study of language variation and use: what speakers and writers actually do with the lexical and grammatical resources of a language. Corpus-based research employs the research methods of quantitative and qualitative social science to investigate language use patterns empirically. This four-volume collection is organized around linguistic research questions that can be investigated from a corpus perspective and includes amongst others studies of individual words, comparisons of supposedly synonymous words, studies of grammatical variation, and sociolinguistic studies of dialects, registers, styles, and world varieties. Corpus-based analysis has also proven to be important for the study of historical change. Volume One: Lexical Studies focuses on the study of word use, describing the 'collocational' associations of words, and describing phraseological patterns in a language. Volume Two: Grammar moves on to research questions that relate to grammar, including the special uses of a grammatical feature in a particular register, the discourse factors influencing the choice among grammatical variants, and lexico-grammatical patterns of association. Volume Three: Varieties investigates registers, dialects, and national varieties of English. Some of these studies describe the characteristics of a particular variety; describe the ways in which registers or dialects differ in their preference for particular linguistic variants. Volume Four: Methods and Applications addresses two major considerations: corpus design and analytical methods. This volume also includes a section on analyses of the patterns of use for learners of English as well as a section on the pedagogical implications of corpus research.
   
VA02-114 Cognitive Linguistics, 5-Vols/Set.
  Goldberg, Adele/ 9780415574938/ Price:£ 1235.00
 
This new addition to Routledge's Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Linguistics, brings together the very best and most influential scholarly research on cognitive linguistics. Cognitive Linguistics is a broad approach to language that places psychological reality at the top of the list of theoretical desiderata. Both experimental and theoretical work will be included in each volume. The fact that language is a system of communication is emphasized, so that explanations that rely on the functions of linguistic elements are preferred over purely syntactic accounts. The label, "Cognitive Linguistics," arose in the 1980s with Langacker, Lakoff, Fillmore, and Talmy laying the semantic/pragmatic foundations for the approach. Volume I will be dedicated to key works by these authors and others. Volume II further explores semantic foundations with papers on metaphor, blending and embodiment. Cognitive Linguistics encompasses approaches to phonology, morphology, grammar, and discourse, but the emphasis has been on morphology and grammar. Work has coalesced around the idea that form-function pairings (constructions, schemata) are the basic units of language. Volumes III and IV include seminal works in this area. A strength of Cognitive Linguistics is that it interfaces naturally with a great deal of work in language acquisition, language evolution, and language change. Selected papers from these topics that make explicit use of key ideas in Cognitive Linguistics will be included in Volume V. With a new introduction by the editor and a comprehensive index, this five volume collection will be a convenient and authoritative reference resource on cognitive linguistics for both student and scholar.
   
VA02-101 Pragmatics II, 5-Vols/Set.
  Kasher, Asa/ 9780415477956/ Price:£ 1020.00
 
A new title in the Routledge Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Linguistics, Pragmatics II is a five-volume collection of the very best scholarship on pragmatics. It is an essential successor collection to the editor's Pragmatics (6 vols.) (978-0-415-11734-0), published in 1998 and described by The Linguist List as 'essential background reading for students of pragmatics and new researchers in the pragmatics of language'. Pragmatics has experienced dramatic growth since its first flourishing early in the twentieth century. Pragmatics (1998) was the first comprehensive collection of the field's canonical and cutting-edge research, and this new collection now takes full account of the many important developments that have taken place since its appearance. Pragmatics II also includes coverage of areas without the scope of the first collection. With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Pragmatics II is an indispensable work of reference. It is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital research resource.

Lenin.
  Lih, Lars T./ 9781861897930/ Price:£ 11.99
 
In this book Lars T. Lih presents a striking new interpretation of Lenin's political outlook. The standard view portrays Lenin as a pessimist with a dismissive view of the revolutionary potential of the workers. This book reveals that beneath the sharp polemics, Lenin was more a romantic enthusiast than a sour pragmatist, one who imposed meaning on the whirlwind of events happening around him by seeing them through the lens of his own heroic scenario of class leadership. This concise biography is based on wide-ranging new research that puts Lenin into the context both of Russian society and the international socialist movement of the early twentieth century. It also sets the development of Lenin's political outlook firmly within the framework of his family background and personal outlook.

VA02-98 Semiotics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Bundgaard, Peer F./ 9780415476812/ Price:£ 860.00
 
Semiotics (the study of sign processes—‘semiosis’—and sign systems) embraces linguistics, philosophy, and literary studies, as well as linking to anthropology, art, psychology, and biology. This new Routledge collection helps to make sense of the huge interdisciplinary corpus of scholarly literature and brings together the best and most influential materials from ‘the first phase’, neo-classics from the institutionalization of semiotics in the 1960s, and contemporary works illustrating the ongoing development of semiotics and its widening applications (for example, in the natural sciences). Volume I (‘Philosophy’) collects pre-modern material showing the genesis of semiotics from Locke to Peirce, along with a range of work from the last thirty years. Volumes II and III focus on ‘Linguistics and Literary Theory’ and include key work from recent developments in cognitive linguistics and cognitive semantics. Finally, Volume IV (‘Psychology, Biology, Anthropology’) gathers the best offerings from other disciplines, and from emerging fields such as ‘biosemiotics’.
   
VA02-95 Language and Politics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Joseph, John/ 9780415452434/ Price:£ 790.00
 
The intrinsic link between language and politics has long been recognized (for example, Aristotle wrote ‘… that man is more of a political animal than bees or any other gregarious animals is evident. Nature, as we often say, makes nothing in vain, and man is the only animal whom she has endowed with the gift of speech’ (Politics, 1, 2)). It remains a broad, flourishing, and highly contested area of academic study. On the one hand, it analyses how politicians use language, applying approaches which range from traditional rhetoric to Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA). On the other hand, it is also concerned with the political dimension that is arguably inherent in the use of all language. Language and Politics, a new title the Routledge series, Major Themes in English Studies, addresses the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of this rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of scholarly literature. Edited by John E. Joseph, a prominent scholar in the field, and author of the subject’s leading textbook, this new Major Work from Routledge brings together in four volumes the foundational and the very best cutting-edge scholarship to provide a synoptic view of many of the key issues and current debates. Volumes I and II collect the best and most influential work on the language of politics. These two volumes include the key work analysing political texts or arguing that political language is inherently propagandistic. Especially in recent years, the fundamentally political nature of language has been reasserted and Volumes III and IV gather the essential scholarship examining how language itself is politically constructed or used. Language and Politics is fully indexed and has a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context. It is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by scholars and students as a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
   
VA02-93 Second-Language Acquisition, 6-Vols/Set.
  Ortega, Lourdes/ 9780415450201/ Price:£ 1350.00
 
Second-language acquisition was born in the late 1960s as an interdisciplinary enterprise that borrowed equally from the feeder fields of linguistics, language teaching, child language acquisition, and psychology. Since then, it has expanded considerably in scope and methodology to the point that for many, by the end of the twentieth century, it had finally reached its coming of age as an autonomous discipline, a discipline that today is more than ever undergoing change, renovation, and expansion. This six-volume collection, a new title in Routledge’s Critical Concepts in Linguistics series, offers a comprehensive survey of this burgeoning field, its accumulated findings and proposed theories, its developed research paradigms, and its pending questions for the future. Including both classical and cutting-edge research, the collected materials offer a cogent and nuanced panoramic of the past, present, and future of second-language acquisition research.

Volume 1 also includes an introduction which covers: *the concept of linguistic geography and historical development of linguistic reflection in Scotland in both the written and oral tradition *the new approach in Scottish phonetics and dialectology which began in the second half of the nineteenth century *the origins and approaches of the Linguistic Survey of Scotland *the role of the questionnaire in the creation the Linguistic Atlas *and a valuable and detailed introduction to the maps and lists of word-geographical material which make up these two volumes. Maps within this collection show: *the physical structure of the Scots and Gaelic-speaking areas covered *The National grid and grid of Northern Ireland enabling the reader to locate each informant *population density of each region Volume 3 presents the phonological investigation of Scots dialect speech, providing the first large-scale presentation of a phonological survey along functional lines, that is, by means of a technique of contrasts and oppositions of the stressed vowels of the recorded speech-sounds.

VA02-106 Anthropological Linguistics: Theories and Practices, 5-Vols/Set.
  Schieffelin, Bambi/ 9780415551786/ Price:£ 1025.00
 
Viewing language as a dynamic semiotic system that shapes and is shaped by cultural, social, and cognitive factors alike, the materials gathered in this new Major Work collection from Routledge explore how people in communities worldwide think about language, talk about language, use language, and change language. The collected works illustrate the ways in which language practices—spoken, written, and signed—are resources that participants use for creating social worlds and accomplishing a wide range of activities within those worlds. Furthermore, they demonstrate how analysts use linguistic and cultural practices, and the ideologies that shape them, to provide insights into the complexities of everyday, as well as less commonly occurring, social encounters. Theoretical essays are complemented with readings that illustrate, integrate, and often advance these frameworks. Focus is on work that emphasizes the importance of cultural contexts in analysing the linguistic practices in which they are embedded; the role talk-in-interaction in establishing, maintaining, or transforming social realities; and the linguistic and communicative resources and strategies that speakers use in conforming others to their point of view. Selections range from investigations, for example, of how speakers create and assert identities in particular kinds of face-to-face interactions; how political institutions, including language academies and experts, attempt to regiment the language practices of particular communities, and how such attempts are resisted; and how various technologies and media, including literacy, radio, television, cellular telephones, and computers, are transforming communicative landscapes at local, national, transnational, and global levels.

WC057 Analysing and Applying English Grammar.
  Green, Christopher/ 9789627707684/ Price:NT$ 1350.00
 
Book Cover Grammar is a subject worthy of study in its own right but it is also a communication tool. This means that learning grammar involves both acquiring knowledge of rules and building skills that enable the rules to be put to use. For these reasons, the authors aim not only to help students analyse English grammar but also to develop skills in applying it in different contexts.

VA02-90 Computer-Assisted Language Learning, 4-Vols/Set.
  Hubbard, Phil/ 9780415465397/ Price:£ 1055.00
 
Serious work using computers to support language teaching and learning began in the 1960s, but it was not until the beginning of the 1980s when microcomputers began to proliferate that groups of practitioners began forming professional groups and a formal identification of the field occurred. Although the early promise of computer-assisted language learning (or 'CALL'), to revolutionize second-language learning has not been met, the past quarter century has seen a fascinating range of growth. This is not only because of lessons learned from research and practice, but also due to the rapid and continuing shifts in the technology itself. Nominally a branch of applied linguistics, 'CALL' is truly interdisciplinary, drawing its core concepts not only from linguistics, but also from computer science, speech engineering, psychology, sociology, second-language acquisition, and general education. This new four-volume title from Routledge will allow 'CALL' practitioners, researchers, and students to easily access the best and most influential foundational and cutting-edge scholarship. The is also a comprehensive introduction to critical concepts in 'CALL' for applied linguists and language educators interested in the growing role of technology in second-language acquisition.

VA02-102 Clinical Linguistics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Powell, Thomas W./ 9780415481250/ Price:£ 790.00
 
Clinical Linguistics involves the application of linguistic theories and procedures to the study, characterization, and treatment of communicative disorders. Although linguists have long applied their science to a variety of language problems, Clinical Linguistics did not emerge as an autonomous discipline until the publication of Crystal’s influential Clinical Linguistics in 1981. Despite its youth, this specialist area has quickly evolved into a highly productive field of inquiry. From its inception, Clinical Linguistics has had a strong international presence. The field is interdisciplinary, with relevance to theoretical and applied linguistics, speech and language therapy, psychology, and education. The Clinical Linguistics literature has been especially eclectic, appearing in diverse scientific and professional publications. Many of these sources have limited circulation, a fact that challenges individuals and research libraries to maintain a comprehensive collection. The primary aim of this new four-volume Routledge collection is to assemble a representative library of the seminal and the best cutting-edge Clinical Linguistics scholarship. Classic works, as well as state-of-the-art data-based and philosophical articles, are included. Volume I is focused on the foundations of Clinical Linguistics, particularly its conceptual, historic, and theoretical bases; Volume II examines clinical phonetics and speech measurement, and the phonological analysis of disordered speech. Volume III, meanwhile, concentrates on Clinical Linguistics and language disorders. The final volume in the collection is organized around the educational and medical application of Clinical Linguistics, as well as emerging issues and controversies.

SA02-374 Language Engineering for Lesser-Studied Languages.
  Nirenburg, Sergei/ 9781586039547/ Price:EUR 115.00
 
Technologies enabling computers to process specific languages facilitate economic and political progress of societies where these languages are spoken. Development of methods and systems for language processing is therefore a worthy goal for national governments as well as for business entities and scientific and educational institutions in every country in the world. As work on systems and resources for the ‘lower-density’ languages becomes more widespread, an important question is how to leverage the results and experience accumulated by the field of computational linguistics for the major languages in the development of resources and systems for lower-density languages. This issue has been at the core of the NATO Advanced Studies Institute on language technologies for middle- and low-density languages held in Georgia in October 2007. This publication is a collection - of publication-oriented versions - of the lectures presented there and is a useful source of knowledge about many core facets of modern computational-linguistic work. By the same token, it can serve as a reference source for people interested in learning about strategies that are best suited for developing computational-linguistic capabilities for lesser-studied languages – either ‘from scratch’ or using components developed for other languages. The book should also be quite useful in teaching practical system- and resource-building topics in computational linguistics.

  Martinich, A. P./ 9780415434713/ Price:£ 830.00
 
What do ‘meaning’ and ‘truth’ mean? And how are they situated in the concrete practices of linguistic communication? What is the relationship between words and the world? How—with words—can people do such varied things as marry, inaugurate a president, and declare a country’s independence? How is language able to express knowledge, belief, and other mental states? What are metaphors and how do they work? Is a mathematically rigorous account of language possible? Does language make women invisible and encode a male worldview? These are the kind of questions that have been addressed by philosophers of language since ancient times. Interest in the subject stretches back to the beginnings of western philosophy (for instance, in his Academy, Plato considered the question whether the names of things were deemed by convention or by nature). Interest in the philosophy of language has also been enduring—and has blossomed anew in the past century. This new title in the Routledge series, Critical Concepts in Philosophy, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subject’s vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Edited by A. P. Martinich, one of the subdiscipline’s leading scholars, this collection brings together in four volumes the canonical and the very best cutting-edge scholarship in the field to provide a synoptic view of all the key issues, figures, concepts, and current debates. With comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editor, which place the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Philosophy of Language is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by philosophers and linguists—as well as psychologists and cognitive scientists working on language—as a vital research resource.

VA02-80 Comparative Grammar, 6-Vols/Set.
  Roberts, Ian G./ 9780415341998/ Price:£ 1275.00
 
The study of comparative grammar has long been a concern of linguistic theory. To the extent that, by studying the aspects of grammar which vary, we might arrive at an idea of what does not vary, this study can be seen as one way of studying universals of grammar. Although it has antecedents in the Middle Ages, comparative grammar was not systematically studied until the nineteenth century, and then purely from a historical perspective. In the past forty years, however, two important approaches have emerged: Greenbergian language typology and the Chomskyan programme based on the idea of the interaction of the principles and parameters of universal grammar. In recent years, these two approaches have to a degree converged. Our notion of how grammatical systems vary and our ability to provide detailed, sophisticated analyses of this variation across a range of languages and grammatical phenomena is probably greater than it has been at any time in the past. Concentrating on principles-and-parameters theory, this new Routledge Major Work presents a general, detailed and critical overview of what has been achieved. Aside from the first and last volumes, each one is devoted to a particular aspect of grammatical variation which has been identified as underlying important differences among languages. The first volume presents some of the most important work prior to the formulation of the principles-and-parameters approach in approximately 1980, including Greenberg's seminal early paper on language typology, while the last volume, in addition to considering further aspects of variation, briefly illustrates how the principles-and-parameters approach has been applied to first-language acquisition and syntactic change.
   
VA02-79 Asian Englishes, 5-Vols/Set.
  Bolton, Kingsley/ 9780415374866/ Price:£ 995.00
 
In recent decades, the cultural and linguistic legacies of the colonial era have been superseded by the globalization of English through the international mass media, particularly via satellite television and the Internet. In many societies that were previously the colonies of Anglophone powers, 'new Englishes' have appeared, visible most dramatically in the 'new literatures' of India, Singapore, the Philippines etc. However, many of these new Englishes are much older in provenance than many linguists have previously recognized. The process of British and American imperial expansion in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries took the English language to many parts of the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, China and Japan. Indeed, it is typically in these initial stages of political, historical and cultural contact that we can identify the dynamics of 'languages in contact', and the origins of 'World Englishes', in a range of settings, including South Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Asia. This Major Work from Routledge, a new title in the History and Development of World Englishes series, is a unique reference collection. It brings together a range of sources, reprinted in facsimile, charting the spread of English throughout Asia and the development of 'Asian Englishes' from the eighteenth century through to the 1960s.
   
VA02-78 Otto Jespersen, 15-Vols/Set.
  / 9780415402415/ Price:£ 1840.00

It includes his much referenced 'Modern English Grammar', 'The Philosophy of Grammar', 'How to Teach a Foreign Language', as well as a tome documenting his own constructed language 'Novial Lexike.'
   
VA02-73 Coversation Analysis, 4-Vols/Set.
  Drew, Paul/ 9781412918480/ Price:£ 645.00
 
It is now widely agreed that in latter part of the 20th century sociology has taken a 'linguistic turn'. One of the approaches to emerge out of the linguistic turn is conversation analysis, which is now recognized as one of the most distinctive and genuinely original approaches to the study of language, communication and social interaction to have emerged during the last forty years. Research in conversation analysis over the past 30 years has shown how these and other technical aspects of talk-in-interaction are structured, socially organized resources - or methods - whereby participants perform and coordinate activities through talking together. Conversational interaction is the primordial site of human sociality. Thus these methods are the technical bedrock on which people build their social lives, and construct their social relations with one another. This comprehensive collection, brought together by two of the leading figures in conversation analysis, will be indispensable to researchers in not only linguistics but sociology, social psychology, communications, and health sciences whose work involved the language and linguistic features of social action.
   
VA02-62 Phonetics of English in the Nineteenth Century, 7-Vols/Set.
  Collins, Beverley/ 9780415349246/ Price:£ 1200.00
 
Work on speech sound and the sound systems of languages can be traced back in the British Isles at least as far as the sixteenth century. It was, however, only in the nineteenth century that the word 'phonetics' was actually coined, and it was also at this time that a wider interest in the subject grew. This was reflected in the appearance of a large number of books and other publications dealing with speech sound, and also in the application of phonetics to such diverse areas as language teaching, elocution, teaching the deaf, shorthand writing and dialectology. The nineteenth century can therefore be said to be the era when the true foundations of the modern disciplines of phonetics and phonology were laid. This collection includes works by well-known figures such as Isaac Pitman, Alexander Ellis, Alexander Melville Bell, and Henry Sweet. In addition, contributions of less well-known contemporaries such as Laura Soames, Robert Ioan Prys and Richard Lloyd are also included. The set also features a new introduction by the editors.
   
VA02-57 Edward Sapir: Critical Assessments of Leading Linguists, 3-Vols/Set.
  Koerner, E.F.K./ 9780415255073/ Price:£ 540.00
 
Edward Sapir (1884-1939), one of the foremost linguists and anthropologists of his time, is most widely known for his contributions to the study of North American Indian languages. A founder of ethnolinguistics, which considers the relationship of culture to language, he was also a principal developer of the American (descriptive) school of structural linguistics. The set includes a new introduction by the editor, as well as smaller section introductions, exploring and contextualising the main themes of the selections included. It also includes an index.
   
VA02-55 Syntax, 6-Vols/Set.
  Freidin, Robert/ 9780415246729/ Price:£ 1265.00
 
This collection covers the fundamental concepts and analytic tools of generative syntax of the last fifty years, from Chomsky's Morphophonemics of Modern Hebrew (1951) to the present day. It makes available, in one place, key published material on each of the following areas: * Phrase structure: This first volume includes articles on the phrase structure of linguistic expressions: how it is represented and the grammatical mechanisms that create it--in short, the foundations of syntactic theory. * Transformations: (2 volumes) These volumes cover the development of the major mechanisms accounting for displacement and deletion phenomena, including verbal morphology, NP-movement, wh-movement, extraposition, VP-deletion and gapping. * Conditions on Rules and Representations: (2 volumes) These volumes cover the major constraints on the application of transformations and the representations they create, including the cycle, Case theory, binding theory, government, locality, theta theory, the projection principle, and the extended projection principle. The volumes include articles by leading contributors to the field: Baltin, Bresnan, Chomsky, Freidin, Stowell, Hale, Huang, Jackendoff, Kayne, Lasnik, McCawley, Pollock, Postal, Reinhart, Rizzi, Ross, Stowell, Torrego, Travis, Vergnaud, and Williams--among many others.

SA02-339 Dynamics of Speech Production and Perception: Life and Behavioural Sciences.
  Divenyi, Pierre/ 9781586036669/ Price:EUR 126.00
 
That speech is a dynamic process strikes as a tautology: whether from the standpoint of the talker, the listener, or the engineer, speech is an action, a sound, or a signal continuously changing in time. Yet, because phonetics and speech science are offspring of classical phonology, speech has been viewed as a sequence of discrete events-positions of the articulatory apparatus, waveform segments, and phonemes. Although this perspective has been mockingly referred to as "beads on a string", from the time of Henry Sweet's 19th century treatise almost up to our days specialists of speech science and speech technology have continued to conceptualize the speech signal as a sequence of static states interleaved with transitional elements reflecting the quasi-continuous nature of vocal production. This book, a collection of papers of which each looks at speech as a dynamic process and highlights one of its particularities, is dedicated to the memory of Ludmilla Andreevna Chistovich. At the outset, it was planned to be a Chistovich festschrift but, sadly, she passed away a few months before the book went to press. The 24 chapters of this volume testify to the enormous influence that she and her colleagues have had over the four decades since the publication of their 1965 monograph.

VA02-75 Atlas of North American English, The. [Includes book and multimedia CD-ROM]
  Labov, William/ 9783110167467/ Price:EUR 700.00
 
The Atlas of North American English provides the first overall view of the pronunciation and vowel systems of the dialects of the U.S. and Canada. The Atlas re-defines the regional dialects of American English on the basis of sound changes active in the 1990s and draws new boundaries reflecting those changes. It is based on a telephone survey of 762 local speakers, representing all the urbanized areas of North America. It has been developed by Bill Labov, one of the leading sociolinguists of the world, together with his colleagues Sharon Ash and Charles Boberg. The Atlas consists of a printed volume accompanied by an interactive CD-ROM. Starting January 2006, the print and multimedia content will also be available online.
   
VA02-67 World Englishes, 6-Vols/Set.
  Bolton, Kingsley/ 9780415315050/ Price:£ 1400.00
 
The study of World Englishes has seen a revolutionary shift during the last twenty years. Before 1980, there was a general assumption within Britain, the United States and many other societies where English was taught, that the primary target was the 'Standard English' of Britain. However, during the 1980s interest grew in the identification and description of global varieties of English, marking a shift in focus from 'English' to 'Englishes'. This collection covers the full range of differing academic traditions within the subject and also addresses current theoretical approaches to the field. It provides students and researchers with instant access to the key articles and theories on the subject, and is completed by a new introduction from the editors.

VA06-117 Ayer: Writings in Philosophy, 7-Vols/Set.
  Ted Honderich/ 9781403917447/ Price:£ 1235.00
 
The British philosopher, A.J. Ayer is known for his influence on the development of analytical philosophy, spreading and developing the ideas of logical positivism following his study with the Vienna Circle in the 1920s. A.J. Ayer rejected metaphysics and theology as meaningless and emotivist, and argued for what he identified as a 'criterion of verifiability' as a test of meaningful statements. In addition to being a creative and rigorous philosopher, the major books included in this collection reveal him to have been a gifted teacher.
   
VA02-65 Encyclopedia of Linguistics, 2-Vols/Set.
  Strazny, Philipp/ 9781579583910/ Price:£ 270.00
 
This two-volume resource contains over 500 essay entries (arranged alphabetically) and an expansive glossary, making even the more complex linguistic issues understandable for the non-specialist reader. The approach is both historical and international, with emphasis on the varied perspectives, figures and methodologies that make up the field of linguistics. Containing entries contributed by several hundred scholars from around the world, the Encyclopedia covers a wide range of theoretical issues, highlighting the main problems discussed in the relevant subdisciplines of linguistics and giving sketches of individual languages that provide readers with a broad phenomenological and historical overview. To capture the variability of language, each entry concentrates on the particular characteristics that differentiate the language (or language family) from others. Essays on countries and regions highlight linguistics issues specific to a given country or geographic region. These regional essays concentrate on the political and sociological aspects of, among others, linguistic diversity, language planning and education. In addition, biographical essays focus on the scholarship and contributions to the theoretical development of linguistics by leading linguists past and present.
   
VA02-58 Teaching English as a Foreign Language, 1936 to 1961: Foundations of ELT, 6-Vols/Set.
  Smith, Richard C./ 9780415299695/ Price:£ 1170.00
 
Following the Second World War, the British Council, along with British publishers and universities, began to take a serious interest in English as a foreign language teaching ('ELT') and the UK soon gained a dominant role in the development and export of teaching approaches and materials. This set includes the works of neglected theorists such as Horace Wyatt, who indicated that English can be taught through the mother tongue as well as 'directly', and Michael West, whose emphasis on the educational value of teaching reading 'in difficult circumstances' has often been ignored in favour of the more utilitarian, spoken-language approach to ELT. This set complements English as a Foreign Language Teaching, 1912-1936: Pioneers of ELT.
   
VA02-49 Literacy: Major Themes in Education, 4-Vols/Set.
  Wray, David/ 9780415277082/ Price:£ 1010.00
 
There can be few areas of education which have been more controversial than the teaching of literacy. In an increasingly information-dense society, the ability to make sense of and to produce text is crucial to success, and literacy has understandably assumed the burden of the benchmark of 'educatedness'. This four-volume collection covers the major debates about exactly what it means to be literate and how literacy can best be taught. Rather than centering on the emotional reaction of mass media debates, this set focuses on research findings into processes and pedagogy.

  Manning, John/ 9781861891983/ Price:£ 16.95
 
The emblem, an image accompanied by a motto and a verse or short prose passage, is both art and literature: in the emblem tradition, the image presents a story – often with pictorial symbols – and the verse below it drives home the picture-story's moral instruction. It is one of the most fascinating, and enduring, art forms in Western culture.

VA18-41 Performance: Critical Concepts in Literary and Cultural Studies, 4-Vols/Set.
  Auslander, Philip/ 9780415255110/ Price:£ 870.00
 
Over the past twenty years, 'performance' has emerged as a central analytical and critical concept. Now the focus of a burgeoning academic discipline, performance studies, it is also crucial to many other fields, including anthropology, sociology, communications, art history, cultural studies, linguistics and rhetoric. This collection brings together major texts articulating perspectives on performance and performativity. The multi-disciplinary approach of this collection reflects the growing importance of the concept of performance across a variety of disciplines. With a new introduction contextualising the concept's rise, and a full index to guide the reader through the work, this will be an invaluable reference tool for students and researchers alike.
   
VA02-52 Morphology: Critical Concepts in Linguistics, 6-Vols/Set.
  Katamba, Francis/ 9780415270786/ Price:£ 1290.00
 
Although the study of word structure has always been at the heart of linguistic investigations, in the couple of decades following the publication of Chomsky's Syntatical Structures (1957) morphological investigations were marginalized. The dominant view in generative linguistics was that all grammatical aspects of word-formation should be dealt with by syntax and all the aspects of words relating to their pronunciation should be part of the province of phonology. Gradually, however, morphology has been rehabilitated during the last twenty years. This six volume collection draws together the most significant contributions to morphological theory and analysis which all serious students of morphology should be aware of. By comparing the stances taken by the different schools about the important issues, the reader will be able to judge the merits of each, with the benefit of evidence rather than prejudice.
   
VA02-51 Teaching English as a Foreign Language, 1912-36: Pioneers of ELT, 5-Vols/Set.
  Smith, Richard C./ 9780415299640/ Price:£ 1065.00
 
This collection focuses on the work of the major pioneers working in the 1920s and 1930s whose research and writings laid the methodological foundations for post-World War II British approaches to English as a foreign language teaching ('ELT'). These early pioneers included Harold E. Palmer (in Japan), Michael West (in India) and Laurence Faucett (in China). Separately and jointly (at the 1934-5 'Carnegie Conference' featured in the last volume), they succeeded in establishing a principled basis for the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, different in significant respects from teaching English as a 'first language' in Britain and the Empire.
   
VA02-50 Semantics, 6-Vols/Set.
  Gutirrez-Rexach, Javier/ 9780415266321/ Price:£ 1290.00
 
Semantics is a key concept in linguistic theory, concerning the analysis and description of the meaning of linguistic expressions. This collection contains a selection of the most important contributions to semantic theory ranging from Gottlob Frege's essay 'On Sense and Reference' written in 1892 to present-day thinkers in the field. The collection is structured around three major themes. * Fundamental notions, the relations between semantics and grammar and the relations between meaning and cognition * The semantics of basic grammatical constructions and structures, such as the semantics of determiners, nouns, adjectives and related topics including quantifier scope and the definiteness / indefiniteness distinction. * Topics related to sentential and discourse semantics: events and thematic roles, tense, aspect and modality, negation, questions, pronouns and the semantics / pragmatics interface. The six volumes cover a wide range of issues within the interdisciplinary field of semantics as it relates to philosophy, linguistics and cognitive science. A new general preface and brief volume-specific introductions by the editor set the themes in context. The set is completed with a full index, which will guide the reader through the work

SA02-302 A History of Writing.
  Fischer, S. R./ 9781861891679/ Price:£ 14.95
 
From the earliest scratches on stone and bone to the languages of computers and the internet, A History of Writing offers a fascinating investigation into the origin and development of writing throughout the world. Commencing with the first stages of information storage, Fischer focuses on the emergence of complete writing systems in Mesopotamia in the fourth millennium BC. He documents the rise of Phoenician and its effect on the Greek alphabet, generating the many alphabetic scripts of the West. Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean and Japanese writing systems are dealt with in depth, as is writing in pre-Columbian America. Also explored are Western Europe's medieval manuscripts and the history of printing, leading to the innovations in technology and spelling rules of the 19th and 20th centuries.
   
SA02-302 A History of Reading.
  Fischer, S. R./ 9781861891600/ Price:£ 19.95
 
Steven Roger Fischer’s fascinating book traces the complete story of reading from the time when symbol first became sign through to the electronic texts of the present day. Describing ancient forms of reading and the various modes that were necessary to read different writing systems and scripts, Fischer turns to Asia and the Americas and discusses the forms and developments of completely divergent dimensions of reading. With the Middle Ages in Europe and the Middle East, innovative re-inventions of reading emerged – silent and liturgical reading; the custom of lectors; reading’s focus in general education – whereupon printing transformed society’s entire attitude to reading. Fischer charts the explosion of the book trade in this era, its increased audience and radically changed subject-matter; describes the emergence of broadsheets, newspapers and public readings; and traces the effect of new font designs on general legibility.
   
VA02-38 Semiotics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Boklund-Lagopoulou, Karin/ 9780761974161/ Price:£ 645.00
 
Semiotics, the study of the sign systems that constitute human culture, has since its discovery in the late 19th century and early 20th century, transformed the ways in which we think about culture and communication. It has opened new areas of study and made fruitful connections between established disciplines. This four-volume set offers the most extensive, systematic and in-depth survey of the foundations and development of semiotics as a field. It covers foundational texts in semiotics, from the constitution of the field in the early 20th century, through its blossoming with the advent of structuralism in the 1960s and `70s and the formative dialogue between structuralism and Marxism. It goes on to present a representative selection of central essays in literary semiotics, narratology and poetics, the semiotics of anthropology, myth, art, architecture, music, theatre, film, fashion and other aspects of contemporary culture. Special attention is paid to the development of a poststructuralist, semiotically aware discourse in the analysis of culture and history, to the related areas of deconstruction and psychoanalysis, and to the current controversy over the possibilities and issues raised by a postmodernist semiotics. The anthology offers a unique and valuable research tool for students and scholars alike in all areas of the social sciences and humanities, including linguistics, social and cultural anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, philosophy, psychology, literature, and media and communication studies.

VA02-32 Daniel Jones: Selected Works, 8Vols/Set.
  Collins, Beverley/ 9780415233361/ Price:£ 1260.00
 
Daniel Jones (1881-1967) played a significant role in the emergence of phonetics as a fully developed academic discipline in the first half of the twentieth century. His views on the subject not only provided the foundations for the British tradition but also had a considerable, and often underrated, impact on the American structuralist school. This eight volume collection makes available the first editions of Jones' standard books, i.e. The Pronunciation of English (1909), An English Pronouncing Dictionary (1917) and An Outline of English Phonetics (1918). In addition, Jones' crucial pioneering works, now out of print for many decades, are made easily accessible to scholars once again. Numerous articles encompassing a variety of phonetic/phonological topics, for example, phonemic analysis, juncture, models of pronunciation, and historiography, are also included (converted where necessary from the original phonetic transcription to the conventional orthography). Much unpublished work, ranging from lecture notes on the sound systems of French, Spanish and Italian, to hitherto unpublished details of Jones' dealings with celebrities such as George Bernard Shaw and the Poet Laureate Robert Bridges, appears here for the first time. Also incorporated are extracts from his correspondence with prominent contemporary linguists such as David Abercrombie, Roger Kingdon, Harold Palmer and H. J. Uldall.
   
VA02-28 Psycholinguistics: Critical Concepts in Psychology, 6-Vols/Set.
  Altmann, Gerry/ 9780415229906/ Price:£ 1340.00
 
These volumes reprint articles from a variety of international journals, book chapters and key technical reports, to take a broad look at how the field has developed from the turn of theTwentieth Century through to the turn of the twenty-first. Since the 1960s, there has been a boom in research on how the human mind both produces and comprehends language. Psycholinguistics - as a product of this boom - represents a synthesis between linguistics and psychology. The set covers the following topics: * Language Acquisition * The Mental Lexicon * Sentence Processing * Discourse and Meaning * Spoken Language Production * Reading * Disorders of Language and Production * Computational Models of Language Learning and Adult * Language Use
   
VA02-24 Critical Discourse Analysis: Critical Concepts in Linguistics
  Toolan, Michael/ 9780415189927/ Price:£ 1065.00
 
Over the last decade, Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) has accrued an exceptional amount of attention across a wide number of academic disciplines within the humanities and social sciences. In almost every field of human activity, we are surrounded by and caught up in a network of texts and discourses. At the same time, a gradual enfranchising of individuals in Western societies tends to make us less inclined to accept those surrounding texts and discourses unquestioningly. It is these twin factors that underpin all studies that appear under the aegis of CDA. This unique, multidisciplinary collection gathers together the most influential writings adopting a CDA approach, along with the most important antecedent essays and articles from the earlier Twentieth Century. The articles that make up this collection are drawn from a wide range of journal sources, including articles critical of the CDA approach as well as those that illustrate applications of its principles and methods. A detailed index and new introduction by the editor will help the reader navigate this wealth of diverse material.

VA02-25 Development of Celitic Linguistics 1850-1900, The. 6-Vols/Set.
  Davis, Daniel R./ 9780415224901/ Price:£ 1445.00
 
Following on from Celtic Linguistics 1700-1850, this set covers the period 1850-1900, which saw the foundation of the modern subject of Celtic linguistics. Several important works are reproduced here, including: * Johann Kaspar Zeuss's seminal study, Grammatica Celtica (1853), the first text to formulate a detailed and comprehensive comparative grammar of the Celtic language. * John Rhys' Lectures on Welsh Philology (1877), and Whitley Stokes' Celtic Declension (1885), both of which reflect Zeuss's influence on the field. * Earlier traditions of the historical study of the Celts, with an emphasis on language, are continued in John Jones Thomas's Britannia Antiquissima; or, A Key to the Philology of History (1860). * Neo-druidic themes receive attention in John Williams's Gomer; or, A Brief Analysis of the Language and Knowledge of the Ancient Cymry (1854). This set covers a period of fundamental reformation in Celtic linguistics, and will be of interest to linguists, historians, and cultural theorists.

The American Way of Spelling: The Structure and Origins of American English Orthography.
  Venezky, Richard L./ 9781572304697/ Price:US$ 53.00
 
Book Cover Can ghoti really be pronounced as fish? Why is "o" short in glove and love, but long in rove and cove? Why do English words carry such extra baggage as the silent "b" in doubt, the silent "k" in knee, and the silent "n" in autumn? And why do names like Phabulous Phoods and Hi-Ener-G stand out? Addressing these and many other questions about letters and the sounds they make, this engaging volume provides a comprehensive analysis of American English spelling and pronunciation. Venezky illuminates the fully functional system underlying what can at times be a bewildering array of exceptions, focusing on the basic units that serve to signal word form or pronunciation, where these units can occur within words, and how they relate to sound. Also examined are how our current spelling system has developed, efforts to reform it, and ways that spelling rules or patterns are violated in commercial usage. From one of the world's foremost orthographic authorities, the book affords new insight into the teaching of reading and the acquisition and processing of spelling sound relationships. 1. Overview 2. A Celebration of Variation 3. Creative Spellings 4. The Sound System 5. The Writing System 6. Origins and Evolutions 7. Discovering Regularity 8 Consonant Patterns 9. Vowel Patterns 10.

Analyzing Media: Communication Technologies as Symbolic and Cognitive Systems.
  Chesebro, James W./ 9781572304192/ Price:US$ 32.00
 
Book Cover Media critics have long focused on the content and form of verbal and nonverbal communication, while for the most part neglecting what traditionally has been considered a technical issue--how messages are produced or formatted in the various media. Filling a significant void in the literature, this book shows how criticism changes when the medium of transmission is taken into account. The authors eschew the notion of communication technologies as neutral conduits, depicting them instead as active and creative determinants of meaning. Three specific technological cultures that historically have defined human communication are identified--the oral, the literate, and the electronic--and their structural features and social implications are examined. Highlighted throughout are ways that media criticism may serve as a basis for assessing, evaluating, and responding to the effects of communication technologies upon what we know and how we experience the world.
