Grammatical categories (e.g. complementizer, negation, auxiliary, case) are some of the most important building blocks of syntax and morphology. This is a study of grammatical categories, drawing on an unusually large amount of original dialect data.
Grammatical Categories is a sample of Manzini and Savoias unique blend of innovative theorizing and painstaking empirical research. Highly recommendable.

Objects and Information Structure


Mary Dalrymple
University of Oxford

and Irina Nikolaeva


University of London

In many languages, the objects of transitive verbs are either marked by grammatical case or agreement on the verb, or they remain unmarked. This book is a cross-linguistic study of how object marking is affected by information structure, the grammatical structuring of the utterance in accordance with context.

The Modular Architecture of Grammar


Jerrold M. Sadock
University of Chicago
Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 132
Modular grammar postulates several autonomous generative systems interacting with one another as opposed to the prevailing theory of transformational grammar in which there is a single generative component the syntax from which other representations are derived. In this book Jerrold Sadock develops his influential theory of grammar formalizing several generative modules that independently characterize the levels of syntax, semantics, role structure, morphology, and linear order, as well as an interface system that connects them. Multi-modular grammar provides simpler, more intuitive analyses of grammatical phenomena and allows for greater empirical coverage than prevailing styles of grammar. The book illustrates this with a wide-ranging analysis of English grammatical phenomena, including raising, control, passive, inversion, do-support, auxiliary verbs, and ellipsis. The modules are simple enough to be cast as phrase structure grammars and are presented in sufficient detail to make descriptions of grammatical phenomena more explicit than the approximate accounts offered in other studies.

Jerrold Sadock develops his influential theory of grammar, formalizing several generative modules that independently characterize the levels of syntax, semantics, role structure, morphology and linear order. The modules are simple enough to be cast as phrase structure grammars and make descriptions of grammatical phenomena more explicit than other studies.
Advance praise: In this original and creative work, Sadock addresses one of the most fundamental issues in theoretical linguistics, the relationship among the different modules of grammar. He challenges established generative theory by introducing an elegant and well motivated non-derivational model of linguistic organization.

Looks at the fascinating ways in which language provides insight into the workings of the human mind. By looking at the way in which the sounds of words are stored in the phonological lexicon we learn about how the human mind analyses a blurry and distorted signal into abstract representations.
Key Topics in Phonology

Taking examples from Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese and Singaporean Chinese, this book shows how politeness differs across countries, but also across social groups and subgroups. The first comprehensive study of the subject, this book is essential reading for those interested in intercultural communication, linguistics and East Asian languages.
avoids restrictive stereotypes and glib assumptions, productively complicating and extending our understanding of East Asian politeness and impoliteness.

The Language of Stories


A Cognitive Approach Barbara Dancygier
University of British Columbia, Vancouver

What is a word? In some sense the answer is obvious: words are things dictionaries try to define. This book offers an innovative formal framework for investigating the meanings of words, how word meanings compose together to form sentence meanings and how discourse context can affect the compositional process.
Finally we have a representation of word meaning and how it interacts with more standard compositional semantics. The fundamental basis of Nicholas Ashers theory is that word meanings are lexically simple, but the combination of word meanings involves interesting and complex ways for the types associated with the words to interact. Formal semanticists and computational semanticists now have a theory that is well-enough developed that they can pursue solutions to a broad range of hitherto recalcitrant phenomena.

Pragmatics is the study of human communication: the choices speakers make to express their intended meaning and the kinds of inferences that hearers draw from an utterance in the context of its use. This Handbook surveys pragmatics from different perspectives, presenting the main theories in pragmatic research, incorporating seminal research as well as cutting-edge solutions. It addresses questions of rational and empirical research methods, what counts as an adequate and successful pragmatic theory, and how to go about answering problems raised in pragmatic theory. In the fast-developing field of pragmatics, this Handbook fills the gap in the market for a one-stop resource to the wide scope of todays research and the intricacy of the many theoretical debates. It is an authoritative guide for graduate students and researchers with its focus on the areas and theories that will mark progress in pragmatic research in the future.
Comprehensive, up-to-date and authoritative The Cambridge Handbook of Pragmatics brings together the best scholars in the field to paint a state-of-the-art picture of the field of pragmatics.
Dingfang Shu, Shanghai International Studies University

Surveys a wide variety of polarity items, both negative and positive, commonly found in English and other languages to show that grammatical sensitivities arise regularly and only in semantic domains which are inherently scalar.
Michael Israels magisterial study of the scalar foundations of polarity confirms beyond the slightest shadow of a doubt that little things do mean a lot. With clarity, elegance and wit, Israel pries open the black box of polarity licensing (no mean feat!) to demonstrate the role of scalar models at the heart of emphasis, attenuation, and rhetorical effects. This book is essential and delightful reading for all linguists, philosophers, and cognitive scientists with an interest in meaning and understanding.

Advance praise: By following the children and grandchildren of Trackton and Roadville into adulthood, Heath provides a unique and moving account of how individuals language use and lives are shaped by economic and technological developments. Like its predecessor, this is sure to be an instant classic.

The increase in the number of migrants learning Japanese and the influence of electronic technologies on the way Japanese is written have led to a need for change in language policy in Japan. This book looks at the impact of these developments on linguistic behaviour and language management and policy.

Over the last thirty years, two social developments have occurred that have led to a need for change in language policy in Japan. One is the increase in the number of migrants needing opportunities to learn Japanese as a second language, the other is the influence of electronic technologies on the way Japanese is written. This book management and policy, and at the role of language ideology in the way they have been addressed. Immigration-induced demographic changes confront long-cherished notions of national monolingualism, and technological advances in electronic text literacy in general.

edited by Rajend Mesthrie

Rajend Mesthrie is Professor of Linguistics in the Department of English at the University of Cape Town, holding an NRF research chair in the area of Language, Migration, and Social Change. He served two terms as President of the Linguistics Society of Southern Africa. He has published widely in the fields of sociolinguistics, with special reference to language contact in South Africa. Amongst his publications are Introducing Sociolinguistics (2nd edn. 2009, with Joan Swann, Ana Deumert, and William Leap), Language in South Africa (Cambridge, 2002, ed.), and World Englishes (Cambridge, 2008, with Rakesh M. Bhatt).

Over the last 50 years, language policy has developed into a major discipline, drawing on research and practice in many nations and at many levels. This is the first Handbook to deal with language policy as a whole and is a complete state-of-the-field survey, covering language practices, beliefs about language varieties, and methods and agencies for language management. It provides a historical background which traces the development of classical language planning, describes activities associated with indigenous and endangered languages, and contains chapters on imperialism, colonialism, effects of migration and globalization, and educational policy. It also evaluates language management agencies, analyzes language activism and looks at language cultivation (including reform of writing systems, orthography and modernized terminology). The definitive guide to the subject, it will be welcomed by students, researchers and language professionals in linguistics, education and politics.
Advance praise: Under Spolskys capable editorship, language policy has come of age, with a book that will be as invaluable to policy makers, implementers and stakeholders as it is indispensable to students and researchers.
John E. Joseph, University of Edinburgh

The most comprehensive overview available, this handbook is an essential guide to sociolinguistics today. Reflecting the breadth of research in the field, it surveys a range of topics and approaches in the study of language variation and use in society. As well as linguistic perspectives, the handbook includes insights from anthropology, social psychology, the study of discourse and power, conversation analysis, theories of style and styling, language contact and applied sociolinguistics. Language practices seem to have reached new levels since the communications revolution of the late twentieth century. At the same time face-to-face communication is still the main force of language identity, even if social and peer networks of the traditional face-to-face nature are facing stiff competition of the Facebook-toFacebook sort. The most authoritative guide to the state of the field, this handbook shows that sociolinguistics provides us with the best tools for understanding our unfolding evolution as social beings.
Offers breadth, depth and up-to-date insight.
David Britain, University of Bern

It is generally agreed that about 7,000 languages are spoken across the world today and at least half may no longer be spoken by the end of this century. This state-of-the-art Handbook examines the reasons behind this dramatic loss of linguistic diversity, why it matters, and what can be done to document and support endangered languages. The volume is relevant not only to researchers in language endangerment, language shift and language death, but to anyone interested in the languages and cultures of the world. It is accessible both to specialists and non-specialists: researchers will find cutting-edge contributions from acknowledged experts in their fields, while students, activists and other interested readers will find a wealth of readable yet thorough and up-to-date information.
This handbook is an excellent assemblage of facts and ideas about the fast declining worlds linguistic diversity. It is uniquely resourceful and comprehensive.

A handy beginners guide, this textbook introduces the various stages of linguistic fieldwork, from the preparation of the work to the presentation of the results. Drawing on over forty years of fieldwork experience between them, in over two dozen languages, the authors pack the book with examples and anecdotes from their experiences, and include practical exercises for students to test what they have learned. Independent of any particular perspective, the methods can be applied to a wide range of fieldwork settings, for projects with very different theoretical backgrounds, and without the need to travel too far. The book covers traditional fieldwork such as language description and documentation, as well as less typical methods, including language contact and quantitative studies with experiments or questionnaires.

Language Attrition
Monika S. Schmid
Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, The Netherlands

In conversation we treat each other as having rights and responsibilities to know certain information and observe each other for violations of this moral order. This book examines practices used in managing what we know, how we monitor one anothers knowledge, and how this affects our affiliation with others.
Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics, 29

Advance praise: This is a fascinating cross-cultural and cross-linguistic study of discourse, an energetic attempt to give ethnolinguistics its proper place. It is a profound discussion and exploration of major cultural concepts, the patterns of vocabulary and metaphor used to express and construct them, and the discourse strategies used to apply them.

The best survey of the subject available, The Cambridge Handbook of Child Language brings together the worlds foremost researchers to provide a one-stop resource for the study of language acquisition and development. Grouped into five thematic sections, the handbook is organized by topic, making it easier for students and researchers to use when looking up specific in-depth information. It covers a wider range of subjects than any other handbook on the market, with chapters covering both theories and methods in child language research and tracing the development of language from prelinguistic infancy to teenager. Drawing on both established and more recent research, the Handbook surveys the crosslinguistic study of language acquisition; prelinguistic development; bilingualism; sign languages; specific language impairment, language and autism, Down syndrome and Williams syndrome. This book will be an essential reference for students and researchers working in linguistics, psychology, cognitive science, speech pathology, education and anthropology.

Chinese Calligraphy
Third edition Tingyou Chen

Afroasiatic languages are spoken by some 300 million people in Northern, Central and Eastern Africa and the Middle East. This book is the first typological study of these languages, which are comprised of around 375 living and extinct varieties. They are an important object of study because of their typological diversity in the areas of phonology (some have tone; others do not), morphology (some have extensive inflectional systems; others do not), position of the verb in the clause (some are verb-initial, some are verbmedial, and some are verb-final) and in the semantic functions they encode. This book documents this typological diversity and the typological similarities across the languages and includes information on endangered and littleknown languages. Requiring no previous knowledge of the specific language families, it will be welcomed by linguists interested in linguistic theory, typology, historical linguistics and endangered languages, as well as scholars of Africa and the Middle East.
Advance praise: Formerly dominated by research on historical reconstruction, this volume provides a new perspective on Afroasiatic by focusing on the typological wealth characterising this phylum.
Bernd Heine, University of Cologne

South Asian languages are rich in linguistic diversity and number. This book explores the similarities and differences of these languages. It will be of interest to linguists working on the description of South Asian languages and syntacticians wishing to discover more about the common structure of languages within this region.
Advance praise: A truly impressive scholarly achievement, capturing both the linguistic unity and diversity in South Asia through insightful theoryconnected analyses and an admirable range of well organized language data.

Computer-assisted language learning (CALL) is an approach to teaching and learning languages that uses computers and other technologies to present, reinforce and assess material to be learned. This book provides a much-needed overview of the diverse approaches to research and practice in CALL.
Advance praise: Broad in scope and thorough in analysis, Computer-Assisted Language Learning takes a fresh look at conceptualizing the field. An outstanding resource for CALL researchers and practitioners.

Combining impeccable research with insider knowledge and experience, this book argues that rather than being distinctly British as traditionally believed, the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is very much an international product. Essential reading for all students and historians of the English language, historians of dictionaries, and fans of the OED.

Code-switching the alternating use of two languages in the same stretch of discourse by a bilingual speaker is a dominant topic in the study of bilingualism and a phenomenon that generates a great deal of pointed discussion in the public domain. This handbook provides the most comprehensive guide to this bilingual phenomenon to date. Drawing on empirical data from a wide range of language pairings, the leading researchers in the study of bilingualism examine the linguistic, social and cognitive implications of code-switching in up-to-date and accessible survey chapters. The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-switching will serve as a vital resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as a wide-ranging overview for linguists, psychologists and speech scientists and as an informative guide for educators interested in bilingual speech practices.
Review of the hardback: reads like an international whos who of the field. It covers all important dimensions of codeswitching, all the main theoretical frameworks, and representatives of all the major schools

In this previously unpublished series of interviews, Chomsky discusses his iconoclastic and important ideas concerning language, human nature and politics. In dialogue with James McGilvray, he takes up a wide variety of topics the nature of language, the philosophies of language and mind and the evolution of language.
Advance praise: This clear and relaxed conversation, illuminating for specialists and newcomers, locates Chomskys linguistics within his larger conception of human inquiry. McGilvray asks the right questions and offers helpful editorial supplements.

Understanding Language through Humor


Stanley Dubinsky
University of South Carolina

and Chris Holcomb


University of South Carolina

An entertaining entry point into linguistics for those who are interested in language but who might never consider thinking about it in linguistic terms. It is a general introduction to linguistics and linguistic concepts, avoiding technical terminology, using the vehicle of jokes and cartoons.
Understanding Language through Humor is ingenious in its conception and deft in its execution. A sure bestseller.
Frederick J. Newmeyer, University of Washington, University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University

Why do men and women talk so differently? And how do these differences interfere with communication between the sexes? In search of an answer to these and other questions, John Locke takes the reader on a fascinating journey, from human evolution through ancient history to the present, revealing why men speak as they do when attempting to impress or seduce women, and why women adopt a very different way of talking when bonding with each other, or discussing rivals. When men talk to men, Locke argues, they frequently engage in a type of dueling, locking verbal horns with their rivals in a way that enables them to compete for the things they need, mainly status and sex. By contrast, much of womens talk sounds more like a verbal duet, a harmonious way of achieving their goals by sharing intimate thoughts and feelings in private.
an intriguing journey down the often uneven cobblestone road that is communication between the sexes It certainly merits space on the bookshelf of anyone interested in how men and women contrast and compliment each other on the verbal landscape.

and John Perry


Stanford University, California

Korta and Perry explain why critical pragmatics provides a coherent picture of how language study fits within the broader picture of human thought and action. They argue that the process of referentialism focuses on utterances and emphasizes that in communication we rely on utterance-bound ways of thinking of referents.
