  • Toward Proto-Nostratic
    Toward Proto-Nostratic (English, Hardback) Allan R. Bomhard

    This book represents the culmination of the author's work to date ? it incorporates and updates previous articles and adds much new material.

  • Intersubjectivity and Intersubjectification in Grammar and Discourse
    Intersubjectivity and Intersubjectification in Grammar and Discourse (English, Hardback) Lieselotte Brems

    Recent years saw a growing interest in the study of subjectivity, as the linguistic expression of speaker involvement.

Intersubjectivity...

  • Computers and Translation
    Computers and Translation (English, Hardback) Harold Somers

  • Language and its Functions
    Language and its Functions (English, Hardback) Pieter A. Verburg

    When Pieter Verburg (1905-1989) published Taal en Functionaliteit in 1952, the work was received with admiration by linguistic scholars, though the number of those who could read the Dutch text for themselves remained limited. The title alludes to the theories of linguistic function set out in 1936 by Karl Bühler, but Verburg regards the three functions of discourse ? focussing respectively on...
