In the next few months, I am going to review the following book for the LinguistList:
Amaral, Patrícia, and Delicado Cantero, Manuel. 2022. Noun-based constructions in the history of Portuguese and Spanish. Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press.
I’m looking forward to receiving my copy and reading the book! Stay tuned! 🙂
My reviews of the following books have recently been published on the LINGUIST List website:
- Aleksi Mäkilähde, Ville Leppanon and Esa Itkonen’s (2020) edited volume ‘Normativity in Language and Linguistics’ (John Benjamins). Read it online or download the PDF!
- Tjerk Hagemeijer, Philippe Maurer-Checchini and Armando Zamora Segorbe’s (2020) ‘A Grammar of Fa d’Ambô’ (Mouton De Gruyter). Read it online or download the PDF!
The presentations Cristiano Broccias and I jointly gave in Germany in the Summer of 2019 are eventually available (sorry for the delay!). Read and download our contribution to the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europaea- SLE52 (Leipzig, August 21-24, 2019) and the talk we gave at the 8th Biennial International Conference on the Linguistics of Contemporary English – BICLCE2019 (Bamberg, September 26-28, 2019)! 😉
My reviews of the following books have just been published on the LINGUIST List website:
- Masaru Kanetani’s (2019) monograph ‘Causation and reasoning constructions’ (John Benjamins). Read it online or download the PDF! 🙂
- Christian Koch and Daniel Reimann’s (2019) edited volume ‘As variedades do português no ensino do português língua não materna’ (Narr Francko Attempte). Read it online or download the PDF! 🙂
The new ‘Exploring Language(s)’ video is now online. It is the second part of a comparison between Spanish and Italian, two Romance languages whose differences are too often undervalued. In this second episode, I will deal with issues regarding grammar and lexicon. Watch it in the language you prefer! 😉
The links to all YouTube videos are listed in reverse chronological order here.
I will soon receive Masaru Kanetani’s new book ‘Causation and reasoning constructions’ (John Benjamins Publishing) and review it for the LINGUIST List. The book deals with the expression of causal relations and reasoning processes, which in some languages is realized by the same connective word (e.g., English ‘because,’ Japanese ‘kara’). I am looking forward to reading it. Stay tuned!
