I will soon receive a new book to review for the LINGUIST List: ‘Multilingual practices in language history: English and beyond,’ a collection of contributions edited by Päivi Pahta, Janne Skaffari, and Laura Wright. Since I have always been interested in both language history (with particular – though not exclusive – regard to English) and language contact, I am looking forward to receiving the book. Stay tuned!
Download the slides of the talk Cristiano Broccias and I gave at the 9th International Conference on Historical Lexicology and Lexicography, along with the abstract! 😉 It was really great to take part in this meeting, in such a beautiful venue as Santa Margherita Ligure.
As the 9th International Conference on Historical Lexicology and Lexicography (ICHLL9) is approaching, check the program and download the book of abstracts on the conference website. Cristiano Broccias and I will be presenting our paper entitled ‘On the relationship between V and Ving in the English VVing pattern: A historical perspective’ on Wednesday, 20th June 2018 at 4.30pm. Stay tuned! 😉
I will review Peter Lasersohn’s book ‘Subjectivity and perspective in truth-theoretic semantics’ for The LINGUIST List. Since I am interested in the study of truth-conditional semantics and its comparison with alternative frameworks (e.g., cognitive semantics), I am looking forward to receiving this book. I will post the link to the review as soon as it is published. Stay tuned!
I have been selected to review Elisa Mattiello’s new book ‘Analogy in word-formation: A study of English neologisms and occasionalisms’ for The LINGUIST List. Since I am currently working on the role of analogy in languages (with particular reference to English), I am looking forward to carrying out this ‘task.’ I will post the review in the next few months, as soon as it is published. Stay tuned!
