My contribution to James McElvenny’s blog ‘History and Philosophy of the Language Sciences’ is now online. It stems from the presentation I gave at the SHESL-HTL conference in Paris last January and discusses the place of the journal WORD in the history of linguistics.
My new paper, entitled ‘Concerning the radial network view of argument structure: The case of the English caused-motion pattern,’ has recently been accepted for publication in the academic journal Language Sciences. As soon as it is published, I will post the abstract and a link to the online version of the paper. 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 language (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!
