I will soon receive and review for the LINGUIST List the book ‘Normativity in Language and Linguistics,” edited by Aleksi Mäkilähde, Ville Leppänen, and Esa Itkonen (John Benjamins Publishing, 2019). Stay tuned! 🙂
My reviews of the following books have just been published on the LINGUIST List website:
I will soon receive the book ‘As variedades do português no ensino do português língua não materna’ edited by Christian Koch and Daniel Reimann (Narr Francke Attempto) and review it for the LINGUIST List. The book is a collection of studies on the the role of language varieties in the practice of teaching of Portuguese as a second language. I can’t await to receive the my review copy and start reading the book!
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!
My review of Peter Lasersohn’s book ‘Subjectivity and perspective in truth-theoretic semantics’ is now available on the LINGUIST List website. The interested reader can either read it online or get the PDF version.
Shortly, I will also receive and review the new book ‘Southern English varieties then and now,’ a collection of studies edited by Laura Wright on the varieties of English spoken in the south of England. Stay tuned!
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!
I have been selected to 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!
