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.

Reviewing a new book on grammar

Eng. vs. Jap..pngI 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!
