PHONOLOGY


John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in Prosodic Phonology


Studies on the Phonological Word.
T. Alan HALL and Ursula KLEINHENZ (eds.)
Zentrum fuer Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft, Typologie und
Universalienforschung, berlin
Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 174
US & Canada: 1 55619 891 4 / USD 79.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 3680 1 / NLG 158.00 (Hardcover)

The present volume consists of nine articles dealing with the role of
the constituent 'phonological word' (or 'prosodic word') in various
typologically diverse languages. These languages and their respective
families subsume Indo-European (Dutch, German, English, European
Portuguese), Bantu (SiSwati, KiNande), Algonquian (Cree), Siouan
(Dakota), and Salishan (Lushootseed). One contribution examines the
phonological word in a sign language.

The theoretical issues dealt with in the book include: evidence for
the phonological word (e.g. rules, phonotactics, syllabification,
stress patterns), the connection between morphosyntactic and prosodic
structure (e.g. alignment phenomena in Optimality Theory), and the
relationship between the phonological word and other prosodic
constituents (e.g. the prosodic representation of clitics).

The volume will be of interest to all linguists and advanced students
of linguistics working on Prosodic Phonology, phonology-morphology and
phonology-syntax interface and Optimality Theory.

ROMANCE LINGUISTICS


John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in Romance Linguistics:

Formal Perspectives on Romance Linguistics.
Selected papers from the 28th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages
(LSRL XXVIII), University Park, 16-19 April 1998.
J.-Marc AUTHIER, Barbara E. BULLOCK, Lisa A. REED (eds.)

This volume presents current research in the formal treatment of
linguistic phenomena in the Romance languages. It focuses on a variety
of issues in phonology, second language acquisition, semantics, and
syntax. Topics in phonological theory include the analysis of
geminates, assimilation, rhotics, aspiration, syllabification, the
interaction of phonology with morphology, the phonology-phonetics
interface, and issues of transderivation and allomorphy selection. The
primary question addressed in the area of second language acquisition
theory is the issue of learners' access to Universal Grammar. The
studies in semantic theory examine the proper analysis of indefinites,
bare plurals, and specificity, with a particular emphasis on the
syntax-semantics interface. Finally, the essays on syntactic theory
discuss issues pertaining to argument structure, functional
projections, phrase structure and adjunction, feature checking, and
the syntactic representation of tense.

FUNCTIONAL LINGUISTICS


John Benjamins Publishing announces the publication of a new work in
Functional Linguistics:

Text and Context in Functional Linguistics.
Mohsen GHADESSY (ed.)
University of Brunei Daussalam
Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 169
US & Canada: 1 55619 885 X / USD 89.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 3674 7 / NLG 178.00 (Hardcover)

The shift towards a sociolinguistic approach to the analysis of
language in the last few decades has necessitated new definitions for
a number of concepts that linguists have taken for granted for a long
time. This volume attempts to demystify the important notions of
'text' and 'context' by providing clear definitions and examples
within the assumptions of Systemic Functional (SF) linguistics. After
a discussion of the role and significance of context by three eminent
SF linguists in section one, the influence of context on text is dealt
with in section two 'From Context to Language'. Section three 'From
Language to Context' considers textual features and their relationship
to contextual factors. All the contributors base their analyses on
data collected from a variety of spoken and written registers of
contemporary English.
