Morphological Analysis in Comparison.

This volume consists of selected and revised papers from the Seventh
International Morphology Meeting, held in 1996 in Vienna. It presents
advances in morphological theorizing, such as the foundations of
sign-based morphology, the morphology-syntax interface, the boundaries
between compounding and derivation, derivation and inflection, and the
emergence of morphology from premorphological precursors in early
first-language acquisition. The contributions deal with morphological
analyses in various fields of the ever-widening domain of morphology
and its relevance to the lexicon.

The comparative aspect is reflected in the above-mentioned areas, and
through the variety of languages investigated: Indo-European and
non-Indo-European languages of Europe, and Asian, African and American
languages. This breadth allows valuable insights into current problems of
morphological research in America, Western and Eastern Europe.

John Benjamins Publishing announce this new work:


The Structure of Modern English.
A linguistic introduction.
Laurel J.BRINTON (University of British Columbia)

Complete with a teaching and testing CD, The Structure of Modern
English is an extensive introduction to all aspects of Modern
English structure, including:
- Phonology
- Morphology
- Lexical and sentence semantics
- Syntax
- Pragmatics

This text is for advanced undergraduate (and graduate) students
interested in contemporary English, especially those whose primary
area of interest is English as a second language, primary or
secondary-school education, English stylistics, theoretical and
applied linguistics, or speech pathology. Focus is exclusively on
English data, providing an empirical explication of the structure of
the language, rather than exploring theoretical questions or theory
for theory's sake. The text does use linguistic theory but presupposes
little or no background in linguistics or any particular linguistic
predilection.

The textbook begins with units on English phonology and morphology,
including a full discussion of the grammatical categories of
English. A section on lexical semantics follows which examines
structural semantics, modal auxiliaries, lexical aspect and related
topics. The next section analyzes -- in detail -- English syntax from
a broadly generative perspective. Then there is an examination of the
interaction of syntax and semantics with respect to thematic roles and
event structure. A final section covers the study of information
structuring, speech act theory, and conversational maxims.

Accompanying the text is a pedagogically useful CD-ROM that is a
complete workbook with numerous self-testing exercises.
Additionally, the CD presents suggestions for pedagogical
applications of the material in the textbook in a teachers section.
