SECOND LANGUAGE ATTRITION IN JAPANESE CONTEXTS
Edited by Lynne Hansen

This volume introduces the study of language attrition--the forgetting
of language. In this first collection devoted to second language
attrition, the contributors focus on contexts of loss where Japanese
is either the attriting language, or the replacing language. Bringing
together research to substantiate previous hypotheses in the field,
this book offers new theoretical and practical insights for those
interested in language change.

INTRODUCTION TO INDO-EUROPEAN LINGUISTICS
Oswald J. L. Szemer´┐Żnyi, University of Freiburg-im-Breisgau

This translation of the German edition first published in 1970,
introduces the standard text on the comparative-historical method to
an English-speaking audience. After surveying the general principles
of diachronic-comparative linguistics, the book uses these principles
to analyze the phonological and morphological structure of the
Indo-European language group. Each section of the book has a detailed
bibliography, so readers can progress from the general overview to a
more in-depth examination of particular topics.

RHETORICAL FIGURES IN SCIENCE
Jeanne Fahnestock, University of Maryland

Rhetorical Figures in Science breaks new ground in the rhetorical
study of scientific argument as the first book to demonstrate how
figures of speech other than metaphor have been used to accomplish key
conceptual moves in scientific texts. Examples, both verbal and
visual, range across disciplines and centuries to reaffirm the
positive value of these once widely-taught devices.
