THE TURKISH LANGUAGE REFORM: A Catastrophic Success

Geoffrey Lewis, Oxford University

This is the first account of the transformation of the Turkish
language in the years following 1930--probably the most extensive
piece of language engineering ever attempted. The book is important
both for the study of linguistic change and for the light it throws on
twentieth-century Turkish politics and society.

EVALUATION IN TEXT: Authorial Stance and the Construction of
Discourse

Edited by Susan Hunston, University of Birmingham, and Geoffrey
Thompson, University of Liverpool

Long neglected as a focus of linguistic research, evaluation in its
various guises is now being recognized as a crucial aspect of any
study of discourse. In this book, writers coming from different
standpoints are brought together, providing a unique profile of the
topic from several perspectives. These perpectives include: Systemic
Linguistics, Narrative, Corpus Linguistics, and Discourse Analysis.
