Message 2: Socioling: Why We Curse: A Neuro-psycho-social Theory, T. Jay

Subject: Socioling: Why We Curse: A Neuro-psycho-social Theory, T. Jay

John Benjamins Publishing announces the availability of this new work
in Sociolinguistics:

Why We Curse.
A neuro-psycho-social theory of speech.
JAY, Timothy
US & Canada: 1 55619 758 6 / USD 35.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 2186 3 / NLG 70.00 (Hardcover)
 
Psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, linguists and speech
pathologists currently have no coherent theory to explain why we
curse and why we choose the words we do when we curse. The
Neuro-Psycho-Social Theory of Speech draws together information about
cursing from different disciplines and unites them to explain and
describe the psychological, neurological, cultural and linguistic
factors that underlie this startling phenomenon.

Why We Curse is divided into five parts. Part 1 introduces the
dimensions and scope of cursing and outlines the NPS Theory, while
Part 2 covers neurological variables and offers evidence for right
brain dominance during emotional speech events. Part 3 then focuses on
psychological development including language acquisition, personality
development, cognition and so forth, while Part 4 covers the wide
variety of social and cultural forces that define curse words and
restrict their usage. Finally, Part 5 concludes by examining the
social and legal implications of cursing, treating misconceptions
about cursing, and setting the agenda for future research.

The work draws on new research by Dr. Jay and others and continues the
research reported in his groundbreaking 1992 volume "Cursing in
America. A psycholinguistic study of dirty language in the courts, in
the movies, in the schoolyards and on the streets".
