Abstract:

The proposition that there is a correlation between language and culture or
culture-specific ways of thinking can be traced back to the views of Herder
and von Humboldt in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It is generally
accepted today that a language, especially its lexicon, influences its
speakers' cultural patterns of thought and perception in various ways, for
example through a culture-specific segmentation of the extralinguistic
reality, the frequency of occurrence of particular lexical items, or the
existence of keywords or keyword combinations revealing core cultural
values. The aim of this volume is to explore the cultural dimension of a
wide range of preconstructed or semi-preconstructed word combinations in
English. The 17 papers of the volume are divided into four sections,
focusing on particular lexemes (eg. 'enjoy' and its collocates), types of
word combinations (e.g. proverbs and similes), use-related varieties (such
as the language of tourism or answering-machine messages), and user-related
varieties (such as Aboriginal English or African English). The sections are
preceded by a prologue, tracing the development of the study of formulaic
language, and followed by an epilogue which draws together the threads laid
out in the various papers.

The relation between language and culture in general has been explored in a
number of important works over the past ten years. The study of the
relation between English phraseology and culture in particular has however
been largely neglected. This volume is the first book-length publication
devoted entirely to this topic.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
