John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce a new book series.
Argumentation in Context
Frans H. van Eemeren, University of Amsterdam
Bart Garssen, University of Amsterdam
This new bookseries highlights the variety of argumentative practices that
have become established in modern society by focusing on the study of
context-dependent characteristics of argumentative discourse that vary
according to the demands of the more or less institutionalized
communicative activity type in which the discourse takes place. Examples of
such activity types are parliamentary debates and political interviews,
medical consultations and health brochures, legal annotations and judicial
sentences, editorials and advertorials in newspapers, and scholarly reviews
Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics

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!
