Abstract:

This book examines the contribution of various recent developments in
linguistics to contrastive analysis. The articles range across a broad
gamut of languages, with most attention going to the languages of Europe.
They show how advances in theory and computer technology are together
impacting the field of contrastive linguistics. Part I focuses, from a
broadly functional-cognitive viewpoint, on the close link with typology,
stressing the importance of embedding the treatment of grammatical
categories in their contexts of use. Part II turns to methodological
issues, exploring the enormous potential offered by parallel,
computer-accessible corpora to contrastive linguistics and to enhancing the
testability, authenticity and empirical adequacy of cross-linguistic
studies. Part III is concerned with contrastive semantics, ranging from
individual items to entire grammatical constructions, and shows how
meanings are coupled to language-specific cognitive strategies and even to
cultural differences in subjective awareness and the fashioning of personal
identity.
