Message 1: sum: lx and lit texts

Subject: sum: lx and lit texts

A short time ago, I posted a request for potential textbooks to be
used in an undergraduate course on Linguistics and Literature (in an
English department). I'd like to thank the following people for their
suggestions:

David Wharton
Jo Rubba
Chad D. Nilep
Clai Rice
Mick Short


Here are the references:

Elizabeth Closs Traugott & Mary L. Pratt (1980), 'Linguistics
	for Students of Literature' (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich).
Geoffrey N. Leech & Michael H. Short (1981), 'Style in Fiction'
(Longman).
Roger Fowler (1986), 'Linguistic Criticism' (Oxford).
Ronald Carter & Walter Nash (1990), 'Seeing through language'
(Blackwell).
Michael McCarthy & Ronald Carter (1994), 
 'Language as Discourse' (Longman, ISBN 0-582-084245 PPR).
 'The dialect of the tribe' (about the use of dialect in Joyce,
	 James, Beckett, etc.).
 'Dialects and Education' by Walt Wolfram and Donna Christian.

George Lakoff & Mark Johnson, _Metaphors We Live By_ (Chicago 1980).
Lakoff & Mark Turner, _More Than Cool Reason_ (Chicago 1989).
Jakobson's _Language in Literature_.
Don Freeman's _Linguistics and Literary Style_ (1970).

Also, Mick Short passed along the following information:

 I have a new book coming out with Longman (now part of Addison Wesley
 Longman) in the next 2-3 weeks. I received an advanced copy about a
 fortnight ago. It is called Exploring the Language of Poems, Plays and
 Prose, and is aimed at first year students of English/English
 Language/Linguistics interested in Lang and Lit. It has developed from
 the first year course i have been teaching in Lancaster for some
 years, and I used a photocopied version on the course this year. My
 students have been very positive about it (but then I suppose they
 would, in my hearing at least!).

Contact Mick directly for more information (m.shortlancs.ac.uk).


Thanks again to all those who responded,

Rich Epstein
