Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
Hispanic Linguistics at the Turn of the Millennium: Papers from the 3rd Hispanic Linguistics Symposium
The papers in this volume were selected from those presented at the 3rd Hispanic Linguistics Symposium held at Georgetown University in October 1999. We are delighted to be publishing selected proceedings from this annual conference. 10 of the papers in this book discuss phonology, phonetics, and historical linguistics. The other 15 papers focus on syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The volume offers an excellent snapshot of the research currently being done in Hispanic linguistics.
