Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

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"


Book Information

   

Title: Narrative Comprehension: A Discourse Perspective
Written By: Catherine Emmott
Description:

There has so far been relatively little research by cognitive linguists on the comprehension of narrative texts. This book draws on insights from discourse analysis and artificial intelligence to explore how readers construct and maintain mental representations of fictional characters and contexts, and goes on to consider the implications of cognitive modelling for grammatical theory and a literary-linguistic model of narrative text-types.
