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"

Title: The Left Periphery
Subtitle: The interaction of syntax, pragmatics and prosody in Czech
Written By: Anne Sturgeon
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20129
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 129
Description:

This study of the interaction of syntax, pragmatics, and prosody in left
peripheral positions focuses on two left dislocation constructions in
Czech, Hanging Topic Left Dislocation and Contrastive Left Dislocation. The
structure of the left periphery is delineated through a thorough
description and analysis of these constructions with respect to their
syntactic behavior, discourse function and prosody. Following recent work
on the Syntax-Phonology interface, prosody in these constructions is shown
to interact in interesting ways with the narrow syntax. Unexpected patterns
of left-edge resumption are explained through the role of the PF component
of the grammar.
