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."

Lexicographica. Series Maior / Supplementbände zum Internationalen Jahrbuch für Lexikographie Bd 138
The contributions of this book deal with the problem of fixed word combinations beginning with collocations to idiomatic and/or phraseological units from a lexicological contrastive and corpus linguistic perspective. The focus is on the problem of collocation lexicography. Two articles deal with the problem of how to translate fixed word combinations. The contrastive studies refer to the language combinations German - Slovakian, German - Bulgarian, German - Russian and English - Slovenian.
