Book Information

   

Title: The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Language Sciences
Edited By: Patrick Colm Hogan
Description:

Have you lost track of developments in generative linguistics, finding
yourself unsure about the distinctive features of Minimalism? Would you
like to know more about recent advances in the genetics of language, or
about right hemisphere linguistic operation? Has your interest in narrative
drawn you to question the relation between stories and grammars? The
Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Language Sciences addresses these issues,
along with hundreds of others. It includes basic entries for those
unfamiliar with a given topic and more specific entries for those seeking
more specialized knowledge. It incorporates both well-established findings
and cutting-edge research and classical approaches and new theoretical
innovations. The volume is aimed at readers who have an interest in some
aspect of language science but wish to learn more about the broad range of
ideas, findings, practices, and prospects that constitute this rapidly
expanding field, a field arguably at the center of current research on the
human mind and human society.
