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."
Satzverknüpfungen [Sentence to Sentence Linkage. On the Interaction of Form, Meaning and Discourse Function]
Zur Interaktion von Form, Bedeutung und Diskursfunktion
Linking simple sentences to complex units is an elementary process which all languages use to bridge the gap between the structure of the simple sentence and that of texts. This volume is a collection of articles which explore this theme from different perspectives: system-related, history of the language, comparative linguistics, discourse-related, corpus linguistics.
