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: Construction Grammar in a Cross-Language Perspective
Edited By: Mirjam Fried
Jan-Ola Östman
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CAL%202
Series Title: Constructional Approaches to Language 2
Description:

This volume gives an easily accessible, yet comprehensive, sophisticated,
and example-rich introduction to Construction Grammar as it has been
developed from the early 1980s by Charles J. Fillmore and his associates.
It also provides a succinct account of the historical and intellectual
background of the model and shows how Construction Grammar can easily be
applied to typologically very different languages and to a variety of
language-specific phenomena. All of the contributors to the volume came out
of the Fillmorean school at UC-Berkeley and have worked consistently on
applying and further developing the model in various domains of linguistic
analysis.
