Abstract

Large linguistic corpora are becoming increasingly important for linguistic work. For several years now, research endeavors have been dedicated to the construction of large corpora, the theory of data and corpora, as well as the development of methods in corpus analysis. The current volume focuses on theoretical and methodological questions about the compilation and use of large corpora and deals with these questions from the perspective of various linguistic subdisciplines, such as grammar, lexicon/lexicography, pragmatics/sociolinguistics and computer linguistics/informatics.

Abstract

In the three volumes of Major Trends in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, the editors guide the reader through a well-selected compendium of works, presenting a fresh look at contemporary linguistics. Specialists will find chapters that contribute to their fields of interest, and the three-volume collection will provide useful reading for anyone interested in linguistics. The first volume explores theoretical issues dealing with phonetics-phonology and syntax-semantics-morphology. Volume two is organized into three main sections that examine interdisciplinary linguistics: discourse analysis, gender and lexicography; language acquisition, and language disorders. Finally, volume three focuses on applied linguistics - both language teaching/ learning and education.

Abstract

How can students be empowered to communicate professionally – as translators, journalists and CCOs? How can professionals engaged in crucial language interactions do the same – pilots, nurses, lawyers and many others? This volume gives answers to these questions, providing insights into critical situations and good practices from many years of research and teaching in a practice-oriented, research driven School of Applied Linguistics.

Abstract

Throughout much of the history of linguistics, grammaticality judgments – intuitions about the well-formedness of sentences – have constituted most of the empirical base against which theoretical hypothesis have been tested. Although such judgments often rest on subtle intuitions, there is no systematic methodology for eliciting them, and their apparent instability and unreliability have led many to conclude that they should be abandoned as a source of data.

Abstract

Academics have long stopped speaking of “peoples” and “their” languages and cultures. Yet languages and cultures are still taken as evidence of quasi-ethnic community and “identity.” Nine papers by scholars in Egyptology, general linguists, archeology, German-Romance onomastics, Hittite studies, and Turkish studies reveal the incongruities between linguistic community, ethnicity, and culture.

Abstract

This article investigates how formulaic sequences fi t into a&#xD;constructionist approach to grammar, which is a major post-&#xD;Chomskyan family of approaches to linguistic structure. The author&#xD;considers whether, in this framework, formulaic sequences represent&#xD;a phenomenon that is suffi ciently diff erent to warrant special status&#xD;or whether they might best be studied in terms of the larger set of all&#xD;constructions found in language. Based on data drawn from a large&#xD;corpus of Wikipedia texts, it is argued that it is extremely diffi cult&#xD;to form a distinct class of formulaic sequences without creating&#xD;highly arbitrary boundaries. On the other hand, based on existing&#xD;theoretical claims that formulaic sequences are the basis of fi rst&#xD;language acquisition, a marker of profi ciency in a language, critical&#xD;to the success of communicative acts and key to rapid language&#xD;processing, it is argued that formulaic sequences as constructions&#xD;are nevertheless signifi cant enough to be the focus of research, and a&#xD;theoretical category meriting particular attention. These fi ndings have&#xD;key repercussions both for research primarily interested in formulaic&#xD;language and phraseology as well as for construction grammatical&#xD;research.

Abstract

Communicative interactions in international negotiations on cultural property not only provide information about the emergence and proliferation of arguments, rhetorics, and registers, but also permit valuable insights into actors’ positions, strategies and alliances. They significantly influence local and national practices and views related to cultural property debates. What can be gained from a deep analysis of the communicative patterns and strategies that actors engage in – the entailing text and talk of negotiations – is a better understanding of the process itself: how do different actors argue, what kind of strategies and rhetorics do they use, to which instruments and institutions do they refer, and in what way do actors react to each other? An analysis of communicative interactions contributes to the question of how international negotiations work. The analytic inclusion of sociolinguistic practices allows insights into positions, strategies, and perspectives pertaining to cultural property. By looking at not only what actors say, but also at how and in what contexts they do so, it is possible to make more accurate statements about their positions and perceptions in cultural property debates. As these communicative interactions influence outcomes considerably, an approach from linguistic anthropology is not only beneficial for an understanding of specific negotiations, but also for the analysis of broader cultural property issues.
