Theoretical issues in contrastive linguistics by Jacek Fisiak( Book )

17 editions published in 1980 in 3 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrastive Linguistics, roughly defined as a subdiscipline of linguistics which is concerned with the comparison of two or more (subsystems of) languages, has long been associated primarily with language teaching. Apart from this applied aspect, however, it also has a strong theoretical purpose, contributing to our understanding of language typology and language universals. Issues in theoretical CL, which also feature in this volume, are the choice of model, the notions of equivalence and contrast, and directionality of descriptions. Languages used for illustration in this volume include English, German, Danish, and Polish

East Anglian English( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

East Anglia - the easternmost area of England - was probably home to the first-ever form of language which can be called English. East Anglian English has had a very considerable input into the formation of Standard English, and contributed importantly to the development of American English and (to a lesser extent) Southern Hemisphere Englishes; it has also experienced multilingualism on a remarkable scale. However, it has received little attention from linguistic scholars over the years, and this volume provides an overdue assessment. The articles, by leading scholars in the field, cover all aspects of the English of East Anglia from its beginnings to the present day; topics include place names, non-standard grammar, dialect phonology, dialect contact, language contact, and a host of other issues of descriptive, theoretical, historical and socio linguistic interest and importance. Professor Jacek Fisak teaches in the Department of English at the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland; Professor Peter Trudgill is Chair of English Linguistics at the University of Fribourg.; The contributors include: Peter Trudgill, Jacek Fisiak, Karl Inge Sandred, Gillis Kristensson, Laura Wright, Claire Jones, Tertu Nevalainen, Helena Raumolin-Brunberg, Ken Lodge, David Britain, and Patricia Poussa

16 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this volume deal with subjects ranging from sound change and general phonological issues to analyses of specific problems in Polish and English, while some papers are of a crosslinguistic/contrastive nature.
