Genres in the Internet : issues in the theory of genre by Janet Giltrow( )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together for the first time pragmatic, rhetorical, and literary perspectives on genre, mapping theoretical frontiers and initiating a long overdue conversation amongst these methodologies. The diverse approaches represented in this volume meet on common ground staked by Internet communication: an arena challenging to traditional ideas of genre which assume a conventional stability at odds with the unceasing innovations of online discourse. Drawing on and developing new ideas of genre, the research reported in this volume shows, on the contrary, that genre study is a powerful
Pathways of change : grammaticalization in English( )

19 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a continual growth of interest among linguists of all-theoretical denominations in grammaticalization, a concept central to many linguistic (change) theories. However, the discussion of grammaticalization processes has often suffered from a shortage of concrete empirical studies from one of the best-documented languages in the world, English. Pathways of Change contains discussion of new data and provides theoretical lead articles based on these data that will help sharpen the theoretical aspects involved, such as the definition and the logical connection of the component processes of

The present handbook provides an overview of the pragmatics of language and language use mediated by digital technologies.

This volume presents a selection from the papers given at the 13th International Conference on Historical Linguistics.

Towards a standard English, 1600-1800 by Dieter Stein( )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The future of English linguistics as envisaged by the editors of Topics in English Linguistics lies in empirical studies which integrate work in English linguistics into general and theoretical linguistics on the one hand, and comparative linguistics on the other. The TiEL series features volumes that present interesting new data and analyses, and above all fresh approaches that contribute to the overall aim of the series, which is to further outstanding research in English linguistics
The pragmatic turn in law : inference and interpretation in legal discourse by Janet Giltrow( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of contributions from both linguists and lawyers brings a pragmatic perspective to the linguistic basis for legal meaning and for finding a norm by which to decide a case. That is, it turns from notions of linguistic meaning as residing in the text, as literal meaning waiting to be dug out, to focus instead on how readers infer pragmatic meaning, and on the kinds of inferencing that characterise legal discourse
Subjectivity and subjectivisation : linguistic perspectives by Dieter Stein( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notion of subjectivity explored here concerns expression of self and the representation of a speaker's perspective or point of view in discourse. Subjectivization involves the structures and strategies that languages evolve in the linguistic realization of subjectivity and the relevant processes of linguistic evolution themselves. This volume reflects the growing attention in linguistics and related disciplines commanded by the centrality in language of the speaker. An international team of contributors offers a series of studies on grammatical, diachronic and literary aspects of subjectivity and subjectivization, from a variety of perspectives including literary stylistics, historical linguistics, formal semantics and discourse analysis. The essays look at the role of the perspective of locutionary agents, their expression of affect and modality in linguistic expressions and discourse, and the effects of their phenomena on the formal shape of discourse. This volume demonstrates how deeply embedded in linguistic expression subjectivity is, and how central to human discourse

Taming the vernacular : from dialect to written standard language by JENNY CHESHIRE( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taming the Vernacular: From Dialect to Written Standard Language examines the differences between ''standard'' and ''nonstandard'' varieties of several different languages. Not only are some of the best-known languages of Europe represented here, but also some that have been less well-researched in the past. The chapters address the syntax of Dutch, English, French, Finnish, Galician, German and Spanish. For these languages, and many others, it is the standard varieties on which the most extensive syntactic research has been carried out, with the result that very little is known about the synt
