Information structure in spoken Arabic by Jonathan Owens( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores speakersʹ intentions, and the structural and pragmatic resources they employ, in spoken Arabic -- which is different in many essential respects from literary Arabic. Based on new empirical findings from across the Arabic world this book elucidates the many ways in which context and the goals and intentions of the speaker inform and constrain linguistic structure in spoken Arabic. This is the first book to provide an in-depth analysis of information structure in spoken Arabic, which is based on language as it is actually used, not on normatively-given grammar. Written by leading experts in Arabic linguistics, the studies evaluate the ways in which relevant parts of a message in spoken Arabic are encoded, highlighted or obscured. It covers a broad range of issues from across the Arabic-speaking world, including the discourse-sensitive properties of word order variation, the use of intonation for information focusing, the differential role of native Arabic and second languages to encode information in a code-switching context, and the need for cultural contextualization to understand the role of "disinformation" structure. -- Publisher description from http://www.routledge.com (Oct. 4, 2011)
