Historical syntax in cross-linguistic perspective by Alice C Harris( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this major new work Alice Harris and Lyle Campbell set out to establish a general framework for the investigation of linguistic change. Systematic cross-linguistic comparison of syntactic change across a wide variety of languages is used to construct hypotheses about the universals and limits of language change more generally. In particular, the authors seek to move closer towards describing the range of causes of syntactic change to develop an understanding of the mechanisms of syntactic change, and to provide an understanding of why some languages undergo certain changes and not others. The authors draw on languages as diverse as Pipil and French, Georgian and Estonian, and the data presented is one of the book's great strengths. Rigor and precision are combined here with a great breadth of scholarship to produce a unique resource for the study of linguistic change, which will be of use to scholars and students alike

Multiple exponence by Alice C Harris( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multiple (or extended) exponence is the occurrence of multiple realizations of a single morphosemantic feature, bundle of features, or derivational category within a word. This book provides data and direction to the discussion of ME, which has gone in a variety of directions and suffers from lack of evidence. Alice Harris addresses the question of why ME is of interest to linguists and traces the discussion of this concept in the linguistic literature. The four most commonly encountered types of ME are characterized, with copious examples from a broad variety of languages; these types form the basis for discussion of the processing of ME, the acquisition of ME, the historical development of ME, and analysis of ME. The book addresses some of the most important questions involving ME, including why it exists at all

Contemplative practices and learning : a holistic approach to education in Bhutan by Yang Gyeltshen( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<h1>ABSTRACT</h1> CONTEMPLATIVE PRACTICES AND LEARNING: A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO EDUCATION IN BHUTAN May 2016 Yang Gyeltshen, DAUS, University of New Brunswick Canada M.Ed., University of New Brunswick Canada Ph.D., University of Massachusetts Amherst Directed by: Professor Cristine S. Crispin This study examines the comments, behavior, and products of young student monks, who are exposed to an integrated curriculum of contemplative practices and secular lessons, about whether and how they bring their social-emotional learning from the contemplative practices to bear when learning secular functional skills and knowledge. At the beginning of my self-study, I hypothesized that an integrated curriculum of secular learning combined with contemplative practices would result in deeper learning, based on the research and literature on the connection between affective and cognitive learning. My findings support and do not negate previous research that an integrated curriculum, integrating contemplative practices with secular studies - affective and cognitive learning - contributes both to one's affective, social and emotional development and to improved cognitive learning. My observations of students' comments, behavior and products lead me to propose that the Dharma lessons incorporated in each thematic unit in the Lhomon Education curriculum work toward that end. I propose that contemplative practices help to build critical, problem-solving, analytic and cognitive skills that educators strive to develop in students. My proposition - and that of Bhutan - is that the ultimate goal of education should be well-being and happiness, and the purpose of education should be to create those conditions that will enable the pursuer to strive for this fundamental goal
