The Cambridge Handbook of morphology
edited by Andrew Hippisley and Greg Stump
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Foundations of morphological theory -- Issues in morphological theory -- Morphological principles -- Morphological frameworks -- The role of morphology in theories of phonology and syntax -- Domains for the evaluation of morphological theories.

The Cambridge Handbook of Morphology' describes the diversity of morphological phenomena in the world's languages, surveying the methodologies by which these phenomena are investigated and the theoretical interpretations that have been proposed to explain them. The Handbook provides morphologists with a comprehensive account of the interlocking issues and hypotheses that drive research in morphology; for linguists generally, it presents current thought on the interface of morphology with other grammatical components and on the significance of morphology for understanding language change and the psychology of language; for students of linguistics, it is a guide to the present-day landscape of morphological science and to the advances that have brought it to its current state; and for readers in other fields (psychology, philosophy, computer science, and others), it reveals just how much we know about systematic relations of form to content in a language's words - and how much we have yet to learn.

What is cultural translation?
Maitland, Sarah (Translator), author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, 2017
Introduction: The urgency of cultural translation -- 1. Interpretation: Translation and the quest for understanding -- 2. Distanciation: Rranslation and the space-time continuum -- 3. Incorporation: Objects in translation appear closer than they are! On the cartographies of translation -- 4. Transformation: Translation as revolution -- 5. Emancipation: Translation and the critique of ideology -- Conclusion: Cultural translation: Saving us from ourselves?

" What Is Cultural Translation? In this book, Sarah Maitland uncovers processes of negotiation and adaptation closely associated with the translation of languages behind the cultural phenomena of everyday life. For globalized societies confronted increasingly with the presence of difference in all its forms, translation has become both a metaphor for thoughtful encounter and a touchstone act for what we see, do and say, and who we are. Drawing on examples from across cultural domains (theatre, film, TV and literature) this work illuminates the elusive concept of 'cultural translation'. Focusing on the built environment, current affairs, international relations and online media, this book arrives at a view of translation in its broadest sense. It is a means for decoding how we shape the cultural realm and serves as a vehicle for new ways of seeing and being that question the received ideas that structure the communities in which we live. Written in a clear and engaging style, this is the first book-length study of cultural translation. It builds a powerful case for expanding the remit of translation to cover the experience of living and working in a globalized, multicultural world, and is of interest to all involved in the academic study of representation and contestation in contemporary cultural practice.

Sémantique lexicale et psychomécanique guillaumienne
Thavaud-Piton, Stéphanie, author
Limoges : Lambert-Lucas, [2016]
"Partant du constat que la psychomécanique du langage a connu de nombreuses applications en syntaxe et en sémantique grammaticale, l'auteure s'interroge sur la possibilité d'une sémantique lexicale d'inspiration guillaumienne. Une première partie présente la théorie du mot chez Gustave Guillaume en s'appuyant sur les écrits publiés et inédits. La deuxième partie évalue ce que les héritiers directs ou indirects de Guillaume André Eskénazi, Thierry Ponchon, Jacqueline Picoche et Bernard Pottier en ont retenu en relation avec la sémantique structurale. La troisième partie contronte la situation de la recherche en psychomécanique aux théories cognitives issues des travaux de Lakoff & Johnson."--Page 4 of cover.

Multilingualism : understanding linguistic diversity
Edwards, John, 1947 December 3-
London ; Continuum International Pub. Group, ©2012
The diversity of languages -- Interpreting language diversity -- Multilingual abilities -- The emergence and measurement of multilingualism -- The consequences of Babel : lingua francas -- The consequences of Babel : translation -- Keeping languages pure -- Languages and identities in transition -- Endangered languages and the will to survive -- Linguistic intervention and the 'new' ecology of language -- Epilogue.

This title examines the dynamics of a multilingual planet, offering us a snapshot of a globalized society. Multilingualism is everywhere in a globalized society. This book looks at its consequences, from the development of multilingual communities to language competition and variation. The author examines lingua francas, pidgins, creoles and artificial languages on the way to developing a snapshot of the social life of language. The book asks: How far a role does translation play in helping multilingualism to thrive? Are polyglots viewed with suspicion, given the links between language and identity? Is language maintenance and revival worth the effort? Can a language remain 'pure'? And if languages constantly shift, what does this say about identity?

Historicising transmedia storytelling : early twentieth-century transmedia story worlds
Freeman, Matthew, 1987- author
New York : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
"Tracing the industrial emergence of transmedia storytelling-typically branded a product of the contemporary digital media landscape-this book provides a historicised intervention into understandings of how fictional stories flow across multiple media forms. Through studies of the storyworlds constructed for The Wizard of Oz, Tarzan, and Superman, the book reveals how new developments in advertising, licensing, and governmental policy across the twentieth century enabled historical systems of transmedia storytelling to emerge, thereby providing a valuable contribution to the growing field of transmedia studies as well as to understandings of media convergence, popular culture, and historical media industries."

Sociocultural linguistics has long conceived of languages as well-bounded, separate codes. But the increasing diversity of languages encountered by most people in their daily lives challenges this conception. Globalization has accelerated population flows, so that cities are now sites of encounter for groups that are highly diverse in terms of origins, cultural practices, and languages. New media technologies invent communicative genres, foster hybrid semiotic practices, and spread diversity as they intensify contact and exchange between peoples who often are spatially removed and culturally different from each other. Diversity--even super-diversity--is now the norm. In response, recent scholarship complicates traditional associations between languages and social identities, emphasizing the connectedness of communicative events and practices at different scales and the embedding of languages within new physical landscapes and mediated practices. This volume takes stock of the increasing diversity of linguistic phenomena and faces the theoretical-methodological challenges that accounting for such phenomena poses to sociocultural linguistics.

In the beginning was the image : the omnipresence of pictures : time, truth, tradition
Benedek, András, 1950- author
Frankfurt am Main ; Peter Lang GmbH, [2016]
The authors outline the topic of visuality in the 21st century in a trans- and interdisciplinary theoretical frame from philosophy through communication theory, rhetoric and linguistics to pedagogy. As some scholars of visual communication state, there is a significant link between the downgrading of visual sense making and a dominantly linguistic view of cognition. According to the concept of linguistic turn, everything has its meaning because we attribute meaning to it through language. Our entire world is set in language, and language is the model of human activities. This volume questions the approach in the imagery debate.

Holy war : cowboys, Indians, and 9/11s
Anderson, Mark Cronlund, 1960- author
[Regina, Saskatchewan] : University of Regina Press, [2016]
Introduction : "A mission from God" -- Polk's war : "Blessings of Heaven" -- Jesus Custer : "The bulliest day since Christ was born" -- The Mexican revolution : "A chaos of the land" -- Augusto Sandino : "Fly in the ointment" -- Rambo's Vietnam : "You just don't turn it off " -- Ronald Reagan's Nicaragua : "This shining city" -- Conclusion : "Wake-up call from God."

"Noam Chomsky and George W. Bush seldom agree, but they both argued that 9/11 stood alone in American history. Although the use of airplanes as weapons of mass destruction was new, Mark Anderson maintains that the response to the attack was not: it was, in fact, as old as the Republic itself. Beginning with the Mexican-American War and ending with the invasion of Iraq, Holy War probes presidential speeches, news reports, editorial cartoons, television programs, and films to uncover how the United States reverts back to its creation mythology of "fighting Indians" to justify centuries of American imperialism."--
