The Chinese language in European texts : the early period
Luca, Dinu, author
New York : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
Introduction: Entering the Language Continuum -- 1. Silence, Script, and “New Understandings” -- 2. Figures, Hieroglyphs, and Ciphers,- 3. Ships, Bricks, and the Majesty of Writing: The New Century -- Conclusion.

This detailed, chronological study investigates the rise of the European fascination with the Chinese language up to 1615. By meticulously investigating a wide range of primary sources, Dinu Luca identifies a rhetorical continuum uniting the land of the Seres, Cathay, and China in a tropology of silence, vision, and writing. Tracing the contours of this tropology, The Chinese Language in European Texts: The Early Period offers close readings of language-related contexts in works by classical authors, medieval travelers, and Renaissance cosmographers, as well as various merchants, wanderers, and missionaries, both notable and lesser-known. What emerges is a clear and comprehensive understanding of early European ideas about the Chinese language and writing system.

The Dura language : grammar and phylogeny
Schorer, Nicolas, author
Boston : Brill, [2016]
In 'The Dura Language: Grammar & Phylogeny' Nicolas Schorer provides the definite descriptive account of this hitherto poorly documented language of Lamjung, Nepal. The Dura language is effectively extinct, although attempts at revival may be undertaken by well-intentioned members of Dura ethnicity. On the basis of a comprehensive study and analysis of all of the extant Dura language material, the book outlines the phonology, nominal and verbal morphology, lexical and syntactic properties as well as the phylogenetic position of the language in unprecedented detail. The result of the phylogenetic inquiry will help explain some of the sociocultural realities associated with the Dura community in Nepal and is a significant contribution to our understanding of the linguistic landscape of the Himalayas.

Interrogative strategies : an areal typology of the languages of China
Luo, Tianhua, author
Amsterdam : John Benjamins Publishing Company, [2016]
This book deals with how to ask questions in the languages of China. The syntactic, morphological, and lexical forms for distinguishing interrogatives take centre stage; intonation is also dealt with, but more peripherally than question particles, disjunctive and negative constructions, and word order. 140 languages spoken in China are covered coming from four major families: Sino-Tibetan, Altaic, Austronesian and Austro-Asiatic, accompanied by a few mixed languages. The approach is areal-typological, i.e. these focal languages are compared to the languages of the world as represented in typological samples, and within China areal patterns of the structural variables are examined. The book will be a reference for future work on interrogatives in a typological context and for areal studies of the language situation in China and more generally East Asia.

Ch'oe, Yun, 1953- author
Victoria, TX : Dalkey Archive Press, 2016
"Ch'oe Yun's Mannequin is a novel that reflects on the meaning of beauty and its many facets of existence. The beauty of the main character, Jini, is captured through a carefree imagination that describes it as "the music of the wind," or something that can't be described in words. Through the beauty that penetrates and captivates us in fleeting moments, the novel leads us to critically reflect on the question of what true beauty is in a world where people are captivated by the beauty of advertising models in a flood of new products. In that respect, Mannequin, as the title implies, is a sad allegory on a capitalistic society in which a woman's body, artificial and standardized, becomes a product."--

A grammar of rGyalrong, Jiăomùzú (kyom-kyo) dialects : a web of relations
Prins, Marielle, author
Boston : Brill, [2017]
A Grammar of rGyalrong, Jia omuzu (Kyom-kyo) dialects. A Web of Relations' is the first full length description in English of a rGyalrong language. Marielle Prins describes the phonology, morphology and syntax for one variety of these under-researched and threatened languages. From a host of examples and texts emerges a clear picture of natural language use, creating an enduring record and a great resource for comparative and diachronic linguists. Careful analysis of the data uncovers the web of relations between individuals and all entities in their environment, to which the rGyalrong people attach great importance. The informative, clear style of writing makes this book a treasure trove for linguists as well as other interested readers.
