BOOK EXCERPT:

The branch of science which studies language is known as linguistics. Some of the various aspects which are analyzed within this field are language meaning, language in context and language form. The study of language meaning, also known as semantics, is involved in the study of the relationship between signifiers and their denotation. The context in language refers to the frame that surrounds the event and which provides the resources in order to interpret the event appropriately. The study of form in linguistics, also known as theoretical linguistics, focuses on the nature of language and the various questions related to it. This book discusses the fundamentals as well as modern approaches of linguistics. Those with an interest in this field would find this book helpful. This book is an essential guide for both academicians and those who wish to pursue this discipline further.

A gentle introduction to programming for students and researchers interested in conducting computer-based analysis in linguistics, this book is an ideal starting point for linguists approaching programming for the first time. Assuming no background knowledge of programming, the author introduces basic notions and techniques needed for linguistics programming and helps readers to develop their understanding of electronic texts.The book includes many examples based on diverse topics in linguistics in order to demonstrate the applicability of the concepts at the heart of programming. Practical examples are designed to help the reader to:*Identify basic issues in handling language data, including Unicode processing*Conduct simple analyses in morphology/morphosyntax, and phonotactics*Understanding techniques for matching linguistic patterns*Learn to convert data into formats and data structures suitable for linguistic analysis*Create frequency lists from corpus materials to gather basic descriptive statistics on texts*Understand, obtain and 'clean up' web-based data*Design graphical user interfaces for writing more efficient and easy-to-use analysis tools.Two different types of exercise help readers to either learn to interpret and understand illustrative sample code, or to develop algorithmic thinking and solution strategies through turning a series of instructions into sample programs. Readers will be equipped with the necessary tools for designing their own extended projects.Key Features:*Ideal introduction for students of linguistics attempting to process corpus materials or literary texts for dissertations, theses or advanced research work*Linguistic examples throughout the text clearly demonstrate the application of programming theory and techniques*Coverage ranging from basic to more complex topics and methodologies enables the reader to progress at their own pace*Two chapters on the advantages of modularity and associated issues provid

To know any culture or to study any culture one must study their language . If an Indian student tries to understand British culture, S/he has to understand the linguistic structure and formation of British English (language). The colonial masters understood the importance of language in a culture, therefore they injected some ideologies to the native people, they made them think their own language as inferior, gradually the native people started taking the ruling language and culture as superior . It was called by Edward Said as "Us Other" mentality. Whatever, what we have to know in simple words is that language is an important part of any culture . A student of language must know the terms 'langue', 'parole', 'representamen', 'icon', 'index, ' etc. But before that the structure of a sentence, all the constituents of a sentence.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This is a new kind of textbook for courses in introductory linguistics. It makes clear what is important or essential, and omits what is not. It is strictly selective, highly structured, focused, to-the-point and informative. It presents material in a way that mirrors the structure of a typical semester of teaching, and integrates many exercises into the text.In doing this it meets the need of the busy student who wants the text book to get straight to the point; and it suits the instructor looking for a textbook which not only identifies key material, but integrates it with numerous exercises, engaging the student in active learning.The book organises, develops, integrates, and practices topics more thoroughly than other textbooks. Chapters are short, each corresponding, generally, to two typical class periods. They are organised in a very clear way, with numbered and labelled sections. They present information in lists and provide generous illustrative material. Each chapter concludes with an outline, a list of new concepts and terms, and with a set of short, often objective, exercises. Thus the book will serve both as a study guide and as a textbook for beginning students.Essential Introductory Linguistics is supported by an instructor's manual.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book brings together papers dealing with essential issues in applied linguistics and multilingualism that have been contributed by leading figures in these two fields and present state-of-the-art developments in theory and research. The first part includes articles touching on various aspects of multiple-language acquisition, with a particular emphasis on the role of affordances, the interfaces between language and thought, and factors influencing the process of language learning. Part Two deals with individual variations in the acquisition of additional languages, focusing in particular on the impact of such variables as age, aptitude, motivation and learning deficits. Finally, Part Three presents contributions illuminating key issues in the acquisition of different subsystems and skills, such as grammar, phonology, lexis and writing systems. Thanks to the diversity of perspectives on applied linguistics and multilingualism, as well as the cutting-edge nature of some of the proposals, this edited collection will be an important reference work and a source of inspiration for theorists and researchers.
