Download A Grammar Of Kayardild book, The series builds an extensive collection of high quality descriptions of languages around the world. Each volume offers a comprehensive grammatical description of a single language together with fully analyzed sample texts and, if appropriate, a word list and other relevant information which is available on the language in question. There are no restrictions as to language family or area, and although special attention is paid to hitherto undescribed languages, new and valuable treatments of better known languages are also included. No theoretical model is imposed on the authors; the only criterion is a high standard of scientific quality.

Dying Words

by Nicholas Evans, Dying Words Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dying Words book, The next century will see more than half of the world’s 6,000 languages become extinct, and most of these will disappear without being adequately recorded. Written by one of the leading figures in language documentation, this fascinating book explores what humanity stands to lose as a result. Explores the unique philosophy, knowledge, and cultural assumptions of languages, and their impact on our collective intellectual heritage Questions why such linguistic diversity exists in the first place, and how can we can best respond to the challenge of recording and documenting these fragile oral traditions while they are still with us Written by one of the leading figures in language documentation, and draws on a wealth of vivid examples from his own field experience Brings conceptual issues vividly to life by weaving in portraits of individual ‘last speakers’ and anecdotes about linguists and their discoveries

Morphologie

by G. E. Booij, Morphologie Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Morphologie book, Morphologie ist die Lehre von den sprachlichen Formen, genauer: von den Flexionsformen und Stammen von Wortern. Somit ist sie der Teil der Grammatik, dessen Regeln auf Einheiten von hochstens Wortumfang Bezug nehmen, sowie gleichzeitig auch ein Teil des Lexikons, namlich insoweit komplexe Stamme nicht regelhaft gebildet sind. Das Handbuch informiert sowohl uber Grundbegriffe und theoretische Ansatze der Disziplin als auch uber morphologische Strukturen verschiedener Sprachen. Es hat zum Ziel, den heutigen Wissensstand der Morphologie auf allgemeinem Niveau umfassend darzustellen und an hinreichend vielen Beispielen zu illustrieren. Die grundliche Erlauterung etablierter Begriffe und gesicherter Erkenntnisse, gegebenenfalls erganzt um die unvoreingenommene Darstellung alternativer Problemlosungen, hat dabei Vorrang vor der Vorfuhrung zeitgenossischer Stromungen und neuartiger Ansatze.

Catching Language

by Felix K. Ameka, Catching Language Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Catching Language book, Despite a recent surge of awareness of the need to document little-known languages, there is no book that focusses on the manifold issues that face the author of a descriptive grammar. This volume brings together contributors who approach the problem from a range of angles.Most have written descriptive grammars themselves, but others represent different types of reader. Among the topics they address are: overall issues of grammar design, the complementary roles of outsider and native speaker grammarians, the balance between grammar and lexicon, cross-linguistic comparability, the role of explanation in grammatical description, the interplay of theory and a range of fieldwork methods in language description, the challenges of describing languages in their cultural and historical context, and the tensions between linguistic particularity, established practice of particular schools of linguistic description and the need for a universally commensurable analytic framework.

Semantic And Lexical Universals

by Cliff Goddard, Semantic And Lexical Universals Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Semantic And Lexical Universals book, This set of papers represents a unique collection; it is the first attempt ever to empirically test a hypothetical set of semantic and lexical universals across a number of genetically and typologically diverse languages. In fact the word 'collection' is not fully appropriate in this case, since the papers report research undertaken specifically for the present volume, and shaped by the same guidelines. They constitute parallel and strictly comparable answers to the same set of questions, coordinated effort with a common aim, and a common methodology.The goal of identifying the universal human concepts found in all languages, is of fundamental importance, both from a theoretical and a practical point of view, since these concepts provide the basis of the “psychic unity of mankind”, underlying the clearly visible diversity of human cultures. They also allow us to better understand that diversity itself, because they provide a common measure, without which no precise and meaningful comparisons are possible at all. A set of truly universal (or even near-universal) concepts can provide us with an invaluable tool for interpreting, and explaining all the culture-specific meanings encoded in the language-and-culture systems of the world. It can also provide us with a tool for explaining meanings across cultures — in education, business, trade, international relations, and so on. The book contains 13 chapters on individual languages including Japanese (by Masayuki Onishi), Chinese (by Hilary Chappel), Thai (by Anthony Diller), Ewe (Africa, by Felix Ameka), Miskitu languages of South America (by Kenneth Hall), Australian Aboriginal languages Aranda, Yankunytjatjara and Kayardild (by Jean Harkins & David Wilkins, Cliff Goddard, and Nicholas Evans), the Austronesian languages Samoan, Longgu, Acehnese and Mangap-Mbula (by Ulrike Mosel, Deborah Hill, Mark Durie and Robert Bugenhagen), the Papuan language Kalam (by Andrew Pawley), and, last but not least French (by Bert Peters).In addition to the chapters on individual languages the book includes three theoretical chapters; “Semantic theory and semantic universals” (by Goddard), “Introducing lexical primitives” (by Goddard and Wierzbicka), and “Semantic primitives across languages: a critical review” (by Wierzbicka).
