1 Frederick J. Newmeyer (ed.)
Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey: Volume II-Linguistic Theory: Extensions and Implications
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1989; 0521375819 / 9780521375818; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; Very Good; 
Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey is a comprehensive introduction to current research in all branches of the field of linguistics, from syntactic theory to ethnography of speaking, from signed language to the mental lexicon, from language acquisition to discourse analysis. Each chapter has been written by a specialist particularly distinguished in his or her field who has accepted the challenge of reviewing the current issues and future prospects in sufficient depth for the scholar and with sufficient clarity for the student. Each volume can be read independently and has a particular focus. Volume I covers the internal structure of the language faculty itself, while Volume II considers the evidence for, and the implications of, a generativist approach to language. Psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics are covered in Volume III, and Volume IV concentrates on sociolinguistics and the allied fields of anthropological linguistics and discourse and conversation analysis. Several of the chapters in the work concentrate on the interface between different aspects of linguistic theory or the boundaries between linguistic theory and other disciplines. Thus in both its scope and in its approach the Survey is a unique and fundamental work of reference. It undoubtedly fulfils the editor's principal aim of providing a wealth of information, insight and ideas that will excite and challenge all readers with an interest in linguistics. Contributors Frederick J. Newmeyer, Lyn Frazier, Thomas Roeper, Suzanne Flynn, Mary-Louise Kean, Susan Curtiss, Victoria A. Fromkin, Ruth Kempson, Ellen F. Prince, Jerrold M. Sadock, Per-Kristian Halvorsen, Bruce Hayes, Carol A. Padden, Derek Bickerton, Pieter Muysken, Derek Bickerton, Pieter Muysken Printed Pages: 328. 003117

Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey: Volume III: Language: The Socio-cultural Context
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1989; 0521375835 / 9780521375832; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; Very Good; 
Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey is a comprehensive introduction to current research in all branches of the field of linguistics, from syntactic theory to ethnography of speaking, from signed language to the mental lexicon, from language acquisition to discourse analysis.

Thus in both its scope and in its approach the Survey is a unique and fundamental work of reference. It undoubtedly fulfils the editor's principal aim of providing a wealth of information, insight and ideas that will excite and challenge all readers with an interest in linguistics. 'The contributions are informed, up-to-date and lucid, and many of them make unusual - in fact, unprecedented - efforts to present opposing viewpoints fairly and to look at what they have in common rather than at what divides them. ...The mixture of detached overviews and strongly argued positions works very well, in my view, and the editor is to be congratulated for the high standards that are maintained throughout. The tremendous intellectual energy and excitement of the field come through strongly, and I shan't hesitate to recommend many of the chapters to students.' -- The Times Higher Education Supplement Contents Preface; 1. Psycholinguistics: an overview Michael K. Tanenhaus; 2. Language and cognition Robyn Carston; 3. Processes in language production Merrill F. Garrett; 4. Language perception Giovanni B. Flores DíArcais; 5. The mental lexicon Karen D. Emmorey and Victoria A. Fromkin; 6. Where learning begins: initial representations for language learning Lila R. Gleitman, Henry Gleitman, Barbara Landau and Eric Wanner; 7. Second language acquisition Ellen Broselow; 8. Neurolingustics: an overview of language-brain relations in aphasia Sheila E. Blumstein; 9. The biological basis for language David Caplan; 10. Linguistics and speech-language pathology Catherine A. Jackson; 11. The evolution of human communicative behaviour William Orr Dingwall; 12. Linguistics and animal communication Richard A. Demers; Index of names; Index of subjects. Printed Pages: 368. 003119
