9 Chomsky, Noam Language & Thought (Anshen Transdisciplinary Lectureships in Art, Science, and t)
Moyer Bell and its subsidiar 2005 1559210761 / 9781559210768 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. As a linguist, Noam Chomsky aims not only at making a technical contribution with his generative theory of language but also at integrating his linguistic theory into a wider view of the relationship between between language and the human mind. The crux of this view is the hypothesis that human beings are born with an innate knowledge of universal principles underlying the structure of human language. Chomsky's ideas have exerted a powerful influence on the other disciplines by restoring language to a central position in cognitive psychology and in the philosophy of the mind. The wider impact on his redefinition of the subject gives him a permanent place in the intellectual history of the twentieth century.

The Discourse of Advertising, Cook, Guy
12 Cook, Guy The Discourse of Advertising
Routledge 1992 0415041716 / 9780415041713 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This comprehensive introduction to advertising discourse examines the language of contemporary advertising, not as an isolated object, but in complex interaction with the texts around it, with music and pictures and, importantly, with the people who make and experience it. Clearly explaining relevant theories of linguistics and poetics, each chapter ends with a series of stimulating exercises, and theoretical discussion is accompanied by examples from literary and sub-literary texts and recent advertisements. Putting forward the controversial view that adverts answer a need for play and display in contemporary society, Guy Cook explores the social function of advertising, moving from the uses of sound and sight, through creativity and word play to the poetic intricacies of the text to assess the effect of these on the people who receive adverts everyday, and whose identity is partly constructed by them.

Grooming, Gossip and the Evolution of Language, Dunbar, Robin
16 Dunbar, Robin Grooming, Gossip and the Evolution of Language
Faber & Faber Non Fiction 2011 0571173977 / 9780571173976 Paperback Very Good 
Did mankind evolve unusually large brains simply in order to gossip? Primat es differ from other animals by the intensity of their social relationships , by the amount of time they spend grooming one another. Not just a matter of hygiene, grooming is all about cementing bonds, making friends and influ encing your fellow ape. Early humans, in their characteristic large groups of 150 or so, would have had to spend almost half their time in mutual groo ming. Instead, Professor Robin Dunbar argues, they evolved a more efficient mechanism: language. It seems there is nothing idle about idle chatter. Ha ving a good gossip ensures that a dynamic group - of hunter-gatherers, sold iers, workmates - remains cohesive. Men and women 'gossip' equally, but men tend to talk about themselves, while women talk more about other people, w orking to strengthen the female-female relationships that underpin both hum an and primate societies. Until now, most anthropologists have assumed that language developed in male-male relationships, during activities such as h unting. Dunbar's intriguing research suggests that, to the contrary, langua ge evolved among women.

20 Kempson, Ruth M. Semantic Theory (Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics)
Cambridge University Press 1977 0521292093 / 9780521292092 Paperback Near Fine 
A read copy, but no markings throughout, spine unblemished, not an ex-lib e dition: Semantics is a bridge discipline between linguistics and philosophy; but linguistics student are rarely able to reach that bridge, let alone cross it to inspect and assess the activity on the other side. Professor Kempson's textbook seeks particularly to encourage such exchanges. She deals with the standard linguistic topics like componential analysis, semantic universals and the syntax-semantics controversy. But she also provides for students with no training in philosophy or logic an introduction to such central topics in the philosophy of language as logical form, truth, speech acts, analyticity, entailment and presupposition. The exposition throughout is deliberately argumentative rather than descriptive, introducing the student step by step to the major problems in theoretical semantics. Special emphasis is placed on the need to consider individual arguments within the overall perspective of semantics as an integral part of general linguistic theory. Written primarily as a textbook for undergraduates and graduates in linguistics departments, this book will also be useful to undergraduates in philosophy and in psychology where linguistics is a part of their course.
