THE DISCOURSE OF ADVERTISING, Cook, Guy
9 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
12 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.

14 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.

LANGUAGE ACQUISITION AND LANGUAGE SOCIALIZATION: ECOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES (A DVANCES IN APPLIED LINGUISTICS), Kramsch, Claire
15 Kramsch, Claire LANGUAGE ACQUISITION AND LANGUAGE SOCIALIZATION: ECOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES (A DVANCES IN APPLIED LINGUISTICS)
Bloomsbury Academic 2003 0826453724 / 9780826453723 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 is an outstanding collection of papers by top scholars in a range of disciplines who shed stimulating, complementary insights into the social, c ognitive and semiotic frameworks that shape both the acquisition of languag e, and the constitution of social actors through that process. The intentio nally loose ecological framing of the volume provides an arena within which a range of perspectives, all united by their opposition to a mechanistic v iew of language acquisition, can enter into dialogue with each other. This is a most stimulating collection, with a range of insightful investigations of settings as diverse as an autistic child learning to interact with othe rs on the playing field, professional gate-keeping encounters, and foreign language classrooms.' Professor Charles Goodwin, University of California at Los Angeles The book brings together well-known scholars in two relatively distinct fie lds, language acquisition and language socialization, and from a variety of orientations within applied linguistics to describe language development f rom a relational perspective. The papers in this volume are a response to three main questions: 1) What conceptual models best capture the ecological nature of language learning? 2) What research approaches are best likely to illuminate the relationship between language and social structure? 3) How is educational success defined for language acquisition and language socialization?

9780262133371 1998 0262133377 / 9780262133371 Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
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. Pattern recognition is deemed central to cognition. It appears to follow an optimal algorithm in a wide variety of behaviors and situations. Perceiving Talking Faces proposes an invariant law of pattern recognition to describe how continuously perceived information such as speech input is processed to achieve perception of a category. The book details the author's extensive series of experiments on the use of bimodal cues in speech perception as well as the application of the Fuzzy Logical Model of Perception in speech and a variety of other domains. It presents a blend of theory, mathematical model testing, empirical results, and applications. The author's underlying purpose is to describe and defend a universal principle of psychological theory.The final part of the book presents the science and applications of the synthetic talking face that was used in most of the speech perception experiments. The CD-ROM that accompanies the book allows the reader to experience the intriguing perceptual phenomena directly; it also provides a valuable research and teaching resource.

Cambridge University Press 1989 0521375835 / 9780521375832 Paperback Very Good Signed
A read copy, but no markings throughout, spine unblemished, not an ex-lib e dition: 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 reference work. It undoubtedly fulfills the editor's aims of providing a wealth of information, insight, and ideas that will excite and challenge all readers with an interest in linguistics.
