Contexts of Subordination: Cognitive, typological and discourse perspectivesContexts of Subordination: Cognitive, typological and discourse perspectives is a collection of articles that approaches linguistic subordination as a semantico-grammatical and pragmatic phenomenon. The volume brings together cognitive, interactional and typological perspectives, and is characterised by extensive use of multi-genre data. The collection aims at a more precise understanding of subordination by emphasizing its pragmatic and contextual nature. Subordination and its linguistic realizations are studied from the perspective of language in its actual contexts of use, as an interactional resource available to language users, in both written and spoken language.

My Friend Tom: The Poet-Playwright Tennessee WilliamsMy Friend Tom is at once Smith's critical analysis of Williams's early work in poetry and drama, a brief biography of Williams during his development stages as a writer, and a moving meditation on his friend's career from Williams's early failures and ambiguities to fame and notoriety.

Taking as her focus the work of Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, and Vernon Lee (the first novelist to use the word 'empathy'), Kirsty Martin explores how modernist writers thought about questions of sympathetic response.

Comedy and the Feminine Middlebrow Novel: Elizabeth Von Arnim and Elizabeth Taylor
0
 
 
Comedy and the Feminine Middlebrow Novel: Elizabeth Von Arnim and Elizabeth TaylorElizabeth von Arnim (1866–1941) and Elizabeth Taylor (1912–75) wrote witty and entertaining novels about the domestic lives of middle-class women. Widely read and enjoyed, their work was often dismissed as middlebrow. Brown argues that their skilful use of comedy and irony worked as devices to provide the receptive reader with a subversive commentary on the cruelties and disappointments of life. She traces the critical reception of their novels from the publication of von Arnim's Christopher and Columbus (1919) to Taylor's In a Summer Season (1961).

Covering a broad range of empirical domains, the contributors of this volume examine the role of Economy in syntax and in syntactic interfaces with phonology and semantics, and their implications for processing.
