Linguistics, Language and Verbal ArtThis book takes as its central theme the relationship between verbal art and language. After first establishing a methodology, Hasan goes on to present a detailed analysis of how verbal art is constructed out of language, using a poem and a short story as examples. She then provides the theoretical framework, arguing that the understanding and evaluation of verbal art logically depends on an explicit understanding of human language as a socially shared resource for meaning.

Irregularities in Modern EnglishThis book, which appeared first in a Danish version in 1980 and subsequently in an English translation in 1986, reverses the history of the English language: it takes present-day English ‘irregularities’ in grammar and spelling as its point of departure, providing historical explanations only to the extent that they illustrate modern forms. A number of comparisons with developments in other Germanic languages are given, not only with Danish phenomena as in the original Danish edition, but also with Dutch and German ones.
