GET WRITING: PARAGRAPHS AND ESSAYS helps developmental students learn to think and plan before they write, and evaluate their own and others' writing, with a focus on critical thinking through features called "Critical Thinking: What Are You Trying to Say?" and "Revision: What Have You Written?" The text helps those who are struggling with writing requirements, including recent high school graduates, returning students, or those for whom English is a second language.

Kurt Vonnegut - Slaughterhouse 5It took Vonnegut more than 20 years to put his Dresden experiences into words. He explained, "there is nothing intelligent to say about a massacre. Everybody is supposed to be dead, to never say anything or want anything ever again." Slaughterhouse Five is a powerful novel incorporating a number of genres. Only those who have fought in wars can say whether it represents the experience well. However, what the novel does do is invite the reader to look at the absurdity of war. Human versus human, hedonist politicians pressing buttons and ordering millions to their deaths all for ideologies many cannot even comprehend.
The papers in this volume can be grouped into two broad, overlapping classes: those dealing primarily with case and those dealing primarily with grammatical relations. With regard to case, topics include descriptions of the case systems of two Caucasian languages, the problems of determining how many cases Russian has and whether Hungarian has a case system at all, the issue of case-combining, the retention of the dative in Swedish dialects, and genitive objects in the languages of Europe.
"Grimm Language" addresses a number of issues in the Grimms fairy tales from a (Germanic) linguist s point of view. In sections dealing with the Grimms use of regional dialect material, various grammatical constructions, and specific nouns and adjectives in their "Children s and Household Tales," the author argues that the Grimms were consciously or unconsciously following a number of objectives.
The book will be of interest not only to those interested in fairy tales, and the Grimms in particular, but also more generally to those interested in the intersection between linguistics and literary scholarship.
