Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"


Book Information

   

Title: A Natural History of Infixation
Written By: Alan C.L Yu
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199279388
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

The first cross-linguistic study of infixation explores its prosodic,
phonological, and morphological characteristics, considers its diverse
functions, and formulates a general theory to explain the rules and
constraints by which it is governed. It examines 154 infixation patterns
from over a hundred languages, compares their formal properties and
explores their diachronic origins. The book will interest phonologists,
morphologists, typologists, and historical linguists of all theoretical
persuasions.
