The dominant view of many linguists and educators has been that Hong Kong English is a variety of the language that is derived from, and dependent on, the metropolitan norm of British English. It has been argued that English in Hong Kong was never 'nativized' as in other Asian societies, and that it has not deserved the recognition accorded to other varieties of Asian English. The contributions to this book challenge that view in a number of ways. In addressing sociolinguistic, structural, and literary issues, they provide an up-to-date survey of current use of Hong Kong English, and redress the question of its autonomy in terms of both distinctive linguistic features and the growing literary creativity of the variety. An original and highly informed discussion on the futures for Hong Kong English, and chapters providing additional resources for the study of the variety, are also included.

This volume provides new insights into the nature of the Early Modern English discourse markers marry, well and why through the analysis of three corpora (A Corpus of English Dialogues, 1560-1760, the Parsed Corpus of Early English Correspondence, and the Penn-Helsinki Parsed Corpus of Early Modern English). By combining both quantitative and qualitative approaches in the study of pragmatic markers, innovative findings are reached about their distribution throughout the period 1500-1760, their attestation in different speech-related text types as well as similarities and differences in their functions. Additionally, this work engages in a sociopragmatic study, based on the sociopragmatically annotated Drama Corpus of almost a quarter of a million words, to enhance our understanding about their use by characters of different social status and gender. This volume therefore constitutes an essential piece of the puzzle in our attempt to gain a full picture of discourse marker use.

This work contains a combination of writing and grammar designed to provide a thorough study of English syntax. The book assumes that readers are familiar with basic grammatical terms such as "noun," "subject," and "clause" and reviews terminology that may be less familiar, such as "gerund" and "object complement." The authors go on to discuss the idiomatic options and limits of English. Travels Through the English Sentence will provide a global learning experience through its use of sentence examples that illustrate the wisdom, wit, idiosyncrasies and peculiarities of different countries. The book is an effective teaching tool because it requires students to invent their own sentences using all the syntax patterns. Readers having trouble with certain terms will appreciate the book's index which allows for easy access to explanations. This pragmatic and detailed text will provide an enjoyable learning experience for those who want to learn the syntax and grammar of the English language. Written by a person who has himself learned English as a second language, Travels Through the English Sentence will appeal to students in intermediate and advanced ESL courses.

Empirically validated techniques to accelerate learners' uptake of 'chunks' demonstrate that pathways for insightful chunk-learning become available if one is willing to question the assumption that lexis is arbitrary. Care is taken to ensure that the pedagogical proposals are in accordance with insights from vocabulary research generally.

natural English is a syllabus strand which enables students to integrate frequent, natural language into their language framework. Students learn to use real language naturally, through thinking and rehearsal time, confidence-building practice, and task-centred speaking. The listening syllabus teaches students how to listen. A slot-in listening booklet features the tapescripts plus decoding and pronunciation exercises. Teacher's Book lesson plans, a product of the authors' teacher training expertise, talk teachers through the course materials. Teacher's Book chapters cover teaching principles, techniques, and ideas, plus a selected bibliography. Humour engages and motivates through cartoons, and the listening and reading material.

Jennie Skerl and Robin Lydenberg have selected twenty-five critical essays on Burroughs that reflect the historical reception of his work, both positive and negative, decade by decade, and that represent the best essays written about him. The essays cover Burroughs’ major novels—including the cut-up and new trilogies—the censorship issue, and his work in film and painting. The chronological organization brings into critical focus the shift from moral questions raised by the novels’ content, through examinations of Burroughs’ relationship to humanism and modernism, and finally to more focused literary and linguistic issues. In their introduction, the editors survey the progress of Burroughs’ critical reception and examine the reasons for the varied and intense responses to the work and the theoretical assumptions behind those responses. The reviewers include prominent figures such as Mary McCarthy and Marshall McLuhan as well as major academic critics such as Cary Nelson, Tony Tanner, and Ihab Hassan.

When we communicate, we communicate in a certain context, and this context shapes our utterances. Natural languages are context-bound and deixis 'concerns the ways in which languages encode or grammaticalise features of the context of utterance or speech event, and thus also concerns ways in which the interpretation of utterances depends on the analysis of that context of utterance' (Stephen Levinson). The systems of deixis and demonstratives in the Oceanic languages represented in the contributions to this volume illustrate the fascinating complexity of spatial reference in these languages. Some of the studies presented here highlight social aspects of deictic reference illustrating de Leon's point that 'reference is a collaborative task' . It is hoped that this anthology will contribute to a better understanding of this area and provoke further studies in this extremely interesting, though still rather underdeveloped, research area.

Intended to illuminate current understanding of how the reader's cognition and language and the text's structure affect the processing of prose, this volume contains articles written by educators, linguists, psychologists, and artificial intelligence experts on issues of comprehension research. The first part of the book examines reading comprehension as a cognitive process. The second part explores the relationships between important aspects of language study and reading, while part three focuses on the relationship between text structure and reading comprehension. The 12 essays discuss the following: (1) understanding comprehension; (2) cognitive monitoring in reading; (3) the linearity of reading; (4) consciousness and reading comprehension; (5) an artificial intelligence (AI) perspective on reading comprehension; (6) language development and reading; (7) word finding, word organizing, and reading; (8) comprehension rates in listening or reading; (9) prose structure in content areas; (10) coherent and cohesive harmony; (11) cognitive psychology and readability; and (12) continuities and discontinuities in readability and prose comprehension.
