This book investigates four modern plays, Harold Pinter's The Homecoming, Arnold Wesker's Roots, Terence Rattigan's In Praise of Love, and Alan Ayckbourn's Just Between Ourselves, and shows how the dialogue of each 'works' with respect to ordinary conversation. By considering both linguistic and literary perspectives, this work extends the boundaries of traditional criticism and demonstrates how the linguistic study of talk can contribute to our understanding of drama dialogue.

There are more native speakers of Sino-Tibetan languages than of any other language family in the world. Our records of these languages are among the oldest for any human language, and the amount of active research on them has multiplied in the last few decades. Now in its second edition and fully updated to include new research, The Sino-Tibetan Languages includes overview articles on individual languages, with an emphasis on the less commonly described languages, as well as descriptions and comments on the subgroups in which they occur. There are overviews of the whole family on genetic classification and language contact, syntax and morphology, and also on word order typology. There are also more detailed overview articles on the phonology, morphosyntax, and writing system of just the Sinitic side of the family. Supplementing these overviews are articles on Shanghainese, Cantonese and Mandarin dialects. Tibeto-Burman is reviewed by genetic or geographical sub-group, with overview articles on some of the major groups and areas, and there are also detailed descriptions of 41 individual Tibeto-Burman languages, written by world experts in the field. Designed for students and researchers of Asian languages, The Sino-Tibetan Languages is a detailed overview of the field. This book is invaluable to language students, experts requiring concise, but thorough, information on related languages, and researchers working in historical, typological and comparative linguistics.

The Survey of English Dialects (SED) is the only detailed nation wide dialect survey which has ever been conducted in England. The SED is a unique repository of data on the traditional dialects of England in the mid-twentieth century. This remarkable record is a valuable resource for scholars in the fields of British English dialectology, sociolinguistics, and English historical linguistics. The SED fieldwork was undertaken in predominantly rural communities in England in the middle of the twentieth century, at a time when social, domestic and working life was undergoing very significant changes. The SED is thus a record of speech which reflects a society different in many ways from today, and as such affords the possibility of comparison which is instructive to those engaged in all types of study of linguistics today. The SED is available as a complete set, or in the following volumes and parts: Introduction: 0-415-18508-4: Volume 1: Six Northern Counties and the Isle of Man Volume 1, Part 1: 0-415-18509-2: Volume 1, Part 2: 0-415-18518-6: Volume 1, Part 3: 0-415-18511-4: Volume 2: The West Midlands Volume 2, Part 1: 0-415-18512-2: Volume 2, Part 2: 0-415-18513-0: Volume 2, Part 3: 0-415-18514-9: Volume 3: The East Midland Counties and East Anglia Volume 3, Part 1: 0-415-18515-7: Volume 3, Part 2: 0-415-18516-5: Volume 3, Part 3: 0-415-18517-3: Volume 4: The Southern Counties Volume 4, Part 1: 0-415-18518-1: Volume 4, Part 2: 0-415-18519-X: Volume 4, Part 3: 0-415-18520-3:

This two-volume collection brings together papers first presented at the AILA Congress in 1987. In volume I, the overall focus is on the individual language learner, and how that individual develops a command of a language (first or second) in home and classroom settings. The papers in the second volume are concerned with communities and discuss both the nature of, and reasons for, language maintenance and shift. Papers were selected that would provide a sense of present achievement and future directions in applied linguistics, and will be of interest to all those who wish to discover more about this area.
