John Benjamins Publishing would like to call your attention to the
following new title in the field of Pragmatics:

FUNCTION AND STRUCTURE IN HONOR OF SUSUMO KUNO
Akio Kamio & Ken-ichi Takami (eds.)

This collection of papers on functional syntax shows the development
of a specific stream of functional linguistics initiated by Susumu
Kuno of Harvard University. Inspired by Prague School linguists such
as Jan Firbas and Vilem Mathesius, Kuno developed a more comprehensive
and theory-oriented approach and lined it with the American formalist
approach of generative grammar. His approach is thus a unique
combination of functionalism and formalism that constantly urges the
promotions of interactions between these two major trends in
linguistics. The papers in this collection coherently deal with
functional aspects of linguistics from a wide variety of perspectives
such as theoretical, applicational, experimental and diachronic
aspects incorporating the functional concept advocated by Kuno.<br>
Contributions by: Noriko Akatsuka; Jacqueline Guillemin-Flescher; Akio
Kamio and Margaret Thomas; Becky Kennedy; Kiri Lee; Use Men et. al.;
