Abstract:

This volume explores various hitherto under-researched relationships
between languages and their discourse-cultural settings. The first two
sections analyze the complex interplay between lexico-grammatical
organization and communicative contexts. Part I focuses on structural
options in syntax, deepening the analysis of information-packaging
strategies. Part II turns to lexical studies, covering such matters as
human perception and emotion, the psychological understanding of 'home' and
'abroad', the development of children's emotional life and the relation
between lexical choice and sexual orientation. The final chapters consider
how new techniques of contrastive linguistics and pragmatics are
contributing to the primary field of application for contrastive analysis,
language teaching and learning. The book will be of special interest to
scholars and students of linguistics, discourse analysis and cultural
studies and to those entrusted with teaching European languages and
 cultures. The major languages covered are Akan, Dutch, English, Finnish,
French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish.
