A con­trastive view of dis­course mark­ers: dis­course mark­ers of say­ing in Eng­lish and French
BuchcoverThis book is a com­par­a­tive cor­pus-based study of dis­course mark­ers based on verbs of say­ing in Eng­lish and French. Based on a wide com­pa­ra­ble web cor­pus, the book inves­ti­gates how dis­course mark­ers work in dis­course, and com­pares their dif­fer­ences of posi­tion, scope and col­lo­ca­tions both cross-lin­guis­ti­cal­ly and with­in sin­gle lan­guages. The author posi­tions this study with­in the wider epis­te­mo­log­i­cal back­ground of the French-speak­ing ‘enun­cia­tive’ tra­di­tion and the Eng­lish-speak­ing ‘prag­mat­ic’ tra­di­tion, and it will be of par­tic­u­lar inter­est to stu­dents and schol­ars of seman­tics, prag­mat­ics and con­trastive lin­guis­tics.

Nar­rat­ing desire: moral con­so­la­tion and sen­ti­men­tal fic­tion in fif­teenth-cen­tu­ry Spain
BuchcoverNar­rat­ing Desire: Moral Con­so­la­tion and Sen­ti­men­tal Fic­tion in Fif­teenth-Cen­tu­ry Spain pro­pos­es a new tax­on­o­my and con­cep­tu­al frame for the con­tro­ver­sial Iber­ian genre of sen­ti­men­tal fic­tion. It traces its ori­gin to late-medieval edu­ca­tion in rhetoric, phi­los­o­phy, and med­i­cine as the foun­da­tion for vir­tu­ous liv­ing. In estab­lish­ing the genre’s bound­aries and cul­tur­al under­pin­nings, Nar­rat­ing Desire empha­sizes the cru­cial link between East­ern and West­ern Iber­ian sen­ti­men­tal tra­di­tions, and offers close read­ings of a vast array of Cata­lan and Castil­ian fic­tions, trans­la­tions, nar­ra­tive poems, let­ters, and doc­tri­nal trea­tis­es: the Cata­lan trans­la­tions of Boethius’s Con­so­la­tion of Phi­los­o­phy, Santillana’s El sueño, Bernat Metge’s Lo som­ni, Romeu Llull’s Lo despropi­a­ment d’amor, Pedro Moner’s La noche and L’anima d’Oliver, Rodríguez del Padrón’s Sier­vo libre de amor, Car­rós Par­do de la Casta’s Regoneix­ença, Roís de Corella’s Par­la­ment and Tragè­dia de Calde­sa, Pedro de Portugal’s Sáti­ra, Francesc Alegre’s Som­ni and Raon­a­ment, Pere Torroella’s cor­re­spon­dence, and the well-known works by Diego de San Pedro (Arnalte y Lucen­da; Cár­cel de Amor) and Juan de Flo­res (Grisel y Mirabel­la; Gri­malte y Gradis­sa) among oth­ers.
From them, Miguel-Pren­des sin­gles out a group of dream visions whose inter­pre­tive and com­po­si­tion­al prac­tices sire the sen­ti­men­tal genre. Social inter­ac­tions lead to either a con­so­la­to­ry or a sen­ti­men­tal form, which imply very dif­fer­ent ways of see­ing: the alle­gor­i­cal gaze of con­so­la­tion gives way to nar­ra­tive fic­tion. In dis­tort­ing moral con­ver­sion, the sen­ti­men­tal genre her­alds the nov­el.
