Dis­course struc­tur­ing mark­ers in Eng­lish
BuchcoverThis book is a con­tri­bu­tion to the grow­ing field of diachron­ic con­struc­tion gram­mar. Focus is on cor­pus evi­dence for the impor­tance of includ­ing con­ven­tion­al­ized prag­mat­ics with­in con­struc­tion gram­mar and sug­ges­tions for how to do so. The empir­i­cal domain is the devel­op­ment of Dis­course Struc­tur­ing Mark­ers in Eng­lish such as after all, also, all the same, by the way, fur­ther and more­over (also known as Dis­course Mark­ers). The term Dis­course Struc­tur­ing Mark­ers high­lights their use not only to con­nect dis­course seg­ments but also to shape dis­course coher­ence and under­stand­ing. Mono­func­tion­al Dis­course Struc­tur­ing Mark­ers like fur­ther, instead, more­over are dis­tin­guished from mul­ti­func­tion­al ones like after all and by the way. Draw­ing on usage-based work on con­struc­tion­al­iza­tion and con­struc­tion­al changes, the book is in three parts: foun­da­tion­al con­cepts, case stud­ies, and cur­rent­ly open issues in diachron­ic con­struc­tion gram­mar. These open issues are how to incor­po­rate the con­cepts sub­jec­ti­fi­ca­tion and inter­sub­jec­ti­fi­ca­tion into a con­struc­tion­al account of change, whether posi­tion in a clause is a con­struc­tion, and the nature of con­struc­tion­al net­works and how they change.

Per­for­ma­tiv­i­ty of vil­lainy and evil in Anglo­phone lit­er­a­ture and media
BuchcoverPer­for­ma­tiv­i­ty of Vil­lainy and Evil in Anglo­phone Lit­er­a­ture and Media stud­ies the per­for­ma­tive nature of evil char­ac­ters, acts and emo­tions across inter­sect­ing gen­res, dis­ci­plines and his­tor­i­cal eras. This col­lec­tion brings togeth­er schol­ars and artists with dif­fer­ent insti­tu­tion­al stand­ings, cul­tur­al back­grounds and (inter)disciplinary inter­ests with the aim of ener­giz­ing the ongo­ing dis­cus­sion of the gener­ic and the­mat­ic issues relat­ed to the rep­re­sen­ta­tion of vil­lainy and evil in lit­er­a­ture and media. The vol­ume cov­ers medieval lit­er­a­ture to con­tem­po­rary lit­er­a­ture and also exam­ines impor­tant aspects of evil in lit­er­a­ture such as social and polit­i­cal iden­ti­ty, the goth­ic and sys­temic evil prac­tices. In addi­tion to lit­er­a­ture, the book con­sid­ers exam­ples of vil­lainy in film, TV and media, reveal­ing that per­for­mance, per­for­ma­tive con­trol and maneu­ver­abil­i­ty are the com­mon char­ac­ter­is­tics of vil­lains across the dif­fer­ent lit­er­ary and filmic gen­res and eras stud­ied in the vol­ume.
